Things Overheard in the Hallway

One sophomore said to another, "You're like a shrimp . . . you're a shellfish" and this was such a strange phrase that I couldn't ignore it, and so I asked the sophomore why he said it, but the reason he gave for making this odd simile was far less interesting than the phrase itself . . . so I won't ruin it and tell you his explanation.

This is the generation that grew up on Spongebob. Maybe they relate to things that live under the sea more than you can imagine.

My guess is that it had something to do with Selfish not Shellfish. Am i right?
