This teacher may be the best ever for giving his pupils a hilarious fake spelling test in an early April Fools' Day prank.

In a video posted to Facebook, Joey Dombrowski is seen seated in front of his class, reading out their weekly spelling test. But something's not right ... in fact, nothing's right. All the words are made up. Words like: 'blorskee', 'slipert' and 'tangateen'.

The 9- and 10-year-olds are baffled by the words, yet write them down to revise anyway.

As he reads through his pretend list, you can hear the kids, from the elementary school in Michigan, getting increasingly animated as they react to the super tricky, ridiculously spelt words.

"Ch-ch-ch: The horse was angry so I said ch-ch-ch'," he tells the children.

The prankster teacher even slips some silent letters in to make it even harder for everyone. 

"Look there's a Speekuzslmn - spelt SPEEKUZSLMN - there's silent letters at the end of that one," he says.

"Wazamata. Student's said they were sick and I said 'wazamata with you'. WAZAMATA.


"The next word is chabolaskp. Be careful you don't catch chabolaskp – spelt CHABOLASKP. More silent letters."

As the kids begin to giggle at the absurdity of it all, he gives them their final word.

"The last word to spell is April Fools!" he laughs.

His video has now been viewed more than 5 million times, and shared almost 100,000 times.

I have a feeling there'll be a heap of fake spelling tests for kids in schools all over the world today.
