Good news: New required school exams make no sense.
In the story, a take-off on Aesop’s fable about the tortoise and the hare, a talking pineapple challenges a hare to a race. The other animals wager on the immobile pineapple winning — and ponder whether it’s tricking them.
When the pineapple fails to move and the rabbit wins, the animals dine on the pineapple.
Students were asked two perplexing questions: why did the animals eat the talking fruit, and which animal was wisest?
Teachers, principals and parents contacted by The News said they weren’t sure what the answers were.
It’s so confusing that Ken Jennings, the 74 time Jeopardy! champion even had no idea wtf this question was about, saying “Honestly, I’m still not particularly sure what the intended answer is. Neither am I. Neither is anyone.
I would have answered the following:
Why did the animals eat the talking pineapple?
They were pissed off at making a bad bet. like how I flip tables over when I lose at Monopoly
Which animal was wisest?
Was there an owl in the story? cuz then: the owl. always the owl. they don’t wear graduation caps all the time for nothing, ya know. if there’s no owl, then it’s the fox. duh.
