After flicking through my Sci-Fi Mag (You know the one- It comes out Geekly) I noticed that there were some new action figures for sale. Now before all you lads get wet with excitement or all you gals get bored and start plaiting the rainbow hair of your My Little Ponies, these weren't typical action figures. They werent Star Wars dolls or Star Trek or even Doctor Who... no! the latest action figures to hit the market are .... the official Chitty Chitty Bang Bang models. You too can have hours of fun tinkering with Professor Potts Senior and his flying shed, or have a some intimate time with a toymaker in your closet. If thats not bad enough, they didnt even have the car! Fancy making Chitty Models of all the characters and not even make the car! Thats just Shitty Shitty!

Well TV certainly is Edutainment. Watching the Richard Hammond Show I have now learnt that Yoghurt makes a good Face pack, Jelly make a good replacement for Hair Gel (And possibly a mid morning snack) and Peanut butter makes good Shaving cream
Also, Toothpaste is quite effective in cleaning Silverware, but beware, the reverse is not true. It is NOT a good idea to clean your teeth with Cillit Bang, even if Barry Scott tells you too! Remrember Barry Scott is not a dentist, he doesnt even work for Cillit Bang... in fact he doesn't exist
Watching the news tonight they are showing an item where a 7 year old was given homework to write a pasionate dating advert. I wonder if the Teacher was too lazy to write their own!
SO this leads me to my blog question. I have a friend who has kids at primary school. The homework set them is too hard for the kids so the parents do it for them. This happens for all the kids in the class. Apparently Matey has phone conversations with other parents regularly to discuss how to do their kids work. And the school continues to set it because it looks good "Our kids get high level work" and the parents like it "Hey look at the level of work our kids do" and the kids don't seem to mind it 'cos they dont have to do any work at home.
So my question. Do any parents out there do their kids homework for them?
