Last year in my class we had a 'quote of the day' board, and I recorded all of the quotes, so here follows a (somewhat long) selection of the best ones! (I also have a collection of my favorite book quotes, but I'll put those in a separate comment so I don't overwhelm the admins or any readers.)

“But Pennsylvania doesn’t start with a p!”

“How many times have I told you? Carrots aren’t air!”

“We’re solving for bananas?!”

“Nice braining there, [name].” 

“Icky is a highly technical math term.” 

“It’s a French hat? That explains everything.”

“1 and 27 are literally the exact same number.”

“...making sure food doesn’t have food in it.”  

“I have no friends, just trombones.” 

“I know what you’re talking about. What are you talking about?” 

“Raisins are the shriveled toes of dead saints.”

Were those things your classmates said? They're hilarious. There's this one kid in my math class who would totally say the 1 and 27 one.

A conversation between my friends and me yesterday. 

Possibly: Hey Jaz, you wanna know something?

Jaz: Sure.

Possibly: Have you ever realized that Karen never changes? We've known her for three years. Every year she always looks the same, sounds the same, and acts the same! 

Jaz: Woah.

Possibly: So I've come up with two theories. Either she's immortal, or there's a labratory making Karen clones that sends only eleven-year old Karens to camp. 

Jess: Wait, so what happens to the old Karens?

Sarah: .....

Jaz: (Calling across the room) Hey, Karen! What happens to your other clones when they grow older than eleven?

Karen: They become clone labor while the original Karen sits in the basement and eats chips.

Possibly and Jaz: !!!!!
