Diet of Worms?! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

So I'm helping my kid with his homework and there's a question about the "Diet of Worms." I give him all kinds of information about that general assembly of the estates of the Holy Roman Emperor that took place in Worms, a small town on the Rhine river located in what is now Germany, in 1521. All the time he's rolling his eyes and I'm wondering what I can do to make history come alive for him. And then--well, it turns out what his teacher wanted was a report on what they had for dinner last night.
