F in Exams

I love browsable nonfiction books. And browsable humor books are even better. F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers by Richard Benson is one to adore.

I think lots of us have gotten the humorous email detailing a handful of these wrong answers submitted for tests. This is a compilation of these type of emails broken down into class subjects. While I wish there was an intro by the author about HOW he got all of these sent to him, it still makes for some laugh out loud reading material.

For example, here are some from the biology section of the book.

Adam cuts his arm. Blood gushes out and is red in color. What does this show? --He's not a robot. He's a real boy!

Give an example of a smoking-related disease.-- early death

Here's my favorite from the history section:

Where was the Declaration of Independence signed? At the bottom

You like these? You should also try books like The Stupid Crook Book by Leland Gregory, Deadly Perils and how to Avoid Them by Tracey Turner, and The Hypochondriac's Pocket Guide to Horrible Diseases You Probably Already Have by Dennis DiClaudio. They are all available in our teen collections at Glendale!
