Me: “And if you’re curious about why we make you take this course, today is the anniversary of Kristallnacht.”
Student: “Yes!” *pumps fist*
Classroom: Confused Look
Student: “Oh. Wait.”
Student #2: “That’s when they murdered my family!”
Classroom: *universal facepalm*
Me: “So, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you might want to Google it, so you don’t make a butt out of yourself in class like this guy.”
So: Those who don’t know their history, are doomed to make asses out of themselves in public?
