Anonymous asked: I thought the "keep away" was ridiculous. There is no way a teacher is going to stand there talking to another adult and ignore that kind of behavior. I wanted to smack Mrs. Ruiz. Pretty much ALL the out of control classroom scenes pulled me right out of the episode. I did enjoy the more quiet classroom scenes.

I remember playing a lighthearted, good-natured version of the “keep away” game with the paraprofessional to my 4th (I think) grade class (so obviously older than this was supposed to be), but if we’d hurt him in the process, there would’ve been a problem. The second Castle hit the ground would’ve been the point where all games would’ve been over.

I will say, though, when I was in the second grade, there was a child (just one, not an entire class) who was so unruly, his desk had to sit directly beside the teacher’s, away from the other students because he would throw things at the rest of us and yell at us routinely.

But yeah, even though I know this was an homage to Kindergarten Cop, I’m not really a fan of the idea that children always have to be portrayed as uncivilized, smartass banshees. There should’ve been consequences when class bully kid was being a smartass to him, and especially when Castle hit the deck, because he was there on behalf of the NYPD. That wouldn’t (shouldn’t) have happened if it were someone like Ryan or Espo - a full-fledged cop.

There were a lot of things about the episode that weren’t realistic, yes.  I mean, Castle raised a daughter.  And as sweet and mature and wonderful a child she was, she definitely had some meltdowns.  Castle would know how to enforce order in a loving and gentle manner.  Also, I don’t believe for a second that Castle wasn’t the type of dad who volunteered to chaperone class trips or to help out as class parent —he’s definitely been in a second grade classroom before.  

But obviously they needed Castle to act the part of the kid here to differentiate himself from the clearly kind Mrs. Ruiz.  In the real world, yeah, Mrs. Ruiz would’ve been all over that.  But also in the real world, Emily would most likely have been suspended for punching another student in this age of “zero tolerance.”  I’m chalking up this episode as a fumbled ode to Kindergarten Cop and focusing forever on the fairy princess scene.  :D  

Yes, this. Exactly.


Have any of you actually been in a classroom full of 2nd graders? Not trying to be rude or anything, just asking. And lots of classrooms are like that, because children CAN get out of control. And all it takes is one student, Jason, to cause chaos. Without him, that class wouldn’t have acted like that. And zero tolerance? 8 year olds aren’t held to as high of a standard. They are punished, but most wouldn’t be suspended. We just didn’t see Emily be punished.

I have, (my grandmother worked with preK-3rd. I used to help). It CAN get like that. But mostly, Hanning was parodying specific stuff from Kindergarten Cop. Which isn’t really a surprise the show does that a lot.

I’ve never seen the movie. But I do know they parody things a lot. I just feel like people really don’t understand how ridiculous things can get. You’re not dealing with a room full of adults here. They’re eight. My sister just turned nine, but last year, a girl in her second grade class socked another kid, basically the same thing happened as on the show. Except that there wasn’t an adult involved, as with Castle inadvertently telling her to attack him. She didn’t get suspended, but she sure as hell didn’t have any recess for the next two weeks. And she sat with the teacher for lunch. Now, a fourth grader in the same situation wouldn’t be so lucky, they’d be suspended.
But with the whole “keep away thing”, the teacher was trying to teach Castle a lesson. He was messing with her kids, and she didn’t want him to. She let it go until he got hurt, at that moment she called it quits.

Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made from—things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it.Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve—bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this.There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.But, hey, at least it tastes good, right?High five, America!


oh my god

10,000 years from now on the dawn of a new civilization where we are all just brains in jars flying spaceships through the vast unknowable void, i will still be laughing my ass off at “bitch that’s the tubby custard machine”. this i vow.

everybody stop what you’re doing, its a cat cleaning a baby

"Stupid furless humans can’t take care of their kitten, I have to do everything myself."

My favourite thing is baby sitting up thinking “What the fuck is that?”  Then seeing the cat, thinks “Very well, continue.”
