    Same Name, Different Junk

    | CA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Rude & Risque, Teachers

    (I have a psychology teacher who is really intense during lectures in a hilarious way. He is known for giving out nicknames and using them for the eternity of the school year. We are playing a class jeopardy game where the student who answers the question correctly chooses to pick the person to choose the next question. I am male. There are two other females in my class with my name.)

    Student: “I choose, Female [My Name].”

    Teacher: “Female [My Name]? Do you mean [My Name] C.?”


    Different Student: “I choose, Male [My Name].”

    Teacher: “Yes, the male one. The [My Name] with testicles. Hey! That’s a good nickname. You are now [My Name] with testicles, or [My Name] T for short.”

    (The female student with my name laughs much louder than the rest.)

    Teacher: *calling on same female student* “Okay, now you can answer a question, [My Name] V.”

    Stopped The Lesson From Falling Flat

    | Ukiah, CA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Math & Science, Teachers

    (I am in my high school physics class. The teacher is lecturing on light and sound waves while I’m leaning my chair back. I accidentally tip too far and my chair falls backward.)

    Teacher: “Let’s jump forward a few chapters; that’s gravity. Now back to waves.”

    Talking Turkey About Politics

    | KY, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Language & Words, Politics, Teachers

    (This occurs during a discussion of Turkey’s government in social studies class.)

    Teacher: “Now, their government is a bit like the French government in which they have a parliament with both a president and a prime minister…”

    Principal: “Excuse me, Mrs. [Teacher]? Can I talk to you for a moment?”

    (My teacher and the principal go out into the hall to have a short discussion.)

    Teacher: *coming back into the room* “Now, where was I? Oh yes, now they have a turkey and a prime minister…” *the whole class starts laughing* “What did I just say?”

    Friend: “That’s going on the quote list!”

    Holding Open Death’s Door For Chivalry

    | Australia | Bizarre/Silly, Students, Teachers

    (My brother spots his teacher as he’s about to enter the lecture theatre, and pauses to hold the door open for her.)

    Teacher: “Ah, chivalry is not dead!”

    Brother: *not missing a beat* “Yes, it is, Miss. And it was women who killed it.”

    Inigo Montoya’s Schooldays

    | MD, USA | Geeks Rule, Movies & TV, Teachers

    (Our professor is assigning lab partners on the first day of class.)

    Professor: “Now, if these assignments seem random, that’s because they are. I rolled a d20.”

    (He reads off the list, then adds…)

    Professor: “By the way, these are not set in stone. If you just broke up, or if your lab partner killed your father and needs to prepare to die, talk to me after class and I’ll change it.”
