Teacher Asks Students To Google Something Seemingly Innocent And It Turns Into The World’s Biggest Cockfest
Oddly enough, doing your homework is Teaching 101. As a teacher you never want to be wrong, your students see you as the end-all-be-all of knowledge, and in order to keep up that false persona it’s always best to research and go over your lesson plan beforehand (as thoroughly as possible). Of course this is all easier said than done. There are always going to be times when teachers are flying by the seat of their pants, and in this case we’ve got one teacher who tossed out a seemingly innocent assignment to a class of students that ended with hundreds and hundreds of cocks.
This story came from Reddit’s TIFU (Today I Fucked Up) by Akn4bkn, and in it the teacher asks students to check out the national symbols of Bhutan…Just wait:
TIFU by telling my students to google “symbols of Bhutan”
I teach high school geography and am currently teaching South Asia. I told my students to google “Symbols of Bhutan”, thinking that they would see a lot of dragons, which is the national symbol for Bhutan. But no, instead if you google it, you get lots of paintings of dicks. Big dicks. Ejaculating dicks. Exploding dicks. Cocks everywhere. Should have looked this up myself first. I have already gotten one angry email from a parent. I’m now awaiting more. Here’s hoping I still have a job tomorrow.
Update 1: Next morning, three emails from parents and one phone call. Going to see my principal first thing today to give her the um..heads up…
I’ll give you a quick look at what you might expect to find when searching Google Images for ‘Symbols of Bhutan’:
So, why is Bhutan covered in paintings of dicks? Wiki has a decent enough explanation:
While the history of use of phallus symbols is traced to Drukpa Kunley, the studies carried out at the Center of Bhutan Studies (CBS) have inferred that the phallus was an integral part of the early ethnic religion that existed in Bhutan before Buddhism became the state religion and is associated with Bon. In Bon, phallus was integral to all rituals. Dasho Lam Sanga, a former principal of the Institute of Language and Culture Studies (ILCS), while stating that there are no written documents on it, elaborates: “But the worship of the phallus was believed to be in practice even before the arrival of Guru Rinpoche and Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal … What we know about it is what we heard from our forefathers.”
The phallic symbols are, however, generally not depicted in community temples and dzongs, which are places of worship where lamas or Buddhist monks and nuns who have adopted celibate lifestyles and pursue divine ideals live. However, rural and ordinary houses continue to display them.
So anyways, if you ever want to trick someone into Googling photos of dongs at an awkward moment just ask them google ‘National Symbols Of Bhutan’.
