    I once swore on a essay about apartheid. My teacher loved it said it showed I really understood the situation.

    Wasn’t as blatant as a two word answer though, just one word out of several hundred.

    Bloody hell!! I should of swore in mine. There was often times when i thought a swear word would have fitted, but i resisted and changed. In fact that was about the apartheid that was shown in a poem.
    There was a kid that probably put swear words down on paper, he didnt turn up to many exams and the ones he did he got escorted in, and sat with then excorted back out.

    I think that's about right for the marking... it's better than nowt!
    I wouldnt worry about the chav that wrote it getting nito mainstream society though. they're probably either going to jail or going to the army like all the knob-heads from my school.

    in my german o-level oral exam, i was asked to tell the doctor i had diarrhea. not having a clue what the correct word was, i went for "ich habe die scheißen" ("i have the shoots"). guess who got an extra mark for use of a colloquial expression :ohmy:

    I used to have a calendar that had "my dormouse is constipated" written in German on it so I know what the opposite is. Verstopfung. That's the extent of my German knowledge. Mainly because the teacher was so plain.

    Hey Chris - that's one of the weirdest sentences I've read in a while.

    What sort of calendar was it - I need to know more!

    And I once wrote an essay at university (or "polytechnic", as it was then) about habitat creation. The body I invented to be in charge of wetland creation in Staffordshire was the Staffordshire Habitat Initiation Team, which I referred to throughout as the Staffordhire H.I.T, or the S.H.I Team.:ohmy: I don't think I got marked down, the lecturer was known for his sense of humour.
