I heart stupidity. When you see it, post it here. I'll start.
Some of you know that I've do some teaching of first year sociology students in university. I really enjoy it, and love my students, but -GAWD- grading their work is a nightmare.
Through the course of a year, they have to write short essays on a range of topics ---feminism, Karl Marx, education, Freud, crime, etc. I feel kinda guilty laughing at these because of course they are writing under extreme pressure, but holy bobo I find them funny! Every so often, they write something so frickin' hysterical that it makes me gag laughing. These fleeting gems, I collect. Thought y'all might get a kick out of some of them.
Here we go. (nb, all typos and grammar boo boos are theirs from here on, not mine)
"Education is not really as old as many people think. It all came about in
the 1960s when the Russians were more advanced with outerspace."
"There is no evidence of women in society until the late 1990s"
"Freud is the classic theory of gender he believes the boy has the penis the girl has the clitoris simple as that"
"Freud said that a boy who plays too many dolls might be a p_ssy in later life"
"Feminists think women are the lowest of the low"
"Education is bias it only works for children who come from families where the parents are rich white and male"
"Hitlar believed in the destroying the Jews, however, his dictation only lasted until he was alive, after it was forgotten."
"Weber saw society from his eyes"
"someone from the low class is no good to us. we don't see them as nonsuccessful. That is because of sociology"
"Max Weber is a known and accredited sociologist"
"All around us in our society it is, said to be all around us these 'bureacracy' for example God is higher than Jeesus. The boss."
Proofreading is important.
I've been reading job applications. One guy, when listing his referees, obviously meant to describe one of them as 'Assistant Store Manager'. Problem one: he decided to abbreviate it. Problem two: proofreading failure. Result?
'Ass Sore Manager'
