The "Ninja of Protection" safeguarding his answer was amusing....hehehe. I like his style. None shall pass!
I can see why they answer some of the questions this way though, as I have done it myself as a kid! Some of the mind numbingly inane sh*t they interrogate you about beggars belief.....even at the age of 10 I can clearly recall thinking "F*cking what?
You've got to be taking the p*ss" (Too young to be swearing, thinks the cynic? Geordies are not just born swearing, we are prodigiously profane in utero
, too! Not unlike Aussies in that respect.)
I remember there was controversial subject which was made compulsory called "General Studies".....which was so apocalyptically, offensively pointless and devoid of all reason or utility I refused point blank to answer a single question seriously; treating the entire test paper with the utter, risible contempt it deserved. Apparently, the answers I wrote in my scathingly bitter broadside had the entire Teaching staff of the school in paroxysms of laughter, (they told my mother at a PTA meeting) and they photocopied the paper and circulated it around the staff rooms of the North Tyneside school system.
Turns out later that many of the staff actually agreed with what I had wrote. Never underestimate kids. They know more than you may think, and can be incredibly perceptive at times, especially when so gloriously unfettered by the inconvenient shackles of Social mores and tact. Not one single f*ck was given that day.
I remember it well. Oh to be so free again.
