This tale of a comically large pencil and a teachable moment is funny

Over-sized objects such as giant stationery items are almost always funny, but this story shows they can provide valuable lessons also.

Twitter user @oscarewilde was behind the tale, which involved a rather random gift followed by a meticulous plan.

This is what Twitter threads were made for…

So the next time you forget to bring your pencil case to the classroom or lecture, think twice before asking someone for a writing implement. They might have seen you coming.
