Me and a few friends were sitting on some stairs, not bothering to go to class, since it was a snow day and there were about 20 out of 1000 kids at the school. While we are sitting, our vice principal comes up to us and asks why we are there. I told her it was because loitering was fun. She got pretty bad at my "unrealistic" response, and sent us off to an empty computer lab.

My calculus BC class in 10th grade

Student 1: Heh, L'Hospital's (pronounced Lopietal) rule looks like it should be pronounced as L Hospital's rule...
Student 2: If you say L Hospital one more time I'll be forced to shank you!

---Later---

Student 1: Couldn't you just use L Hospital's rule... *pauses* EEP! *Hides under desk*

In english class

Teacher: Would you believe me if I said I saw something come out of the sky, land, and open up, with short creatures walking out of it?
Student: Yes.
Teacher: What? Why?
Student: I saw it too. It was an airplane transporting midgets!

One time my friend and I were having an argument about basketball shots, we were completely misunderstanding eachother, but either way, in order to prove the point that a shot being "tricky" and it being "in" or "good" are independent variables, so in the most nerdy way possible I set up a configuration space x=0,1 out or in, y = 0 , 1 untricky, tricky, whereupon she replies "I don't get it! If this is a graph then where is the basket?" She actually is very smart, just inclined to misunderstand nerdy things. (she wanted to have the argument in front of the debate/math teacher)

Somebody in my class got a letter from some kind of cult once. she read it out loud to the class: "We have revieved notice from one of our members that you may be interested in joining our group. Unfortunally, our researchers looked at your Facebook profile and were alarmed to see a non-Christian religion listed: 'The church of ---- Murray.' Normally this would disqualify you, but we may be able to pull some strings and write it off as a 'childish whim.' Contact us at this number to convert, and join us in enlightenment."

That is wrong in so many ways. Especially the one of Mr. Murray being our PHYSICS TEACHER! (This was also during his class. He found it amusing.)

A few days ago, in English. Speaking about MacBeth (I'm not going to look up the line, but it involved the vulnerability of small, naked babies.)

Teacher: (passionately) And what's more vulnerable than a naked baby?
Me: Two naked babies.

Same day, talking about one of our pregnant teachers who just left to deliver.

Teacher: Has Ms. Eldridge had her baby yet?
Me: Nopexorz. Baby pending.

We were doing reversible reactions in chemistry and this girl turned round and said 'that's like water into ice right?'
I had to stop myself from laughing out loud.

Another girl in my art class turned round to me once and said 'hey, how do you make yellow?'
I suggested maybe taking some out of the pot of yellow paint...

I can't remember if I posted this before or not, but can't be bothered checking.

This is not so much funny as cool, and not a quote but a story, but I think it counts.

Now, my high school was great in many ways, we had an amazing principal, a strong student government, and an overall air of insanity. Once upon an assembly, (a holiday assembly, either valentines day or winter) an accapella group was getting ready to do their piece. Meanwhile up in the bleachers, two students were planning, when the song started, these two students opened their cell phones and waved them around in the manner of concert-goers. It caught on, within seconds, the entire gym was awash in the blue-green glow of LCD screens. I have never been more proud of my fellow students than at that moment. of course, by the end of the song, it was over, and since there were no more songs to be sung, it didn't happen again, but I will treasure that memory.

I wish I could say I had something to do with the event, but I can't.

Today this happened in math:
Spoiler:
Teacher: You mean "I don't know anything"
Student: I don't get it
Teacher: That's a double negative. You can't have them in English. There are languages, like Spanish, where you can. Not English.
Me (shouting): No, that's not right!
I don't find it funny, but everyone laughed.

Note that he was STILL right as the "no" and "that's not right" are two different sentences forming a compound sentence. His not being precise as hell (he could've said "you can't have a double negative in a not-compound (no idea what the word for this is) sentence) does not mean he was wrong.

Unless you DID mean he was right, in which case I'm sorry.

I have a fun one from yesterday. The guy involved is still angry with me because of it, but I'm too proud of the comment to feel bad.

It was raining, and we were walking to our lesson, just about to go out into the pouring down-ness.

Me: *Makes vague sound of distress as we're about to go out into the rain*
Him: *Looks at me as I pull my hood up* .. Why are you complaining? You're female. *Grins* Girls spend most of their lives wet.
Me: *Glances to him, arches eyebrow* Not the ones that hang around with you.
Him: ... *Blank stare* ..... *Mumbles* ... Cold.

He started it.

Just had to register to post these:

Names have been changed.

--Discussing a short story we had to write--

Me: What are you going to name the ant?
Megan: I'm thinking Brent.
Me: Oh, I see. Because it's small, insignificant, and people would like to stomp it.
Megan: No, but he's going to be brave and a hero.
Me: Oh, yes. I do see the conflict there.

Keep in mind that the guy we were talking about (Brent) was sitting between the two of us.

--Playing a trivia game--

SS Teacher: There is a strait on the tip of South America named after a famous explorer. Name that explorer.
Noah: Indiana Jones!

He was 100% serious. (The answer was Magellan, given by the one guy in the class the rest of us were playing against. He won.)

--All the following are taken out of context to show you how off-track we get--

Shelly: Why are you molesting my hand?
--
Me: She followed Shelly into the bathroom and then tried to take off her pants. That's like, one step away from rape.
--
Me: Did you just stab me in the face with the key to an alternate dimension?
--
Nate: But what if, like, up in space NASA's dishwasher accidentally fell out the window? Would it crash into earth and make a huge crater?
--
Me: OKAY! If Jonny's appendix burst in space, would you rather let him die or perform freaking rocket surgery?

A few more from the memory banks...

Names may or may not have been changed. You have no way of knowing

Me: No, YOUR guts are going to be all over the walls...Hi, Ms. Lambert.
---
Megan: We were going to throw grapefruits at them, but then they started stripping.
---
Nicole: You just dropped Scout on his face. What a great mother YOU are.
---
Me: See, at that table, they wouldn't just steal my food, they'd try to kill me...Hi, Mr. James. She (Elizabeth) would totally slap me right now if you weren't here.
Elizabeth: She's not lying.
---
Emily: Apple anyone?
(I guess this is only funny in context/you had to be there...)
---
Me: It's like applesauce with a higher viscousity!
---
Me: It's like running through angry pudding!

That's all for now.

Edit: As you can see, I have horrible timing....

This one kept our Health class and teacher laughing for a good bit.

Teacher: Student A, what was that word you stuttered on?
Student A: *mutters* Menstruation.
Teacher: And what does that mean?
Student A: *more embarrassed* Period.

Me and a friend were trying to replicate the double-slit light experiment with an index card*, after a discussion on quantum mechanics- this wasn't part of class, it was during a break. A kid walks by:
Kid: What are you doing?
Me: Quantum Mechanics!
Kid: ...I don't get it.
Me and friend, at the same time: Neither do we!

(*I figured it out later, at home. Pretty cool.)

Apology accepted.

About a week ago, in that same class, A student said:
S: Hey, Mr. Lawrence, there's a sexual reference in question 15!
Mr. L. (quickly realizing that the answer was 69, and extremely annoyed): Well, Maybe within your weird sexual preferences, which most of us normal people [i]will not[i] understand, there is one.
S: ...
Mr. L: I'm sorry
S: It's okay.
Mr. L: So I WAS right, then?

And today in English:
Racist Student: Once you're black, you can't go back.
Teacher: What about Michael Jackson? Also, stand up.
RS: *Stands up*
T: Turn 90 degrees left, walk three steps forward, turn 90 degrees left, walk 7 steps forward, open the door, walk 3 steps forward, turn 180 degrees, close the door, and walk backwards until you hit something.
RS: Do I turn 180 degrees left or right?
T: Right. You know what, after you all of that, write a 1024 word essay on why you are an idiot. 1024 exactly. And it has to make sense if I cut it into two 512 word halves and read them independently.

Well, here are some student quotes:

French class
Male Student: Hanson, I'm thinking, senior year, I'm gonna take down your poster in the display case and stand there all day.
Hanson: And what? Stand there and talk? "Bonjour!" Saluuuuuut!" Like that?
Student: I was thinking, actually, just making weird faces while half naked.

Student: I don't care if you dyed [your hair]; you're foxy. Were you hot when you were younger?

Student: [reading her story] ... They haul ass up the Eiffel Tower.

Speech
Student A: Is that Jesus on your paper?
Student B: No, it's Hosbond with a Luigi hat.
Student C: So, close.

Brit Lit
Student: [referring to Claudius and Hamlet Sr] Best friends forever!
Hucke: I'm thinking no.

... and then there's the time I was told that I'd make a good porno writer. My friends are weird.

We were in band once, and the trumpets, who sit in front of us, were really sucking at a particularly difficult part. The band director eventually said, "Trumpets, if I made you play that 50 times, you'd be dead!" Immediately after, my friend sitting next to me said "GOOD" really loud. I thought it was loud, but apparently only I and two others near us heard it. We burst out in laughter.

"Is Queensland bigger than Tasmania?"

She thought this was a completely legitimate question and had no idea why the rest of the class was laughing so hard.

(For those not up to scratch on their Australian geography, Queensland is about 30-40 times bigger than Tasmania.)
