Some kids are often just too smart for their own good, and they’re not afraid to show it. These smartass test answers, then, are no doubt a chronic annoyance for their exasperated teachers – but for the rest of us, they’re hilarious. Take this wise youngster, for instance; they already know that advocating violence against animals is a dangerous lesson to teach kids. You have to wonder which school board thought that example would be a good idea, though…
Well, unless modern medicine makes some giant leaps forward in the next century – or he becomes the world’s oldest man – Warren technically isn’t wrong. Perhaps the question needs a little work?
Kids often don’t have the firmest grasp on what it means to take something a little too literally. Still, at least this one clearly knows his alphabet.
That’s some sage advice right there. If time travel ever gets invented, let’s send this kid back first; he’s clearly got it covered.
Hopefully the teacher saw the funny side on this one. After all, the kid’s obviously a supersleuth in the making – why stamp on their dream of becoming the world’s greatest detective?
Seems sensible. How often do you see a four-foot long football, anyway? Maybe the child behind this answer had just gotten too used to having to show their working.
This one may have actually taken more effort than just writing out the essay in the first place. Then again, if the Chinese letters make sense, then this youngster definitely deserves extra credit.
It sure did. To be fair, though, this is the most open-ended test question we’ve ever seen. Perhaps the school should’ve given them points for creativity…
This young girl really does give the rest of us “hope” that imagination has not been completely crushed by the modern schooling system. Just look at her wonderful names; does anyone else now want to call their own kid “Tedison”?
This guilty admission may be comedy gold, but at least Frankie’s an honest kid. We can only hope, then, that he grows up to achieve something a little more than being a “freeloader.”
Technically, she’s correct. And isn’t that the best kind of correct? Well, the teacher probably doesn’t think so, but we’re on the kid’s side here…
Kids can be so cruel. Thankfully, that callousness is balanced out with a hefty dose of hilarity. And let’s be straight: Tony probably is a big nerd…
The problem with open-ended questions is once again laid bare. The examiner was asking for this one, really; what did they expect?
The terrifying truth about giraffes has finally been discovered. Pray you never meet one in the wild; it may well be the last thing you do.
Another classic case of literal misinterpretation. Either that, or this child has given up on their school career. We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume it’s the former…
This little one has a bright future as a prison architect ahead of them. Though what this poor plant did to deserve such treatment we’ll never know.
Now this is a refreshing outlook. Why whine and wail about something as simple as a scratch? Just pick yourself up and, yes, get on with it. This kid is going places.
The teacher’s reaction to this is almost as funny as the youngster’s smartass answer. Judging by how far down the red cross is, it took whoever was marking it quite a while to cotton on.
School can be hard on kids; some more than others. This child might have only had one word with which to express his utter contempt for his education, but the giant capital letters and shaded lines just about get the point across.
Really, this kid should get top marks just for understanding the complex socio-political system that is communism. And, within the boundaries of the question, they’re technically correct anyway. Good work!
