Smartest Teacher Ever Threatens Unruly Pupils with Game of Thrones Spoilers

By Gerald Lynch on at

In my day, if you misbehaved in school it was an hour in the thumbscrews or lunchtime on the rack. These days, teachers dishing out the discipline have to be a bit more creative. One French maths teacher knew exactly how to hit disruptive students where it hurt -- with Game of Thrones spoilers.

The story was shared by one of the teacher's pupils on DansTonChat, who revealed the unorthodox punishment. When a classroom wouldn't settle down for a lesson, the teacher asked how many of his students watched the HBO series. The majority of pupils raised their hands. The teacher then revealed he too was a fan -- and had read all of the books, the plot of which is way ahead of the TV series.

He then threatened to list the death of every major character in sequence until the class shut up, and began writing them all on the board. Needless to say the children quickly settled down -- especially once the teacher reached the blood-soaked season three closer. I'd hazard a guess that the teacher may have needed medical treatment for his tired wrist if he attempted to write out all of the deceased from the infamous Red Wedding scene.
