    Pretty generous grade. I would have given about 5 points, not bothered with the "see me," and simply failed him.

    Hah.. had seen that one before... and I'll echo some of the opinions I heard about it:
    Totally fake!
    No serious teacher would even consider grading a paper filled with slang and curse words.

    Fake, but still funny

    Ummm... Maybe you have not spent much time among some of the more liberal faculty on U.S. campuses. There are some who would give this "stream of consciousness" paper high marks for creativity.

    Well.. since it's in the internet, and I found it linked from 2 different forums with two different stories... I continue to consider it as fake.

    Sidenote: if that sh*t could get high marks for creativity....then the US edjukashinal system is surely going down the drain... If it were real just imagine how his/her CV would look like....

    That's a thesis? Goodness!

    I doubt that paper could even get very far in a high school course. How pathetic.

    That's gotta be fake. However, if it isn't, as professor I'd consider giving a -100 for wasting my time.
