Teachers Break Down How The Class Clown Actually Got Them To Laugh

If you haven't spent a lot of time around kids, it can be easy to forget they're entire tiny people - often with big personalities. Combine that with the fact that they generally have almost no filter and let's be honest, some of them are downright hilarious.


Reddit user Happyclapclapclap asked:

Teachers of Reddit, what was something that the class clown did that genuinely made you laugh?

... and that's how you all ended up with an article that talks about how Hitler is a dolphin, Patrick Warburton teaches about fungi, and "nom-fiction."

Oh, and a perfectly timed death threat. Timing is everything, people.

Voice Acting

This is high school biology. A guy who was known for being a pretty good voice actor was reading a page on the properties of fungi in multiple impressions, making everyone laugh. He often got picked to read after that, and never disappointed. We've had:

Yogi bear, Irish guy, Disney princess, Shaggy, Scottish guy, Patrick Warburton, and many more.

Before he graduated, his voice was also recorded for phone messages informing of school events, schools voicemail, and MC for many school events.

Birds and Bees

Giphy

While teaching sexual reproduction to year 8, one student loudly announced "I don't get why they call it the birds and the bees. Trains and tunnels makes way more sense" I remember it ever single time I teach that unit, and it still makes me giggle.

I Like

On my first class, I asked my students to introduce themselves saying their names, their hometown and something they liked. Most of them were guys and they liked music, sports, videogames and such. After four guys introduced themselves, the fifth guy said "Hi, I'm Peter, I'm from X place and unlike the other guys, I like girls"

and we all laughed way too loud.

Juice

A kid asked if he could have a drink coz he had a cough, then proceeded to pull out a 6 pint bottle of apple juice.

A Dolphin Dictator

Did a presentation about conspiracy theories. It was assessed and had to be recorded. He started off so normal, until he got to the Da Vinci code, and started talking about the possibilities of Jesus and Mary having sex.

I lost it, but held it together, for the recording.

Then asked him to elaborate on other theories he had heard, he calmly said 'Well, there was this one that said that Hitler was a dolphin' and I had to escort myself out.

Won't Fail

While walking around the classroom, I tripped on a boy's backpack and almost faceplanted on the floor. A girl asked me if I were okay, to which I replied "no, X almost killed me."

He turned to me and, without missing a beat, replied "I won't fail next time!"

We still laugh about it about every two weeks. Definitely my favourite in that group.

Nom-Fiction

Giphy

Not necessarily the class clown, but I once had one of my first graders look me square in the eye and ask me, "why don't they call cookbooks 'nom-fiction'?" It's stuck with me for about 5 years now!

The Announcer

I'm a teacher's assistant. There was this goofy boy (who I'll call A) in my math class that would announce students as they walked into class. He wasn't mean or anything. He'd just either just say your name like the Price is Right announcer or something silly about you like "Ladies & Gentleman, you may know him as Chris but we all call him That Guy who referred to grey as 'dark white!'"

Usually nothing bad, so we let him do it.

But one time during class this girl walks in and she was pretty small. She kinda looked like she might be a little person but insisted that she wasn't. Anyway, A starts hushing the class and says "Guys, guys we are in the presence of a celebrity." And we all start looking around and then he says "Welcome, everyone, the Midget from Hell Date!!"

I laughed so hard I got sent to the nurses office to use my inhaler.

No Phones In Class

I was teaching in China (a private school where parents or the child carers would attend also) and this one child would not listen to me or anybody else - he was totally free and involved in his own wild world. His father accompanied him but would go into the very back of the room to talk on his cell phone.

I had warned the parent to put down or shut off the phone and pay attention to his son. He didn't listen either. I eventually took the phone from the father. His son yelled (in English!) to his father, "you in trouuuuble" and he laughed and laughed - such a contagious giggle! I guess the kid was paying attention.

A For Effort

A kindergartner called me over and was very proud of what they just colored. The girl sitting next to him looked at it, then looked at him and said "well at least you're trying your best."

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.

"People who knowingly have slept with someone who was in a relationship, why did you do it?"
