I Got A Poor Grade, Nobody Loves Me

| WA, USA | Musical Mayhem

(We are in our science class when Teacher starts talking about Galileo thermometers.)

Me: “Galileo!”

Teacher: “Galileo!”

Me: “Galileo! Figaro!”

Me & Teacher: “Magnificoooooo!”

(We proceeded to sing a good chunk of Bohemian Rhapsody before he decided to continue the lesson. Science may not be my best subject, but d*** if he wasn’t one of the best teachers I ever had.)


Missed The First Day Of Class AND Christmas

| IL, USA | Musical Mayhem, Punny

(It is English class. We have a sub and have strayed off of topic.)

Student #1: “What is the house that a preacher lives in called?”

Student #2: “A parsonage, I think.”

(The next day our teacher asks us what we talked about with the substitute teacher. Student #3 had been absent the day before.)

Teacher: “What did you guys do the other day?”

Student #1: “We talked about parsonages!”

Student #3: “Isn’t that a song?”

(Cue blank stares.)

Student #3: “You know, ‘A parsonage in a pear tree!’”


Play That Sexy Brass

USA | Musical Mayhem, Rude & Risque

(While in concert band, our director is addressing issues in one of our songs. I play trumpet.)

Director: “Trumpets, you stand out too much. I need you to blend in with the French horns…”

(He continues telling other sections what they need to improve, and reminds us all what needs to be addressed right before we play.)

Director: “Remember, trumpets, be more horny.”


Maybe They Weren’t Born In The USA

| Northboro, MA, USA | Musical Mayhem

(Because I only need three history classes to graduate, I skip history my junior year and take a junior class my senior year. One day the teacher comes in holding a CD.)

Teacher: “All right! We’re listening to The Boss today!”

Me: “Oh, man! Yes!”

Classmate: *after nobody else says anything* “Uhm… The Boss?”

Me: “Wait… you don’t know? Bruce Springsteen!”

(A few of my classmates nod at this, but most of them still seem confused.)

Me: “You don’t know Bruce Springsteen?!”

Classmate: “I guess it’s a generation thing…”

Me: “I’m ONE year older than you!”


Copying It To The Letter

| USA | Musical Mayhem

(I’m a teacher and will often joke with my students in class. It’s the beginning of class and I go to answer a knock at my door while I am giving instructions to my students.)

Me: “Okay, guys, go ahead and jump onto the computers and into our program. Well, not literally into the computers, like Steve jumps into pictures on Blue’s Clues.”

(A few of the students respond and giggle as I open the door to a student dropping off a document. I turn around to walk it back to my desk and a student sees that it’s in an envelope.)

Student: *singing, just like the Blue’s Clues song* “We just got a letter!”

Me: *joining in* “We just got a letter!”

Rest Of Class: “We just got a letter! Wonder who it’s from?”
