    Hey guys... just wondering if this joke in my US politics exam was acceptable...

    "there is a standing joke in america which reflects the citizens understanding of the lack of leadership with whats the opposite of progress? congress".


    If i get marked down for this it would be pretty gay because i actually nicked it off the text book and it makes a clear point....

    Cheers.

    you wouldn't get marked down for it, but it's a rinsed joke that anyone who knows anything about us politics knows already that doesn't really say anything so i doubt you'd get any marks for it..

    as a rule of thumb avoid jokes in exams..

    I referred to Chris Christie as a "right wing heavyweight" on Monday's exam, does that count? This is him:
