Exam Howlers

This week the Times Higher Education magazine published some US responses to UK Exam Howlers. A personal favourite from the UK:
[A tutor] was asked for a reference via the following message: "Will you please be a referee for a job for which I am appalling?"
And from the US:
[A] lecturer cited a student's scathing observtion that "Prof seems to think that he knows more than the students."
Reminds me of an eminent UK Professor who recalled a student's query during a lecture:
"Sir, are you making all this stuff up?"
