A British child freaked out his teachers so badly with his inability to properly pronounce 'cucumber' that his pre-school recommended him for a counter-terrorism program.
According to Reason, the boy had even – get this - drawn a stick figure of a man cutting a vegetable with a giant knife.
The incident happened in November, but the boy's mother waited months to tell the media about the incident.
According to The Telegraph, she had the following exchange with school staff.
“I said: ‘When you look at me, from where do I look like a terrorist?’ and she [staff member] said: ‘Well, did Jimmy Savile look like a paedophile?'”
Remember clock bomb boy Ahmed who brought a clock that looked like a bomb to school?
Remember how he got invited by the White House by Obama himself? Remember how he received a bunch of cool tech gifts from companies? All because he took the case off of a clock – causing it to look like a bomb from a Hollywood film - and pretended it was something he made?
In one instance we have a boy who – it can be argued – wanted to cause trouble.
Here we have a boy who has trouble pronouncing cucumber.
As someone who used to pronounce 'lamp' as 'wamp' up until kindergarten, I can't help but feel for the kid who most likely has no idea what a cooker bomb is, let alone what one looks like.
Maybe these teachers would benefit from a hot date with a cucumber. Anything to straighten them out and put them at ease.
