hey young dude, where's the bathroom? dinosaur comics, by my students

Saturday, October 17, 2009 | |

You may be familiar with Dinosaur Comics, a pretty awesome webcomic written by a guy named Ryan North. You know, it's the one with the dinosaurs who talk a lot and the artwork that never changes, only the dialogue. In the fanart section of the site are the hilariously surreal results from a couple of English teachers in Japan and Korea who gave out blank printouts of the templates to their students and had them fill them in as a writing exercise. I did the same thing last month and had way too much fun. Here are a couple:

This was from Leao, one of my 1st graders.
it is fun

And this was from Jake, in 5th grade.
Hey, Young dude where's the bathroom?

Hahahahaha! These are awesome! We did this at my school, too. They were so creative. Most of my students wrote about things blowing up. ~lol~
