Being a teacher is no easy task. They are not only responsible for molding young minds and sharing information, but have to entertain their classes, answer pestering questions, assign unwanted homework, and deal with students who just aren’t interested in paying attention. And on top of that, teachers need a good sense of humor to get through each day.
Sometimes, the best teachers are those who could mistaken as stand-up comics. Teachers who can laugh at themselves and at their students can teach us a whole lot more, and their lessons can be a hilarious reminder of what it’s like to deal with the frustrations of being in school. Teachers who go above and beyond are usually the ones students remember forever. After all, isn’t laughter the best way to make something incredibly memorable?
Thanks to the Internet, there are plenty of hilarious teacher antics that have gone viral over the years. Check out the unique ways these teachers made their students — and the Internet — completely crack up!
The Teacher Who Used Minions
When Despicable Me came out in 2010, it became an instant hit thanks to its best characters: the bright yellow, weird-speaking, goggles-wearing minions. Kids and adults alike love the minions, and teachers know that. So one teacher decided to spice up one of his lectures by bringing the beloved characters to life.
That’s right — this teacher taught an entire class in a minions suit. The jury’s still out, though, on whether he actually spoke minion-speak the entire time, or if he just danced around the classroom.
The Professor Who Tested His Students’ Memories
When you’re learning in a large lecture hall it’s easy to slip by unnoticed — or even skip class altogether and only show up for important dates like tests. However, you may not want to take the risk if your teachers are anything like this guy.
This brilliant college professor decided to throw a curveball at his students during the midterm exam. The last question asked students to identify which picture was really of their professor. The problem? All four men looked eerily alike, and only serious students who’d attended class could answer it correctly.
