Does the Jean Grey School need a class pet?

I'm just thinking-- almost every school, no matter what level of learning, has a class pet. So, why not the Jean Grey? I started thinking about this after seeing my favorite Looney Tunes short, "Punch Trunk" (1953).

For some strange reason, I think it would be pretty funny if the Jean Grey School's class pet was, yes, a five-inch tall elephant. I'd chuckle if I saw a comic where every so often, a student or a faculty member takes a moment to feed said elephant a peanut. I'd even get a laugh if the elephant's name was Ringo! But what would probably make people laugh hard is who the elephant occasionally sprays in the face--and of course, Quintin Quire is the first target. Or better yet, the water almost hits Kitty Pryde, only for her to phase...while Wolverine or Quire walks by.

So yeah, let me just ask--what kind of a class pet would you imagine the Jean Grey School would have?

While you're pondering that question and thinking of a reply, enjoy the sounds of Henry Mancini....

I thought Toad was the class pet

@BaBaBoom: I mean an actual critter. Toad's the one picking up the guy's....you know. :) (Don't worry, it only requires a small trowel.)

Toad and Lockhead are pretty good.

I'm sorry, but 'Punch Trunk' sounds like a movie not suited for minors... ;p

It's one of the things that turns me off about WaX, for all the equality nonsense Wolverine spews he treats Toad like crap.

@TheCrowbar: Absolutely. You'd think with everything they've gone through and all the persecution and bullying they've suffered, they'd know better than to subject somebody else to it.

To be fair though, Toad did try to kill them a bunch of times. [So did Half of Extinction, but that Cyclops-side]

Great. I went from defending him to attacking him in no time falt.

Even then, the pink haired telepath gets a long leash than Toad does and he still pulls more crap than Toad.

Even that notwithstanding, I'd agree with your opinion.

But that, is just because Aaron needs it that way for his plot.

I'll be fair, might have been more like nearly two hours, now that I look at the clock. Still, you trying waking up from no sleep and typing properly.

@Mercy_: @ReVamp: Can you two stop making yourselves the CENTER of ATTENTION!

How about some pet ideas OTHER than Toad, Lockheed, Broo?

The same goes for you too, .

@Darkmount1:

The rage is strong in this one.

@TheCrowbar: Sorry. I just hate it when my blog topic is derailed and I have to try and get it back on.

Posted by Mercy_

@Darkmount1: My apologies :)

@Mercy_: It's okay.

So, to the point--I went with a 5" tall elephant, what kind of critter do you picture for the Jean Grey?

Posted by htb106

I think they should get some Goldfish.

Posted by Darkmount1

@htb106: Why goldfish?

Posted by BaBaBoom

I think we all agree that Toad is definitely the class pet.

Posted by Darkmount1

@BaBaBoom: Then count me out of that corner of the ring.

Posted by Mr Marvel82

The should get a phoenix. There's got to be one in Asgard they could borrow.

Posted by Darkmount1

@Mr Marvel82: Probably would bring up too many bad memories. As for a bird though, why not a parrot?
