Funny Test Answers: The Collection

Today I present my collection of Funny Test Answers. They’re real, they’re fresh, and they’re hilarious. So lighten up and enjoy ‘em.

As a middle school teacher, many of these come from my own classroom, but I’m not above collecting funny test answers from other teachers. So I’ve decided to make this post an ongoing collection of funny student stuff. Most of it will be funny test or exam answers, but I’m certainly not going to pick nits here.

So stop back often, I’ll be updating this as I acquire things.
Funny Test Answer math
This post is broken into 3 parts:

  • Funny student answers of my own (written or oral)
  • Links to funny answers I find, and
  • Examples of funny test answers I’ve found on the internet (pictures).

I’ve been saying for awhile that I should start collecting more examples student work. It can be pretty amusing. Just think what we’d be missing if some quick thinking professor or teacher hadn’t thought to capture these funny writing samples, or these funny test answers before handing them back. I’m certainly glad I captured these humorous examples of student work.

So without further ado . . .

Funny Test Answers of my own:

Treasure Island Quiz Pt I

The Test Question: What Killed Billy Bones?

Funny Student Test Answer:

Billy Bones (a.ka-the captain), died of a stroke. It was most likely caused by drinking too much rum, believe it or not. Just goes to show that doctors are always right. Except when they leave medical instruments in your stomach after performing gastric bypass surgery.

The Exam Question: What is a “miscreant”?
Funny Test Answer:

A miscreant is someone who behaves badly. Like Shamoo, when he purposely lands on top of his trainer because he is having a bad day. Pirates would also be a good example.

The Test Question: How would you characterize Jim so far?
Funny Exam Answer:

Jim, so far, seems to be an all-around good guy. Honest, nice, basically what every girl is looking for in a boyfriend.

Treasure Island Quiz Pt III

The Test Question: Describe what a quay is.

Funny Student Test Answer:

A quay is a baby quail that has leopard spots and is known for its skills in magic and mind reading.

Question: What surprised Jim at the Spy Glass Inn?
Funny Exam Answer:

While Jim was at the Spy Glass Inn, he was very surprised to find out that he had a very small freckle on the tip of his muscular man elbow.

Treasure Island Quiz Pt VI

The Question: What does Jim reveal to the pirates when he is asked to choose between joining them or not?

Funny Student Test Answer:

What Jim reveals to the pirates is that he doesn’t want to join them because they’re fat and have no lives.

Name the area on the map near Ben Gunn’s cave where the gig will beach.

I didn’t understand the question. I believe it to be worded badly. Therefor I don’t think you should take points off. But I think the answer is the Gallows.

Another funny answer to the same question:

The area on the map near Ben Gunn’s cave was . . . I have no idea. Because, yeah, I don’t know, and wait. . . it was an X on the map where he was going.

Why does Jim take “French leave” from the stockade (2 reasons).

Jim tells them that he won’t be in their group because they suck, pretty much!

Looking for more funny stuff?

That wasn’t enough for you? You want more silliness? Well, I’ll keep a weather eye out for more silly answers (and maybe a few visitors would also like to contribute). I’ll post ‘em here when I get ‘em.

But until then I’ve got a few related links to share. Check ‘em out if you have a few minutes and you want a good laugh. I can’t vouch for the authenticity of any of this, but, like I said, if you’ve got the time on your hands anyway–some of it’s pretty funny. . .

    Links to More Funny Test Answers

  • More silly student test answers. There is some overlap with the link I provided above, but some unique content as well.
  • These funny exam answers are supposed to be actual responses to driver’s exam questions. Personally I find these a bit hard to believe.
  • This series of funny test answers actually illustrates a great story about Niels Bohr, “the only person from Denmark to win the Nobel prize for Physics.” The author of this blog obviously plagiarized this because I’ve found the same exact story (same exact wording) on other websites. I probably shouldn’t even link to this blogger because he didn’t bother to give credit to who/where ever he found it–but I’m too lazy right now to find another source. Plus this guy also has a pretty good collection of funny exam answers on the rest of his site–even if he is ripping it off.
  • Ok. So these aren’t answers from students, but excuses written by parents for kids that missed school or have special needs or circumstances. I’ve seen this before but it’s still pretty funny. This, as ridiculous as much of it is, I do believe. I’ve read too much adult writing not to.
  • I think these funny questions and responses are best read out loud–even if you’re by yourself. Or maybe that’s just my auditory quirk. Anyway, this doesn’t have anything to do with school, but it does relate to presentation and language. It’s a list of things that have been said in court. Some of the stuff that comes out of the lawyers mouths is hilarious. A quick example:

Lawyer: “When he went, had you gone and had she, if she wanted to and were able, for the time being excluding all the restraints on her not to go, gone also, would he have brought you, meaning you and she, with him to the
station?”

  • Alright, and finally (for now anyway), I think I might capture a few of these funny exam images and use them randomly in tests, quizzes or assignments that I give in the future–just to see what kind of response I get. Just ignore the joke about blonds.

So like I said, there you have my collection of funny quizzes, jokes, and all kinds of hilarious stuff. If you’d like to try another fun couple of quizzes there are lots of them. Some are about superheros, some about nerds, some personality quizzes will even tell you what kind of exciting or silly person you are. Look elsewhere on my site for more fun jokes and funny quizzes about superheros.

  1. Wow. Such deep, thoughful answers for Stevenson’s work.

    Yeah, I know. You win some, you lose some.
    Thanks again Kenz

  2. ha, being a teacher must be great. I used to work at my local community center and the kids were really great! On a related note – I don’t know if you’ve heard of This American Life on NPR – but This American Life had this great feature on Kid Logic. Kids come to illogical conclusions logically.

    Hey New York,

    Thank you so much! I checked out the “This Life” link and now I can’t wait to listen to some of them. I’d never heard of that. Sounds great though.

    Thanks again for stopping!

  3. Hey Bud hows it goin i miss last year what good times we had in class with you!

  4. It does scare me. It is a shame how little work and thought is contributed by many students.
    What they fail to understand is, this is the easy stuff, wait until they get in the work place.

    Hi Mark,

    Yeah, sometimes it is a shame. But to be honest with you, sometimes–when a kid’s parents are going through a divorce, or one of them is a drunk, or the sister is pregnant at 16, or they’re hungry and don’t have any money in their lunch account –we have to celebrate that they even tried.

    Questions about a novel that was written 100 years ago (no matter how good your teacher says it is) just aren’t relevant.

    As a teacher, sometimes you know who is dealing with the gunk of an icky family or social life. But most of the time you just don’t.

    I’m kind of like a cook that way. I just keep serving it up. Different dishes. Shoot for variety. But I always sprinkle in just a bit of love. Most of ‘em can’t taste the love, and many will never know it was in there.

    But I always include just a dash of it in all my recipies/units/lessons–because it’s the one thing I know for sure will never hurt.

    Chris

  5. It is a little alarming how cheeky some of these kids are. They will someday be running the world (so to speak) and they can’t remember simple things like this. Maybe it’s just cool to be inattentive and they’ll get over it though.
    WC

    Yep, cheeky is a good word for it.

  6. i now how to ask the ghost its a trick but i will not tell it nanana

  7. Just passing by and whising you a very nice day!

  8. Loved your kids’ responses, especially the X on the map.

    Thanks Tom. Love your new theme btw. Cool car dude!

  9. I think that this page is kinda pointless… we all have our ups and downs ona test. You win some and you lose some. But nobody no matter how funny there answer might be would want it posted on the internet for the whole world to read! TAKE EM OFF!
    It’s the right thing to do…

  10. That’s outstanding. God only know what my tests must have looked like.

  11. Wow I did not realize that kids today are still using their imaginations. You have to admit, they could of left the questions unanswered. One would think with all the video games out there that our kids would loose their creativity. Although, I am hoping my daughter answered all the questions correctly. LMAO

  12. i like it there i said somthing nice

  13. What’s the big deal? Some of these answers are right, and they are just elaborated on. Like the Shamoo one. That is a perfectly right answer! Who are you johnny rainclouds to nit pick if they just want to have a lttle fun? Hi Mr. Wondra! And by the way, me and my friend don’t like how people critisize you on here. Yeah, I know about freedom of speech and whatnot, but you have done nothing wrong as far as i can account for. Except for Treasure Island. Uhhggg… don’t even get me started on Treasure Island!

    B-Skillet,

    When are you going to start your own blog, so I can shower you with my wisdom in your very own comments section?

    C’mon. Seriously. You’re a smart kid. You’ve got a voice. Use it.

    Aaahhemmm
    That wasn’t just B-Slice Mr. double ya.

    Just kidding, but it seriously wasn’t.

    Ahh! Only one more day of break!

    Shamoo

  15. Oh, and I agree wich you.

  16. Some of the time I find that even though I know the right answer the question is so condescendingly easy (or I’m just bored) so I make up something funny instead – or if I don’t know it

    Quite often I’ll put the right answer as well though

    In more essay-type exams its also possible to write an answer that’s technically right and will get the marks, but is simultaneously mocking the question, therein lies an art form

  17. That is really funny that you didn’t know “Shamoo” and I are friends. Yeah, we kind of are an unlikely pair. I’m beautiful and popular and she is, ahem, smart…(kidding L-Grill!) I would love to start my own blog, but much like Shamoo’s mom, mi madre is very paranoid about internet safety. I was like,”Mom,no one would want to abduct me anyway!” You know what I’m so proud of? Having my spooky project on your blog. It’s truly an honor Mr.Wondra. So keep up with your mad blogging skills and I’ll see you tomorrow, I’m ready for my “The Outsiders” spot check.
    -B-SKILLET
    (This is a disclaimer to all the potential pedefiles out there: I’m not really beautiful,I look like Chuck Norris in drag, I have mad cow disease, and I pee on the floors, for real though)

  18. Well, you have…. fangs! Haha! (Inside joke).

    I know! Isn’t it SSSOOO great to be on Mr. double ya’s blog! I was quite happy indeed. (I wrote the first 4 answers on ‘funny test anwers’, thank you very much)

    And I’m ready for my “Treasure Island” (gag) spotcheck too.

  19. Hey Chris Wondra, i just wanted to say good job on the Peter answers site. That site is wicked to play a trick on someone. Today a guy showed my class and everyone was just freaking out. Haha i love it, anyways your brilliant!

  20. Hello! Good Site! Thanks you! gcuyimeopp

  21. Wow Chris, you sure have some funny students… Have you ever played Pong? S’cool.

  22. Congratulations, I believe you have completely missed the concept that the answers (like the “find x” for example) are supposed to be funny. Keep up the good work (*that was sarcasm)

  23. Mr. Wondra,

    I am still insanely proud of this. For realz. I miss 8th grade.

    Those are some great answers and I am glad they are not mine.
