Stupid Ass Test ("SAT” backronym)

The SAT test (popularly used in college admissions) once stood for “Scholastic Aptitude Test” and then “Scholastic Assessment Test.” There have been many backronyms (back acronyms) for “SAT.”

“Sad Ass Test” was cited n print since at least 1997, “Stupid Asshole Test” in 2000, “Suck Ass Test” in 2004, “Stupid Ass Test” in 2004, and “Shitty Ass Test” in 2011. The SAT has also been called the “Student Affluence Test” because students from wealthier families usually score higher.

The PSAT test has a similar backronym of “Pretty Stupid Ass Test.” The rival ACT test has been given the backronymic nickname “A Crappy Test.”

The SAT
The SAT is owned, published, and developed by the College Board, a nonprofit organization in the United States. It was formerly developed, published, and scored by the Educational Testing Service which still administers the exam. The test is intended to assess a student's readiness for college. It was first introduced in 1926, and its name and scoring have changed several times. It was first called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, then the Scholastic Assessment Test.

I just recently started collecting a comic called Milk and Cheese. Its basically about a little milk and cheese that run around yelling and drinking. Its pretty funny...anyway.....theres a panel where they say-- “We have martinis! VERY DRY! NOW! Its test time for readers! Have you a “sense of humor”? Really? You think so? Then look at our list of purported laugh getters-LOOK DAMN YOU! Take the Milk and Cheese S.A.T (Sad Ass Test).
