13 examples of textbook vandalism that will brighten your day

The trials and tribulations of life at school, though they seemed so potentially life-altering and profoundly important, were, in reality, mere drops in the ocean compared with the veritable tsunami that is adulthood.

Personally, my memories of interminable boredom in the classroom are numerous. Perhaps that is why I proved such a scourge to my teachers' patience: because my own had been worn so very thin by the incessant mundanity of it all.

In such times, misbehavior is the lifeblood to which the educationally disenchanted so desperately cleave; determined, by any means necessary, to carve through the quotidian. There were, of course, innumerable conduits to mischief in the classroom, many of which involved the exasperation of the teacher.

One of the more harmless, though, was doodling absently on one's textbook. A perfect way to while away the hours in class, textbook doodling had the added advantage of being a fairly inconspicuous leisure activity. Here are hilarious examples.
