I have long been amazed at the speed of decline of ability of the average first-day university student. Not so long ago, I'd have been astounded to come across one without the ability to construct simple sentences.

Then, there's this.

I am speechless.

Hmmm...I just have to wonder if they'd have been docked for improper grammar if they'd written, "Jesus shit goddammit fucker head." I mean, seriously, we must conjugate our profanities properly, mustn't we?

The article actually included the amazing comment that he'd have been marked higher if he'd used an exclamation mark.

The worst part is, since it's being treated as a joke, there'll be ten times as many doing exactly the same next year. And they'll add punctuation, and probably pass.

Employ them? I'd avoid even having a conversation with them!
