Back in the dark ages (April 2007), the SA forum goons bravely shared their stories of the dumbest statements they have heard during their time in class. Sometimes it was a particularly idiotic student. On a few occasions, it was the teacher or professor making the boob. I promised that I would bring you all more of these ridiculous comments, and like a Pizza Hut, I'm going to deliver, even if it is a little late. So take out your textbooks, turn to the first page and spit out your gum. It's time to make room on your timetable for Laughing At Stupid People 101!

"Everyone that came in from Katrina were a bunch of jerks.
"That's not true. Everybody was very grateful and nice at the shelter I worked in.
"NUH-UH My boyfriend was in the National Guard and he said everyone at the Astrodome was a jerk. We should just kick out everyone from Louisiana right now!"
If her boyfriend was anything like her, I don't blame anybody. Besides, the ones that were in the Astrodome came from the Superdome, so I'd be pissed too.
"Oh, I know color of skin doesn't matter! I know this guy in my other class and he's really nice and he's Muslim, but he's also Christian too!"
Elliot said my breakup must have been due to the sweater curse, an unexplained phenomenon where anyone who gives their significant other a hand-knit sweater gets dumped. The only way to break the curse, Elliot said, was to destroy the sweater.
