More Dumb Things Heard In Class
In a 200-level maths class at university:
"I don't 'get' pie charts."
"Umm...So wait, are we like, in A.D. right now?"
"Interesting thing in the paper; Kurt Vonnegut dies at 84."
"The guy who wrote I, Robot. Duh."
"Ooh. That's too bad."
The class is discussing a school-sponsored trip from Philadelphia to London.
Voice from the third row: "Are we going by bus?"
"Where does rain come from?"
She asked this in a history class. In 11th grade.
My science teacher told me this one:
"Is this a male or female skeleton?"
"Right. How did you know?" (expecting the 'wide hips' explanation)
"Because there's no penis bone!"
While doing a lab in 8th grade someone read "Genital Desserts" instead of "Gelatin Desserts".
