Who Said Teachers Don’t Have a Sense of Humor?

Instead of cartoons this month, I am posting a series of photos about teacher humor. Of the 30-plus photos that I saw, these are the ones that made me laugh. Enjoy!

All of the photos come from .imgur.com / Via reddit.com    If you want to see full array of the photos, see here.

    For every teacher who is busy correcting a lot papers and tests (like me), this will make you smile throughout your work. The rest of the world will laugh too.

    Great fun. Thanks, Larry.

    I’ve just returned from a week long writing workshop with Marge Piercy. It was held on Cape Cod where she resides full-time. I stayed with my high school friend, Martha for the week, had 12 great classmates, disciples, of course. Marge is brusque and bossy, fun and funny. She used every swear word at least once, and including the “F bomb.” The class ended with a Garden Party at her home. Her gardens prodigious enough that she and her partner, Ira Wood, eat from them all year long. Ira’s memoir, I Live With Her.

    Glad to be back in the Willamette Valley for the remainder of the summer. Tyee Wine Festival and dinner upcoming, and etc.etc. Hope you’re enjoying yourself in Palo Alto. Be sure to let us know the next time you’re headed north or south from Seattle. Oh, here’s a poem I wrote during Marge’s class and read at the Library Reading attended by hundreds:

    Every Idea Is A Star

    Along the wild Rogue River,

    the night sky looks like confetti strewn across the dark.

    Friend Devin refused to sleep indoors,

    Dreams, he said, need starlight.

    When Rumi danced with his Beloved near the fire,

    there was the sound of a flute, wine, glittering night above.

    At that Eastern Oregon lake, she saw The Three Sisters

    white flanks, moon-rise in a sparkling sky.

    On the evening he discovered the Peony Star Nebula,

    the river sang its song as we searched the sky with a telescope.

    Gold stars for superior work; silver, one step below,

    our teachers ranked us with the five point star.

    The famous astronomer hosted Cosmos.

    Your light, Gemini poet, does not vanish at dawn.
