Apparently I'm Deep

I have given up counting the amount of the times some students have looked at me over the last few weeks and uttered the utterly incomprehensible phrase: “That’s deep, Sir, that is”, after I’ve said something or other to them.

Today, I decided that I had to find out exactly what it was that I was saying to merit this response, so I plucked up the courage (giving into the notion that I would appear like a total dweeb) and asked a Year 10 student for a definition of the term.

I wish I hadn’t bothered.

Apparently, “deep” is slang for “evil” so that you can now draw your own conclusions about me.

Moral of the story: Sometimes, it is best to be kept in the dark.

Hi Teacher,

Nice one to remember.

I have another one: sometimes it is very smart not to be smart that particular moment ... .

deep=evil? That would be my last guess. I can think of a million inspiring (and dirty) translations for "deep".... but evil?? How have you earned that title?
