Not strictly academic, but close enough. I’m Asian American and was taking a plane back to my university to finish up my PhD in English Literature and teach a composition class. The man sitting next to me asked me why I was flying from the West Coast to the Midwest. I told him I was going to the University of ________.
He asked me why I was going to the university so I told him I teach English.
He says, “You mean you’re learning English.”
“No,” I say. “I’m teaching English.”
“You see,” he replies, “You are confusing the words ‘teach’ and ‘learn.’ You are learning English.”

I love how potato in French is pomme de terre, which pretty much means “earth apple.”
like what stupid frenchman saw this:
and said “zis petite légume looks like a, how you say, APPLE! hmmm… but it grows in ze earth… HON HON HON! MAIS OUI! C’EST UNE POMME DE TERRE!”
j’adore comment ananas se dit pineapple en anglais, ce qui veut littéralement dire “pomme de pin”, genre quel type anglais a vu ça:
et s’est dit : “ow cette étrange big fruit ressemble à une, how do you say, POMME! hmmm… mais plutôt une pomme qui pousse dans les pins… HU HU HU! OH YES, IT’S A PINEAPPLE!”
(z’avez vu, on peut le faire aussi… hon hon hon!)
what if instead of countries declaring war on each other there was just a big rap battle

My sister keeps asking me if I want to go see The Great Cosby with her and I don’t have it in my heart to correct her.
