Public speaking. Some people take it all in their stride; some people may get a little nervous. Others would instead pour piping hot coffee on their genitals than stand in front of their peers and deliver a good presentation or a speech. No matter which camp you fall into there is, however, no excuse for lack of creativity in these days of memes and powerpoint. Even if you are one of the lucky few who do have the gift of the gab, you can jazz up your speech with an infinite variety of powerpoint design, quotes, and funny pictures. Or maybe yeah, you can admit that public speaking just isn’t your thing and the most you can manage is standing on stage, shaking slightly and pressing the ‘next' button on your powerpoint slides. Perhaps you just cannot be arsed anymore. Nowadays, you can let your powerpoint presentation do the talking for you.

Bored Panda has put together a list of people who have tried (and sometimes failed) to do just that. From teachers who knew exactly how to keep their pupils' attention to using Justin Bieber for a math problem and an odd presentation on bathing a cat, these people definitely had some good presentation ideas. Though their success levels are varied, we are sure you'll agree that they managed to inject some humor and funny quotes into proceedings!
