Introduces the Solar System to students. Puts up picture of planets in order from the Sun. Only read the first three planets aloud to the students.
Student A: "Uranus!"
Hoard of Students: *snickers* Uranus! *laughter* Uranus!
Teacher: Could you explain why that is so funny?
Students: *dead silence*
Teacher: Okay, then we're done laughing at names of things.
Class heads into hallway and Teacher debates stopping students to have them explain why "Uranus" is funny to a coworker. Teacher can't keep a straight face just thinking about bringing it up to another adult. Lets moment pass.
Student approaching me for help with classwork.
Student A: "Duche!"
Me: "What did you say?"
Student A: "Nothing"

T: "Because it was sad."
A: "No because the dog barked at it."
Student B: "That's not a..."
A: "Sure, sure, sure, sure" *while waving off Student B's comment*
Student: " Want to hear a long joke?"
S1: "I got all straight A's."
S2: "Nuh uh, you got crooked A's."
S1: "Wait so is nobody going to take [Susan's] place?"
In reference to a student being absent for Head's Up 7-Up.
S2: "In your wet dreams."
Me: "Excuse me...?"
S2: "They asked if someone was going to take her place and so we have to say 'in our wet dreams."
Me: "Hey...come here real quick, I want to talk to you about something..."
S: "Are you gonna get a husband?"
Me: "I don't know where I'd get one. Do you think you can order one off Amazon?"
S: "Yeah, for like $1,000."
Me: "Nah, I don't have that kind of money right now."
