CHOCO-QUIZ TIME!

Quiet down, boys and girls. I just received this letter from the School Bored:

Dear Mrs. Life by Chocolate,

We noticed that your students' standardized test scores could not be found. We searched well below the mean, median, and mode. Look lady, it does not suffice to send us their cute profile pictures and tell us how smart they are for following your silly blog. No, no. You must administer the following quiz pronto. Otherwise, we'll cut you off of that nasty chocolate pudding served in the school cafeteria. We know you like that stuff.

Sincerely,
Superintendent Dwayne Schneider

Well, I always thought Dwayne was a sexy superintendent, so I'm going to hit you up with this quiz. Sharpen those #2 pencils, or take your typewriters out. There will be no cheating. You can send your answers to my email or drop them off in the comments section. Good luck.

  1. I'm glad you threw in the one about Saudi Arabia. Dating isn't allowed there, so if they celebrate Valentine's Day they must have a unique way of doing it. Maybe they just eat chocolate all day.

    You too, Betty.

    Thanks to everyone who turned in your tests. At first glance, I'm impressed with your choco-smarts. I'm going to give the - uh - slower students some time to finish up. Have a good recess. xo

  23. Any last exams, students?

    Wake up in the back row there!

    Marlene, I dismissed you for recess hours ago. Why are you sitting there, passing notes?

    No, SirT, you can't convince me to jump into a chocolate bath with you. Try the lunch aide.

    Run along now. Recess is almost over.

  25. Who cares about this stuff! I just want some delicious chocolate in my tummy now!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Pearl, nice try, sweetie. Go sit back down with your tutor now. xo

    I know, Kristina. Me too. The state makes me do it. These tests are ridiculous. Aren't they? Here, have some chocolate. xo

  27. What is the answer to that last question. Some of these I knew...but I'm curious about the child exploitation. That makes me sad.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It is sad, Jenny. Hershey's continues doing business with plantations in the Ivory Coast known to exploit children. The details are quite horrifying. The company's been hush-hush about it all. Meanwhile, other chocolate companies are making good changes by going fair trade and/or taking their business elsewhere. xo
