Oh, those carefree school days... The cringe was so real that well into our adulthood, we still relive it while we sleep. Although most of the embarrassing stuff that only a thought of it turns us bright red still to this day happened to us and our friends, teachers were not immune to making fun of themselves in front of the whole class.

So when Jimmy Fallon announced his new #MyTeacherIsFunny challenge and asked everyone to tweet the funniest, weirdest and most embarrassing things their teacher has done or said, the answers started pouring in one by one, each better than the previous one.

From a 9th grade teacher who would tell kids to close the blinds every Monday only for them to realize he was hungover, to a teacher who kept a jar of chewed gum on his desk, here are some of the most entertaining stories featuring teacher quirks and school antics. Don’t say you don’t miss it a tiny bit. Just kiddin’.

NBC’s award-winning show Saturday Night Live first premiered on October 11, 1975. Jimmy Fallon was commissioned as a cast member in 1988, and in 2014, he became the sixth permanent host of the long-running The Tonight Show. His weekly hashtag challenges and active social media presence have won him a solid fan-base.

I had the same math teacher as my mom. His son was in my class too so when mom told me he slept with an underaged student his first year, got her knocked up and then married her to make it kosher ( it was the 1970s) I could never look at either one of them the same again

That's one way to get your point across, highly effective I would imagine.

Donald Trump has also helped Jimmy’s Twitter account to get attention. Back in June, Trump attacked Fallon for apologizing for having the then-presidential candidate on his chat show and playfully ruffling his hair. Trump told Fallon to “be a man.”

Oh, and if you're wondering, Barack Obama is the most followed person on Twitter with 110.2M followers. With the presidency now behind him, Obama mostly tweets about work being done by his Obama Foundation and other activities.

My teacher was so sweet. Seriously, I don't even know what he taught anymore, but it was boring. Some sort of math or science. I was painting flowers on my paper. He walked over and said: Do you think flowers are more interesting than my teaching? No sir. Oh you can say yes. My wife likes flowers more too.

My college kids still raise their hands and ask to go to the toilet. I keep reminding them they are adults and this is not a prison. Usually get them trained in the first couple of weeks just to quietly leave and come back

Jobs have appeared and disappeared as long they exist. It's pretty hard to find a job as clock keeper, lamplighter or switch operator in these times.

Our Earth Science teacher ( Mr. Bean, who straight looked like a leprechaun) told us he graded while drunk, which I believe and I know another teacher always had "orange juice" in class. I was his grading assistant in the free period and my friend came in to hang and we tested the "orange juice". It was def a screwdriver. Though after 10 years in the classroom I can sort sympathize.

I personally think large amounts of homework are worthless "busy" exercises. Students don't do it, I get frustrated, they are frustrated, it's all bad. I give very little homework and it is then done without a fuss and on the rare occasion they don't do it, my disappointed face has a lot more impact.

This is why you preview films before showing them. Though the only Spanish movie my high school owned was Babe the Pig. In college our teacher was Spanish and showed movies with violence and sex without blinking an eye

The teacher was covering his back. A text message like that could make him a sex offender in the blink of an eye.

Entirely the teacher‘s fault. Trying to convince students of something and then be surprised when they believe it. (And before anyone says this was too ridiculous to believe, I‘m sure everybody experienced situations where they learned something that seemed utterly unbelievable and yet was still true.)

Why would a civics class be learning about date fruits? Though maybe this explains a lot about the current levels of political literacy.
