Vox Pop: Silly Things Students Have Told Their Teachers

Vox Pop: Silly Things Students Have Told Their Teachers

Life is a hard and arduous journey, so let’s try to focus on the sillier and more ridiculous things in life. We went around asking teachers questions about the most absurd things they’ve heard from their students, and these are their answers!

“What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard from a student?”

Ms. Maria couldn’t think of anything more absurd than this!

“I became HONEST because of you!”

Ms. Gerri says she can’t remember anything much more memorable than this classic line.

“My dog ate my homework.”

Sometimes, love truly makes one blind.
Mr. Horne asked one of his college students for her thesis, and she replied with this:

“I can’t submit my paper because last night my husband went blind.”

They say that one can notice a woman is pregnant through her “pregnancy glow”, but in Ms. Laplana’s case, one of her students observed it through her apparent weight gain!

“After observing my weight gain: ‘Are you pregnant, Ms?’ (I really was.)”

“What’s the funniest answer to a question that a student has ever given you?”

On the first day of school, one must introduce themselves. This can be a potential avenue for hilarious revelations.
Mr. Monfre asked his student: “La-a, how do you pronounce your name?”

“It’s La dash a, you pronounce the dash. La-a”

Desperate times call for desperate measures, especially when it comes to Math problems!

It’s a given that young students are required to do physical activity during PE. In one class, Coach Jay asked his young student, “Why aren’t you moving?” His young student answered with this!

“I pooped! (Student in swimming class)”

(This last one requires a bit of context, because Mr. Wood couldn’t help himself from adding a pun.)

This is what Mr. Wood said: “I was with these American IB students who were incredibly smart. I told them: ‘I entered this pun competition, so I submitted 10 puns to a contest to see which one would win. I was so excited that one of my puns would win! But alas, no pun in ten did.’ After everyone laughed (which I’m sure they did), one of the girls confusingly looked to me and asked…”

“So there wasn’t a contest?!”


  • Mr. Monfre claims he knew twins by the official names of “LemonJello” and “OrangeJello”
  • As a follow-up, Ms. Laplana said another absurd question was: “Ms., will you go to prom with me?” 

Comment your most ridiculous answers. Stay silly, students!
