I have only graded about 1 1/2 of the 5 classes of finals I have, but the very first one I set out to grade gave me this little gem:

"Huck Finn is not a racist book because Mark Twain was African-American."


A fellow English teacher said one of her students proclaimed on the final that Mark Twain wrote Catcher in the Rye.


I suggested we fix the Wikipedia Entry for Mark Twain because it's obviously missing some info.
