Well, here's a different twist: A Swedish high school broke the news to seniors that they forgot to offer a religion course that's required for students to graduate.

The school admits this is their fault. Still, the principal said, to graduate on time, seniors had just a few days to complete all the requirements for the yearlong course. I'm giving the school the failing grade here.
