Gone Way Past The Border Of Stupidity

| Winnipeg, MT, Canada | Extra Stupid, Geography

(I’m in ninth grade English class and we’re working on group projects about the Canadian governmental parties. My group of three has gone so far off topic that we’ve landed on citizenship and what happens if a baby is born on a plane flying over a foreign country.)

Group Member #1: “I was born on the border of Mongolia and Africa, but I’m Canadian. Explain that.”

Group Member #2: “What did you just say?”

Group Member #1: “What?”

Me: “Are you sure about that, [Group Member #1]. Are you sure?”

Group Member #2: *points at the map at the wall* “So you were born in Afghanistan?”

Group Member #1: “Uhm. I, uh, was kidding?”

(He hasn’t lived this down. It’s become a running joke in our class about him being from the Mongolia-Africa border.)

Talking Out Of Their As-thma

| Extra Stupid, Health & Body, Teachers

(We’re in gym class and we’re told that we’ll be running laps for the day. My friend has acute asthma and doesn’t want it to start an attack.)

Friend: “Excuse me, but since I have asthma can I sit this one out or just walk the laps?”

Teacher: “Don’t you have your inhaler?”

Friend: “Yes, but I don’t want to use it if I can avoid it.”

Teacher: “Can’t you just use your inhaler now to prevent an attack?”

(She was also our health teacher.)

She’s A Royal Idiot

| PA, USA | Extra Stupid, History, Students

(It’s January and we are in American History. Our teacher just finished talking about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the start of the American Civil Rights movement in the 1950s.)

Student: “I know he did a lot of good things for black people, but why did they have to call him a king?”
