Funny Things My Students Have Said Recently

"Uh, we took a group vote? And Chapter 10 is bogus." (to explain why he wasn't doing his work)

"America is for AmeriCANS, not AmeriCAN'Ts." (purely to annoy me, I think)

"Hey, you're a fan of the things that are weird. . ." (prefacing a question about karma)

"Are you EVER gonna get married?!" (completely out of the blue)

"Dude, the Christians OWNED the First Crusade!" (during a discussion about Islam)

Flannery - I pointed out that killing people because they have different religious beliefs than you do is not exactly something one should be proud of.

Melissa - Most days they're pretty cool.

Orange - No, yesterday I told a kid to sit the eff down and shortly thereafter threatened to jump out the window.
