World's Best Teacher

COMEDY. It’s the first day of school and rumor has it that the new teacher from Russia, Ms. Porschtov, is a real pushover. But when Ms. Porschtov arrives, the students quickly meet her assistant, Comrade Vladimir, a medieval club to “keep moron children from being moron.” Instead of learning her students’ names, Ms. Porschtov gives them new names like “Tricky Witch,” “Clown Girl,” “Mr. Smarty-Arty Pants,” and “Stupid Bird.” Ms. Porschtov announces that there will be “no more dancy music, no more sugar sweets, and none of these tel-e-phones” for her stoopid American students. After a Russian history lesson in which they learn that Stalin never existed and that Russia is the best country in the world because its women are “strong like ox,” Ms. Porschtov “rewards” the students with a game of Soviet Show and Tell!
