When I was in second grade, there was a kid who showed up for school on Halloween in an awesome homemade Rubik's Cube costume.

Awesome until he realized that he wouldn't be able to sit at his desk since he was completely encased from neck to knee in a cube. (How he got to school I have no idea; he must have been a "walker").

The teacher asked if he wanted to take it off, but he was so proud of his ingenuity and what was no doubt countless bonding hours spent between himself and his mom, he said "no".  

The teacher said he couldn't stand at his desk because then he would be blocking other students from seeing the blackboard.  So he was left with no choice but to stand in the corner of the classroom for the entire day.

Again, dressed as a Rubik's Cube.

This video of a sad little Gumby reminded me of that…
