From a teacher: After a very brief overview of the Cold War for a book we were reading...

Student: Ms. Chebrutta, why do you know so much about history if you aren't a history teacher?
Me: Well, I read a lot of books.
Student: Like, for ... fun?
Me: Yup.
Student: Eww. I guess I don't want to be like you when I grow up.

Recently from a teacher's class: The assignment was to translate the balcony scene into text messages, portraying how modern teens would talk.

Romeo: I'm outside of your window.
Juliet: Creeper.

Student: Even love comes from the brain?
Me: Yes.
Student: So instead of saying "I heart you" we should say "I brain you"?

Cute little quips:

A little boy had been playing outside with the other kids for a while when he came into the house and asked his grandma, 'Grandma, what's that called when two people sleep in the same room and one is on top of the other?' She was a little taken aback, but she decided to just tell him the truth. 'It's called sexual intercourse, darling'. Little Tony just said, 'Oh, okay,' and went back outside to play with the other kids. A few minutes later he came back in and said angrily, 'Grandma, it isn't called sexual intercourse. It's called Bunk Beds. And Jimmy's mum wants to talk to you.'

"It's a frickin' Elephant, it says so on the picture!" he said.... and so it did: A F R I C A N  Elephant.

An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into Heaven?" The boy thought it over and said, "Well I'll run in and out and in and out and keep slamming the door until St Peter says, "For Heaven's sake Dylan, come in or stay out".
