…check out F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers by Richard Benson. I probably wouldn’t have picked it up myself, but I got it as a gift and it certainly entertained.
Here are two examples from the back cover:
- What is the highest frequency noise that a human can register? Mariah Carey
- What was the main industry in Persia? Cats
A couple from inside the book:
- Who wrote The Republic and The Apology? Playdoh
- What is Sir Francis Drake known for? Sir Francis Drake circumcized the world with a 100 foot clipper
This last one unfortunately reminded me of a seventh-grade science test where I am fairly certain I answered “contraception” for some other, unknown c-word. Maybe I had just learned what it was? I have no idea…
So, all in all it wasn’t laugh-out-loud funny, but it was good, light bedtime reading that kept me smiling throughout.
