Embarassing But Cute Teacher Moment

Asked where the Pilgrims intended to go before veering off course and landing in Massachusetts, one of my students replies:

"The Vagina Colony."

Then she hears what she said, and blushes. Several other kids begin laughing uncontrollably. I say, smothering a smile, "VIRGINIA, yes, that's correct."

Kevin-in-the-front-row, who hasn't heard properly, yells "China? Nooooooo. What are you talking about?"

It's hard to overstate the important role played by the Vagina Colony in our country's founding.

As a college professor I was talking about the exam the following week. A foreign student in the front row (large lecture) asked "Are you going to f--k us on chapter 6?" It was an informal atmosphere but I was dumb founded. I said, "excuse me?" ... "Are you going to f--k us on chapter 6?" The class was silent, I was looking at the student deciding how to answer when a voice called out from the back "FOCUS, are you going to FOCUS on it"

True story!
