Kid's Incorrect Answer to Alphabet Riddle

This Kid's Answer to an Alphabet Riddle Is So Profound, We Don't Have the Heart to Correct Him

If we could be a fly on the wall, we'd strongly consider setting up shop in teacher Bret Turner's classroom the day he wrote a thought-provoking alphabet riddle on the white board.

"The first guess from one of my first-graders was 'death' and such an awed, somber, reflective hush fell over the class that I didn't want to tell them that actually the answer is the letter 'e', which just seemed so banal in the moment," Turner wrote on Twitter.

Um, whoa.

"Before I finally revealed the 'correct' answer to the riddle, to a largely unimpressed audience, I fielded other guesses that continued along a similarly existential vein. There was 'NOT everything,' 'all stuff,' 'the end,' and maybe my favorite, 'nothingthing.'"

To Mr. Turner's contemplative class, we give you an E for effort . . . or, at least, for existentialism.
