When "my dog ate my homework" doesn't work on the teacher anymore

I've got many titles for this animation.

Whatever, man, watch it! Share it! Or...something.
I don't care.

Easy alternative if you lived in some part of my city: The fire ate my homework

Lol but why is this accurate

There was a fire recently in a town next to mine

A house next door caught fire and was just restored, an athletics building caught fire, etc., etc. It’s crazy everywhere.
