1000 Word Essay

Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

A boy was in detention from talking too much when the teacher was talking. The detention teacher said, "You have to produce a 1000 word essay in 30 seconds...GO!!"

The boy actually did it. How?

Note: he did not just write "A 1000 word essay" on his paper. You'll have to be a little more clever than that.

I thought it was an already made essay from a book or something to that nature and just handed it to the teacher.

i was going with the "picture is worth a thousand words" answer, until i couldnt work out how you got rid of the 200 words from 1000 to get to 800. after that i decided that since the teacher said "produce" rather than "write" the essay, he just found an 800 word essay somewhere and handed it to her

Since it said "produce" and not "write" i assumed he got someone else's paper and produced that. I like my answer better!

I heard this one years ago, read it in a teaser book or something; it stumped me the first time.

I thought he went with a rebus:
30 a-1000-word-essay seconds.

I agree with those that say he "produced" the essay intead of "wrote" the essay.

I figured he was probably in trouble a lot and had another essay on hand that he gave the teacher.

I like jaycr's answer! But I did get the answer 'drew a picture' immediately--easy-peasy but very good.

That was an awesome teaser. I didn't know the saying, but I know I've heard it before. Maybe I was researching a famous painter or something. I forgot, but I didn't realize how easy it was until I checked the answer.

but... while a picture may be worth a thousand words, that doesn't make it an essay...

I thought that since it said produced, not write, that he would just take out an essay that he already had...
