Hello! Welcome to the KIS Class of 2017 Grade 8 Term 3 Oscars! We’ve done these oscars many times now, starting all the way back in Grade 6, and I hope that you’ll enjoy this term’s oscars the same way that you have with previous ones. It is always a pleasure to recount the hilarious and crazy moments here in this class, and I must say that we’ve had our fair share of them this year.
Not only are we presenting you with the class oscars, however, but instead this year we will also be giving you a new feature: the CO’17 Influential Five list. It is a list of the top five most influential people this year in G8, based on voting done on the oscars survey.
Now, please sit back and enjoy the G8 Term 3 Oscars.
The CO’17 Top Five Influential List
This votes were first taken by the G8T3 Oscars Survey. Afterwards, the votes were counted and a rough list was made. Afterwards, a couple of people were asked to form a top 5 list, which were then finalized into a single list. Here it is!
Fern was the leader of G8A in the synchronized swimming unit. Even though at the start of our syncronized swimming she was pushing us to do things we didn’t really appreciate, in the end she figured out a way to help us and do what we all enjoyed, and she herself came in a joined the action, not just standing and shouting. Despite the fact that some 8As feel that she was like a volcano that randomly erupted, or that she was to 8A what Kim Jong Un is to North Korea, many also feel she led them very well, allowing 8A to have a very successful performance.
Every class has a trendy person, and Jopang is ours. Infusing our class with amazing spirit, he is always at the forefront of dancing and hairstyle trends. His excellent choreography for 8B synchronized swimming allowed a stunning cover of Gentleman and a pool adaptation of Genghis Khan. His enthusiasm and all-around awesomeness is surely influential to the class.
If a joke is being repeated across the class, then it’s very likely to have came from this person: Anush. His jokes travel extremely fast, gaining popularity in an instant, and all of them greatly help in cheering the class up. Whether they are funny noises or weird jokes that should not be written about on here, we all love the hilarious things that he says. Anush is also the man with the funniest laugh in the world. He is undoubtedly one of the most influential people in KIS17.
Turbo comes in as 2nd most influential with the impact he made on the KIS community at the synchronized swimming show. A true risk taker and courageous man, he was inspired by Azis’s music video, HOP, and decided to adapt the dance moves for 8B’s sync swim performance in a way that truly dazzled and amazed both G8 and the rest of the secondary school. His jokes are also amazing; in his own words, although “it might sound so wrong, but it will feel so right”. His endless energy and hyperactivity infuses the class with great spirit that cannot be seen elsewhere.
Description written by Jopang and Por.
Ken has been a wonderful dictator of KIS Class of 2017. He was able to organize KIS website and Facebook. He was able to lead Synchronize Swimming perfectly and effectively. It might be hard to deal with some group of people, but Ken did it! YAY! He is a true leader! To live up to his class nickname, he will continue to lead us, and won’t be afraid to fight Lord Darryl for class dictatorship.
G8 Term 3 Oscars
Note: some oscars were written by Mint.
The Windows Award, the Civilized Dancer
Aditya is given the Windows Award for being able to resist the iWave of Apple products that swept through the class and has refused to convert to OS X. Bill Gates would love him for being such a diehard Windows fan.
Aditya is also one of the most civilized dancers ever. In fact, his dance moves are so civilized as to be astounding to all the great minds of the world. After all, who is here to dispute that buttshakes are uncivilized? Or dancing on canteen tables?
The Poet, Punk Girl
Say hello to the best poet in the class: Antonia. All the words that she writes come out sounding like music: she’s William Shakespeare reincarnated.
Contrary to being Shakespeare, however, Antonia is also a punk girl. *imagine heavy metal music playing*
World’s Funniest Laugh, the Weird Voice Man
If you search on YouTube for ‘The World’s Funniest Laugh’, you’re bound to get tons of results. Our lovely friend Anush has one too that I’m sure will one day be the top result of that particular search:
Everyone’s reaction to this video was totally:
Using that lovely throat that he can utilize for the world’s weirdest laugh, he can also make any weird noise that you want him to do, ranging from some lovely girly voices to Indian howling to some disturbing effects.
The Peace Advocate, the Romance Anime Guy
Eric is a peace advocate for peace between the two hostile Koreas. Mention North Korea/Kim Jong Un to him, and he might become excessively angry, for he yearns for peaceful inter-Korea relations and also for the hopeful reunification of the country one day. Because of this, Eric is a peace advocate.
Eric is also in love with romantic anime. According to Por, not only has he watched a hell load of romantic anime, but he still routinely asks around for more. We can only guess about what Eric’s romantic life is like, of course, but it certainly must be very pink and rosy.
The Iron Lady
Defeat? I do not recognize the meaning of the word. -Margaret Thatcher
‘The Iron Lady’ was a nickname attached to Baroness Margaret Thatcher, the recently deceased ex-Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. During Thatcher’s time as PM, she was known as ‘the Iron Lady’ because of her uncompromising and fierce leadership style; she refused to bend down to any threats or other external pressure. Doesn’t this sound familiar? If you are in 8A, you might have said yes to that question. But even though Fern could be uncompromising and iron-willed, She is a person who always helps everyone do their job, and try to make the best of everyone. During the synchronized swimming, she was the leader of our group and helped us collaborate with the moves, as if she were a coach. Here we recognize her as the true Iron Lady of the class.
If someone could get a fountain to cool down her temper at times, however, that person would deserve a ‘Withering the Iron’ oscar all to themselves.
We’ve always had the anuual ‘Teudocrator’ award for random noisy people who prove themselves to be very teudish. This year, however, I’m also introducing the Silentocrator award for people who are silent and nice. Inaya gets this year’s Silentocrator title; congratulations Inaya.
The Outcasted Frontman, the Trendy Hair
Outcasted is the band that represents KIS Class of 2017. And who better to be the frontman of such a band other than Indy, one of the most trendy people in the class? Indy is not only the drummer of the band, but also its face; his name is synonymous with the word ‘Outcasted’ by now.
Indy also has very trendy hair that matches his characteristics perfectly. It is so distinctively ‘Indy’ that we all know it is Indy’s hair.
Hottest Man Alive 2013, the Shirt-ripper
Lookin’ for some hot stuff baby this evenin’
I need some hot stuff baby tonight
Donna Summer, you need some ‘hot stuff?’ There, take Iya. Iya is the hottest man alive. Yes, even hotter than Kim Jong-un.
Iya’s supremely hot shirt-ripping during synchronized swimming was very well received by the school.
Guitar Dude, All Rounder
The Supereater, “YEA MAN”
Envy those who eat a lot but never get fat.
Jerry fits in with the quote above exactly. He can eat twenty plates of nam tok at lunch, but his waist will NOT expand, he will NOT get fat. In fact, he will NEVER get fat. (But now that he’s moving to Germany, we can’t be sure. Germany does have a lot of sausages, not to mention beer).
Another oscar that we shall award to Jerry can be described in only two words:
The Gentleman, Kim Jopang Un
Last year, Psy took the world by storm with his hit single, Gangnam Style; everyone all over the world suddenly started imitating his iconic horse-riding moves. This year, he did it again with the new single Gentleman, and Jopang, Psy’s long lost younger brother, imitated his elder brother’s moves very well.
The superstar of the South is not the only person that Jopang has taken as an idol, however; the equally famed Supreme Leader of North Korea is also another of Jopang’s superstars.
Jopang is certainly a symbolization of the hope of the reunification of the Korean peninsula. Good job this term, Jopang, we all love you.
The Lord Dictator
Oscar written by Antonia,
We all know that Ken has successfully been our one and only Lord Dictator for quite a long time, however, once again, we would like to re-dedicate this honored Oscar to him for the Grade 8 Oscars Term 3. Highlighting his splendid work on applying his dictator skills to guide Grade 8 to the light! One of his major accomplishments was the Synchronized Swimming presentation that grade 8B had some weeks ago. Ken and his incomparable organization and leadership skills have led his class to glory and therefore let them be the winners of the Grade 8 Synchronized Swimming 2013! What would 8 Grade be without this magnificent and awesome dictator? A big clap for our grand dictator! **claps**.
The Class Entertainer
KK is the entertainer of the class. Just seeing his face can make people laugh sometimes; no wonder that everyone feels so entertained when he is around. His dancing is legendary, his jokes are awesome and he is just a purely entertaining human being.
Thank you KK for spreading smiles all over the class this year.
Clumsy Queen, the Explorer of the Bush
Larissa sits on the throne of the Empire of Clumsiness. Where some people are clumsy, she is very clumsy. Take people’s clumsiness and multiply it by a thousand. No one has ever been as clumsy as her before and no one ever will be.
Larissa is also an explorer of the bush. She really likes exploring unknown places with a lot of leeches, especially areas that are especially bushy. For example, here is a picture of her in a rather bushy area.
Mimmi is another one of our class’s anime freaks. (Yeah, we have quite a couple in our class). He watches anime during the day, he dreams about anime during the night, and it would be reasonable to suspect that he showers with anime soap (while listening to his favorite Linkin Park, of course).
The Procrastinator, Best Tweeter
Our class is well known for having many world-class procrastinators. It is not uncommon to see half the class freaking out during homeroom to start an essay due during period 1. However, as with all things, there is always the best of the best, and we present the award of the Greatest Ever Procrastinator to…Mint! 😀
She is also our class’s biggest Tweeter. Although we don’t have access to Twitter’s internal statistics, it would be reasonable to assume that more than a third of Twitter’s overall site activity comes from Mint’s computer. WEE AHUE LETS TWEET EVERY MINUTE WOO
I’m really sorry Niki. I know you’ve got this oscar (or something like this) over and over again but like that’s the only thing people ever suggest. Anyway, yes, Niki is the class’s top computer geek.
We will certainly see you as the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg one day no doubt. Good luck in your technical career!
The Romantic Lover, the Weird Voice
Romantic love is a theme in human history that has always been extremely important. While some will argue that love isn’t necessary for the continuation of the human species, some think that it is a basic need in life. Paan is a person who cannot live without romantic love.
You say you love everyone, Paan. -Mr Bruce
Paan’s famous love affairs are a well known subject that is discussed in every gossip session in the class. Therefore, we award her with the Romantic Lover oscar.
Perhaps as a method of seducing boys, Paan has developed a very manly voice shout that can be used at any moment. (Not exactly sure how a manly voice would seduce a man, but still).
The Best Stalker
Pat is one of the most proficient people in our class at the art of stalking. Stalking is something that requires skill, patience and keen observation skills. Pat has all of this; he has shown the class that he can truly be a great stalker. I’m not sure if this is something he should be proud of or not, but okay. I guess he could be. Following people around is a fun thing to do, right?
There is nothing impossible to him who will try. -Alexander the Great
According to Mint, this year Peter has gone through a self transformation into one of the most hardworking and constantly self-reflecting and improving students this year. We applaud Peter for ever striving to be the best, as this is a quality that everyone should have. *applause for Peter*
Student of the Year
Por gets this year’s Student of the Year award for being the class’s best student all year round. Not only does she receive outstanding grades that outshine everyone else’s, she can achieve this even through hardcore procrastination. This is a superhuman feat that only her can do.
*starts singing a holy student verse for Por*
Miss Universe, Sexiest Woman 2013
Baby you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell
You don’t know
You don’t know you’re beautiful
Who was One Direction talking about when they wrote these lyrics? We have an answer: it’s Praew. When Praew walks into the room, everyone’s face brightens up, for her sexiness illuminates the room, creating an aura of light that shines through and lifts away all thoughts of sadness.
Usually for most oscars I’d have a lot of pictures to illustrate, but for Praew, only one picture can show her sexiness, and that is A PICTURE OF HERSELF:
The Best Singer
Pun Pun doesn’t admit it, but she’s actually the best singer in our class. She claims that if she sings the microphones will burst, but actually the microphones will probably increase in size in delight of hearing such a beautiful voice. Pun Pun’s voice is without parallel in this class, and let’s make her admit it.
KFC Man, Most Predictable Dancer
Rajat is this term’s KFC man! You know, KFC: Kentucky Fried Chicken. The one with the good crispy chicken. Yeah, that one. Rajat’s a big fan of KFC.
Rajat is also one of the class’s most predictable dancers. After all, there’s only one dance move (albeit a very catchy one) that he does- all the time.
The Best Abbaewer, the Music Addict
Sign is the best Abbaewer in G8! She can abbaew wherever she goes, whenever she wants, for whatever reason. Girls, if you’re looking to learn how to abbaew, please go to Sign. She will make you a pro.
Sign is also a big-time music addict. She always has an earphone in her ear (just look at the picture above ^). We hope her ears don’t blast out, but still enjoying music is a good thing for mental health.
Tiya’s ability of saying ‘NO’ is legendary.
The Grand HOP Master, the Teudocrator
Turbo is the absolute HOP master. What is HOP, you ask? It’d be great to embed the video here…but for a couple of reasons that are evident to those who have watched HOP, I guess it’d be better not to. If you still haven’t watched HOP and you are curious to know about it, then click here. Don’t watch it if you’re not prepared for some really weird stuff. You have been warned.
But yes. Turbo is the Grand HOP Master. No one, save for the legendary Azis himself, can do better HOP than him. After all, it is not for nothing that Turbo was voted the second most influential person in the class this term.
Finally, Turbo receives the most prestigious CO’17 title of the Teudocrator of the Term. A post previously held by Anush (G8T1) and Paan (G7), this title is given only to people who the class recognizes as being so amazingly teudish.
The Hardcore Teacher
Hardcore: unswervingly committed, uncompromising, dedicated. -Dictionary.com
Ms Oui is a legend in our class for her supreme hardcoreness. This is not something that can be described in words; only once you are present in her class will you be able to experience it for yourself.
Let us read a poem about Ms Oui.
The Fashionable Teacher
Ms Lana is the most fashionable teacher in school. When she walks into class on Monday morning, all sleepy eyes suddenly shine bright and are set upon her. We now turn to:
AN OPEN LETTER TO MS LANA
Dear Ms Lana,
Our class is, in fact, a secret admirer of your taste of fashion. Although we choose not to express it publicly in class, we really like your fashion, which is why we would like to present you with the class oscar of Most Fashionable Teacher.
Thank you for teaching us this year.
* * * * *
Alright, we’re done with the Oscars this year. I hope you enjoyed them and that they help to serve as a reminder of good memories of this year.
