Halloween clones

Pin It When I entered my classroom yesterday morning for our Halloween festivities, one would have thought that it was the set for Invasion of the Body Snatchers. As I strode across the classroom, I found myself facing not only one or two, but three young men sporting similarly-familiar spiked hair, dress shirts, ties, slacks, and name tags indicating who they all were.

Remember that old expression which says that it is our actions which speak far louder than our words ever will?

These boys’ actions spoke not only loudly, but clearly as well.

I’m still flattered.



As an additional holiday treat, click here. Just know, it's probably inappropriate, but that's why I love it.

Those are 4 very sharp looking men in that picture. Love the flaming bag of you know what!

Richard & Natalie said...

Flattered...you should be. The "Z Squad" was very cool indeed.
Thanks for the "treat" for visiting your blog on Halloween. It made us laugh and you have to have a sense of humor like that in order to teach 5th graders!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN TF!!!

Corine said...

That "treat" had me laughing out loud. :D

And, I have to agree with mama... those boys look almost, (but not quite), as cool and good looking as you. ;D You must be quite a teacher to be so emulated!

A Lark said...

Nice wolverine hairdo. (:

Meg said...

I'll agree with Corine. The boys looks cool and good looking but not as much as you do :P

Linn said...

Now that is completely awesome.

Rachel said...

Nothing is more complimentary then young ones wanting to be just like you!! Very cool.

Loved the flaming bag of poo. This afternoon I was out riding horses on the river trail and when they poo......you have to get off and kick the poo off the trail so my boots already look like they've stomped some flaming poo. :)

Lars said...

Enjoyed the "treat" immensely. Maybe we can be friends because you have a sense of humor and from the looks of it a fan club. Happy Halloween!

Denae said...

Your hair cracked me up and the costume was great. And the 3 little Mr.Zs were adorable.

Thanks for the treat. It made us laugh quite a bit.

K.J. said...

Totally awesome!
You must be one cool teacher! Actually...I know you are!
Hope you had a Rockin Halloween!

♥Miya said...

Epic win!

tiburon said...

Nobody ever dresses up as me! But then again who wants to be an overweight, thirty-something, ultracool minivan driving, mother of four?!

You are a rockstar and how cool that those boys want to be you!

What a compliment :)

B - I was kind of expecting All-A-Boy (the one with glasses) to do this because he's dressed up as "Mr. Z" for the past four years or so. I was genuinely surprised by the other two...

N - we are quite 'z team,' if you know what I mean...

C - I actually think that they probably couldn't think of anything else and it was a last-minute desperation effort. ;)

J - Somebody's gotta do it.

M - My sentiments exactly.

R - I take what I can get.

You know, I used to go horseback riding as a kid all the time, but when you live out in the middle of nowhere, nobody cares if a horse does his business in the middle of the woods on a deer trail.

L - The club started off with one...we're slowly adding more members and are currently taking applications.

D - Everybody deserves a 'cyber' version of that treat. The real thing would be a bit too...well, you know.

KJ - Halloween was quite the experience. Only 364 more days until we get it again!

M - For the Z-Squad, or did you quelch the flaming bag of goodness?

T - Tell you what, I'll dress up as you next year, okay? Just gotta get me a minivan and another facial like Edward...

Kathy V said...

Little Mr. Z's. Aaah! How touching.

Gerb said...

The kid with the glasses is probably my favorite...

LOVE these pictures. So did All-a-Boy.

Teachinfourth said...

K - I had one in years past: http://teachinfourth.blogspot.com/2007/11/best-halloween-costume.html

It seems to be catching...

G - I figured as much; not that you're biased or anything. I'll get you these shots when I get you the others.

tammy said...

The highest form of flattery.
You should feel honored.

SO said...

I can totally see why those boys want to be you.

allison nadauld said...

That's really sweet. You have a way with kids.

Farscaper said...

It's the spiky hair club for men!

ps... thanks for the BOP!

Dallas and Kirsten said...

I'm not sure if the world can take any more spiky hair dos! Good to see things haven't changed too much back in P-town! Wish I could have been there to revolutionize the school with my costume!

Rachel said...

Normally we try to ride where we don't have to worry about the poo but ya. Riding here is nothing like riding where I grew up out in the boonies. Here there are PEOPLE....and people don't normally like stepping in flaming poo.....even on Halloween! :D

Teachinfourth said...

T - It is, and I am. I did a post on that awhile ago when a kid whom I called "Chase" did something similar.

S - There are days I wish somebody else were me...but then I get all the grades entered and life is good again.

A - It's good to hear from you again, Allison; I keep telling myself, "What would Allison do?" It works like magic every time.

FS - SOMEbody's gotta have that club...

K - I would love to have seen what costume you'd have pulled out of the bag this year.

R - True enough. Hey, I saw the costumes and eats at your last posting...kudos to you! Quite the impressive feat. I was really impressed with Matt's Jawa costume as well, I'm surprised he didn't wear it to school.

Rachel said...

LOL! Your super powers have faded with age. :) Jawa was very much at school that day. Look close at the photo....the background. :D

Teachinfourth said...

R - Temporary brain damage...I'd just returned from school when I made that last comment and read your blog. Now, after a good night's rest, I am fully recharged and ready for it all to happen again.

I don't know why I didn't notice him at school...

Maybe he was a stealth ninja Jawa.

Rachel said...

Probably because there were "a few" students dressed up and not looking their normal selves. It was a crazy day!

hintonrae said...

You're whacked. Love the flaming bag of poo. My chihuahua...she was a little disturbed by the "eee, eee, eee..." sound effects, but I managed to muzzle her long enough to stomp it out.

Jess T said...

Adorable! :)

Teachinfourth said...

R Yeah...he was being stealthy.

L - Wasn't it disturbingly awesome?

J - I was completely flattered.
