How do you say ‘well played’ in Groot?
When Jeff Davis, a teacher at Wichita Falls Independent School District in Texas, asked his students to write a resume and cover letter that embodies a Marvel character of their choosing, he expected them to choose Iron Man or Captain America. You know, characters who can speak English.
But one clever teen decided to pick the one character who doesn’t: Groot.
The student’s paper shows everything written in the tree-alien’s language, from the name to the copy. Of course, ‘I Am Groot’ could mean anything, so this piece could be gibberish or the greatest resume and cover letter ever.
Luckily for the teen, Davis has a good sense of humour, and gave him high marks.
“The idea that you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take lives within one particular student of mine,” he said.
“The student received a 95 and 100 on two separate grades. He had points taken off for capitalization and inconsistency on his name ‘Groot’ he left out ‘I am’. Grammar is very important.”
