This particular logo had created an uproar after it was pointed out by a professional graphic designer on his Twitter account. This official logo was created for the Women’s Network.
As the name suggests, the organization is related to and dedicated to the concept of womanhood but the logo includes a huge masculinity-like symbol masked within it. It’s not that hard to figure out the oxymoron here and the graphic designers didn’t miss taking note of it.
The Proper Way
There are some logos that require you to look at them the proper way in order to understand the intended meaning. Like this logo here, which is not easy to forget, after what you see at a glance…
Or rather, it’s not easy to forget what you immediately think after that first glance. It was really hard to comprehend the intended meaning if the explanation was not given by the person who pointed it out. Yet, even after the given explanation, you’ll find it difficult to look at it in the intended way!
If You Need an Episiotomy
Logo failures are much more hilarious because of the ignorance of the creator and ignorance is not bliss here. Just like this simple and humble neighborhood barber shop, which has spectacularly failed to make its name a little bit fancier.
But, the shop owner is also none the wiser. Either they don’t have an idea about the word and meaning the logo is depicting here, or they’re using it as a publicity stunt. Whatever the case may be, it would be far more fitting if they transform the shop into an Episiotomy center.
What’s Wrong With Them?
There’s something seriously wrong with the Women’s Network. This volunteer-based central governmental organization has a brilliant agenda, but a terribly poor logo designer.
This is another official logo revealed by the group, and well, it went haywire again. Utterly irrational and vulgar, this logo actually doesn’t deliver anything. There’s a huge difference between what it was meant to be, and what it is depicting. Time to sack the graphic designer!
As Simple as That
Well, someones gotta say it — this intramural sports poster is something that will give you a good laugh at first glance. Then, you’ll notice the words on the right-hand side, and then the entire thing will make sense. You’ll probably laugh even harder at this point.
Once this one was pointed out by a Twitter user, suggestions immediately started rolling in the comments thread. While some suggest using it for a Viagra advertisement, some just advise taking a cool shower to handle the hard situation. It’s basic and simple!
Get it From the Source
At first glance, this logo looks like a perfectly nice way to advertise some maple syrup. However, upon closer inspection, it’s become clear why this is most definitely a logo fail. Now that we know precisely where that maple syrup comes from, we think we’ll try a different brand.
Maybe there are other syrups from Vermont that don’t originate from a specific person in Vermont, if you get our drift. We’d be willing to trade authenticity for hygiene, in this case.
The Height of Being Inappropriate
Talk about an inappropriate and controversial logo! Based on the logo alone, it’s hardly believable that anyone would choose to go to this dental clinic. You can’t even pass this one off as a publicity gimmick.
We often say creativity fails when imagination falls short but the wrong expression of a seemingly simple image can be far riskier. It carries the danger of being misleading, unfitting, and worse — vulgar. Logo designers should ponder on the matter before creating anything.
Really? Is it supposed to be a monkey? Even if you spend ages looking at the logo, it’s quite hard to see a monkey here. Instead, what you can easily see is a vulgar image of an organ.
It’s surprising to realize that this institution failed to double-check the logo design before publishing it. It doesn’t take much observation to spot the mistake here. Or, is this the problem with someone’s imagination running high?
Have you ever seen an epic signature fail? If not, take a look at this perfect example! This Gavin B signature is one of the worst signatures you’ll ever see in your life. Who signs their name like this, anyway?
Apparently, no one! Because Gavin B is a fictional character from the series Silicon Valley. So, many individuals on the comment thread have suspected that this one is totally intentional, meant to be a hilarious gimmick on the show.
Mixed messages can be utterly confusing and hilarious, even if they’re meant for a good reason. Just look at this advertisement and you’ll find the most suitable example. Though the logo is creative and fun, it fails to depict the intended meaning.
The comment thread of this tweet is even funnier than the logo itself! Some have suggested that this logo was surely made by a would-be bride’s father. One great comment has pointed out that it’s actually a warning hiding in plain sight. Ingenious, indeed!
This logo was a PR nightmare! When it was published, people thought of it as a sort of satirical design at first, but they quickly realized that this logo design was meant to be the official logo.
Obviously, the institution got some serious backlash and they had to take down the logo. But not before it was widely circulated, criticized, and ridiculed on the internet. Some people even made a joke by commenting that this must be the only college in the world to require such things during the admission process!
Originally published around 15 years ago, this logo of OGC had everyone giggling. It’s a simple and straightforward logo, which didn’t mean to go overboard with design or expression. Yet, disasters happen sometimes!
It seems an honest mistake, though. Because the logo was perfectly normal and understandable until someone turned it 90 degrees clockwise. This one move was enough to explode into the disaster, which was lurking sideways from the very beginning.
Yum or Yuck?
This Czech logo design is as suggestive as it gets! Though it was supposed to be an innocent image, like all other failed logo designs, it never passed the test. You don’t even have to have a dirty mind to deduce the vulgar meaning of the image.
It’s not even hidden! The designers seem to have taken a shot at damage control by adding the second piece of sausage but the damage was already done. Instead, that addition has made the logo even more hilarious!
Why Not Blue?
The only question that’ll come to your mind after seeing this logo — why didn’t they use the color blue here? If it was supposed to mean water, then blue was obviously the right choice. Instead, they wanted to be unique and experimental, and ended up creating this disgusting logo.
What is this anyway? People have tried hard to figure that out in the comment thread. While one has suggested that it was a sewage monster doing yoga, one provided a fun caption stating, “Poop Cruise!” Even that comment is more creative than the logo itself.
Trying Too Hard
When it comes to designing a logo, it’s best not to try too hard to make it symbolic because that may result in accidentally being suggestive. Take this logo, for instance, where the apparent tree and bird are turned into something completely different.
Or rather, into many different things, but directed at the same vulgarity. Even with the intended meaning, the logo is designed unrealistically. We hope this college doesn’t offer a course in graphic designing!
This isn’t the first time the world has had suggestive content in the form of a logo. However, this one here started the trend of posting logo design fails on Twitter and other sites on the internet. Great inspiration, eh?
Many people have pointed out that this design seems to pass for a genuine design accident, instead of being an intentional gimmick. But, that doesn’t make the institution any less responsible. They probably hoped that no one else would notice the blunder.
Founding Something Else
This particular foundation has clearly found a new standard of poor logo design. As for the first mistake, the H is dotted here, which is just bizarre! Never dot your H, folks!
People went on to joke that the logo design must be inspired by some teenage boy’s search history. Joking aside, such callousness is destructive to the reputation of any organization out there. After all, it doesn’t take much time to double-check a design before finalizing it.
In the case of logo designing, it’s always best to keep the spelling clear. Using random fonts or graphics within the word can result in a risky or controversial logo, just like this one here.
If the members of the group spared an extra moment of thoughtful consideration, then this logo would not have turned into a derogatory word. They missed the point completely, and Twitter users didn’t forget to take note of it!
The Exploding Community
Talk about a logo with an entendre! This one here is a perfect example of how a simple design failure can go haywire. The name of the community area is written in a fairly simple form, with the dangerous design tucked within.
The design is really simple but childish, as a Twitter user has pointed out. But when childish stuff gets risky, suggestive, or derogatory, it’s better to replace it with something safer and simpler. Otherwise, the result can explode quite easily.
Well Planned or Not?
Social media users have suspected that this derogatory logo design is completely intentional. That’s because the deduced meaning of the logo and the colloquial meaning of the gym owner’s name is the same! Well planned, no?
Or, this logo design failure can be completely accidental. It was supposed to be a pair of gymnast rings and maybe the owner meant to do exactly that. But, the disaster was there from the very beginning, he just didn’t see it coming.
The ‘Unleashed’ One
If you can see it, you get it! This logo has unleashed everything bare for you to spot it. A popular stance, of course, but that doesn’t mean it’s not unethical or controversial.
Many organizations, companies, and brands intentionally use titillating or suggestive logos to attract more customers. This cheap trick may come in handy for a certain period of time, but ultimately damages the brand’s reputation in the process.
Definitely a Collision
This car company is unlike any other because they sell cars with unique graffiti that happens to look similar to a phallic structure. Maybe they meant that the car is masculine in nature?
The company probably fixes the cars too… or do they fix the guys?! There’s a huge collision of concepts here! Totally irrational and unnecessary, this logo proves that a gimmick is not always attractive. It’ll be fun to see how many consumers will be interested in buying this car!
Have you ever tried a yummy kitty? Or a dish of piping hot cat chow mein or meow mein? Don’t be shocked if you’ve never heard of these! Obviously, such dishes don’t exist! Or do they?
That’s the confusion with this logo. This Asian cuisine restaurant’s logo has somehow managed to make a cat the course to be devoured! The result of an ill-advised logo design, of course! We wonder, what was wrong with the chicken?
Matching the Attitude
The logo of this bank was simply meant to be the abbreviation of its name. If you observe closely, you’ll see the letters too. But if you just glance at it, you’ll see completely different things, not at all related to banking services…
Or, maybe they are services that this bank offers? The logo comes with a problematic font, which has turned it into a rude finger gesture, or a phallic structure, depending on how you look at it. According to the internet, that’s exactly what banks do, by showing off their attitudes in times of dire need!
Ah, good ol’ MegaFlicks. Yes, that’s what this logo says — MegaFlicks. If you read something else, don’t worry, you’re most certainly not the only one who saw it that way at first.
Honestly, we wouldn’t be surprised if logo fails like this one is part of what contributed to streaming platforms taking over movie rental places. We most certainly wouldn’t want to walk into that store for a movie… who knows if we’d ever make it out?!
Speaking factually, there’s nothing wrong with the logo. What’s wrong is the name of the group itself, and that makes the logo and everything else, well, wrong!
This is a group with feminist ideologies for sure, but they should consider the name before finalizing it. Because the acronym of the full name is something, which is the opposite of the probable agenda of the group. Of course, the internet didn’t waste any time pointing out the irony.
A Little Exception
Thankfully, this particular logo is not overtly expressing anything wrong, but the concept of being inappropriate or suggestive is still hidden within the design. This shows the importance of double-checking and extra consideration before publishing.
Twitter users are also divided on this one. While some have purely seen nothing but a fountain pen in the design of the logo, many have located the problematic structure within the design. And once you see it, you can’t unsee it!
The Monkey, Again!
The year of the monkey in the Chinese Calendar seems to give birth to several hilarious logo designs. This is one of them — where the point of attention is obviously the monkey, and for good reason!
The drawing of the monkey is cute but a little suggestive, too. A few alterations and the logo would have been a simple and cute one, without any danger of being inappropriate. But they have missed their chance and it will remain the same, with that problematic tail!
Drinks and What?
Well, this logo directly addresses its potential consumers. But, for something uniquely women-specific, it would have been better to put a bit more consideration into the logo before finalizing the design.
There’s nothing wrong with the celebration of womanhood if it’s done in the right way! But this logo here bears the danger of being incredibly incorrect, masking the drink into something offensive.
Not a Good Show
If you just see or look at this logo for a split second, you may find nothing wrong. However, if you observe for just a bit longer, it becomes obvious! Anything that looks like a phallic structure is a problematic design, and this logo suffers from the same trope of being suggestive.
Making a phallic structure work in a logo, without the risk of being inappropriate, is not an easy task. The graphic designers need to be more creative and cautious in this regard. A little more consideration never goes amiss!
Hard to Figure Out
This particular logo is not controversial or risky, but it is confusing! Though some people can have an idea of what the shop sells, it’s almost impossible to figure that out from the logo alone. What it spells, or tells, is a mystery here!
The internet has pointed out that the worst part of this logo design is the unnecessary apostrophe. However, with or without the apostrophe, the logo is too messed up to figure out what it actually says.
Getting on Our Nerves
That’s exactly what this logo does with its immensely confusing design — it gets on our nerves. This logo is another one of those designs that’s hard to figure out clearly. You’ll need to give it some serious effort in order to understand.
Though the logo looks chic at first glance, you’ll soon understand that you can’t read it out in a normal way. Instead, you have to spell it in a straight-line format to figure out the word it says. Do people really have so much spare time?
The Outdated One
It’s not the logo, but the font that is used in it. This boring and childish font isn’t a perfect choice to use in any modern-day business sign. We think it’s time for them to grow up!
One Twitter user jokingly commented that the year 1992 called this gym to get its font back. It looks painfully childish and immature, for sure. Another brilliant comment says that the logo gives the impression that the gym is based on a ‘90s sitcom!
This logo of a radio station is not the worst, of course, but it’s quite funny. The internet has had a lot of fun interpreting the meaning of this particular logo…
While one has suggested that it is offensive and looks like a private organ, another has dismissed it by saying that it’s nothing but a heart with a radio antenna in it. Furthermore, one Twitter user has aptly pointed out that the name of the radio station is worse than the logo itself!
The Guessing Game
This is another logo that has left its onlookers guessing about what it says. The logo is stylish and colorful for sure, but no logo with letters in it can be successful if it can’t be spelled out properly…
Twitter users have become highly observant and imaginative while deducing what this logo says. One unanimous opinion was that the style of the logo is a clear rip-off of the official F1 logo. One has even gone further and noticed a little BMW M3 mixed in it!
This logo of the Washington Wizards gives off a mixed vibe. Depending on how you see it, it can be right or wrong. The phallic structure of the Washington Monument is obviously the focal point of attraction here.
One internet user has aptly pointed out the fact that the Washington Monument was structurally phallic before the designers got started with this logo. Some have focused on the magical part by stating that it looks exactly like a wizard’s wand and cloak.
The Win-Win One
This disturbing logo has a long and interesting history. Designed in 1989, the logo was highly publicized in several big cities around the world — like Miami, London, Moscow, and all over Italy. If you feel scandalized while looking at the logo, well, that’s exactly what the designer intended!
The logo was meant to attract the attention of common people and make them highly curious. Soon after the Italian company started marketing its clothing line under the brand A-Style, it was clear that the gimmick worked as expected! So, the logo was more of a win than a fail.
When a logo is great fun, that’s exactly what it looks like! At least that’s what the designers thought while creating this particular logo for the Mont-Sat Satellite.
It’s hard to tell if the design of the logo is intentional or not — but it’s evident that they wanted to give people a good laugh, and they fully succeeded! This is one of those logos that is obviously filled with implications in order to achieve popularity via a funny fail.
The Most Scandalous One
This is probably the most scandalous logo on this list. One look at it, and you’ll understand why the institution earned a pretty unflattering nickname from this logo alone!
The design of this logo is enough to damage the reputation of the institution. Thankfully, they changed it with something more appropriate after receiving huge backlash. We wonder, why were they not the wiser earlier on?
Innocent Turned Risky
This logo has a simple element that has gone horribly wrong. The company wanted to include a mouse in the design of the logo, which is appropriate enough. Unfortunately, they didn’t see this coming…
They didn’t understand that the design of the mouse can easily be interpreted as something different altogether! An innocent attempt can turn out dangerous, and this logo is the perfect example of such unfortunate circumstances.
Camping Is Exciting
It’s pretty clear that this company is extremely excited about the idea of going camping, and they trust that their customers feel the same way! Let’s be honest — setting up a tent can be difficult work, so we get the idea of being very excited at the prospect of having one *ahem* finished.
If there are any male customers nervous about the size of their own tents, we recommend not to look at the guy in this particular logo.
What Were They Thinking?
This company takes pride in calling itself a unique clothing line for independent women but that isn’t reflected in its logo design. Clearly, they wanted to make it classy and sassy but ended up creating something hilarious.
And it’s inappropriate, too! We have no idea why they couldn’t think of any other way to stylize the A, other than through the exposed backside of a cat. By the comments on the thread, it seems that Twitter users couldn’t comprehend that either.
Missing Out on the Point
When the designers of the Kudawara Pharmacy designed the logo, they probably missed out on a vital point — tweaking a letter in a design can be pretty disastrous. Extra caution is always needed in such cases.
That’s why this simple logo turned out to be an epic failure. Thankfully, the company corrected the mistake and kept the K simple, this time. One comment pointed out that the logo was changed recently, but without any risky experimentation.
The Expensive Fail
Logo design can cost a lot, especially when it’s something big and important like the Olympics, the cost can sum up to a whopping $800,000! When the logo faces widespread criticism, it makes it the most expensive logo design fail bigger than ever!
This 2012 London Olympic logo was created by designer Wolff Olins, and it clearly fails to deliver anything and it falls terribly short in creative imagination. The logo has been met with unsurprising hatred and ambivalence. It’s possibly the worst Olympic logo, to date!
Here comes another logo risky enough to traumatize any kid. The logo of the Kids Exchange can have a far-reaching impact that’s more than just being a funny design fail and that’s why it faced uproar from the public.
The logo was simple, colorful, and fun until the designers forgot about a simple yet vital rule of grammar… Two individual words should always come with a gap in between them. Honestly, any kid could have taught them that!
Students are not the only ones who troll their teachers. In fact, both parties can play dirty. While it’s obvious that younger minds may have an advantage over the older generations of teachers, it doesn’t mean that it’s a losing battle. You’d be surprised to learn that teachers sometimes do a much better job in trolling their students than vice-versa, especially if they have the right sense of humor. We’ve gathered these pictures, which prove that some teachers are simply too clever at trolling their students. Keep scrolling for trolling (see what we did there?)…
Studying in college can be a very different experience from that of high school. There are more requirements and higher expectations. It doesn’t mean, though, that there’s no room for a little humor — even when your professor tells you that the end is definitely coming.
Well, not right away, but it’s definitely coming… in approximately 14 billion years from now. This also proves that not all college professors are dry and tweedy academics that will bore you to death. Some do have a (sardonic) sense of humor.
Most teachers, if not all of them, hate when students text during class. Some teachers even request that their students stow away their phones in their bags or place them in a special box before class begins. Some, on the other hand, may resort to other — more radical — means to counter this problem.
Clever enough to think that your teacher wouldn’t notice you holding a phone between your legs? Think again! The teacher is watching. They have eyes on the back of their heads, you know.
Ho, Ho, Ho — Merry Christmas!
Math is hard. Or at least, we think it’s hard. All those equations, numbers, and graphs can be very intimidating. But, it doesn’t always have to be like this. The right teacher can turn any unpleasant math problem into a manageable — if not fun — experience.
Just look at that math teacher’s smug face, using Christmas time to make his lesson more accessible. We’re kidding, he’s obviously making his students suffer even more. There’s nothing merry about logarithms!
The Mighty English Language
The English language is full of homophones. These nasty little rascals are words that sound the same but differ in meaning and often in spelling as well. English teachers, or maybe even teachers in general, tend to take advantage of their properties when making fun of their students in class.
The really creative ones add entire drawings just to prove their point. Did you mean to say a cereal killer or a serial killer? You better bear in mind the difference between those words. Got it?
True to His Word
Teachers often make promises (or idle threats) that they won’t be able to fulfill or follow through with. Sometimes they just forget about them or are simply too reluctant to actually carry them out. Those that do manage to live up to their word, though, often do so stunningly.
But, there are no free meals. Usually, the students are expected to fulfill their end of the bargain as well. In this case, this teacher did what he promised and for the right reasons. He is… Teacher of the Year.
Not Really Useful
In the early versions of Microsoft Office, an office assistant that was nicknamed “Clippy” kept popping up whenever you were working on a document. In later versions, Microsoft finally got with the program and discontinued it. It doesn’t mean that we lost the overly-friendly digital paperclip forever, though.
This teacher used a stamp in the shape of his face to recreate something that resembles good old Clippy — and in the fashion of Clippy’s useless advice, he wrote a suggestion to troll his poor students. Looks like Clippy’s legacy lives on.
Did you know that Lady Gaga’s favorite subject in high school was chemistry? We’re just kidding, but this definitely looks like something she would really appreciate. We’re also pretty sure that the students liked it, too. This is definitely a refreshing way to look at the periodic table.
By the looks of it, things are really about to turn explosive. Is this what happens when you mix bad romance with a chemical romance? Ha! Get it?
Around 2012, the internet woke up to the YOLO hashtag — ‘You Only Live Once.’ Since then, it has become a hysterical trend. Want to eat that cake? YOLO! Want to buy that new pair of expensive shoes? YOLO! This little magical word has changed how we treat ourselves and the world around us.
The only problem is that it doesn’t really work this way. This student thought that they could just hand in a blank test because you know, YOLO. The teacher gave them a serious reality check.
Let’s be honest — if there’s something that both teachers and students equally hate, it’s homework. Students hate it because they need to spend extra time doing it and teachers hate it because, well, they have to spend extra time correcting it. There’s no way around it, it seems.
Some clever students, however, try to come up with all kinds of ways to get around it. One of the most common excuses is a homework assignment that simply went MIA. School sucks, man.
Know Your Meme
You often think of teachers as being old-fashioned and not in touch with today’s youth culture. This may be true, but certainly not in this case. Seems like this math teacher really knows his memes. We have a lot of respect for teachers who can actually think of equations that look like memes.
This is definitely a whole new level of ingenuity. We actually wonder what the original equation looked like. On second thought, maybe it’s a better idea to just focus on the meme.
I Am Watching You
Tests are a stressful experience for students and maybe even for teachers, as they often get disappointed to discover that their students did a lot worse than they expected. Also, cheating during tests causes a real headache for teachers who need to watch their class during a test.
Some teachers find unusual ways to get around this problem, perhaps a little too unusual. This teacher, for example, left the classroom during her students’ test, but still kept watch — from above. This gave us the creeps, honestly.
Love and Candies
Sometimes all a student needs is a nudge in the right direction to get the right answer. The truly great teachers even know how to do it without making their students feel stupid or embarrassed. Some, on the other hand, simply do it in a funny way.
This biology teacher seemed to have followed the same line of thought, offering the students an easy way to earn points. We just hope that the next question on the list wasn’t extremely hard because this would be cruel — too cruel.
It’s hard being a teacher — students bother you with questions, parents annoy you with phone calls, the principal has new demands, and the coffee in the staff room is disgusting.
So, what do you do? Disappear for a while, of course. This teacher took a cardboard box and a doll’s arms to create a mannequin version of himself. He sat the ‘dummy’ version in his office chair and ran for it. Free period, kids!
We are certain that many students would trade seats with Harry Potter and the rest of Hogwarts students. Learning about magic in an enchanted castle could be a really cool experience — if magic actually existed. In the meantime, however, we would settle for a Halloween costume in the likes of famous wizards from the Harry Potter series.
It seems like this teacher did just that. Dressed up as the poor wizard that had to carry Voldemort wrapped in a turban, he showed up to class like in this costume. He has our respect.
Took it to Heart
Surprisingly (or not so much), teachers actually care about the success of their students. Some may care a little too much, however. Oftentimes, it’s not because they are measured by it (even though in some cases they actually are), but because they sincerely care about the future of their students.
This college professor brought a coffin to the lecture hall just to prove that point. Following the failure of his class on the exam, it seems like he just couldn’t bear it. He really took it to heart, didn’t he?
Don’t Be Late
There’s a pretty good reason why the “deadline” has the word “dead” in it — or at least we think that there’s a connection. If you’re late in submitting your assignment, you will likely end up in trouble or worse. In other cases, such as this one, you will be publicly humiliated in front of the whole class.
Just imagine walking in with your late assignment in your hand and having to throw it in the trash can. That’s harsh. Next time just pull an all-nighter.
First of All
There are some teachers with whom you really don’t want to mess. If you, however, choose to mess with them, be prepared to deal with the consequences. They are likely to bring you down really quickly — and in style. This student thought he could simply get away with asking for “one” extra point to get his grade up. He asked the wrong teacher.
Turns out that one point actually comes out to 11, if you do the math correctly. Besides, since when do teachers do favors? Hard work and all that is kind of the point, no?
We really don’t know what this teacher has against Christopher Walken. We personally think that he’s a great actor. But we have to admit, this is really witty. Maybe he should have simply put a sign that reads, “Quiet on the set” next to Mr. Walken’s face — if he doesn’t want to be interrupted, that is.
In any case, we believe it’s a smart idea to schedule an appointment beforehand. After all, who would want to meet Walken in a dark alley? Almost as scary as meeting Anthony Hopkins!
Knights of Yore
History classes are usually boring. What normally happens is that your teacher walks in and starts lecturing about events that took place hundreds of years ago. All you have to do is just sit and write down everything they tell you — names, places, dates, outcomes.
Basically, it’s all about who did what to whom and when. Some teachers actually find better ways of doing that. This teacher dressed up as a knight. He put actual armor on and everything! Onward, our noble steed!
Teenagers are annoying, that’s a fact. They are even more annoying when they are kept in a classroom for eight hours a day. But, who has to take it? The teacher, of course. So, don’t be shocked if they sometimes lose it and resort to sarcastic reactions when students are misbehaving.
Rolling your eyes in an argument may not be a sign of maturity. We believe that this is what triggered the teacher’s response.
There are no free meals. If you want something, you have to work hard for it. This is especially true in high school. Your teacher isn’t likely to hand you a good grade just because you asked nicely or, in this case, drew your desired grade with dots that need to be connected.
But, at least this friendly banter has a lot of humor to it. You say a hundred, she says zero — or close to it. Next time just study harder, kid. This isn’t rocket science, after all.
Teachers are touchy about attendance. If you don’t show your face in class regularly, they’ll notice and probably call your parents. If they are a little wittier, they’ll put a picture of you in the form of a missing person and make fun of you.
This is what happened to this student who kept skipping Spanish class. We seriously hope that her teacher didn’t alert the police or started organizing a search party. That would have been too much, right? Our lesson — don’t skip class!
Biology classes are weird. Chances are that you will dissect frogs, examine germs under a microscope, and deal with other unpleasant biological stuff. Things do get weird in biology class. Sometimes, a little too weird.
Bringing a skeleton (not a real one!) to class sounds harmless if you’re studying anatomy, but putting it in a student’s seat and placing its legs on the table in an upright position is a little too much. Leaving it like that for the entire school is a whole new level of weird.
How do you know that exam season is in the air? It’s very simple — just look at your professor’s desktop and you’ll know that they are preparing for the worst time of their lives… again. It’s almost like the Hunger Games. Students (and professors, so it seems) will do anything to get through this “season” alive.
So, this professor seemingly did the smartest thing they could think of. Show your students that you will not be taken by surprise, whatever they throw at you.
It seems like math is not the only subject that can get festive during Christmas (just see what we wrote about it earlier). Chemistry gets its fair share in this funfest, too. Is there a better way to teach chemistry on Christmas other than combining the two into one?
Yes, this teacher trolled his students by putting up a Christmas tree with flasks filled with all kinds of liquids in different colors. We seriously hope none of them contained Chemical X. You know, Powerpuff Girls and all that.
Getting into medical school may perhaps be the hardest thing you’ll ever do in your life (apart from getting into law school, of course). You need to go through a rigorous selection process, which includes a battery of tests and personal interviews.
When you’re finally in, you have years and years of but-busting studies ahead of you. But, what do you actually learn there? Apparently, when treating a soft tissue injury you first need to kiss it. That’s why you need an SAT score of 1600. Good luck!
Calculus has been making students miserable since 1847 (we’re not really sure about the year, though). Even after the introduction of pocket calculators, calculus remained a problem for generations of students. Math teachers, who are also quite fond of calculators (just ask them), began reporting calculator thefts.
While there are obvious reasons as to why students would want to steal those (scientific calculators are expensive), we don’t think it’s a good idea. That’s why we support this math teacher’s unusual, but funny solution. Can we borrow yours, though?
Students love leaving random messages and drawings on their exam forms. Sometimes they hope their cute little drawings will impress their teacher so much so that they’ll give them a higher grade (this rarely works). Sometimes, it’s the other way around.
This poor student managed to somehow tear a hole in the paper in such a way that made it look like a bird’s beak. The teacher took it from there and accepted the challenge. As amateurish as this drawing may be, we still find it funny.
Just Another Day in the Lab
Imagine that it’s a hot summer’s day and the windows in your school lab are open. Suddenly, some annoying bug flies in and refuses to leave despite all your best attempts to remove it. Would you consider burning it as your only reasonable option of dealing with it?
We assume that the answer is no. This teacher, however, had other ideas in mind. He just burned the poor thing — he blew it with a torch, to be more exact. We hope this won’t leave a mark on the ceiling.
No, we don’t think that the person in the picture is your art teacher. He seems more like the mechanical engineer type — although we have to admit that anything involving straight lines or grid sections gives us the chills.
In any case, it seems like this teacher used his free period to demonstrate some skills, real skills. He drew a pretty good sketch of Napoleon I in his coronation costume, sitting on the imperial throne. We would like to see more chalk drawings like this.
Forgot My Pen
As students, we sometimes forget to bring our writing instruments with us. This may be especially problematic on a day that you have a test, unless you can spurt ink from your fingertips. Since this isn’t the case for most of us (or all of us!), you may be forced to ask for a pen or a pencil from your fellow classmate or even from your teacher.
In case you are out of luck and you choose the latter, you may find yourself using a quill. Do you need a piece of parchment paper, too?
Tie Your Shoelaces
We get it — history is boring. In fact, it’s so boring that you can easily doze off and fall asleep right in front of your teacher. And while you are enjoying your beauty sleep, you may find yourself being trolled by your fellow students or even your own teacher. Unusual as it may sound, this is nonetheless true.
The teacher decided to pull an age-old prank on his sleeping student. What could be a better idea than tying up his shoelaces? We hope he didn’t wake up during the process.
Last One Standing
School can be a real battleground — warring student cliques, crazy teachers, terrible cafeteria food, and boring school clubs are only a few of the issues that the average student may find themselves dealing with. This teacher decided that it might be a good idea to record how many students got hurt while doing some sort of lab test.
While this is quite funny (we have to admit), it’s also a little disturbing. Also, we hope that the school didn’t hire Dr. Frankenstein by accident.
Unfortunately, threats from students are not uncommon these days. Students might resort to extreme measures just to get what they want. In this case, however, we can hardly call it a threat since the teacher went along with it.
By drawing a “threatening” picture of an armed ninja, the student explicitly stated that any grade lower than C will not be tolerated. Surprisingly, the next time the student took a test, they left no unusual surprises. The “intimated” teacher was, however, quite disappointed to find that there were no ninjas.
Defend the Fort!
This might be by far the weirdest picture we’ve ever seen in this category. It appears that this teacher erected a wall, made entirely of empty water bottles. We found no explanation as to the reasons behind this mysterious labor.
Chances are, however, that they were trying to protect themselves from incoming projectiles, which included paper balls or paper planes. We wonder how many bottles of water were used in the construction of this wall and how long it took them to complete it.
High School Sweethearts
In high school, it’s not uncommon for students to get romantically involved with each other — and with that comes major PDA (public displays of affection). Sometimes, this can be a little too much.
Everyone knows at least one couple that just can’t keep their hands off each other, even during school breaks. We get it, you are young and you are in love. But, why do the rest of us have to witness it? Besides, you’re probably going to break up anyway!
We absolutely adore teachers with a great sense of humor. Mr. Dennert clearly took it to a whole new level when he dressed up as Princesses Leia from Star Wars for his employee card photo. This left us wondering, though, if he also modified his car to look like a spaceship.
This also begs the question as to whether or not he’s walking around with a lightsaber in his pocket. In any case, we support Mr. Dennert in his struggle to defeat the empire when he’s not busy teaching.
No Name No Grade
Forgetting to put your name at the top of the test form can be a serious problem. It often happens because you’re so stressed and just want to get it over with, that you just skip the part where you need to put your name.
You spend two periods writing up everything and then submitting it, only to find out that you worked for nothing. What’s worse is that the teachers are shaming you now, too! Can you dance to that tune? “Put ya name on it…”
Sometimes it’s easy to forget, but teachers also get their pictures taken for the yearbook. While students invest countless hours into thinking about what they’ll wear or how they should smile, teachers just choose the same smile and clothes as they did last year — well, maybe not all of them.
These two clearly figured out a way to improve their appearance, and all it took is a little coordination. Just look at them, exchanging looks likes mischievous schoolboys. They will certainly be remembered by their students.
I Want My Pencils Back
Calculators are not the only items that students tend to borrow from teachers and never return — the same goes for pens and pencils. Students just think it’s ok to take a pen or a pencil from their teacher and keep it to all themselves ’till they graduate.
To tackle this problem, a different kind of approach is needed. This teacher seemingly found the perfect solution. Want to borrow this pencil? Sure, but let’s see how long you’ll want to keep it.
You’re a Goner
Normally, you wouldn’t expect your professor to know how to airdrop. We often think of professors as just being too old to know how to use new technology. But in this case, when this student had to leave class in the middle of the lecture, her professor surprised her with this message.
But not only did he know how to airdrop, but they also knew how to select the right meme for the occasion. We applaud teachers like this!
Not a Joke
You would probably think that college professors wouldn’t waste their time trolling students unless they have a great sense of humor. It seems like this college professor just wanted to greet his first-year students in a funny way.
You know, make sure they understand that college isn’t like high school. What better way to do it if not by trolling them on their exam? In case you didn’t know, ethos, pathos, and logos are Greek terms used to describe the proper way of constructing an argument.
Trigonometry With Bill Cosby
Math is a scary subject, and it is even scarier in college. If you thought that the math they taught you in high school was hard, wait until you see what’s going on in college. Things get a lot more complicated and a lot less intuitive.
But, if you are a great teacher then surely you’d find a way to make the subject a bit more pleasant. Also, we had no idea that Mr. Cosby is a walking mathematical theorem. We bet there are some things that you learn only when you get to college.
You Shall Not Pass!
In the first movie of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, Gandolf is forced to cover the retreat of his comrades by facing the Balrog Demon. When he does that, he shouts “you shall not pass!” to the demon.
From that moment on, this has become a catchphrase that found its way into many memes as well. Looks like this teacher even made a stamp for it. Perhaps he has had many cases like that before.
Yes, even teachers get sick sometimes. While this may be a real boon to students (unless you are the teacher’s pet), some teachers may feel bad about it since they are so committed to their job.
It seems that in this case, the teacher took it to heart that they couldn’t teach the class. We think it’s a funny way to keep in touch with your students even when you are sick. Frankly, we would have wanted a teacher like that too.
List of Impossible Tasks
You thought that your homework was hard? Just look at this teacher’s list of impossible tasks. We really don’t know what was the occasion, but to us, it seems like they weren’t exactly in the mood and decided to give their students some of the weirdest homework assignments that we have ever seen.
We’re joking of course, as was this teacher. But, you have to admit, this is ingenious. Even though, we do hope that you could end world hunger by next Monday.
Far Over the Misty Mountains
We absolutely adore teachers who are Tolkien fans. And how can you not? This is just perfect! This also makes this whole crossing-the-corridor-during-classes experience a lot more pleasant (and funny!).
This journey that this student has embarked on must have been a dangerous one if she needed the aid of Gandalf the White. We hope they manage to destroy the ring and stop Sauron because if not, all of Middle Earth will be covered in darkness.
Wall of Shame
If you are a teacher, you probably know how annoying it is to get an assignment without a name on it. What are you supposed to do? Just guess who wrote it and hope you are right? It seems like they found a unique way to deal with this problem in this school.
They made all those students who made mistakes such as this take a photo with a sign depicting their crimes. We wonder if this is a suitable replacement for detention.
Three’s a Crowd
All it takes sometimes is just a little team effort and a great sense of humor to make some of the most hilarious pictures we’ve ever seen. Looks like this teacher got tired of the same old and boring yearbooks in which teachers always look the same.
We have to admit that this is a bit unusual though. Why would you want to mimic being smothered to death by a snake? There is a chance that he is the drama teacher, which might explain it though.
For the Republic!
Of all teachers, science teachers sometimes tend to be the most eccentric. This would also explain this picture. We actually laughed quite hard when we saw this. Science teachers are just geeks that grew older and became teachers themselves.
So, there is no wonder that they still kept some of their old habits. In this case, this science teacher just couldn’t help it and had to show everyone that they were a Star Wars fan.
You know how teachers tell you that you should always ask questions during class? And that the only stupid question is a question you didn’t ask? Well, it seems like this was just one question too far.
The truth, as it turns out, is a lot uglier than we thought. They just shouldn’t have asked. Of course, we are completely joking here. But, you have to admit, this is ingenious. What’s even better is that the teacher didn’t even have to do anything. It was the student who asked.
Teachers who absolutely adore what they teach are the best. Usually, this means that your classes are going to be extremely interesting and interactive. This can also be extended into the yearbook as well — apparently.
This history teacher dressed up like a Union soldier and even made sure that his photograph would be in black and white. We think he should get a congressional medal for this.
Rick Astley’s Fan
We are not sure what really happened here. We thought that Rick Astley’s songs were no longer popular in this decade, but, it seems like he is making a comeback. In any case, one thing is certain, this teacher is clearly a fan of Mr. Astley.
We always found Rick’s songs to be a little too cheesy. But hey, if you actually get extra credit for marking the right answer (hint: the answer is ‘H’), we might as well listen to a few of his songs.
A lot has been said and written about teacher-parents relations. Sometimes they can be really great and sometimes they are just terrible. Usually, this happens when the parents blame it on the teacher — whenever they just refuse to admit the truth about their naughty children.
It seems like this teacher found a way to make sure to get off on the right foot with the parents. And what’s a better way of doing it than by accepting bribes from the students?
Writing lab reports can be a real nuisance unless your teacher has a great sense of humor. However, it seems like that in this case the student forgot to finish the joke they were writing about the neutron who walked into a bar.
So, the teacher helped them finish it. Did you get it? A neutron has a neutral charge, while a proton has a positive charge. Also, the word charge has a double meaning: an electric charge and to charge money. We laughed a little.
No doubt that this is a unique way to teach this complex subject. There is a big difference between just showing your students drawings of various organs from the boring anatomy book, and doing what this teacher did.
It is odd, no doubt, but it is also ingenious (in our opinion). What’s a better way of learning about the human body if not by showing it from up close? We meant the inside of the human body of course.
This isn’t the first time we see something like this: students or teachers cooperating to create a unique and memorable yearbook photo. This, however, is unlike anything we have seen before.
We really think it’s incredible how they’ve managed to incorporate this cool underwater theme into their section of the yearbook. Maybe the next thing they should do is to rename their high school to “Underwater High.” Actually, how about “High Seas High”? We like the way it sounds.
Sometimes a nice little drawing can be the difference between “pass” or “fail” on a test. We honestly believe that the only reason why this teacher decided to give extra bonus points is that this dolphin is probably more intelligent than the student who took this test.
As Douglas Adams once said: “Man has always assumed that he is more intelligent than dolphins because he has achieved so much. But, conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons.”
Honesty is something that we really value in people and especially in teachers. We think that teachers should always be honest with their students and vice versa. In this case, it looks like this teacher was just a little too honest with their student.
But, you can hardly blame them. They’ve probably been teaching for decades and their tired old eyes just can’t read that nonsense anymore. So, no wonder they just gave in and asked them how much they wanted to get on their assignment instead.
May the Force
It’s always great when your physics teacher is a geek who is obsessed with Star Wars. In this case, not only did this teacher know how to perfectly draw the Millennium Falcon and the droid R2-D2, but they also added a small hint.
They alluded to Newton’s second law of motion which states that F (Force) = m (mass) multiplied by a (acceleration). This totally blew our minds!
Hammers and Nails
We said that honest teachers are the best. Not only was this teacher honest, but they were also hilarious. Their student did so well on this assignment and they really wanted to show them how happy they were with their success.
Unfortunately, since this literature teacher can’t draw they just confessed to them that if they could, they would add a drawing which is a literal depiction of the phrase “nailed it”. We really appreciated the honesty though.
I See You
Students will do anything if they are desperate during a test. Teachers, on the other hand, will do anything they can to stop their students from cheating. Some, like this one, will go to great lengths (or heights) to ensure that no student dares to find a way to cheat on their test.
Perched like a bird on a high tree, this teacher found himself a great vantage point from which he can observe the entire classroom.
We just love it when people who think they can play an instrument try to show off. They usually fail miserably upon their first attempt. It seems like this teacher shares the same sentiment.
This music teacher hung this sign on the door to the room where they keep the school piano. It seems that this was their way of ensuring that wannabe music prodigies wouldn’t try to show off their skills while hammering the piano keys.
I Dare You
Thinking outside the box is exactly what this teacher did. Instead of trying to plead or threaten their noisy students, they just came up with the best possible way to silence the boisterous teenagers.
Back when Game of Thrones was a big hit and almost everyone was watching it, this teacher used the ultimate threat. Revealing which character is going to die next before the students got the chance to watch the next episode is just brilliant. This also proves that you should always read the books first.
Who said that science teachers don’t have a sense of humor? As it appears, they do — and it’s a great one too! What a better way to learn about the major bones in your body if not by using this iconic reference from the Titanic?
This of course alludes to the famous scene from the movie featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Can you name all of these bones? We can!
Remember the Alamo
We just love historical references, especially when it’s your history teacher who wants to make sure that you remember some important detail for your upcoming test. So, in case you skipped this class in high school, we are here to help.
The Battle of the Alamo took place in 1836, between Mexican forces and the Texans (Texas was an independent republic back then). After suffering a colossal defeat, it took the Texans a few weeks to regroup and strike back. This led to the Battle of San Jacinto after which the Mexicans were driven out of Texas.
What Is the Right Answer?
Yes, even teachers crack up sometimes. Grading papers, preparing lesson plans, and talking to parents all the time is just hard. Sometimes they just can’t take it anymore. So, no wonder this teacher just lost it entirely when he was composing questions for this test very late at night.
The only thing this teacher wanted was to finally go to bed. But no, he had to finish preparing this exam paper. We would have probably done the same if we were him. Who has the energy to write so many questions anyway?
Some teachers who can’t show up for a class for some reason (either because they are really sick or because they just had enough of their students and need a little break from them) often need to make sure someone else can teach instead.
We wonder, however, what subject was this teacher responsible for anyway? Botany? If so, this is a reasonable way of showing their students that class is canceled. Unless Mr. Copse volunteers to teach them.
To be honest, we aren’t really sure who did this to whom. This doesn’t look like something that teachers would do to students, unless these teachers have a great sense of humor.
In any case, we really felt like this should be included in our list nonetheless. You also have to admit that whoever did it is a genius. We wonder if ROFL Elementary School is somewhere nearby too.
The Truth about School Work
Well, we hate to break it to you, but this is what teachers actually think about the papers you write — well, maybe not all of them. This one, however, wasn’t afraid of showing what they really think about your paperwork though.
Maybe you should have put some more effort into those papers. You know, make sure that all the facts are correct before writing them down. Our advice: take your school work seriously so we can avoid showing you pictures like this one.
We’ve already seen teachers dressed up in weird costumes just to troll their students, so here’s another cool one. This teacher dressed up as Kakashi Hatake from the Japanese manga anime series Naruto.
For those of you who are not familiar with it, Naruto follows the story of Naruto Uzumaki, a young ninja who wants recognition from his surrounding environment and dreams of becoming the head of his village. This begs the question as to whether or not this teacher can do some cool ninja tricks, too.
So, you’re studying towards your exam when you suddenly get an email that contains a link to the exam answers from your professor. What do you do? You click on it, obviously! Too bad you can’t always get what you want. Your professor was just pulling your leg.
You want the exam answers? In your dreams! What you get instead is Rick Astley singing, “Never Gonna Give You Up” — better known as Rickroll! Now, what were you even doing checking your e-mail while studying for your finals? Go and hit those books!
Let’s Play a Game
The branch of psychology that deals with decision-making is called behavioral game theory (or something like that). It’s all fine and well to be studying about it in class, until you get dragged into it against your will. This professor used the opportunity to troll his students by using the same theories they learned about in class.
Luckily, this isn’t the prisoner dilemma here, but your choices still have consequences. Also, you will have to work with a bunch of random strangers who happen to be your classmates — the clock is ticking.
Follow the Instructions
How many of us actually read the instructions all the way to the end? Apparently, very few of us actually do it. Teachers always insist that you read through all of the instructions, and for a good reason. When students repeatedly fail to do so, some teachers come up with unique ways of teaching them a good lesson.
This “three-minute test” was designed for this purpose exactly. You were only supposed to read through the instructions and put your name at the top right corner.
Objects in the Mirror
Syllabi are only good for one thing — knowing what assignments are due when and when, or if there’s a final exam in the course you are taking. That’s how students normally treat syllabi. To make them take things more seriously, this college professor uploaded this picture to the course website.
You can’t say they didn’t warn you. We had a mental image of assignments chasing after you in Mad Max-style cars. Watch out! They have flamethrowers, too! You better submit that mid-term paper.
