    Professors Can Come In All Flavors

    | USA | Bizarre/Silly, Musical Mayhem, Teachers

    (My college has just recently built a new lab school, which houses a play-based daycare. It also has classrooms for the college students, an office for the head of the department, and a large common area. A classmate and I are in the common area, working together on our final projects. From the common area, we can see one of our professors and the head of the department in her office, in a heated discussion. After a few minutes, our professor comes out and stands in front of us.)

    Professor: “Girls, I’m glad you’re here. I have a question to ask.”

    Us: “Okay?”

    Professor: “Who’s that rap artist with the big clock around his neck?”

    Me: “You mean Flavor Flav?”

    Professor: “I knew it. I was right. Thanks!”

    (She goes back into the office and closes the door. My classmate and I just look at each other.)

    Classmate: “Did she seriously just…?”

    Me: “I have no idea what that was about.”

    (Both professors then exited the office and offered us chocolate. We decided not to question it too much!)

    Foyer And Away

    | MI, USA | Bad Behavior, Musical Mayhem, Teachers

    (Our band director, while possessing a sense of humor, tends to be rather strict in her teaching style. As a result, a few students develop a rebellious sort of attitude with her. One has been making rather rude comments to her section for the past few minutes.)

    Director: “[Student #1], I’ve had it with your comments. If you think all of this is beneath you, then go stand in the foyer until we’re done.”

    (Student #1 actually does go stand in the little area in the entrance to the band room. The class proceeds normally, until the director tries to talk and is constantly interrupted by another student making noises with his trumpet.)

    Director: “[STUDENT #2]!”

    Student #2: *panicking* “I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m REALLY sorry! PLEASE DON’T SEND ME TO THE FOYER!”

    (The class is dead silent for about three seconds, and then everyone bursts out laughing. The class ends, and as I go up to the director to return some music…)

    Director: *muttering in a high-pitched voice* “Please don’t send me to the foyer!”

    More Wordplay

    | MO, USA | Awesome, Language & Words, Musical Mayhem, Students, Top

    (We are in a sociology class, during a review for an upcoming test. The teacher is quizzing us on the vocabulary term ‘more’ (pronounced mor-ay) which means a set of social customs and morals.)

    Teacher: “Does anybody know what a ‘more’ is?”

    (I couldn’t resist…)

    Me: “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, THAT’S a more!”

    Teacher: *laughs loudly*

    Students: *groan*

    Me: *grinning like an idiot*

    (And that was the best moment of my high school education.)

    In Five Years Time, Life Goes On

    | Chicago, IL, USA | Extra Stupid, History, Musical Mayhem, Religion, Students

    (I overhear a snippet of two students’ conversation as they walk past.)

    Student #1: “Yeah, dolphins can be pretty sick. Didn’t that dude Noah from that one story get, like, eaten by a dolphin or something?”

    Student #2: “I think it was a whale. That’s why it’s called Noah and the Whale.”

    Get Educated Or Die Tryin’

    | Flemington, NJ, USA | Musical Mayhem, Teachers

    (We are learning about Rasputin in my AP European history class. My teacher is notorious for clever, but corny jokes.)

    Teacher: “Yeah, so, Rasputin was shot nine times and didn’t die.”

    Class: “Really?”

    Teacher: “Nah. That was ’50 Cent.’”
