7th grader gets perfect score in exam for writing 'legit' funny joke

A teacher in the United States got very amused while checking papers recently, thanks to the witty and humorous answer of her seventh grader-student.

Evelyn Lizette shared on Twitter last Monday, Oct 15, a part of the exam she gave the students, asking them to tell a joke for one point. One of her students nailed this part of the exam with two simple words: "Our president."

"Grading papers. This legit made my night," Lizette posted on the social media site, even tagging US President Donald Trump. Her post quickly went viral, with over 6,000 retweets and almost 25,000 likes, as of this writing.

Some netizens took notice of the student's answer, such as ss (@shasimss) who wondered how old is the student, to which Lizette answered, "7th grader. Smart little guy."

However, one netizen, trump's BOSS (@NeverTrump1214), was a bit concerned, "Careful… I totally agree, but this could cause you trouble."

"I didn't make the question political. He did," replied the teacher.
