Family Matters

This Thanksgiving, I’m giving thanks for my younger brother, who always manages to make me laugh. Below is a scan of a quiz he took during his first year at NYU. He hadn’t been to the class in a few days and showed up on the day of a pop quiz. Rather than bowing out and taking the resulting zero, he stayed and took the quiz. His wise ass answers don’t bother to hide the fact that he was unprepared. I’ve had this scan for about 9 years now. This is one of my favorite things and is, perhaps, one of the best ways for me to describe my brother. This is an introduction to my brother’s sarcastic humor for people who have not met him.

I still laugh every time I see this quiz.


i'll let you know when i figure it out.


  1. Your brother is hilarious. I also love the story from a few years ago about the rubber band on his wrist “supporting all causes”. 🙂

  2. And this is who I hired for my attorney for the biggest, most important case of my life!!! What Chutzpah!!!!! I hope he harnesses it for me in my case!
