Back To School

back to school

Across the country, school supplies have been purchased and many children have returned to the classroom to start a new school year. The give and take between teachers and students can produce some memorable – and humorous – moments. The following are from stories shared in Reader’s Digest.

Teacher: Where is your homework?
Student: It’s still in my pencil.

Teacher: Why can’t freshwater fish live in salt water?
Student: The salt would give them high blood pressure.

Teacher: How would you make the world a better place?
Student: I’d make potato skins a main dish rather than an appetizer.

Teacher: Mira went to the library at 5:15 and left at 6:45. How long was Mira at the library?
Student: Not long.

Teacher: Why do you think our librarian is leaving?
Student: Because she’s read all our books?

Teacher: In Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, a man who is discontented with his life, wakes up to find he has been transformed into a large, disgusting insect.
Student: So, is this fiction or nonfiction?

Teacher: Why aren’t you wearing your glasses?
Student: My glasses are for reading, not math.
