The "Jimmy Kimmel Live" show has turned mean tweets into comedy by having celebrities read out loud what's being said about them on Twitter. It has become so popular that it's even going outside of the late night and some politicians are doing it of their own accord.

The University of Alabama's student news organization, the Crimson White, recently had a slightly different take on the comedic trend and had professors read their reviews posted on RateMyProfessor.com.

"Almost too easy," Dr. John Beeler in the university's history department led off in the video.

"Beeler is perhaps the best lecturer at the university, however, he has some strange infatuation with Mr. T," he continued of another rating.

"Thrift store wardrobe and detests Gen. MacArther. A tad eccentric," Beeler rattled off of a few other reviews.

"I know why this person didn't get much out of the class, because in engineering you have to do engineering in order to learn it," Dr. Alan Lane said of a student who suggested in the rating that people use the online solution manual to complete homework that would otherwise take hours.

"He's an awesome guy," Lane read of another rating and said it's something he likes to hear, but then it continued, "just a really bad teacher."

"My biggest complaint," Dr. James Hubner, also in the engineering department said, "is out of 19 I have no 'hotness.'"
