Failing Miserably Can Be Funny

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re going to fail, might as well fail in the funniest way possible.

That’s the idea behind, a website that compiles essays and tests taken by high school and college students that show their ridiculous answers to questions they obviously had no clue how to answer.

For example, one sarcastic student responded “ice” to a test question that asked “what is hard water?” while another student claims poet Walt Whitman was a 3,000-year-old child molester who “believed the only good Chinaman was a dead Chinaman.”

Site creator, who goes by “Huffer,” says the page was inspired by a friend who teaches middle school and would get silly responses from confused students on tests.

In discovering the hilarious exams, Huffer says it proves that failing in a funny way sometimes beats getting an A.

He says, “I hope this doesn’t encourage students to fail just for laughs, but if you don’t know the answer, why not have fun?”
