Examination Howlers


I think Tony Blair declared the top three priorities of his government were to be "Education, Education and Education". Ever wonder where your tax deductions went when exam students come up with this stuff?

Vacuum: A large empty space where the Pope lives.

Magnets: May be found crawling over dead cats.

The Equator: A lion running around the Earth and through Africa.

Blood flows down one leg and up the other.

Artificial Insemination: When the farmer does it to the cow instead of the bull.

Germination: The process of becoming a German.

Mushrooms are umbrella-shaped because they grow in damp places.

Trees break wind for up to 200 yards.

Water is composed of two gins, Oxygin and Hydrogin. Oxygin is pure gin and hydrogin is gin and water.

Henry VIII helped Anne Boleyn to do the ironing. (The student had a text book which said 'The king pressed his suit')!

A Skeleton: What is left after the insides have been taken out and the outsides have been taken off. The purpose of the skeleton is something to hitch meat to.
