Stupid Things College Kids (and Professors) Say

I've been back at school for a few weeks now and since I've started my Retail classes I've heard quite a few doozies.

In my Retail Promotion class we were discussing our display boxes we were making:

Professor- "Now all of the objects that are in the display should have a similar function."
Girl with bed hair and Northface fleece jacket- "Um excuse me but what exactly do you mean by 'function' "?

I think she should catch up on a classic. "Conjuction junction, what's your function?"
To be fair though, that same professor was explaining the differences between clothing fixtures used on selling floors. She kept talking about large shelving units that are usually bolted down to the floor and used in places like Home Depot and grocery stores. Her pronunciation was throwing everyone off. So I raise my hand and ask, with a straight face, "What exactly do you mean by 'gone-dough-la' and how do you spell it?"
"Well it's spelled g-o-n-d-o-l-a. You know like those boats in Italy."

Sometimes life seems funnier and stupider (ha!) with a southern accent y'all. 

Gonedoughla example.

Have a blessed Sunday tomorrow.
