    My PE teacher told me if I ate Spinach and other green vegetables for lunch I would be strong and pass PE.
    I failed PE, I still can't climb that stupid rope, and you don't want to know what happens when I eat cabbage!!!!

    I remember in year 10 I got ill and had to go home early. Some kind of situation happened and my English teacher who happens to be a deputy head of the school had to come over and she said to me, "You'd do anything to get out of one of my English lessons". She then laughed and told another high ranked teacher that I actually work really hard and that I got one of the higher marks in my literature coursework. (she knows that I'm aiming for A/A*) The next day she gives out the results and tells me that I got a B and maybe we can do something at the end of the year to improve it. That never happened and to top it all off when I did the creative writing English language coursework in year 11 I found out that I actually got a C and she never even put a B on the piece of paper. :'(

    R.I.P. my English grade, plez give me an A on Thursday.

    "You will only be sat in the seating plan until I learn all you names"

    Not necessarily a fib but we stayed in the seating plan all year because she never learnt anyone's name

    I'm ashamed to admit this ... but I told a class that before he was a philosopher/economist Karl Marx used to be goalkeeper for Borussia Dortmund.

    My year 6 teacher (the school's IT technician too) told us he knew how to use a computer... he hadn't got a clue and all of us 11 year olds could do better than him.

    Well even from Promary school we all got told that almost certain death was gaurateed if we rocked back on our chairs, every teacher knew one child who cracked their head open etc,
    Also later on in Year 9 when starting woodwork there was always one guy our teacher explained that got their 80's style hair caught in the woodwork drill, this guy must of had a tiny head because no way a human could get their head in that gap!
    However these fibs and trucks worked and no one died in all my school time! As predicted
