Today in class, we're studying Chinese literature. I was giving a little background on China, and the Great Wall came up.
Me: The Great Wall was used to keep out invaders from the north. What invaders were coming into China?
Kid: The Mongolians!
Me: Exactly! What's a famous Mongolian invader who attacked China?
Kid: Chaka Khan!
LOL! I love that song!
I love these 'today in class' posts. They are so funny.
I LOVE IT!
I did a Maro Polo play with my students last year. When Kublai Khan showed MP his palace, he asked what Marco thought.
Marco Polo was supposed to say something like "tremendous". Instead he said "terrifying!"
It was too fun.
LOL. You gotta love them.
Why is it everything today is so hilarious? The facepalm at the end makes all the difference. :)
(I'd say lol, but my new internet laugh is something along the lines of Mwahahaha! So I'll say that instead.)
LOL! You have the funniest students. My high school classes were never that entertaining!
You know that song will be in my head the rest of the day!
(though I haven't thought about Chaka khan in years. I may have to google the video for fun now!)
You should have a notebook or journal and jot down funny things your students say. I have one for each of my children. I used to teach third grade, I wish I had done it then!! Kids are hilarious!
Hee hee. Lovelovelove these. You're kids are great. Do any of them ever come on here?
I want to come hang out in your classroom, this is awesome!
*snarf* They get me every time!
Lmao! Too funny!
Giggle. Oh to be a fly on a wall in a classroom.
Yet another great Today in Class post. Makes me miss teaching :)
Ha! That's funny. And, now I have that song going through my head
thanks a lot ;)
You have yourself a witty class there! :)
LOL. That's so funny. What cute kids!
LOL!! That's awesome.
Great exchange. I am not laughing too much since as I have gotten older what I meant to say morphs into something funny more and more.
This literally made me LOL. I mean, the people in my office looked at my funny. HAHAHAHAHA!! Now I can't sto; singing "I Feel For You"...
Thanks, Beth, for sharing these funnies. They're appreciated!!
"I'm Every Women" does sound like invasion to me when you think about it. lol!
Hahaha!! Your students sound fabulous. Aren't teenagers great?
Ha ha ha! Smart kid!
Ha ha ha! Wherever will I get my laughs next year? :(
LOL! now that song is going to be stuck in my head!
too funny! :0)
Beth, I'm telling you - you've got to put together one of those coffee table gift books with this stuff!
Hahaha! Oh my. Well he got one part of the name right. XD
LOL! How cute!
Oh, thank you! This was exactly what I needed to read today. Hilarious!
Bahaha what a great way to end my day!!! Thanks for sharing Beth that was hilarious!!!
Bwwwwaaaahhhaahhaa! I love Chaka Khan, by the way. :-D
That's hilarious. Thanks for sharing! Hee!
That is so awesome. The fact that your students even know that name should be worth some bonus points. Only if they can sing the song though. Thanks for sharing, Beth. I had to pass your story on to co-workers. We all needed the laugh.
I agree with Kelly - that song with be in my head all day.
Well, at least she was close! :)
I love these posts! Almost makes me wish I were a teacher
Seriously ... these make me laugh out loud! Love them!
Funny! Kinda like what I read last night in Christopher Moore's Lamb where Biff said, "you know how why the Vegemites decided to smite the Marmites?"
And also, love your pun: the Great Wall came up. :)
Haha, this post makes me think of a certain South Park episode...lol
Isn't teaching sometimes hilarious?!?
One of my Greek teenagers recently stunned me by asking in front of the whole class,
"What's a PERVERTED VERB...?"
It took me a moment to work out that he meant "IRREGULAR VERB"
in Greek the expression 'anomala' means BOTH perverted and irregular...wow, the mind boggles doesn't it?...
