After dotting her i's and crossing her t's, Ohio University freshman Zoey Oxley was sure she handed in her best work on a paper for her music performance class.

Unfortunately, she realized after submitting her paper that she had gotten the professor's name completely wrong.

Not only did she get his name wrong, she managed to inadvertently ridicule her superior.


Instead of writing "Professor John Hendel," she wrote "Professor whats his nuts" in the paper's header.

Oops.

The mortified pupil went into damage control and wrote a letter of apology, this time by addressing her professor with the proper name.

"Professor Hendel, I am writing this letter very embarrassingly. As I began writing my paper, I wrote out the template," she wrote, explaining her kerfuffle.

"Unfortunately, I could not remember your last name, so I filled it with something completely unprofessional. It was my intention to change the name before submission, but it completely slipped my mind.
"I attempted to resubmit the assignment but was unable to. I am so very sorry for the lack of respect that was used and again I apologize for this mistake."
"I hope that this does not reflect what you think of me and that the next assignment I can address by the correct name. Thank you again and I am so sorry. Thank You, Zoey."

But Professor Hendel, who according to Indy 100 teaches how to playwright at an Ohio theater program, saw the snafu as a comedy of errors and decided to make light of situation with a tweet that went viral.

He even paid homage to the slipshod appellation by changing his Twitter handle.

Hendel told Business Insider about how funny he thought the situation was over a two-page essay for his introductory-level class.

"Her email to me was so apologetic and so specific. She knew exactly what had happened and how to fix it. I just thought the whole thing was really funny. I told her, 'I'm not holding it against you, I'm fine with it.' Because I think it's funny."
"The stakes are so low on this paper."

Others came forward with their own amusing anecdotes.









These exasperated students wrote long overtures practically begging for forgiveness only to get short assurances from their professors.



The class doesn't resume for another three weeks, but Hendel assures Oxley that all is fine.

"The fact that she [also tweeted about it] kind of told me, 'OK, we're both cool with this. We both think it's funny. Good.' I accepted her apology, no problem. I don't expect it to happen again."

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
