Teachers are usually nurturing and try their best to help their students succeed. Sometimes that takes the form of joking around with students, and sometimes its just too hard to resist that sick burn when the opportunity presents itself.


Reddit user u/OskarGR8 asked:

"Teachers of Reddit, what is the best roast you ever told a student?"

Moby Dick

Giphy

My dad was an English teacher on the west side of Chicago in the 80s. They were reading Moby Dick and some kid in the back of the classroom yelled "MY d*ck" and my dad responded with, "were talking about long novels not short stories"

Horses!

While learning about Catherine the Great, one kid in class said "oh she's the one that loooved horses" and the teacher nonchalantly replied, "Yes, she greatly enjoyed the occasional ride."

Sub

Giphy

I was substitute teaching last spring in a high school math class. Pretty easy gig, the students were just doing worksheets while I wrote bathroom passes and monitored behavior. One kid is trying to push my buttons by singing Mo Bamba by Sheck Wes. When he got to the line "I got hoes", I interjected "no you don't". It effectively got him to stop singing. Nothing less cool than being roasted by the sub.

First day of class. Walked in to see a giant cock and balls drawn on the whiteboard. Uh - OK, this isn't entirely unexpected from a bunch of 14/15 year old boys from very religious families.

Start to wipe it off. It's been done in permanent marker. Hearing lots of snickering from a particular corner.

Small voice whispers to me 'if you go over it with drywipe, it'll come off, Miss'. Considered the implications of the Head walking in as I'm painstakingly going over the outline.

Slowly, I turn my head towards the source of the snickering.

Three boys are then instructed to do it for me. 'you need to pay more attention to the base of the shaft', 'Michael, you've missed the tip of the glans'. Once it had been done and the entire thing had been erased, I ended the ten minutes of agony for them by announcing 'Right, just before we start the work you will now be continuing into your lunchbreak, I just want to say one thing. If that artwork is in any way, shape or form a Self Portrait, I strongly suggest that the owner gets himself to a doctor, as Peyronies will interfere with both masturbatory and, if a miracle occurs and they find themselves somebody actually willing to copulate with them, sexual satisfaction'.

Burn

I was about to start a lesson when a goofball kid from another class I also teach walked to the still open door. Sounds slightly better in Finnish, but whatever.

"Hey teach! My next lesson is boring. Can I come to this one instead?"

"I'm sorry studentname, but this is a 7. grade lesson. An 8. grader like you would be at an unfair advantage."

"Awww. How come can't still be on the 7. grade?"

"I also wonder this every single day."

Contraception

Giphy

I was teaching a contraception lesson to a group of fourteen year old boys. We had just finished practicing putting condoms, and moved into female contraception. The boys rapidly list interest and started getting rowdy, disrespecting the school nurse who was leading the lesson. I got their attention back and announced, "If any of you are ever lucky enough to get a girlfriend, it will be important that you understand how this works. Pay attention!" Quiet fell over the class and they behaved for the rest of the period

2017

One day a kid from my health class brought a fidget spinner to play with. My health teacher took one look and told him, "2017 called and wants their toy back. Put it away."

Trash

Not a teacher but my friend was, and still is annoying sometimes and looks for some laughs every now and then. We sit down on a bench during lunch time and we see a teacher walk by. She calls over to the teacher, "HEY SIR, GIMME THAT BIN. WE HAVE SOME TRASH."

He looks back at us and yells,

"WHY, DO YOU WANT ME TO PUT YOU IN IT?"

Horses again

Giphy

3rd grade.

Class trouble maker is galloping around the classroom pretending to be a horse. Teacher is continually telling him to go to his seat.

He finally starts to gallop to his chair when the teacher walks up, takes his chair, looks at him and says

"horses don't sit"

Made him stand the entire rest of the class.
I think about that moment a lot. One of my favorite grade school memories.

Reflects on the grades

Teacher here. I mic dropped in class last week and my students are still talking about it.

I teach psych and we are going over intelligence theories. A smart ass student who loves to push buttons asked why men are smarter than women because obviously all these theories are made by men so therefore all men are smarter. He does this all the time and the fact that I'm a woman he loves to try and say I'm not as good as the male teachers.
I looked at him and said "if men are smarter why aren't your grades higher?" The class lost it and he turned red and didn't try push it anymore.

Your mother

The other day another teacher came into our class who has a bald head and he just got it waxed or something and my mate says "Fresh polish sir?" and the teacher fires back with "Anything for your mother mate." Class lost it laughing.

Dogs > People

Giphy

Teacher (my mother): Please sit down, the lesson has started.

Student: You can't tell me that, I'm not a dog.

Teacher: I know you're not a dog, because a dog is able to do that simple command.

She is still proud about that one and tells it at family gatherings.

-TraximusW

Or, be president.

I didn't intend it as a roast, but I got a long serious look and a pause when I told a student, "You're smart enough to be President, but with your manners, you're going to get fired from McDonalds instead."

Wake Me Up

After announcing the upcoming quiz for the umpteenth time....

Student: Wait! What? You can't spring a test on us with one day notice!

Me: I've been announcing it daily for two weeks.

Student: I never heard it.

Me: It's ok. I only wake you up for the really important announcements.

Class roared.

Ben Franklin

Giphy

In 8th grade, we had a mock Constitutional Convention and we were each assigned a real person to portray. The class clown was assigned Benjamin Franklin.

When questioned on her decision, my teacher's response was "I tried to think of who would be perfect for the role and no-one came to mind. Then I thought of who would be the worst possible reincarnation of Ben Franklin... and here we are."

While explaining how reproduction works, one of my students was making gnarly comments so I said "Dont worry, you won't be getting any.."

It's hell

I had a kid picking on the religious girl in class, asking her all sorts of tricky theological questions just so he could catch her out or something. When he asked "Does hell exist?" I said "Yes, it does. It's here, in the classroom, with you."

Right hand man

Giphy

Student sitting with three friends: "1 in 4 people in [town the school is in] have an STD. (Pointing to friends) One... Two.. Three... Four." As he said four he pointed to himself and smiled like an idiot, as if to say he had sex.

Disregarding the nastiness of implying that he had himself an STD, I said: "[student name], you don't need to worry about it. You can't catch anything from your hand."

Don't dish it 

I was joking around with a student one day, and he was making some insults about my name. In response, I asked him. "Do you know what I like about you?" "What?" he replied. I said "Nothing!" He laughed about that.

The next day, our guidance counselor pulled me aside with a worried expression. "I got a call from [student's] mother. Did you tell [student] you like nothing about him?"

It turned out that the kid told his mother about that because he thought it was funny, but she was like, "How dare a teacher say that to my child!", and she called the school to complain. Fortunately, the administration believed my report of how it had happened.

Failing?

My high school teacher put the sign up by the clock that said "time will pass but will you?" May not be a roast but my high school teachers were very "dry"

Arrests were made on Wednesday night when an appearance by Ann Coulter turned into a protest rally.

The protest lasted for over four hours, outside of Wheeler Hall at UC Berkley where she was scheduled to give a speech on immigration.

Coulter is a notoriously conservative media pundit.

The event, entitled "Adios, America!" was a discussion on the "current United States immigration system and the dangers of mass immigration," according to Daily Beast.

She is known for spewing anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric, so it is no surprise that the talk included more of same ideas.

Skylar Schoemig of The Daily Californian Tweeted out quotes from the speech.



Barricades and police in riot gear guarded the building as Coulter was escorted into the event.


Demonstrators chanted "Ann Coulter go away, immigrants are here to stay" and "this is what democracy looks like" as she walked in.


Protestors also formed a human chain to prevent ticket holders from entering the event.



Moments after Coulter entered the Wheeler Hall auditorium, an attendee called her a "Nazi."

That woman was Brandy Youssif, a student from Berkeley City College.

Youssif was quickly handcuffed and dragged out of the room. According to police and school officials, she was one of six or seven people who were arrested.

Newsweek reported that she was given assault charges, with her bail set to $60,000.

Refuse Fascism, the protest's organizer, is calling for Youssif's release.

Atlas Winfrey, a Refuse Fascism protest organizer, estimated that 2,000 people at the protest.

Winfrey believes that more protests will take place in response to the arrests that were made.

It's not the first time that Coulter's presence has lead to a protest at the college.

In 2017, UC Berkley cancelled her scheduled appearance on the campus after officials feared they wouldn't be able to secure the speech site from demonstrators.

People on Twitter expressed confusion over why she was invited back to the school.





Others praised the students for taking a stand against Coulter and UC Berkeley.


Jack, a UC Berkeley Freshman, expressed his disappointment over the event to Berkleyside.

"It's even more appalling because today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. I'm here to represent my community as a queer and trans student. It's appalling that the administration would even consider having someone with extremely hateful rhetoric."

As of yet, UC Berkeley has not made a statement about the controversy.
