Emergency Card Bloopers

  1. After starting the thread about the funny things that kids say, I subbed at a local school and was reminded that many of the best ones actually come from parents. Reviewing a student's emergency health card, I was somewhat alarmed to discover that the student had a "flammable stomach."

    I'm curious about the interesting things that have made it onto your emergency cards.
