Cheap Gray Paste

My son Noah was given an assignment today in his eighth grade Family & Consumer Science class. He tells the story:

We had to draw a stick figure and list next to it the qualities of the best employee. Instead of writing the qualities I was supposed to write, like ‘is hard-working, organized, works well with others’, stuff like that, I wrote down ‘subsists on cheap gray paste,’ ‘needs no sleep,’ ‘is perfectly content looking at a tiny screen forever.’ So then my teacher was like, ‘Ha ha, Noah, very funny, but please work with me here.’ So because I had to work with a group to put this together, I said ‘fine’ and wrote down ‘charming.’
