WERE YOU EXPECTING the first big scandal of the Leaving Cert to be over English Paper II? You were wrong.

The Home Economics exam seems to pass by every year unremarked upon. Today, however, Home Ec students’ world was rocked by the unexpected appearance of eggs on the paper.

Why unexpected? Well, there has never been a question on the nutritional properties of eggs in the history of Home Ec as a Leaving Cert subject. And students weren’t prepared for it to come up now.

And that’s why they are now roundly trashing seemingly innocent eggs on Twitter.

“Eggs ya bollox.”

“Actual twitching.”

On the other hand, however, there are these smug so-and-sos who were only delighted about the eggs. There are always these smug so-and-sos.

If this is anything to go by, we better batten down the hatches ahead of English Paper II. Godspeed, all.

Every Leaving Cert has the same prayer about tomorrow’s English Paper II>
