    Will Be Crabby All Day About It

    | Canada | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Students

    (It is break time at my school. I have stayed in a classroom to read a book because it’s quiet. Suddenly, my friend walks in with a very proud look on his face.)

    Friend: “Hey, bet you didn’t know that crabs aren’t fish.”

    (He has said things like this before, so I just assume he’s joking.)

    Me: “Really? What are they?”

    Friend: “They’re carnations.”

    (I realize he is saying this in all seriousness.)

    Me: “Crustaceans…”

    (He ponders this.)

    Friend: “Shut up!”

    Me: “And to think, you made it this far in school.”

    Should Not Be A Mother By Certain Calculations

    | NY, USA | Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Parents

    (I’m on the phone with the mother of an applicant’s to our competitive extracurricular academic program.)

    Me: “Students are not allowed to use calculators on the entry exam.”

    Mother: “But how are the kids supposed to do math without a calculator?”

    Their Minds Were Clear Before He Even Started

    | Philadelphia, PA, USA | Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Students

    (I am on a field trip with my class to see a stage hypnotist. He has called up some classmates to the stage and “hypnotized” them.)

    Hypnotist: “And now… I turn down the gravity!”

    (Everyone on stage immediately drops to the ground and pretends to struggle standing up.)

    Hypnotist: “I said turn DOWN the gravity!”

    God Knows What She Thinks Of The Dark Ages

    | WA, USA | Extra Stupid, History, Students

    (We are doing an assignment on the bubonic plague. The girl next to me looks extremely confused.)

    Girl: “What is considered middle-aged?”

    Teacher: “Why?”

    Girl: “Is it like, forty?”

    Teacher: “Why?”

    Girl: “It says that the bubonic plague had the most effect on people during the ‘Middle Ages.'”

    Someone Has The Balls To Say It

    | MN, USA | Extra Stupid, Health & Body, Students

    (I am in psychology class at a community college.)

    Professor: “What’s the one substance that will make you act stupider than any other substance on earth?”

    Male Student: “Testosterone.”

    Professor: “Well… yes, but I was talking about alcohol.”
