Student Turns In Essay Addressed To “Professor Whats His Nuts” And The Internet Goes Crazy
Zoey Oxley accidentally addresseD her teacher as “Professor whats his nuts” on a college essay and now the entire internet knows
Earlier this week, 22-year-old Ohio University student, Zoey Oxley tweeted that she turned in a paper that just so happened to be addressed to “Professor whats his nuts.” The college student had kept the name as a placeholder and forgot to update it before turning the assignment in via Turnitin. Oxley immediately sent her teacher Professor Hendel an embarrassing email begging for forgiveness as soon as she realized what she had done.
The email read:
I am writing this email very embarrassingly. As I began writing my paper, I wrote out the template. Unfortunately, I could not remember your last name, so I filled it with something completely unprofessional. It was my intention to change the name before submission, but it completely slipped my mind. I attempted to resubmit the assignment but was unable to. I am so very sorry for the lack of respect that was used and again I apologize for the mistake. I hope that this does not reflect what you think of me and that the next assignment I can address by the correct name.
Thank you again and I am so sorry.
Giving the situation a good laugh, Professor John Hendel took to Twitter, tweeting “A student emailed me, profusely, apologizing for getting my name wrong at the top of their paper, and I was like, “Thanks, whatever, nbd.” Then I got to their paper and saw their instructor was “Professor whats his nuts”.
Hendel’s tweet has over 328K likes and 48K retweets to date.

But thankfully, the people of Twitter are emphasizing with Oxley, telling her the crazy things they’ve put on their papers, as well as helping out with miscellaneous formatting and grammatical errors.
I once turned in a paper with the title “Is Genocide Modern or Nahh?” and emailed my professor a long paragraph just to get back— Alicia Petit (@aliciaepetit) September 20, 2018

What a series of unfortunate events. But at least everyone was able to laugh it off. To be safe though, you’re probably better off just not writing anything inappropriate on a college essay, regardless of whether you plan to change it later or not.
