It's funny because it's true.
Until Dena Blizzard from "One Funny Mother," never has someone so adequately and accurately depicted the hell that is this 2020/2021 school year. If you're a parent, a teacher, or even a school administrator, this video is sure to give you a chuckle, from beginning to end.
Some of our favorite lines?
- "Your feedback was so valuable. We were able to grab all that data and throw it away!"
- "The other cohort attends on Tuesdays and alternate Thursdays—but only in months ending in the letter R."
- "Afternoon classes are not 28 minutes long; they are only 23 minutes long. And that is for no reason whatsoever."
- "Art and music will be taught on days divisible by 3. All right? So you're gonna need to do some math for these extra classes."
- "Now, we are excited to have these kids back at school and to give them the sense of normalcy that these kids deserve!"
- "We are going to take the temperature of kids rectally when it's medically necessary or if someone sneezes. So we are prepared on all fronts to be able to service your children."
- "We know you have a lot of time on your hands, so just expect there will be an additional survey coming out; we're always looking to better our processes. So you'll be getting one more survey about previous surveys. So it's a survey on surveys."
If you've experienced any confusion about school in the age of COVID, this 6-minute video is worth every second of your time.
But don't for a second think that Blizzard is hating on educators:
"I’ve always stood by our teachers and I think they are just as confused as parents and students," Blizzard told Good Morning America. "At the end of the day we all need to just accept we are all doing our best and find the funny in it."
