Overheard on the front lines 2

Where's the innocence? Where's the wonder?

::As I was passing out test papers::

Boy Wonder 1: (whispers to his friend) Man, this is going to be hard.

Boy Wonder 2: (whispers back) That's what she said.

::Me - ><::

I no longer wonder HOW 8th graders know these kinds of jokes - I consume too much of the internet to be naive enough to wonder that anymore. But it doesn't seem like they should be developmentally able to UNDERSTAND these jokes. That's what makes me wonder.
