Have a laugh. It's on me

My students are idiot.

I found a bunch of hilarious newspaper headlines and put them all over my door and next to the pencil sharpener (places in the classroom where teens tend to hang out, you know how it is).  I figured kids could enjoy a good laugh while they sharpened away.

Only they didn't get my newspaper jokes.

Take, for example, this newspaper headline:

 
Hilarious, right?  Today I watched as a student furrowed his eyebrows, scrunched his lips, and stared intently at the newspaper.  "It's funny, Brad."  I tried to help.  "Who's Diana?" was his only response.

DO YOU SEE WHAT I'M WORKING WITH HERE, PEOPLE?!?  I figured since my efforts to find hilarious newspaper headlines were obviously in vain, I would at least share them with my blogging buddies.  You guys will see the humor in these, right?

RIGHT?!?






 
Yah... I'll let you guys know if I see him...












And for my favorite.....


Ah, reminds me so much of Price, the little hick town where I grew up.

If those newspaper headlines didn't cheer you up, just remember- it's a three day weekend. 
BOO-YAH!

  12. As a student, I would have just been too furious over the fact that I had to be at school to find any humor in these, but right now.. I'm a student & i'm finding so much humor in these! Thanks for posting!

  13. Hahahaha! These were so funny! Not sure how they could not catch the humor in these headlines!

  14. It was only a burrito?!?!?! Oh my goodness, how big was that thing???

    ReplyDelete
  15. These are such a kick! Not too surprised that your student didn't know who Diana was (I assume you filled him in??), since it was a little bit "before his time". But still. Kids should known what the name 'Diana' means.

    The "teen pregnancy rates drop off after age 25" gets me every time!

    I really need to read the newspaper more!

  38. These are HILARIOUS- how did your kids NOT get them? I almost cried when I started telling my students about Hanson and they were like 'huh'? Needless to say, that lesson was spent educating them on 90s pop bands...
