You probably still remember the horror of taking a test at school. All quivering and trembling you sat there and either scribbled the answers as fast as you could or just stared blankly at the letters-turned-hieroglyphs, understanding nothing. If it were such a case, you would probably leave the page all blank or, being the good kid that you were, try to come up with a plausible answer for a question which subjects you couldn’t understand at all. The smart kids in the list below fall in neither of the categories. These bright pupils came up with the funniest test answers, harnessing the powers of puns and their creativity. The reasons for choosing to answer the questions this way are unknown, but we have a strong feeling that the hard questions brought out some A-class smartasses out.
The tricky question, though, is if a kid answers a problem on a test in an incorrect but smart manner, should they be credited or penalized for it? Below, you can find 30 brainy and funny test answers that will make you wonder what’s better – the correct or the apt solution.
Naturally, the best-case scenario would be that one’s students would understand all of the material they’re being tested on and answer the questions correctly. But what about the argument that a strict educational environment can stifle creativity and intellectual development? For better or for worse, these test-takers either chose to create a smart and funny test answer or, when they failed to come up with the right solution for a weird question they did not understand, came up with a creative one. Should all kids be penalized for thinking outside of the box and coming up with innovative solutions to problems?
Now, don’t get us wrong – not all of these answers raise this excellent question. Some are just hilarious fails. Take a look at our compilation of funny kid test answers below!
