WTF Friday: The SAT Now Covers Reality TV
Based on the 45 spin-offs of Real Housewives and the 65 Kardashian specials and the fact that Snooki is employable, it’s more than clear that America is lowering their standards. But have we finally lowered them too much? The SAT is now testing students on their reality TV knowledge. Now, before you throw your computer out the window and buy your plane ticket to Canada, remain calm. They have not replaced the math section with a Top Chef questionnaire. Rather, they asked an open-ended essay question about reality television.
Naturally the kids that took the SAT the most seriously, the ones that have been studying for months, the ones that carried around their 45-pound practice test book everywhere, the ones that started having wet dreams about their SAT tutor, have not been watching too much reality TV. So you can only imagine how many Number Two pencils were broken in frustration.
So in conclusion, America is screwed. When it comes time for your morbidly-obese children to take the SATs in 2070, they’ll probably be tweeting in their answers.
