The Mirror (not The Onion) writes Teacher stuns noisy pupils into spellbinding silence by threatening them with Game of Thrones spoilers.
"At one point he became tired, he stopped and asked the classroom who was watching Game of Thrones and three quarters of the room put their hands up.
"He said, 'well I have read all the books and from now on when there is too much noise I will write the name of the next death'."
The teacher then began writing names as a hurried silence fell across the room.
The student added: "I can tell you there was a religious silence during the last lesson."
True or not, a pretty fun story.
