There is a strange scene in Billy Madison where Billy is cleaning erasers for one of his teachers -- Miss Lippy, a hippy-like lady who teaches an elementary class -- and Miss Lippy puts a big dab of paste right on her face. The scene ends right after she does this.

Why does Miss Lippy put paste on her face?

Was she high on chalk dust? Really, no clue. Might be in-line with the "Little Person" in Happy Gilmore's Happy Place ... No real explanation, it's just there to make you laugh while scratching your head. (At least everything that I've heard hasn't had a good explanation for the Little Person!) –  Paulster2 Feb 9 at 0:31

I agree with @Paulster2 - just to make you laugh while scratching your head. But I want to add that Billy comes back to the classroom while the teacher is performing a tortured dance of anguish, so I think the paste on her face is just another level of her psychosis. Adam Sandler thinks it's funny to show that a sweet Kindergarten teacher has this troubled psychological condition underneath it all. (And I remember laughing at the paste on the face, so I must think it's funny too!)
