A Teacher Didn't Really Spy On Her Students From A Ceiling

But wouldn't it be great if it were true?

On Tuesday, @josephxmorales tweeted a photo that is truly bizarre: a woman peering down from the ceiling.

Who knows?

The user, who told BuzzFeed News his name is Joseph Longoria, said on Twitter the photo showed his teacher spying on his class during a test.

My teacher left the room during a test so we all started sharing answers. Then I look up and she was staring right… https://t.co/BWlfnPXp2N

"This is the first time I've ever thought to myself 'Huh. Maybe I WOULD like being a teacher,'" one person said.

Some people, though, had questions.

They had a lot of questions.

@josephxmorales The real question still remains. How did she get up there?

They were right to be skeptical. Longoria told BuzzFeed News the story wasn't true, he just found the pic online.

"I just had it along with the rest of my pictures," he said. "I was deleting them because ya know, storage almost full, iPhone probs. So I decided to make it into a meme."

BuzzFeed News tracked the photo to a dude from Turkey, who posted it on Twitter in June. But he told BuzzFeed News it wasn't his either, and he got it off Instagram.

All this to say, we don't know who this woman is, or why she was in the ceiling. If you know, email me at stephanie.mcneal@buzzfeed.com.

Who knows?
