It started off so well, with genuine remorse and an "I love you." Then, suddenly, "I was trying to hit Chris. I hate Chris." Kids, right? Always punching each other over...wait a minute "throo the sizzors"?! Aside from the fact that he spells scissors like he's auditioning to become a mid-2000s rapper...whoah! That's easily in the top 5 classroom and/or playroom no-nos as a kid. Why would he do such a thing? Well, as you can see, his hatred for Chris quite literally outweighs his love for Ben.
This is still more honest than a politician's "I'm sorry if anyone was offended" non-apology, but you have to be wowed at the audacity of this kid for sticking to his scissors in this argument. Fortunately, for all those concerned, the boys' mom showed up on Facebook to assure us that it's all OK:
I would like to see an updated diagram about his feelings for Ben and Chris.
