This is the history you never learned in school (or maybe you did).
Art Linkletter once noted that small children often mix fantasy and reality, making their views of everyday life wildly askew. But when the Baby Boomers and Generation Xers entered college, they were still mixing fantasy and reality, as their history and English essays demonstrated in a fractured, fictionalized, hilarious interpretation of events.
Here are gems uncut and unpolished, straight from the pens of freshmen and sophomores trying desperately to make some sense out of the past. If these bloopers prove nothing else, they demonstrate that Art Linkletter's "little kids" still say "the darndest things" when faced with college history exams . . .

About the Author
Professor Strayer delights in studying the "twilight zone" in which past and present overlap-a zone in which you can never be certain whether you are on Planet Earth, Middle Earth, Narnia, Perelandra, or with Alice in Wonderland. Those who read this delightful collection of student bloopers will find that history, herstory, and hysteria often coexist and that the past is always present!
