Last week I gave a challenge to say the alphabet backwards: Fun Friday Need help? Let me know.
What is the funniest answer you ever put on a test? I saw this this example years ago, and it always makes me laugh.
In college, I used to sign my tests with a coffee ring. It started when one time my coffee dribbled down my disposable Styrofoam cup-
Oh, sorry. Let me explain. A long time ago, people used to carry hot beverages in containers made from petroleum, that when properly discarded on the side of the road, would rapidly disintegrate over the course of 1000 years.
Oh! Like the disposable masks and latex gloves?
So, back to the story. My professor commented that he can always spot my tests and assignments from the stain in the corner. I took that as a challenge, and never signed my name again in that class.
Which reminds me of a joke.
A university professor tells the class that time is up for the exam. As students place their papers on the desk as they file out of class, on student continues to write. After a few minutes, the student walks to the front.
“I can’t accept the exam, since you continued after time had expired,” the professor said.
“Do you know my name?” the student asked.
“I can look it up.”
The student promptly slid the paper into the middle of the pile.
OK. Not that funny. Tell me your funniest school experience.
