Being a teacher doesn't come with a lot of perks. The pay isn't great, the hours are never-ending, and there isn't a whole lot of respect from your administration a lot of the times. On the plus side, sometimes your students will do hilarious things you can share on the internet. So, there's that.
Reddit user, u/Xshadowwolf34X, wanted to hear the best of the worst when they asked:
Just Say It Out Loud
I teach a bunch of psychology subjects at a university in Australia.
Had 2 students present a 30 minute speech on 'Ass Burgers Syndrome'
...they were in 3rd year.
Focusing On The Wrong Key Details
Taught physics to GCSE students (age ~14 ) the question began with "Explain whether or not this circuit will.....".
This student had obviously been told to highlight key words from the question and so had just highlighted the word "whether" and then wrote an answer describing that days weather and her predictions for tomorrows weather.
Old English Is Hard
In 8th grade, we were reading a section of Romeo and Juliet aloud in class. The drama was ratcheting higher, we were pouring good acting and great enthusiasm into the parts, when the Nurse discovers Juliet "dead" and wails in shock and horror:
"O lemon table day!"
So much for tragedy. The whole class cracked up.
Kind Of The Same Thing
A common mistake is Old Timer's instead of Alzheimers.
I honestly prefer the former
Some Say He Healed Them Of Their Spots
Read an essay by a middle-schooler at a Catholic school.
Learned a whole lot about the great things that Jesus did for the leopards.
Something Hard To Spell Is Hard To Speak
My wife is a teacher and a kid in 7th grade did an oral presentation on the Orin Guten......
toward the end she finally realized he was presenting on the Orangutan.
Still Technically True
A couple of days ago, a student wrote that Indiana Jones was a "forced to be wreckin' with."
Close, But Not Quite, Indeed
A student who probably meant to write "Nassi-Shneiderman-diagram" on an exam but instead wrote "Nazi-Shneiderman..." Well, it sounded German.
Close enough, but not quite.
This Sounds Like A Talk To Text ProblemGiphy
I had a student write a paper about the poetry of Emily Dickinson, but he spelled her last name as "Dick in Son" all the way through.
It was wild.
"What makes someone bad in bed?"
WHERE TO BEGIN?!
The list is endless.
Half the time all it takes to be better is a little effort.
"What makes someone bad in bed?"
I love sex. But it can be stressful. I've always found connection to be one of the best lessons.

Love is so elusive these days isn't it?
Who knows what anyone is looking for in the relationship department anymore.
It's all too exhausting.
But people we keep trying.
"Why are you single right now?"
I'm single because I've given up. And I'm good. For now.

Alright. Now that we've laid out all the excuses, let's get to matching with some people.
There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

Overcome with joy

Who knows what's in store for us after our lives come to an end.
But the first word in that term can be misleading.
Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.
What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"

Those poor, innocent creatures.
They'd still be here if they weren't so delicious...

"It's fat tasted better spread on bread than butter."
"Not to mention, because they evolved without humans, they were easy to hunt."
"You could tie one to your back, and roll another to the ship and they would just let you."
"Conversely, the dodo, while as easily captured by sailors, tasted awful."
"It was completely unpalatable."
Don't forget the nose plugs
"Antarctica smells like penguin poop."
"Antarctica is a desert, it is too cold for bacteria to live."
"Nothing there to clean up penguin droppings."
