“I was an honor student—I don’t know what happened”

"I was an honor student—I don’t know what happened” is a popular bumper sticker. The bumper sticker is a parody of the “My child is an honor student” bumper stickers.

Wondermark by David Malki ! created the cartoon (and then the bumper sticker) in September 2009.

dear mr. malki!,
i wonder if you plan to make the “i was an honor student - i don’t know what happened” bumper sticker into an actual object available for purchase, but if i had a car, which hypothetically i should eventually, once i have a job, i would put one of those on it.

Man reading my sticker: “‘I was an honor student, I don’t know what happened.’ That’s not for me. I know exactly what happened.”

Ура, кто-то ответил наклейкам MY CHILD IS AN HONOR STUDENT:
. My zombi child ate your honor student’s brain
. My child is an honor student, but I drive like an idiot.
. I was an honor student. I don’t know what happened.
