Mr. Skull’s Kindergarten Class

This is the seventh installment of my “Victimizing Other Bloggers” series.  If you would like to be featured in a future post, click on the “Victimhood Can Be Yours” tab at the top of the page and leave a comment.
My posts in this series have taken a turn towards grown-up themes lately and I had expected that trend to continue.  And then I visited Sami116’s blog.  Unfortunately, nothing about Sami’s blog inspired unclean thoughts.  But that wasn’t a surprise; a blogger who uses crayons as his header image isn’t going to send anyone’s mind to the gutter.  So maybe he should become a kindergarten teacher…

What child wouldn't go batty for a teacher who looks like this?

His “About” page shows that his presentation already fits the younger age group.  Here’s what he writes:

“This blog is about things and their practicality and how they do or don’t affect our lives. This is a light hearted attempt at bringing to fore some of the not so important things in life.”

It’s inspiring, and I’ve decided that I’d like to be his first kindergarten student.  Therefore: I’ve taken the liberty of drawing a few pictures about the not-so-important topics Sami teaches about so lightheartedly:


Bomb blasts in Mumbai


Dangerous bus rides


And this last one will require a little explanation…

Sami writes:

“A truck lay on its side across the road. Massive chunks of watermelon that had been on board now lay scattered across the floor.People from all directions hurried towards the scene, each one keen on analyzing the extent of the damage done and pass their verdict. No one in particular seemed moved by what had happened . A few feet from the overturned truck a small crowd had gathered. As I encroached, the bloody sight came into my view. The truck driver lay on his back, drenched in blood. His wounds were all exposed. Massive pieces of his flesh were missing. He kept saying something in an unfamiliar language. It sounded like a prayer.

I was witness to this site when I was 11 years old.”


Even though I’m supposed to be thrashing Sami in this post, I have to admit that he’s doing an excellent job of taking unimportant topics and making them enjoyable for his crayon-wielding audience.  Bravo!
