SQOTD- “Beowulf. That a real wolf though?”

On our second day of class I was discussing Anglo-Saxon literature.  I try to impress upon them the dog-eat-dog mentality of the Anglo-Saxon world, and how violent it was.
“People died young, and often violently.  We are even going to be reading about a terrifying monster in Beowulf.”
Student quote of the day:

“Beowulf.  That a real wolf though?”

In fairness, I can 100% see how he got to that.
