“Study (verb)—The act of texting, eating and watching TV with an open textbook nearby”

The website Grouchy Rabbit published a jocular definition in March 2011 that quickly became popular with students:

“Study (verb) - The act of texting, eating and watching TV with an open textbook nearby.”

This definition of “study” has been printed on many items, including T-shirts, handbags and ecards.

Many of us will chuckle when reading this quote as we too are guilty of “studying” but not actually studying during exam time. End of year finals are a little way off, but the time to prepare is now.
