It’s All Dutch To Me

| Miami, FL, USA | Learning | March 12, 2017

(We are talking about the industrial revolution.)

Student #1: “[Teacher], do you know what a Dutch apple pie is?”

Teacher: “Yes, I do. Why?”

Student #1: “It’s named that because it was first made in Dutch, right?”

Teacher: “…”

Student #2: “There is no country named Dutch.”

Student #1: “What about like Deutschland?”

Teacher: “THAT’S GERMANY!”

Student #1: “No, Germany is called Germany. Deutschland is where Dutch people live.”

(The teacher ended up taking two ibuprofens and leaving the room.)
