    Category: Students

    Collegiate Logic

    | USA | Students, Teachers

    Professor: “Can you imagine signing away the next 4-8 years of your life and hoping you get something good out of it?”

    Student: “Isn’t that what we do in college?”

    Made A Naboo-boo

    | USA | Bizarre/Silly, Movies & TV, Students

    (I’m attending a lecture by one of my favorite teachers, in an exceedingly cold auditorium. Sitting near the front, I can see what he cannot: a man in a rubber Jar-Jar Binks mask, lurking at the back of the stage. He goes on with the lecture, unaware, while everyone else is whispering and pointing.)

    Teacher: “All right, guys, what’s up?”

    Jar-Jar Guy: “Uh… Ex-squeeze me!”

    (He dashes past the teacher and out the door.)

    Teacher: “Um… What?!”

    (Luckily, he’s really laid back. The only time a prank made him mad was when a bunch of students staged a light-saber battle on stage and it took up half the class.)

    Education Has Gone Way Down South

    | CA, USA | Extra Stupid, Geography, Students

    (Our school has a new weekly event where we discuss one country a week.)

    Leader: “Today we are going to discuss South Africa!”

    Classmate: “That’s a continent, not a country!”

    Me: “Um, South Africa is a country…”

    Classmate: “Really? …I wish they still taught geography in school.”

    Making A Complete Boob Of Yourself

    | Pico Rivera, CA, USA | Bad Behavior, Rude & Risque, Students

    (In my 10th grade world history class we are learning about art from a Power-Point and one slide has a revolutionary picture with a woman on it showing liberty.)

    Male Student: “Is that a boob?”

    Teacher: “What, is this your first time seeing one?”

    Class: “Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!”

    Knows The Right Stuff(ing)

    | England, UK | Bizarre/Silly, Students

    (We’re currently studying ‘The Landlady’ in English class. It’s heavily implied in the story that she has killed and stuffed her previous tenants and she’s just poisoned the narrator, who’s her latest tenant. I read a lot so I know a lot of random trivia that my class doesn’t.)

    Teacher: “Right, so does anyone know what happens at the end of the story?”

    Me: “She’s just poisoned the narrator by spiking his tea.”

    Teacher: “Very good! How did you know that?!”

    Me: “Well, he says his tea has a faint taste of almonds, and that’s an indicator of cyanide.”

    (Everyone looks round at me, wondering how I knew that.)

    Me: *accidentally sounding suspicious* “…Uh, I read it somewhere. I think.”


    Teacher: “Right, now we know she likes to taxidermy her pets, so what’s going to happen to the narrator?”

    (I put my hand up again, and she tries some other students before asking me.)

    Me: “She stuffs him, right? Taxidermy is stuffing things, so that’s how she keeps her victims.”

    Teacher: “Okay, it seems [My Name] has a worrying knowledge of these things, so, everyone, don’t trust her okay? She’s the landlady!”

    (Everyone laughed, and I was known as the landlady for quite a while in that class.)
