All students should be able to add something funny here, as I'm sure there have been numerous funny moments throughout everyone's student life. Here's a funny one from today: So I'm in an animal science course, where today we were learning about first aid and stuff. We learned about CPR, heatstroke, etc. When we were learning about stopping bleeding, we learned that pressure was the best method. The professor says, "And if you have access to something sterile, that's best. For example, you could use a tampon... not the inserting kind, but like the flat kind with wings." At this point, all the girls burst into laughter. Finally, the laughter subsides and a girl says, "Sir, all tampons are the inserting kind. What you're thinking of are pads." It was pretty funny!

OH MY! That is absolutely HILARIOUS!! Thank you so much for sharing that! I'm going to have to share that story! "Not the kind that you put in..." Priceless! Is your professor single?

I'm not sure, perhaps he is. He is a pretty cool professor overall. Most of the animal classes we talk about animals like they are all stuck outside. He's like, "all dogs and cats should be indoor pets." :) He even remembered to mention that rabbits and rodents can't vomit in the lecture when we talked about poisoning. A lot of vets don't know that.

It's really great that he's a good professor. I would imagine that would make the class that much more interesting. :)

My english teacher who's such a snob and who acts like a know-it-all. Teacher: Don't forget to bring your rubber SHOWS. (instead of shoes)

Haha. I suppose maybe I shouldn't laugh at that one though... there are a couple words I can't pronounce.

hahaha ;) well I have numerous funny stories but the one thing I won't forget was when I was in elementary.. my teacher said.. "Okay class, today we will learn about fractions.." then she said, "As an example, I will cut a piece of PICHA PAY (instead of pizza pie) into two.." I said, what tha?! She's the teacher, she's supposed to teach me and not the other way around!! Mostly, it's the wrong usage of grammar of the teacher ;)

Accents and grammar always make for funny lectures. Once an anatomy professor was talking to us about "hide-raw-hen-in" and I'm sitting there thinking, "how do you spell this compound? what is it? oh my gosh I can't believe he's going so fast like we should know this!" and then suddenly he said something about a bond with something and then I realized he was talking about "hydrogen". Although, those mistakes aren't always funny. I failed that class and now have to retake it because of horrible accents.

well i got an unbelievable but a funny one. i am a graduate in engineering. and in my engineering days i have come across lots of such idiot talk from my professors. no offence to anyone, all brilliant lecturers. anyway, this was when in my first year. we were introduced for the first time. the lecturer stepped on the dias,faced the class and introduced himself. his name, his educational and teaching background and then he said something that was totally unbelievable. he said " i have two daughters, both are girls." you can imagine the kind of catch we were in. we couldn,t laugh before him neither we could surpress it. we had a blast after the lecturer left the room. it was a laugh riot in there. i will post again if i can remember anything else.

We couldn't even surpress this one for a moment. In spite of possibly hurting the professor's feelings (and he's a vet too, so we were expecting lots). Surprisingly, he wasn't hurt. He was just like, "Wow, guess I am still learning even in my old age."

i remember another one. it was a hot day and the electricity failed. the class was getting very stuffy due to the heat. our lecturer asked us to do something that only he could have managed to do. He said" Please open the doors of the windows and let the atmosphere come in." You can imagine our disbelief. Anyways we did what we were told to do. We opened the doors of the windows to let the atmosphere enter our classroom.

That's a great story. I have a funny one too! My senior year of high school, I took a college-level economics class through the local community college. Our professor was also my 11th grade US History teacher so I already knew how 'interesting' he could be. So, the scene... think of 65 year old Fred Mertz (I Love Lucy) lookalike mixed with the personality of Ben Stein. That's Professor E. After our usual hour-long and uneventful note taking session, Professor E. says, "In conclusion: you can only get the bling-bling if you have some mad skills, yo (complete with 'gangster' hand gestures)!" I don't think I'd ever laughed so hard during a class in my life.
