16. Humility in Student Papers
I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been in a position in our school career where we had absolutely no idea what we were writing about. Regardless of where you went to school and how smart you thought you were (or are), student papers are hard to write. Especially when you’re already stressed about the outcome and have five more papers and a social life to worry about.
This line in a student paper really takes the cake. First of all, the joke in itself is hysterical. But the fact that the student actually wrote this in their paper, and then submitted it, knowing that the professor would read this? Really, really funny. Takes a lot of courage! Plus, you have to appreciate the honesty.
