F- is most unusual

The world's first F- has been given, to a student at George Washington University who handed in an assignment three years late.

"Ordinarily, we don't give F-'s," said visiting teacher Minny McGonagall. "But I had to take something off for being so very late."

The name of the student has not been revealed. So, naturally, the whole school knows.

"The student was assigned to transform a quagmire into a garden with an exit path," McGonagall said. "The student seemed to think it was to write a two-page outline of how to sink further into the quagmire."

"I would have given partial credit just for an exit path," McGonagall said.

McGonagall read a section from the student's submission to reporters.

"To all who profit from this war," wrote the student, "I make you this pledge: America will not run on the faces of dead American soldiers so long as I am your commander-in-chef."

"This student," McGonagall said, "Clearly has difficulties with language and spelling. The latter, especially, is quite important in my class."

Members of the Slytherin Party responded quickly to the grade.

"The teacher's grading was deeply irresponsible," said Slytherin Party spokesperson Draco McClellan.
