COMEDY SKETCH: Teachers Meeting

This hilarious video (scroll down) from sketch comedy troupe¬†WKUK, shows how teachers probably come up with the rules that all students have to go by, whether they’re fair or not and whether they make sense or not.


¬†The sketch starts with the leader of the meeting (presumably the head mistress) stating that their job is babysitting, whilst another teacher decides that starting school at 8am will really p*ss off the kids so they agree to do that. They choose the subjects the children should be learning, even though no one really takes gym seriously as a subject. A geography and his teacher argue over who’s subject is more important so it’s decided to combine the two and call them ‘social studies’.


A teacher comes up with the idea of detention and a school report, as another way to p*ss off the kids and they all agree. The teachers come up with a grading system that they realise doesn’t make any sense, but they go along with it anyway. The final rule is ‘none of us will ever admit when we’re wrong’.
