  1. This is one hang of a way to start off my Friday Ted. I have been laughing so much my boss wants to know what the joke is? You are a star for posting these, they are EXCELLENT!! Thanks. All I can say is I am glad they not my students on the other hand, they seem to have a great sense of humor so maybe all is not lost. LOL!! LOL!! LOL!!

  2. Thanks, Ted. You tested me, alright. You tested my ability to laugh so hard I shed tears all-the-while being quiet enough not to disturb my co-workers! I got an A+

  3. Yeah. There was a test I had recently where the instructor asked something about something random he passed around the room.

    I didn’t remember something about the label so I just drew a ninja fighting an Anomolocaris.

    Haven’t gotten the test back yet.

  4. How funny!!! I would never even know what some of the questions were about, but loved the answers. We all need to keep our sense of humor. no matter what!

  5. So funny!
    When I first saw these, my mom and I laughed all day!
    The other day I had a mid term exam/test and I went thinking at all the smart-mouthed answers I could write instead of the ones I studied!
