Dwayne Johnson Salutes Fifth-Grader Who Compares ‘The’ Rock With ‘A’ Rock

The Rock calls the young fan, ”Way smarter than I was, as my only mission back then was flirting w/ girls with my buck teeth“

Names can be deceiving, as evidenced by a fifth-grade science student who compared “a rock” to “The Rock.”

“One of the fifth-graders I work with made this in his science class. It wasn’t even for a grade,” Reddit user Marley_S said of a chart one her students made. The poster, complete with photos of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson from his WWE days and a photo of a giant, you guessed it, rock, are separate by an equal sign.

Johnson got a kick out of it, tweeting: “Very cool and creative 5th grader who will become a future science leader. Unlike myself in 5th grade who got suspended for using [middle finger emoji] in class.”

The student did find similarities between Johnson and “a rock,” like super strength, indestructibility and a shiny dome (aka bald head). But the biggest difference between them is a pretty big one:

The Rock: biotic (Living)
A rock: abiotic (non-living)

Johnson later wrote, “Brilliant 5th grader. Way smarter than I was, as my only mission back then was flirting w/ girls with my buck teeth.”
