I would recommend reading this book in small doses. A page or two, here and there, to lighten your mood. Otherwise it does get a bit repetitious.
The book also would make one think about test question creation. Some of the questions are so poorly worded the snarky student answer is almost expected.
I would highly recommend this book to any teacher.
What instrument do you use to measure temperature? A trombone.
Name an environmental side effect of burning fossil fuels. Fire.
Explain the word "genome." It is an abbreviation of the two words: Gender and Gnome.
Name the wife of Orpheus, whom he attempted to save from the underworld. Mrs. Orpheus.
Who was Solomon? He was a very popular man with 700 wives and 300 porcupines.
What was the main industry in Persia? Cats.
Claire used good body language at a job interview. Can you think of three examples of good body language that Claire may have used?
1. Pole dancing
2. The Moonwalk
3. The Bolero
Finally my favorite question is found in the math section where the teacher had written "Construct a rectangle with sides Y and ends Z." This not being to the taste of the student, he (or she) scratched out all but the first two words of the question and rewrote it to read: "Construct a banana car." What followed was a very interesting drawing of a banana car and the line "I want to retake this test." I'll bet.
The questions and answers in the book vary in humorous content, and there are many examples circulating on the Internet that I consider to be at least as good as most of these. Still, for anyone who has ever been dumbfounded by a test question and decided to give a ludicrous answer, or especially for teachers who have seen more ridiculous answers than they can count, this book is worth a quick read.
This book is a gem, or rather a collection of gems. I recommend not reading it in one sitting, but flipping to a random page or two and getting your laughs. Guaranteed to elevate the crabbiest of moods, this book is a coffee-table essential, and can really get a dinner party going.
The banana car has definitely come to represent this book, but I assure you that the book is replete with even funnier examples.
Just to whet your appetite, from the "Business and Technology" section:
Q: What happens during a census?
A: During the census a man goes from door to door and increases the population.
I am very glad I bought this book, and very regretful that I did not become a federal census bureau employee.
Probably a book I will shove off to someone else as a last minute gift....
