Funny Student Errors

Adam G. sends these from the Midwest.

For three semesters, I was a grader for a college professor at a Christian college in Cincinnati, and some of the things freshmen type are gramatically sad but personally amusing.

For example, one student wrote in a book review that the book More Than Equals (a book about dealing with racism) was written "through the joint efforts of a black and white man." Sounds kind of "Jekyll and Hyde" to me.

Another student wrote this about Jesus: "if Jesus would have just went up and told them He was the Son of God Then he would have been charged with blasphemy and thrown in jail until he was killed." That's a lot of throwing!
