Sources confirmed Friday that sophomore Brady Thompson, who was the first student to submit the online midterm examination for his Intro to Psychology course, has ultimately received the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his achievement. “As most students know, taking an online test with peers almost always guarantees a higher score since the students work together to complete the exam,” said a representative from the Nobel Committee. “However, it takes a brave and courageous soul to be the first person to submit and get a potentially low grade.”
“I know, I know, it’s not every day you get to work with someone as brave as I am,” boasted Thompson, polishing his new gold medal. “I really put my grade on the line there. You’re welcome.”
Thompson’s classmates were astonished by his act of heroism. “He got five questions wrong so we could get all of them right,” sighed classmate Melanie Rosa in absolute awe. “He walked so we could run. It’s amazing.”
At press time, Thompson was reported to have begun writing a memoir based on his experience. Preorders for the book will be available soon.
