As befits such a strange school, the tales are a bit strange as well. In one, Jason is stuck to his seat by a large wad of chewing gum. His teacher tries throwing ice water on him (to chill the gum to brittleness). She even contemplates cutting his pants off. Finally, he falls from his upside-down position when kissed (ugh!) by a girl. In another tale, Kathy, who assumes no one will likes her is proved right, or the story of Bebe, who draws quickly but without artistic merit; or the story of D.J., whose smile is contagious but needs a reason to smile.
