I wanna go to school in England

…So I can write essays like this.

My favorite part of the article was this:

Buckroyd told the Times that it “would be wicked to give it zero because it does show some very basic skills we are looking for, like conveying some meaning and some spelling.”

Buckroyd says the student would have received a higher mark if the phrase had been punctuated.

I’ll bet the student is kicking himself for not adding that all-important exclamation mark.

I wonder if he would have received more or less credit for adding an emoticon?
