If you're bad at school and worse at cheating, you're in a bind. As Dirty Harry opined, "A man's got to know his limitations." The seventh-grader in question did not.

Your humble narrator has unearthed the odd document or two, but never one as hilarious as this. You can see it below -- but it requires an explanation.

A colleague who teaches junior high flunked said student -- which required him to take his report card home, display it to a parent, and return with a signature. We can vouch, with 100 percent certainty, that the paper below is what the student saw fit to hand back to his teacher.

Unsurprisingly, this masterful attempt at forgery did not pass muster. When asked whether he did not know his mother's first name, the student said he did -- but was not capable of signing it in script. He was made to phone his mother, reveal his wrongdoing, and apologize.

The original of this document is now framed on a wall of the teacher's home.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
