18 Funny Homework Answers from Kids Who Are Going Places

These snarky students are smart alecks at heart

Via Imgur

When you're a student, homework is an unavoidable fact of life. Kids these days often face hours of homework assignments each week—it's no wonder that some of their answers turn out a little snarky. 

Lucky for us, the funniest homework answers often end up on the Internet, courtesy of amused parents or teachers. Some of these students are being deliberately funny; others may very well be trying (and failing) to find the right answer. We think every single one of them deserves a place in the Smart Aleck Hall of Fame.

Again, this answer isn't even wrong. It's technically totally, 100% correct! Maybe the teacher needs to rethink those test questions.

(Nah, not really.)

"April Ham Lincoln."

Clearly, this kid's family has some work to do in that department.

She Deserves Extra Credit

Via Reddit

We'll end on a positive note. This student followed directions to the letter and did exactly what she was told to do:

"Write a story to go with this picture. Use capitals and punctuation."

She not only created a funny story about this really, really weird picture of a cat overseeing a pile of hot dogs, but she also used CAPITALS and lots of exclamation points. Who cares what the teacher thought — this kid deserves an A+!
