  • D) Ohio State UniversitySubmitted by Josh

    The professor just told the class that for our next quiz we would have to arrange a harmony to The Star Spangled Banner…

    Patriot: Wait, is that the "Oh say can you see"?

  • E) Colorado State UniversitySubmitted by Greg

    Background story: We have a quiz every Wednesday about a continent, or part of it. We have to label countries for extra-credit points. We can either take the test or write a one page paper about something in that region. We did North Africa last week, and the professor handed back the papers.

    Professor: Here, you might want to hand this in when we do the Middle East.

    The Brilliance: Huh?

    Professor: You wrote about Afghanistan…

    The Brilliance: That's in Africa, right? It's in Iraq, right?
