SIGNS YOUR TEACHER IS A MAD SCIENTIST
Instead of dissecting a frog, your teacher insists you bring it back to life using a couple of electrodes and a dusty old device called “The Thingy.”
The short janitor, who happens to always assist your teacher, seems to be concealing a hunch.
Your teacher insists on students bringing in a brain to keep “for rainy days.”
Some of your classmates begin to disappear. Your teacher says “they’re being educated now by their families,” but won’t let you inside the storeroom.
The new student, Frank N. Stein, looks suspiciously like six of your missing classmates.
Your teacher mumbles something dangerously close to “Fools! I’ll destroy them all!”
When alone, your teacher spontaneously explodes into maniacal laughter.
