Teacher in hysterics after asking kids their plans if they were world President
Primary school students have left people in stitches with their hilarious responses to being asked ‘What would you do as President of the world?’.
While all pupils certainly get an A for effort, their teacher should be praised for his excellent observations on their answers.
Teacher George Pointon tweeted: “I asked my Year 1 classes “What would you do as president of the world?” Here is my analysis; A THREAD.”
Pupil Alice rather optimistically suggested sweets for breakfast… every day.
A nice idea, but Mr Pointon had other ideas, as he witheringly tweeted: “Right, obesity rates are through the roof. Heart disease. Overeating. Alice is taking none of this into consideration.
“The class cheered so she’s won the majority. She knows what works, and who knows, wine gums at 7 am might be nice.”
Another student rather sweetly said they’d like to build a house for their mum.
But Mr Pointon shut it down, as he jokingly commented: “I know you’ve seen this and gone “aww” but look deeper. She’s the President of the WORLD and all she’s doing is building a house for her mum. I think it’s incredibly selfish.
“Also, her mum drives a 21 plate, Audi. Absolute sham. Greedy fatcats.”
But he was more on board with a call to eradicate maths in favour of playtime – which to be honest, many of us can get behind.
Mr Pointon tweeted: “Vote for Rosie. My frontrunner! I hate maths. Chuck it in the bin. She said, “The robots can do it while we play”. I’m actually all for this dystopian wonderland. She’s really saying, we live to work not the opposite. Time for change.”
One thoughtful pupil pledged to “stop the virus,” which left people tickled.
The primary school teacher added: “Stop the virus” Clear. Precise. Topical. Wendy knows EXACTLY what she’s doing with this tagline.
“She’s a politician through and through. Didn’t give facts. Didn’t need to. ‘stop the virus’ ‘but how?’ ‘Doesn’t matter, just stop it’…this is Trump if he was a decent man.”
The viral thread left people in stitches, as one dubbed it “comedy gold.”
One fan joked: “Love all of it except stopping the maths. We kinda need the maths.”
Another commented: “Adults applying logic to the nonsense that children say may be my favourite genre of tweet.”
A third added: “Ravi is definitely my fighter!!! Where do I place my vote.”
