Revealed: the best #TeachingFilmPun entries

6th October 2013 at 12:29

For a bit of Sunday fun – as well as to promote our survey to find teachers’ top 100 films, which you can find here – we’ve been asking the members of the teaching twittersphere to come up with their very own puntastic education-related film titles.

The number of suggestions we received from teachers using the hashtag #TeachingFilmPun was, quite simply, phenomenal.

The competition has been fierce; the debate, heated; the puns, frankly, atrocious. But after a suitably rigorous judging process, we are delighted to reveal that the peerless punster is…


Vision For Education (@VisionForEd), who came up with the magnificent entry "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Supply”.

Here are some of the best of the rest:
