Student's 19-word Fight Club essay given perfect grade by teacher

Student's 19-word Fight Club essay given perfect grade by teacher

She's absolutely mastered this

Ugh, essays. Apart from the odd one or two people who seem to enjoy writing out words and words of work on a weeknight, essays fill the majority of us with dread.

Anyone who has had to sit and churn out one for school or university will know the pain of attempting to get every key bit of information into as few hundred words as possible.

Or even worse, having to waffle on for thousands of words about something.

Somehow students find the power to find ten different ways of saying the same thing in order to rack up that sacred word count.

But one pretty ballsy student decided to take a different approach for her essay about the legendary film, Fight Club.

She decided to write about the 1999 cult hit with Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, in which their characters decided to form a masochistic underground fight club.

And somehow, the student managed to do it in just 19 words - despite how much you might have to say about the film.

But what’s more incredible is that she managed to bag a 100/100 from her teacher for the ‘essay’.

Sharing this big win on X, Allison Garrett wrote: "The assignment description for essay 5 was to write a review of a movie that we had seen. The opportunity arose, and I took my chances."

The film is regarded as a cult classic.

So, what ground-breaking analysis did she demonstrate to earn such rave reviews?

Quoting the film's most iconic line, she opened her essay with: "The first rule of fight club is: you do not talk about fight club."

Adding at the bottom of the page: "That's it, that's my essay."

I mean, round of applause for the bravery there.

But she wasn't done just yet.

In the comment section, she wrote: "I cannot say that I am sorry because that would be a lie. Am I Proud? Yes."

And to prove that this was no joke, Allison also posted a screenshot of the comments made by her teacher after reading her 'essay'.

The 'essay'.

Now, most of us would be terrified after writing an essay like this, waiting to receive the mother of all bollockings from our teacher, but Allison's professor was just impressed - though they warned about trying the same thing with another member of staff.

They wrote on the comments section of the submission page: "I struggled over this grade for a long time. I finally decided you get a grade for a laugh and how relevant your review is for this particular movie.

"Let me warn you: do NOT try this kind of thing with other professors; they may not have my sense of humor."

Since it was shared, Allison's post gained a lot of attention online.

One person wrote: "I was always told life is about taking risks... I was scared to say the least."

Allison later added: "I got a 100 on the paper and passed the class with an A."
