    It fell down the side of my locker and now it's stuck in so-and so's but they're not here
    I left my folder on the bus
    Oops I've got my Chemistry/biology/physics book instead of my physics/chemistry/biology one in school with me today (They were exactly the same colour and size :p:)
    Oh and the classic "What...you haven't given mine back! But I definitely handed it in...the one in blue biro with my name writen in purple felt tip at the top...! It was handwritten...*make tears well up in eyes*...oh and it was a whole essay, too. I guess I'll have to do it again...I've got my plan so I guess I can do it...when would you like me to do it by?"

    This NEVER fails for me, especially when the teacher goes through the register asking for homework....they rarely come back to you and if they do, a smug or witty joke usually gets you an extension til tomorrow

    Best: We had homework? (Used by a few of my classes at secondary, as a whole and as individuals)
    Overused: Printer broke/no ink/exploded on file sent
    Funniest: We got drunk instead and ended up talking to a bin bags. (Me and my friends in a science class)

    Actually the BEST excuse was for a presentation on protons, electrons etc. We said we had an AWESOME presentation, really built the thing up but we needed a little time to do it. The next day brought in a Powerpoint of us with labels stuck to our faces of chemicals and used tins as the particle things,
    we even had a sountrack of songs. The teacher thought it was great, even though we got it all completely wrong and it only took like an hour to do.

    It was abducted by little green aliens to show there little green children what the perfect homework looks like.

    i used that on my German teacher. He said he wouldn't punish me as I had a creative reason.

    A mate of mine fed gave his rabbit his homework and took a polaroid picture of the rabbit eating it and then gave it to the teacher

    Then whilst the teacher was screaming at him he pulled out a second copy of the work and gave it to him. The teacher didnt know whether to laugh or kill him
    Haha nice - I actually gave my dog some of my old notes and took a picture. My teacher gave me a week extension! :yep:

    It wasn't to do with homework but I guess my funniest comment in class (saying I was really quiet) was in an history lesson we had this really old weird strict history teacher who was mad once cause no one was putting their hand up to answer his question. He saw me fiddling with my pen and shouted 'get on your blasting feet, up up' I was so scared and he asked me to give an advantage of living in the victorian society compared to now I didn't know what to say so said 'we would have had less history to learn' I didn't mean it as a joke but realised when people started laughing and he started fuming even more.

    What I used to do if I hadn't finished my work was print of what I had done but as it was printing I would drag it through the printer so that all the ink smudged. Then I would use it a proof that the printer was broken.

    Haha!! Reminds me a lot the time when my homework was late, I used to print 1/4 of it, then write the rest in handwriting to show I had to re-write loads of it as the printer had 'broken' halfway.

    I did once use the dog ate it excuse and I got away with it

    It was a few weeks after we'd adopted a dog from the RSPCA. I told the teacher all about how I'd accidentally left some of my books and papers downstairs with the dog one night and he'd chewed them and I hadn't known that he would do this because we hadn't had him long and he'd never done it before, and how sorry I was and that I'd never leave him alone with anything like that again etc etc.

    Complete lie, my dog's really good and has never properly chewed anything up apart from a couple of his toys. She still believed me though (I was such a good girl at school) and gave me a weeks extension! Laughed so much with my friends at break, couldn't believe I got away with it, but I think because it is such a cliche, teachers don't think you're making it up if you do lie fairly well about it.

    I had this teacher once who totally hated our class, the guy was a joke, but he was absolutely livid if anyone was late. I arrived late one day, used the excuse that, "I was walking to school, and started sneezing, and I couldn't stop, so it took longer to get to school than usual." Worked perfectly.
