Teacher one-ups student's funny exam answer Published: January 10, 2014

This recent Reddit thread revealed one of the best student/teacher exchanges we've ever seen. The thread was titled "We asked our biology teacher for the funniest answer someone has put on a test, we were not disappointed" -- and trust us, you won't be either.

Yahoo Screen reports the student's answer begins, "I have to be honest with you. I didn't go over this problem last night and didn't pay attention to it in class yesterday. I do not care about this. I don't even like science." The gutsy student goes on to ask for dating advice; he's been texting with a girl and knows she thinks he's cute. How, he asks his teacher, should he strike up a conversation?

In response to the absurd answer, somehow Mr J. manages to give both biology and dating advice. "Impress her by talking about how atmospheric nitrogen can be used to age artifacts. Works for me every time. - Mr. J"
