A girl has gone viral after she decided to hide cheese in an old lip balm stick so she could eat it in class.

School’s a funny old place, isn’t it?

They go on about how they prepare you for a professional life, but they still follow rules that are seldom implemented by modern businesses.

More and more, companies are going for casual dress codes (making uniforms pointless), you don’t need to maintain utter silence and for the most part, I eat at my desk pretty regularly.

I guess now’s not the time to delve into the antiquated school system, but rather commend a young girl who managed to find a loophole.

Eating in class is a big no-no, for some reason, and sometimes it’s hard for people who are literally growing to keep their energy up with only three meals a day with no snacks.

With that, children often sneak food into class but, because they kids, rarely get away with it. That was until this enterprising nine-year-old found a way…

Valerie Schremp Hahn, a reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, shared the story to Twitter, with the unnamed girl being her daughter. Of course it went viral, and people are more than impressed with the fourth-grader’s ingenuity.

Valerie later posted an update on the situation, writing: “I picked her up from school. Her teacher saw my note and thought it was hilarious but did not detect the 2 (!) cheese tubes she snuck bites/licks of during standardized test breaks. Also, she loves the positive tweets, especially ones saying ‘the future is female.’ [sic]”

The young girl spoke to Buzzfeed News, saying:

I was just looking on YouTube because I was bored and I found this video and I decided to do it. I just took some of my dad’s cheese, sliced it up, and put it in the chapstick container.

I just found that, cleaned it out with some soap, and started filling it with cheese.

You can lick it and no-one will know.”

She went on to say that she initially kept the cheese a secret from her friends…

At first I didn’t tell them and I was like licking the, quote, ‘cheese,’ and then I told them it was cheese and they just started laughing so hard.”

This girl is going to go far.
