funny stuff from the worlds of teachers and learners

This is the time of year when my teacher friends and colleagues send me all sorts of inadvertent funnies that show up in assignments and exams. Here are a few choice ones from recent reports:

" when I heard we had to do a placement in this course, I was a little spectacle..."

" Aristotle was an ancient Geek whose theories still influence us today..."

" so many decisions about sport in the late 19th century depended on the impotence of public men..."

" Orwell wrote 1984 to warn us about the dangers of computer surveillance and its threatening presence, like a giant octopus spreading its testicles all over the world.."

and, my personal favourite.....

" Queen Mary died after a long and bloody period."

There's hundreds more, but I thought you might enjoy these appetizers.
Learning is fun; teaching is an adventure!


  1. These are great. I especially liked the one about impotent men...one letter makes all the difference ;)

  2. Derli-- yes indeed; that one little letter. I was thinking that other letters might be funny in that one, too, like pubic men .... anyway, you get the drift.
    hope all is well with you
