Hint: one of them is not edible.

I can’t believe summer is basically over! It feels like vacation just started, and yet here we are at back-to-school time once again. Many colleges are in session this week, and in parts of the country primary school students are in class as well. Though nobody likes going back to school – not even teachers – BuzzFeed tried to give Internet denizens some perspective with their post 27 Things That Are Worse Than Going Back to School.
