I remember it like it was yesterday: My nose was running like a faucet, and the pointy end of a magenta crayon was hanging out of my face.
“Madeline…did you stuff a crayon up your nose?” Mom asked. “Doh,” I said. “No?” Mom replied. “Doh.” But the jig was most certainly up. Off to the doctor’s office I went, but it’s not like little me enjoyed lying. I just had less than no idea how to be a person. (I still don’t, but that’s a different story for a different day.)
And that’s something this little guy knows a thing or two about. When he got a hankering from some sweets one day, he took to a jar of sprinkles with reckless, youthful abandon. But when Mom asked him where they all went, he assured her with the utmost conviction that he had no idea what she was talking about.
The only problem? An incriminating sprinkle-stache.
If your parents or family have ever complained about your time as a child, take that as a compliment. The hardest children to raise are often the most clever; they can just outwit their parents, making life hard for them. Take these kids for example. They knew what their teachers wanted them to do… but they decided to do something way more awesome. Most adults wouldn’t be able to think of responses that are this witty or clever. Even though these are the wrong answers, I would have given theses kids an A+.
1.) An understandable solution to the formula.
2.) Give them points for creativity. C’MON.
3.) A valid possibility.
5.) Clever girl.
6.) What a straight shooter.
7.) … she isn’t WRONG.
9.) Someone has Katniss Everdeen on the brain.
10.) It’s still a “beer law.”
11.) ALSO ACCURATE.
12.) Oh how I hope they got credit for this…
13.) TOTALLY, dude.
15.) You were all thinking it.
16.) And you marked it WRONG?
17.) This kid knows his stuff.
19.) The flair stars add credibility.
20.) Bruce Willis would get the job done.
21.) I hope he followed that answer with a mic drop.
(H/T Life Buzz) Those teachers must have had a difficult time marking their answers as “wrong.” Even if the kids didn’t study or didn’t know the answer, they were still obviously clever. Gold stars shouldn’t just be for successfully answering a question, they should also be awarded for sharp wit and sarcasm.
