I'd like to take this opportunity to express my extreme hatred for the
number 37. I hate 37, and all test-takers who come from 37. If your father
or mother was a 37 I will know the second I lay eyes on your test. If you
hand in a test with a sticker of 37 on it, I'll punch you right in the nose.

Yep, real purdy lookin.

I especially like the "+", "-" and "=" parts.
