Come Late And Start Sleeping ("class” backronym)

"Come Late And Start Sleeping” is a backronym (back-acronym) of the word “class” that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts and posters. “C.L.A.S.S - Come Late And Start Sleeping” was cited on Twitter on May 14, 2010.

Several sayings about sleeping through lectures include “A professor is one who talks in someone else’s sleep” and “Now I sit me down to sleep; the speaker’s dull, the subject deep.” “How to sleep faster: Decorate your bedroom to look like a classroom” is a related saying.

Similar school-related backronyms include “Six/Seven Crappy/Crazy Hours Of Our Lives” (school), “Sucks Children’s Happiness Out Of Life” (school), “Fuck, I Never Actually Learned Shit” (finals) and “Half Of My Energy Wasted On Random Knowledge” (homework).
