Planes, Trains and Plantains: The Story of Oedipus

For all my teacher buddies out there, take a gander at what surely must be the finest analysis of Oedipus Rex ever put to paper by a high school student.

The teacher, either out of a sense of excellent deadpan comedy or educational fatigue, goes through the entire thing marking every swear word, reiterating the ban on using photos (e.g. of Dr. Dre, Lou Gherig and lube) and noting a deduction for improper font size. But my favorite part is page 4, where the student simply inserted a blank sheet.

And the grade: D-. Is it even possible to get an F if you turn in the assignment? (Found via Linkbunnies)

  2. This paper was written by a college student, and the person who graded the paper was the student’s friend, not his teacher.
    With that said, it’s still an amazing paper.

  3. There’s a big selection of intricacy linked to these kinds of games, by incorporating obtaining sophisticated missions with plenty of aims, yet others staying straightforward “shoot-em-up” video games. Cardstock planes …Paper Plane Game

  4. I figured it was an intentional jab at the teacher, considering the teacher’s horrible, childish handwriting and misspelling, and the fact that they gave the paper a passing grade. Either way, this is one of the funniest things I have ever, ever read, ever.
