    I’m not sure which are funnier, the papers or the teachers’ responses to them.

    funniest thing i’ve read this year

  8. Anonymouse Says:

    Roflmao I…can’t…stop…laughing. We need to find Peter Nguyen and give him a medal. How did he get into honors english if he always wrote essays like these?
    I’m dying from laughter. I think I poo’d a little.

    I’m in love with Peter.

  14. Plaid Ranger Says:

    Pinto, we hardly knew ye. :'(

  15. Dean Says:

    I might start watching SNL again if they got Peter Nguyen to write for it.

  16. Kenneth Says:

    The teacher has shown how much of a noob he really is in Internet Slang 101.

    1. S/he doesn’t know what a “noob” is.
    2. “Hopefull (sic.)”, anyone?

  17. Shaolinmonk69 Says:


    omg I love this, reminds me of what I do when I don’t know the answer to stuff on tests. XD

    LOL, and YES we HAVE TO TRACK DOWN PETER NGUYEN! That dude deserves a medal!

  18. The Jedi Master Says:

    I know Peter…

  19. Bryce H. Says:

    Peter Nguyen was born to gods; his father the famous purple cock monster king of planet /b/, his mother the transcendent platonic form of mom, the one all the jokes spawned from. He grew up in a suburban neighborhood with 1.23 other siblings, a mini-van his mom drove him to soccer practice in, and a complete set of Linkin Park albums he oh so independently listened to in his bedroom. In his artistic ventures he gained most of his inspiration from electropop, Milton, and furry porn (of which he watches on his laggy browser at 2:00 in the morning, jerking off while his parents sleep in the room just down the hall). Details are sketchy upon other things due to the fact that this epic hero, a god among men, is the subject of much urban legend and romantic fantasies. This is a complete description of my dealings with Mr. Nguyen.

  20. Wow Says:

    Holy crap, the Pro: Noob antonym almost made me piss myself.

  21. John Says:

    Son a bitch, I drew that lion! The teacher’s lion was drawn by one Ms. Long, a 9th grade Biology teacher at LNHS

  22. Paran Singh Says:

    this is some funny stuff, hopefully it will inspire my future essays =)

  23. JimB Says:

    In Peru they have names for many things. One of those things is poeple who write awesome essays. If we had a name for this it would be Peter Nguyen. But we don’t.

  24. James Styles Says:


  25. Tom Davenport Says:

    God damn I was one of these kids. My greatest piece was called ‘The Vegan Report’, and I wish there was a copy still around - all I remember is something about how vegans are wrong and not one cow in recorded history has complained about being killed and eaten.

  26. Tom Says:

    haha the jesus one is probably the best one
    i think i pissed my self a bit while reading it

  27. Jake Says:

    Find X.

    (X) <— right here!


  28. no diggity Says:

    That paper on 2girls1cup deserved at least a B. The writer has clearly applied an understanding of symbolic interactionism to their analysis of the video.

  29. hamster Says:

    I almost pissed myself.

  30. self. Says:

    wow, peter is pretty damn creative. also, hilarious. i think we would have been friends in high school.
    also “i don’t really pay attention in your class and i’m pretty high right now” … i would assume so.

  31. nevious Says:

    Awesomeness!!!!! Go Peter!!! Do you know, if you yell the name Nguyen in Vietnam, half of the country will say “Yes?” :D

  32. Gus Delfin Says:

    ha ha ha! I like the panda part!!!

  33. Alexis Says:

    My goodness! Who is Peter Nguyen?! He should seriously consider comedy writing! Pure gold his essays were!

  34. Kat Says:

    Oh my god I loved that!

    Frickin’ Peter. He should have gone into comedy. But he probably couldn’t because he probably got all F’s. That ro his teachers had enough and killed him…

    Also I loved the one with the kid who was high.

    And the ‘Find the x’ one.

    All of these = Laughing my ass off.

  35. elena Says:

    lmaooooooooo omg Peter is the sh*t!
    i couldn’t stop laughing!
    i wonder where he is now,
    should be doing more of these for ComedyCentral !

  36. Sharon Says:

    The kid should be thankful he had the professors that he did.

  37. paige Says:

    the papers are hilarious, and while they are not on topic, and don’t prove anything, they are well written and understandable, and that makes me feel better about the world.

  38. Dave Says:

    Forgot one!

  39. KCole Says:

    There are pictures of the “Find X” problem in every single math classroom at my school. I’m not even kidding lmao

  40. msroy Says:

    this post was amazing. thank you so much.

  41. nate Says:


  42. minder42 Says:

    pure gold
    Peter Nguyen needs a medal indeed

  43. Sarah L Says:

    As a high school teacher, I had some funny papers too. These papers are hilarious, and teacher’s comments often trumped the students work. :)

  44. uns orly. Says:



    I love the essay where Jimmy fought Hitler and President Maximoto >w<~

  45. gracie Says:

    lol! Peter Nguyen was such a funny man. He really made me laugh that I shed a tear of laughter.

  46. meloo. Says:

    Lol. that has to have been some of the funniest stuff i’ve read in ages.

    Peter Nguyen you are an epic legd.
    (: omg. just lol. ;’)

    wish i knew who he was ;o

    melissa james :)

  47. Shannon Says:

    Dear God, that was hilarious. I’m dying of laughter right now. I wonder if any of these kids succeeded in life or if they’re all hobos.

  48. Andrea Says:

    This is why I quit teaching

  49. Alphonse Says:

    Peter (Huu) Nguyen originally posted these essays to the forum of an old webcomic, though at the time he was better known for his fanart.

    he was able to get away with those essays because his parents didn’t speak english and, well, he was the only one who could translate for his teachers.

    these days he does freelance graphic design.

  50. Sammy Says:

    how is Peter in honors english??

  51. Snark Says:

    Hilarious. I’d seen a number of these before, but they’re still pretty awesome. How I longed to write a few essays like that in high school…

    Also, there should be a disclaimer that you shouldn’t attempt to drink anything while reading these, I nearly spewed soda all over my keyboard laughing.

  52. Emily Says:

    LMFAOOOO, the panda was the funniest thing ever.
    and freaking the Jesus story.
    wow, i love peter.

  53. Jennifer Says:

    OMG! I’ve been a teacher for 2 years now. I hope I encounter stuff like this is my career! I haven’t laughed this hard in awhile! These kids are creative geniuses, hah!

  54. Sam Says:

    BWAHAHAHAHAAAA! That’s hilarious!

  55. uka Says:

    hahahaha, peter is the greatest! the hitler part was golden. oh man, LMAO

  56. Rick Says:

    Oh sure, when it’s on the Internet it’s hilarious. But when I come home and show far worse things to my mom, she gets mad and calls me a twit.

  57. Fatma Says:

    lOL!!!!! Can’t stop laughing!!!!! Hilarious!!!1 I hope someone sends George Clooney his biography! lol!

  58. Jessica Says:

    haha!!!!! this is HILARIOUS, if i was a teacher and had Peter as a student I would give him an A just for being awesome! he should get a trophy he’s my freakin idol!!

  59. Adeline Says:

  72. alicen wonderland Says:

  73. Saul L Says:

    Some of them are creative and funny, I enjoyed the laughing but other just show how fucked up the American school system is, and that that nothing can replace a good ass whooping from time to time for such spoiled brats get in line and learn to RESPECT, teachers and other people, because is just obvious that everythings is a fucking joke for them. And some of the teachers celebrating them instead of correcting them, I’m glad to see that some teachers deserve to be called that.

    And the Peter guy is a racist prick dumb ass IMO with the occasional good joke, the rest a lot of tosh.

  74. Jason Says:

    Haha best essays ever. Peter, we had some good times.

  75. calleigh Says:

  82. Lisa Says:

  114. OtakuCat Says:

    Peter is a genius! When I destroy the world using Datura Stratonium, Japanese Fugu toxins, and cyanide I’m so gonna spare him!… uh, forget the part I said about Datura Stratonium, Japanese Fugu toxins, and cyanide…. I was just kidding, haha, see I’m laughing! heh.
