For Kicks and Giggles

I know what you’re thinking. This article is going to be horrifically dumb, considering it’s education jokes. The reason for my writing of this post is that in my past posts, I’ve been a bit morbid and want to break out of the habit of being so serious. Now, these aren’t going to be your average school jokes. They may in fact be pertinent to you. I will, in the later listings, give citations to where the jokes came from. Some are from books and others are via online.

One of my favorite books about education – though mainly for kicks and giggles is “F in Exams.” Basically, someone compiled a bunch of humorous answers to test questions and stuck them, conveniently, between the binding of a book.

One of the ones, as shown by this picture that someone took and posted to tumblr, makes me wish that I was this clever when I didn’t know the answer to a question:

Laughinglindsay actually reviewed this book and said that this book will not help you, but is quite good if you need a break from the stress of exams. I personally love obscure books like this one.

Of course, it’s such a rarity to have a book like one of these around. Luckily the internet is available if we need to get off course of our studies and take a nice breath. Anti Jokes do make a wonderful compensation. For you literacy nuts out there, this anti joke was obviously posted by one among you:

“Knock knock.

Who’s there?

To.

To who?

To Whom.”

This particular joke has 10,978 thumbs up on the site.

Another website I am particularly fond of – but only has a small section on work/education related topics is FML. This is one of the “jokes” that make me feel bad but also are pretty funny – that is, if they are true. One can assume that some are so outlandish that they are not all true.

Today, my boss told me that, while he respects the fact that I have my own style, I have to stop wearing “that hideous wig” because apparently, it “makes the clientele uncomfortable”. I don’t have a wig. It’s my natural hair.

And for you science nuts out there, here is a joke you may find particularly interesting in regards to the field of Chemistry:

I heard that Oxygen and Magnesium were going out and I was like OMG! —Guest Fey off of About.

Another one I thought was clever enough to include (and appropriate enough) was this one: “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the precipitate.”

Anyway, now that I may or may not have made you bored out of your mind enough to go back to work, or interested you enough that you feel like you are rested enough to go back to the mundane, my job is done!
