There are lots and lots of classrooms around the country and around the world that are full of funny jokes and cartoons like these examples. Laughter is always good, and it helps people be more receptive to learning stuff like algebra.
While using letters in the place of numbers seems like it just should not be, it is not that hard to figure out. But you still have to be in the learnin’ mood. These two jokes are a good start, but after a few days, we’re sure that they just become background things for the students in this room.
I Am Always Watching
Students getting up to funny business is a common problem for many teachers, but one guy had the solution figured out. All it took was a grievous injury to his eye – so bad that he needed a fake peeper – and the students behaved much better when he left.
Does that hurt? Maybe it does the first couple of times. We bet it is a good time the first time he gets to do it for a new classroom. Nobody will disrespect a man who scoops out his eyeball and puts it on the desk to intimidate you. You are now intimidated.
Tell Me to Come to the Office Now, I Dare You
That's a lot of duct tape. Actually, good thing there's a lot of it because we imagine “being hung from the neck” was a worry during this event. An event it was! This was the principal of a school, and for every dollar you donate, you get a piece of duct tape to stick to the wall, keeping this administrator stuck there for, we assume, the better part of a week.
That is certainly one way to raise money for charity. He doesn't look so happy though. Maybe over the holiday break. How about a month? A month sounds good. No more assemblies, at least.
Time to Begin the Ritual
Teachers have to enter into their classrooms day in and day out and do the same things over and over and over again, sometimes for years on end. They have to spice it up a little bit. This guy, for instance, decided his thing would be to wear a hat and cape whenever he did an experiment. He certainly looks like he's teaching at Hogwarts.
We hope this was physics or chemistry class or something like that and not...biology. There is a periodic table of elements hanging on the wall next to the screen, so we are going to have to go with chemistry.
Can't Slip One Past This Teacher
Ryan was working on his spelling – which can be difficult for some – and he seemed to be having a tough time with one of the words. His dad, an actuary or someone with similar employment, stepped in to see if he could help in any way.
The word that Ryan was supposed to be spelling was “disappear,” but Ryan's dad saw a different word, “appraised.” Incredibly, they have the exact same letters, just in a different order. However, “appraised” is a bit of a tough word for someone of Ryan's age, giving this teacher a hint that he had some help.
