Alien Anatomy and the Limits of Artistic Expression

A story passed along by a colleague with whom I share students:

This morning, one of my students got himself in trouble with some artwork created on the way to school. During his bus ride, he drew a picture of an alien, complete with penis and testicles. Predictably, another child tattled on him, and the young artist was called upon to explain his artwork. When asked by our school's behavior intervention specialist why he had drawn it that was, he replied, "because I don't know how to draw pants."
