Currently the second top trending microblog post on popular Chinese social network Sina Weibo (the first is a movie account promoting its upcoming release) …

From Sina Weibo:

@小野妹子学吐槽: An Area 11 [Japan] student captured the entire sequence of “being caught playing with my mobile phone — the teacher glaring at me — the teacher attacking — my mobile phone being confiscated”… and for some reason, it has stirred up countless terrifying and tragic memories of mine…

Comments from Sina Weibo:


A series of four photos before death. [doge]


Wait, how did he upload them?


I think playing on your mobile phone in class is disrespectful to the teacher in the first place. If you secretly play, that’s one thing, but to take it out [and play with it in the open] to piss off the teacher, sigh.


“Life’s Final Moments Series” [呵呵]


Mama Rong, no, no, no, don’t prick me! [泪][泪][泪]

[Note: Rong Mama is a villain in a Chinese TV historical period drama serial.]


Fuck, so close, I feel like pushing her away.


Completely disrespecting the teacher.


No no no, my teacher always waits until I am most engrossed in my mobile phone to suddenly stick her head out and ask me, “Are you having fun? Come to my office after class then.” And then it is confiscated. [呵呵]


Just looking at these photos…sends chills down my spine…


Looks like my granny… I really miss her.


Hahaha, sure is brave. It feels like photos taken in the last moments of one’s life. [doge]


Should’ve turned the camera around and captured the entire class’s facial expressions. It’d definitely be the raucous laughter and celebration that follows a successful nuclear bomb test. [嘻嘻]


War correspondent.


Hahahahahahahahaha, talk about risking your life to… sigh… No!! Teacher!! Let me finish typing this…


Good thing I’ve become a teacher.

What do you think? How have you gotten in trouble with teachers as a student?

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.

    Well , I had a slightly confused flashback , where I had to change the ethnicity of my first grade teacher Mrs.Montgomery…. but I had a flashback nonetheless.

  • Just_Banlas

    Looks like a no nonsense kind of lady. Hope she used the phone to smack the little rude [email protected] upside the head once she got the phone in her hand….

  • AbC

    This guy appears to be seated at the front of the class (generally kids who misbehave often is moved to the front to be monitored more closely to discourage them from misbehaving), probably not the first time it’s happened.

    • Irvin

      Now they can be moved to the back closer to the teacher’s office.

    The description in the blackboard is written in Japanese. It’s talking about “origin of life” “comet” “image” “launch” “star nucleus” – all of which sound like the topic of so-called panspermia theory for the origin of life on the Earth. This is not a high-school material.

      Is 小野妹子 a (female) Japanese name?

        Ono Imoko

        Actually, 小野妹子 is a guy and a well-known historical figure of Japan in the early 7th century. He was the first documented messenger from Japan (then called “Wa” in China, “Yamato” in Japan) to China.

        He traveled to China, Sui dynasty at that time, carrying a letter which addressed Japan as “land of sun rise” and China as “land of sun set.” It is said that the Sui Emperor got pissed by the letter, because China at that time considered every surrounding regions as barbarians.

          Here’s “his” picture if you can see it.

        • Alex Dương

          Thanks. I ask because the Weibo account from which this came is “小野妹子学吐槽.”

    • Irvin

      Makes you wonder what a chinese version of are you smarter than a fifth grader looks like.

      • BrandeX

        Because that’s not actually already a show?


    • The original Chinese post states that the picture came from a “District 11” school. District 11 was the name used to refer to Japan in the anime Code Geass. District 11 has become a popular term used to denote Japan among Chinese weirdos.

      • KenjiAd

        I see. I learned something new today. :-) Thanks.

  • Irvin

    Keep your friends close and enemies closer, just because they hate them doesn’t mean they should be ignorant of them.

  • AbC

    This may well be a Japanese photo taken by a Japanese student. The photo became popular on Chinese Weibo, but it could very well have originated from Japan.

  • Kai

    Very likely something that spread from the Japanese internet.

  • o0ohahahao0o

    Why is this news?

    • Dolph Grunt

      Why is this anything? It’s very existence is just wrong.

      Tomorrow’s news: Teacher opens door… then closes it.

  • Probotector

    “A District 11 student”? What is this, The Hunger Games? Also, I’m assuming all the Chinese commenters above who said using the phone in class is disrespectful to the teacher are either themselves not students or never were, or they were students before the inauguration of mobile phones, as pretty much every Chinese person dicks about with a fucking phone at some point between taking breaths.

    In any case, I’m not petty enough to confiscate and make a big deal of it during my classes; students will never learn anyway. However, I know one teacher who used to confiscate all the time and had a bag full of the things, as he kept them and never gave them back, and another guy who put them on the window sill and let the wind or gravity do the rest. It’s risky business, as I’m sure you’ll get reprimanded for confiscating their phones these days.

  • Amused

    I find it strange that no one mentions legit purposes for using a phone in school. Wouldn’t taking photos of the work on the board be a legitimate use for a phone in class? Hell, if you’ve got enough memory you could record the entire lecture too…

    • donscarletti

      Both of which any polite student would ask the teacher for permission to do beforehand.

      I mean, even if you don’t consider the fact that the teacher is supposed to be in control of the classroom and that the students really shouldn’t be doing anything without the teacher’s express permission, it’s still common courtesy to ask someone’s permission before recording them.

      • Amused

        I completely agree about the politeness bit.
        Chinese teachers do tend to be overly arbitrary autocratic d-bags from all the evidence I’ve acquired tho(I’ve got a kid in school here). God only knows they’d never be able to bear the sturm and drang that US kids would unleash on their cars, houses and persons if they tried to export them there. Much less what the parents would do to them after the PTA meetings. Overall I’m damn glad I never had to experience what they call education here…
        Good luck to that kid in ever seeing his phone again hahahaha

    “and for some reason, it has stirred up countless terrifying and tragic memories of mine…”

    The Japanese Incursion, The Great Leap Forward, The Cultural Revolution, Tiananmen Square

    Kid’s phone is taken from him by a teacher, and THAT’S going to scar him for life. Kids sure got it easy these days…

  • Apothis

    It is called a bitchslap and it is exactly what this little punk deserved.

  • A Chinese teacher

    Some explanations for the Japanese on the board: (1) It’s one of those immersion classes where academic content is taught in another language or (2) this was actually a school in Japan.

  • Sorry, I thought it was just a school name. I am not so familiar with this anime. You are right. I have edited the post with your correction.

  • Stefan

    She looks really grumpy lol, wouldn’t want her as my teacher.

  • Chris

    good for her. people using their phones in class use to drive me crazy.

  • Freddi BuBu

    Is she single….?

  • Kligger
