Book Review: F This Test: Even More of the Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers

F This Test: Even More of the Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers
Richard Benson

Five Points West received a new book titled F This Test: Even More of the Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers by Richard Benson today. It's hilarious. It consists of totally wrong answers to college tests which actual students have given. Some were sincere, but some seemed to take it all in stride and decided to have a little fun with their answers. Here are some examples:

Which part of the Earth is directly below the crust?
The Filling.

Name a key theme in Madame Bovary.
Cows.

Give brief summary of the plot of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Jekyll & Hyde find a briefcase, and it's very strange.

What factors led to Nancy's death in Oliver Twist?
Charles Dickens killed her.

What contributed to the collapse of the Bronze Age?
Rust!

Describe a neutrino.
The opposite of an Oldtrino.

Define a supersaturated solution.
Water with extra water in it.

Give an example of a primary source. Explain why it is a primary source.
Tomato source because nearly everyone loves it.

What did an Ancient Egyptian embalmer do?
Embalmed ancient Egyptians.

And finally:
In politics, what does the term "impeachment" mean?
It's like imprisonment but with fruit.

If these examples have given you a chuckle, you might want to check out, F This Test, from the Five Points West Library.
