    Not A Class Act

    | IL, USA | Extra Stupid, Students

    (Our voice and speech class will be collaborating with a directing class that meets at roughly the same time.)

    Teacher: “Their class starts at 2:20 and our class starts at 2:30, so show up to [location] at 2:30.”

    Student #1: “Uh, I have a class then.”

    (We all stare at her.)

    Student #2: “You have this class.”

    Student #1: “Oh, right.”

    Juan Born Every Minute

    | Columbus, OH, USA | Extra Stupid, Language & Words, Students

    (My students are translating a skit that uses ‘Juan Pablo’ (the Spanish equivalent of ‘John Doe’) as a character. Just for fun, I ask:)

    Me: “Can anyone tell me the fake name the police give an unidentified person? Like on CSI?”

    Overenthusiastic Student: “John Doe!”

    Me: “Good! Now, for bonus points, can anyone take a guess what they call an unidentified person in Spanish?”

    (The same student’s hand shoots up so fast, he almost falls out of his seat. I think he’s put two and two together.)

    Overenthusiastic Student: “Jesús Cristo!”

    Wasn’t Attracted To The Subject

    | Reading, England, UK | Exams/Tests, Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Students

    (At a revision lecture for one of the hardest modules in my engineering degree, a student who didn’t attend a single lecture walks in.)

    Lecturer: “Can I help you?”

    Student: “No, I’m fine.” *sits down*

    Lecturer: “This is ‘electromagnetism and its applications.’”

    Student: “Yeah, I know.”

    Me: “Good luck, mate…”

    Student: “I read the lecture note on day one. This s*** is easy.”

    (The next week he sat down for the exam, wrote his name, stared blankly at the question paper for 10 minutes, and then left without writing anything.)

    Be Careful When Picking Your Fraternity Denominations

    | CA, USA | Dorms, Extra Stupid, Religion, Students

    (I’m standing in the hallway, waiting for class.)

    Student #1: “Can a person be a moral Christian in a fraternity?”

    Student #2: “I’m a Catholic, not a Christian…”

    A New Dimension Of Stupidity, Part 6

    | Norway | Extra Stupid, Students

    (We’re out jogging in the woods for PE class when a guy bikes past.)

    Classmate #1: “Hey, it looked like that guy was wearing 3D-glasses!”

    Classmate #2: “Wow, that would be weird, seeing the woods in 3D. Hey, what if we could see the woods in 3D?”

    Classmate #1: “Yeah, that’d be cool.”

    Me: “Um, you guys are aware that you already are, right?”

    Classmate #2: “Okay, now I feel stupid.”
