A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for a homework assignment.

After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:

Dear Ms. Davis,

I want to be very clear on my child’s illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This photo is of me selling a shovel.

You know, if I was a teacher I’d have to give some of these credit because they do, in fact, answer the question. I value the creativity.

I think I saw an application of #2B on the Coyote and Roadrunner show. Unfortunately for the coyote, the roadrunner’s spring at the bottom of the long gutter didn’t obey conservation of energy, and the rock came all the way back up past the top and nailed the coyote.

They don’t get any better in college either.
During my year as a TA I had to read some really bad answers.
q: What is bronze made of a: Diluted gold
q: What did the Athenian use to build their fleet a: Silver from the [Larium] mines (this was a correct answer)
followup q: What were the ships made of a: silver from the mines.
These were classics that I don’t think I’ll ever forget.

Worst was the bonus questions in a Roman archaeology class.
They were 1. What is the color of Napolean’s white horse. 2.Who is buried in Grant’s tomb? (Mrs grant would have been accepted). 3. What holiday are we about to celebrate? (exam was given the day before Easter break). and 4. What class is this? which was actually on the top of the front of the exam.
Only 11 people out of a class of 150 actually got all of them correct.

A very close friend of mine taught a high school shop and on a test he asked “on what stroke does a file cut?”
The funniest answer was “on the thirty-second stroke”

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
I took a calculus final with the instruction written on the test were “read all of the questions, pick one to answer, sign you name, give yourself an A, turn in the test paper, and leave the room quietly”.
It was amazing how few people actually read the complete instructions. And I was not one of them!

I had to take one once on the aztec gods which were originally all designated with single letters A-Z. The professor handed out a paper with 20 of the gods in 2 rows, marked off 10 and we had to name them. I figured the prof couldn’t really expect the class to memorize all the aztec names nor to try and actually memorize over 20 god images out of context. Therefore I assumed they were all in alphabetical order and the ones marked were whichever was next in line. My A was the only passing grade on the exam.
