Dumb and Dumber?

















No matter how far our exams are dumbed

down, it seems it's not far enough for today's

pupils. But rather than admit defeat in the

face of tricky questions, some decide to take

a more creative approach to their answers.

After scouring exam papers and speaking to

teachers, humorist Richard Benson has

collected the worst student howlers in a

new book. You won't know whether to laugh –

or cry!!









































































































Remember: they walk among us - and they breed.

Indeed -- and worse, they breed far too young because they think they know everything!!!!

I have a lot of sympathy for that last one!!

But optherwise, well, you do wonder what they have been doing all their school days!

I actually think these answers are pretty clever. These kids sound like writers to me.

Sadly, I see some perfect logic in those priceless answers, the first one is classic :) Good thing I didn't breed huh?

This was a good laugh and at the same time I was thinking "are they really that stupid?"

I like Travlin' Oma's comment, a very postive outlook.
