I imagine if you’re a parent that a letter from your kid’s school is about as pleasant as an unexpected bill so it must come as sweet relief when it’s about something hilarious rather than angry.
Enter Paul Hunt, who yesterday afternoon received an email about his ten-year-old son’s behaviour on the playground, Mashable reports.
Thankfully his little boy wasn’t pulling pigtails or stealing conkers he was in fact playing make believe, specifically he was pretending to be a character called ”Wildo the Dildo’.
This letter, that was sent home from school today, is the funniest thing I've ever read. pic.twitter.com/5UYItrfVmO

Yep you read that right.
The school quickly confirmed that the kid had no idea what a dildo was or that it was a rude word, apparently he’d overheard it on the playground, but you can understand why the school were a bit concerned.
People online however loved it…

Let’s be honest there are worse thing your kid’s school could write to you about!
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
