A vignette

In my 1st Year class last period my 75-year-old teacher was teaching the kids how to talk about the weather.

Mr Katoda: 「場所に天気はどうですか。」は:What is the weather like in (basho)?
Kids: What is the weather like in (basho)?
Mr. Katoda: What is the weather like in Tokyo?
Kids: What is the weather like in Tokyo?
Mr. Katoda: What is the weather like in London?
Kids: What is the weather like in London?

They are starting to figure it out. Kids start yelling out answers individually making a huge racket.

Kids: What is the weather like in (various different places)?
One kid: What is the weather like in Kanagi?
Another kid: What is the weather like in Katoda's head?
Mr. Katoda: まずいだよ。(It's unpleasant, that's what it is...)
