Whilst taking the class through a reading of the Book of Genesis, your Religious Education teacher will turn to you and inquire: ‘Literally speaking, how do you read these first verses?’
You will answer him thus: ‘Literally speaking, I read them with my eyes, sir.’
He will then ask you this: ‘Are you being sarcastic?’
To which you will reply: ‘Only literally, sir.’
Later that day you will find yourself having to report to the headmaster for ‘gross insubordination’ and ‘disruption of the class’.
