Hilarious teacher gains popularity online sharing skits of random things his students say
I've never seen a full-grown man impersonate a child so well in my life. He's spot-on.

They say that kids say the darndest things.

But how true is this?

If you have kids, work with kids like at school or in a daycare center, or have a niece or nephew, you know these words ring true.

A conversation with them, as Forrest Gump puts it, is like a box of chocolates. You never really know what you’ll get until they open their mouths.

A content creator perfectly frames this.

In an upload, content creator Leigh_McNasty showed what it’s like to have a conversation with elementary school children.

Or, at least if we limit the definition of a conversation to just “taking turns to speak”.

His video “Kids say the most random things” starts with him pretending to be an elementary school teacher.

The first skit shows him asking students to hand over the calculators they borrowed.

Then a child speaks up.

He wants to tell him about “pocket sand”. “I really have a lot of sand in my pocket,” the “kid” says as if it’s the most important piece of information at the moment.

The dumbfounded teacher just stares at him, trying to figure out what to do with the information.

The kid then produced a handful of sand and dusted it over his desk. Then he told his teacher about the time his goldfish was flushed in the toilet.

Before the teacher can speak up, the kid then made an unsolicited cartwheel.

The homework

In one clip, he asked his students to hand over their homework. Instead of submitting their assignment, the student suddenly asks his teacher if he knows his older brother.

Or if he will ever be better than Lebron Jordan, the greatest NBA player of all time in an alternate universe.

He also read a story to the kids where one of them kept huffing and fanning their mouth. Without being asked, the kid just said they were fed hot Cheetos for breakfast.

Talk about “breakfast of champions”.

The kid then asked if they could go to the bathroom. If it was to wash their Cheeto-covered hands or something else, we’ll never know.

Much like the reason why they did another cartwheel.

People all over love his skits.

He perfectly pictures how it is to have a conversation with a child and the tons of information you’ll get but never asked for.

Whether teachers like it or not, they will have to learn how to keep their mouths shut, either from laughing or keeping the most controversial family secrets.

That’s how random these conversations get.

Teachers also shared their own experiences in the comment section.

“Omg I am DYING!! I once had a student tell me “my daddy doesn’t live with us anymore….” it’s like they give you all kinds of tea you never asked for” said one commenter.

“I’m a K-6 music teacher…. This is so accurate that it hurts. ESPECIALLY the random cartwheels and handstands during class.” Another one said, ending her comment with a crying emoji.

“This is a depiction of my 2nd boy, Jack. He has millions, zillions of facts and no physical grace moving his body. I love him, but sometimes I’m so tired of random facts I let him eat Cheetos on late start Wednesdays.” Another one said.

While Leigh_McNasty’s work is fictional, we can all agree that there’s truth in it. Kids say the darndest and most random things.
