Military Music

The Marines Birthday reminded me of a 7th grade general music class about 15 years ago.

We were finishing a unit on music of the armed forces.  We sang the Marines Hymn, etc...  I was giving a test:

What are the branches of the United States Military?

Student answer: roots, leaves, trunk, branches, stem.

I thought OK, thats interesting.

Then I got to the next paper.  Which had the exact same answer.
