FML - The follow-up

Today, I had to put up with a student who stubbornly insisted that King Solomon was, in fact, a Pokémon. FML

OP here. For those of you who are curious, I work at a public high school teaching English. The class of interest here was my Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition class (made up of SENIORS). The issue came up because a sample practice objective test I passed out had referenced some biblical stories and a couple of students had questions on it. He still thinks Solomon is in one of his Pokémon games.

@43 Slowbro doesn't evolve into Slowking. They're both possible evolutions of Slowpoke who evolves into Slowbro from leveling up, or evolves into Slowking when traded while holding a King's Rock.

Really? You can't find a better place than FML to brag about being an atheist? "Oooh this will REALLY piss off the Christians!" Your attempt at edginess just made you look like a pitiful attention whore. At least shout your belief systems from the rooftops using mediums wherein people actually give a shit about them.

I had to look this up since it sounded familiar from the old Saturday morning cartoons. There actually is a digimon named Salamon. It's pronounced more or less the same as King Solomon. It's possible OP mixed up Pokemon and Digimon. I dunno.

I agree its pretty fantastic. Although this kid clearly has no huge love for pokemon. I dont care that he didn't know who it was, I didn't. But thinking it was a pokemon! That's crazy
