Fun things to do in a final (or a prelim) that does not matter

1. Bring a pillow. Fall asleep (or pretend to) until the last 15 minutes. 
Wake up, say "oh geez, better get cracking" and do some gibberish work. 
Turn it in a few minutes early. 

2. Get a copy of the exam, run out screaming "Andre, Andre, I've got the
secret documents!!" 

3. If it is a math/science exam, answer in essay form. If it is long
answer/essay form, answer with numbers and symbols. Be creative. Use the
integral symbol. 

4. Make paper airplanes out of the exam. Aim them at the instructor's left

5. Talk the entire way through the exam. Read questions aloud, debate your
answers with yourself out loud. If asked to stop, yell out, "I'm SOOO sure
you can hear me thinking." Then start talking about what a jerk the
instructor is. 

6. Bring cheerleaders. 

7. Walk in, get the exam, sit down. About five minutes into it, loudly say
to the instructor, "I don't understand ANY of this. I've been to every
lecture all semester long!  What's the deal? And who the hell are you?
Where's the regular guy?" 

8. Bring a Game Boy (or Game Gear, etc...). Play with the volume at max

9. On the answer sheet (book, whatever) find a new, interesting way to
refuse to answer every question. For example: I refuse to answer this
question on the grounds that it conflicts with my religious beliefs. Be

10. Bring pets. 

11. Run into the exam room looking about frantically. Breathe a sigh of
relief. Go to the instructor, say "They've found me, I have to leave the
country" and run off. 

12. Fifteen minutes into the exam, stand up, rip up all the papers into
very small pieces, throw them into the air and yell out "Merry Christmas."
If you're really daring, ask for another copy of the exam. Say you lost
the first one. Repeat this process every fifteen minutes. 

13. Do the exam with crayons, paint, or fluorescent markers. 

14. Come into the exam with a toothbrush and nothing else. 

15. Come down with a BAD case of Turet's Syndrome during the exam. Be as
vulgar as possible. 

16. Do the entire exam in another language. If you don't know one, make
one up! For math/science exams, try using Roman numerals. 

17. Bring things to throw at the instructor when s/he's not looking. Blame
it on the person nearest to you. 

18. As soon as the instructor hands you the exam, eat it. 

19. Walk into the exam with an entourage. Claim you are going to be taping
your next video during the exam. Try to get the instructor to let them
stay, be persuasive. Tell the instructor to expect a percentage of the
profits if they are allowed to stay. 

20. Every five minutes, stand up, collect all your things, move to another
seat, continue with the exam. 

21. Turn in the exam approximately 30 minutes into it. As you walk out,
start commenting on how easy it was. 

22. Do the entire exam as if it was multiple choice and true/false. If it
is a multiple choice exam, spell out interesting things (DCCAB, BABE,

23. Bring a black marker. Return the exam with all questions and answers
completely blacked out. 

24. Get the exam. Twenty minutes into it, throw your papers down
violently, scream out "Screw this!" and walk out triumphantly. 

25. Arrange a protest before the exam starts (i.e. Threaten the instructor
that whether or not everyone's done, they are all leaving after one hour
to go drink). 

26. Show up completely drunk. (Completely drunk means at some point during
the exam, you should start crying for mommy). 

27. Every now and then, clap twice rapidly. If the instructor asks why,
tell him/her in a very derogatory tone, "the light bulb that goes on above
my head when I get an idea is hooked up to a clapper. DUH!" 

28. Comment on how sexy the instructor is looking that day. 

29. Come to the exam wearing a black cloak. After about 30 minutes, put on
a white mask and start yelling "I'm here, the phantom of the opera", until
they drag you away. 

30. Go to an exam for a class you have no clue about, where you know the
class is very small, and the instructor would recognize you if you
belonged. Claim that you have been to every lecture. Fight for your right
to take the exam. 

31. Upon receiving the exam, look it over, while laughing loudly, say "you
don't really expect me to waste my time on this drivel? Days of our Lives
is on!!!" 

32. Bring a water pistol with you. Nuff said. 

33. From the moment the exam begins, hum the theme to Jeopardy. Ignore the
instructor's requests for you to stop. When they finally get you to leave
one way or another, begin whistling the theme to the Bridge on the River

34. Start a brawl in the middle of the exam. 

35. If the exam is math/science related, make up the longest proofs you
could possibly think of. Get pi and imaginary numbers into most equations. 

36. Come in wearing a full knight's outfit, complete with sword and

37. Bring a friend to give you a back massage the entire way through the
exam. Insist this person is needed, because you have bad circulation. 

38. Bring cheat sheets FROM ANOTHER CLASS (make sure this is obvious... 
like history notes for a calculus exam... otherwise you're not just
failing, you're getting kicked out too)  and staple them to the exam with
the comment "Please use the attached notes for references as you see fit." 

39. When you walk in, complain about the heat. Strip. 

40. After you get the exam, call the instructor over, point to any
question, ask for the answer. Try to work it out of him/her. 

41. One word: Wrestlemania. 

42. Bring balloons, blow them up, start throwing them around like they do
before concerts start. 

43. Play frisbee with a friend at the other side of the room. 

44. Bring some large, cumbersome, ugly idol. Put it right next to you. 
Pray to it often. Consider a small sacrifice. 

45. Get deliveries of candy, flowers, balloons, telegrams, etc... sent to
you every few minutes throughout the exam. 

46. During the exam, take apart everything around you. Desks, chairs,
anything you can reach. 

47. Complete the exam with everything you write being backwards at a 90
degree angle. 

48. Bring a musical instrument with you, play various tunes. If you are
asked to stop, say "it helps me think." Bring a copy of the Student
Handbook with you, challenging the instructor to find the section on
musical instruments during finals. Don't forget to use the phrase, "Told
you so". 

50. Answer the exam with the "Top Ten Reasons Why Professor xxxx Sucks"
