Go to the Principal's Office!

Question: What did Paul Revere say at the end of his famous ride? If you answered "Woah!" then you're correct! At least according to this hilarious compendium of outrageous answers from the author of the national bestseller F in Exams. Celebrating the creative side of failure—from sassy mathematical solutions to hilarious reimaginings of historical events—this unabashedly silly book celebrates the creative side of failure with 250 authentic responses to common test quandaries from K-12 jokesters.

This unbelievable assortment of audacious longshots contains questions from the sweat-inducing pop quizzes of the past, but rather than drawing a blank these students took being on the spot as an opportunity to be in the spotlight! No subject is safe from snark in this amusing book full of groan-worthy gaffes supplied by class clowns across the USA and the UK. A touching, funny, and oh-so-real look at the life of the average educator, this little pick-me-up is sure to bring smiles to any student, teacher, or professor. Printed in China.

              I gave this book to my boss, an Oncologist. He was having surgery and I picked this out for him to read at the hospital so his mind wouldn't wonder too much. He let me know he and his kids read and re-read this book aloud. His only complaint.... It hurt to laugh after his operation. I'll take that.

                    I purchased this for my son, in Veterinary School, as a diversion from his intensive studies. He enjoyed it so much that he shared it with me and other family members. We enjoyed this little treatise and found it to be extraordinarily human. The logic for the answers given in some of these examples, though questionable, is very human and as such, definitely humourous. We have to be able to laugh at ourselves or we lose an important device for relaxation and amusement int his difficult world.

                      Bought this book as a thank you/Christmas gift for my husband's coworkers and Principal & Vice Principal. They are keeping it in the Teacher's lounge for everyone to share. Wanted to purchase the first in series but it was out of stock. Might purchase one for our house!

                      I bought this for my son, who is in Veterinary school. He found it hulariously funny and a good way to realax over the Christmas Vacation. It makes one wonder how people can actually do the things described in the book. It is people being human and as such, very humorous.
