Apparently the following is a legitimate math question being asked to fourth graders somewhere in Iowa right now. Mind-blowing, because it appears to be a verbal reasoning exercise that’s like straight out of the fucking LSAT. It was shared to Facebook by a mom who got a good laugh out of her daughter’s response about why she couldn’t answer the question…other than because it’s difficult as anything.
I can’t answer this problem because my mom says according to girl code you shouldn’t date a friend’s ex-boyfriend.
BOOM, little girl dropping the hammer with the #GirlCode! Making this common core question like totally irrelavant, duh, because like that’s not what best girlfriends do! But on a real note, what the hell kind of a question is this for a FOURTH GRADER!? Bunch of promiscuous high schoolers running around getting their kicks in and you want my daughter to know who Frank nailed on his last date? Fuck that, I’m more interested in the gossip about why Louise dumped Ron’s ass! Teacher honestly has no choice but to mark this answer correct. Girl Code trumping everything.
For what it’s worth, though, I think Frank’s last date was with Mary.
