The GDCF Comedy Break Episode 2: Best Homework Excuses
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.

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.”

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.
