The GDCF Comedy Break Episode 2: Best Homework Excuses

by | Oct 9, 2015

Welcome to the GDCF Comedy Break Episode 2! So it’s finally here, the day for classroom assignments to be handed in. You wait patiently and expectantly after the announcement is made. One by one, your pupils come forward bright-eyed and eager to show you their best efforts. But wait—there are some assignments missing.

Now you’ve got something new to look forward to. You get to listen to the soaring tales concocted by some of your students as they try to dodge the “missing homework bullet.”

This isn’t to say all homework excuses are invalid, because many of them are fair and quite legitimate. Others are not so believable. And let’s face it, some of them have you trying to conceal your laughter.

The truth is teachers have heard every excuse in the book for missing or just plain non-existent homework. That said, some excuses are way more imaginative than others.

These following excuses are among some of the best ones out there. They are actual homework excuses given by students, and some of the things these kids came up with are pure genius.
