This is a question Awesome teachers

Teachers have been getting a right kicking recently and it's not fair. So, let's hear it for the teachers who've inspired you, made you laugh, or helped you to make massive explosions in the chemistry lab. (Thanks to Godwin's Lawyer for the suggestion)

The best stories will come from Chemistry lessons...
One day, we'd had the Bunsen burners out and, of course, stuff was getting set on fire. Spills, biros, paper towels, more paper towels, even more paper towels...

One of the lads had set a few too many off and was left with a wodge of burning paper. As the chemistry teacher was on his way over, he decided that the best place for this fireball was the drawer of the lab table and shoved it in.

Of course, this didn't stop the smoke or smell of burning, so the teacher went straight to the drawer and opened it. Which flared the burning paper right up. The lad in question described the teacher's expression as "like he had just seen fire for the first time."

Still, it caused enough of a distraction that no one noticed that our table had thrown about half a kilo of plasticine at the ceiling so hard it had stuck.

"like he had just seen fire for the first time."
this made me giggle.

Also, points for telling a story that wouldn't be out of place as a sketch from Monkey Dust. All this talk of 'awesome teachers' and 'learning stuff in school' was starting to make me think my school was abnormally shit.

12 years on...
And that's still the line that get's me, too.

It's even funnier when you know we were the second set from the top and there were three tiers below us. God knows what that was like.

I played the scene in my mind
and cracked up imagining the poor guy. *opens drawer* "Oh shit!" *closes drawer*
