The International Behemoth is a 600 pound dark lord which lives in a basement in Geneva. It was summoned by cultists known as International Baccalaureate during the Vietnam War. The C.I.A funded their efforts in hope of using the IB to end the War. This failed like everything else they tried. The IB went on a hunger fueled rampage, and attacked Japan. It was finally subdued when it ate a student’s backpack. After capturing the sleeping beast and putting it in Your Mom’s basement in Geneva, they were able to figure out that eating “Homework” and “tests” put the beast to sleep. They were able to do this on a small scale for a while, until the IB got hooked on McTests and Burger King Pizzas, once it reached its critical obesity level it gave birth to five more beasts which moved to several parts of the world, starting cults in Your Mom’s basements.

International Baccalaureate (a.k.a. IB, Idiot's Baccalaureate, It's BS, International Bullshit, It's Bollocks or more simply, Hell) is a two-year program of internationally recognized education for students aged sixteen to nineteen that are diagnosed with clinical masochism or are suicidal but don't know how to kill themselves. As an internationally recognized program, this is the definitive ticket to Failure any university around the world (apart from countries that do not give a crap offer the program in state schools, e.g. China or Russia or Bosnia and Herzegovina). Furthermore, it requires you to dedicate your life and soul to the evil gods of the IB, also known as the IBO, who live in Buenos Aires/Geneva/Cardiff/Paris/London/Hell, and who delight in devising revisions to the syllabus that will make it impossible to pass. All IB classes come with a warning sticker attached. Don't blame us if you weren't shown it. In general, it simply reads, "WARNING: IB class." Prepare to lick your teachers boots for a seven, share a bed with your laptop and calculator, worship your textbook and invest large amounts of money in bribes. There is a possibility that you will learn something, but this will be covered with so much bullshit that you will never remember any of it. Ever. Also prepare to have no life what so ever (because you're selling your soul to the devil).

The IB Mission Statement

To cause a suicide rate of at least 5 out of 2 students

To protect the world from over-population

To unite all peoples within our world

To denounce the evils of truth and love

To extend our reach to the universities above

International... Baccalaureate!

I.B, blast off at the speed of light!

Surrender now or prepare to fight fight fight!

I.B... IB screwed

To cause a suicide rate of at least 5 out of 2 students

I think, therefore I am; I am, therefore I be; IB, therefore I BS.

Highlights of the International Baccalaureate Programme

The best part of this esteemed educational institution organization is that regurgitation is not only discouraged, but downright rude in an IB classroom! Instead, we require you to paraphrase.

To help break down the International Baccalaureate curriculum and give you an adequate review of its educational value, we have constructed a table for those with a scrutinizing eye.

Children As Suckups
Esteemed philanthropist Bill Clinton has this to say about his creation, "by requiring students to do community service hours we effectively ensure our excellent and stable economy is fueled by slavery. Plus, lazy students can once again pay themselves out of a shitty situation, and open themselves up to the delicious world of blackmail and extortion. It's a win-win for both me and Monica Lewinsky." President Barack Obama cites CAS as a "blueprint" to becoming a successful community organizer. 98.7% 23% 45% a TWO out of SEVEN.
Internal Assessment Charlie Brown 23.3% 56% 55% a TWO out of SEVEN.
Secondary Language Course (mandatory for both years) Arnold Schwarzenegger, accredited with stating this when asked about the program by a terrified International Baccalaureate student, "Once you're in a trap, you're in a trap, bitches". 77.3% 95% 65% a ONE out of SEVEN.

IB Conspiracy Theories

In the past, it was theorized that the IB was first created by the Gestapo as a brainwashing technique to train super soldiers in order to attack the Allied Forces through Cuba.

Modern conspiracy theorists, however, are convinced that the concept of the IB was created as a cage for individuals who may grow up to be elements of social instability.

IB Coordinator (right) attempting to lure new recruits (left) into the system.

The system lures said individuals with a little beam of light, and then traps them within the eternal darkness of ToK's paradoxical spirals. Later evidence suggests that the IB was created to provide fleshy ammunition to Wikipedia in its war with Uncyclopedia.

However, the attempt proved to be unfruitful. Long oppressed by the IBO's inhumane training, students merely turned to Uncyclopedia for an entertaining method of procrastination. Most of these students became Uncyclopedians and fought against the latter's copy cat: Wikipedia.

It is also believed that the IB was actually a part of the Geneva Peace Accords. Winston Churchill felt that he needed to punish the Germans for trying to conquer the world, and so he made Britain's best scientists develop a course which was made in such a way that after prolonged exposure, one would immediately commit suicide. Winston Churchill felt that in this way he could repay the Germans for the Holocaust. As we saw through history, Hitler did take IB and eventually committed suicide.

Additionally, there have been recent allegations that IB is a front company for environmental agencies and lobby groups. Sources claim that the copious amounts of paper (and thus the millions of trees cut down) required for IB paperwork and assignments will ensure that environmentalists have steady jobs for years to come.

Currently, the IB program is implementing the Nerdification Operation, in which IB students have been infiltrating all high school and university organizations in order to assert total dominance over the world. The Operation, officially known as "CAS hours", was reportedly blasted by people who actually have lives as "useless bullshit that forces IB nerds to do something other than have sex with their graphing calculators".

Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS)

Aside from the zombie-state inducing hours of coursework, it has also been decided that each IB student must show "growth" and "continuing improvement" via slave labour Creativity, Action and Service.

An example of this would be to help people who are nearly dead perform everyday routines, e.g. helping them to open jam jar because they are twisting the cap clockwise. This is the 'Service' part of CAS. Students generally apply ToK in CAS by arguing with themselves that by giving money to the poor, they are actually helping them and thus deserve CAS hours. Be aware that Service does not equal Servitude.

As an all encompassing education program, IB students are expected to be not morbidly obese, unlike Americans physically healthy.

Theory of Knowledge (ToK)

Main article: Theory of Knowledge

This class is better known as Tons of Krap crock of shit In this class is where a bloodthirsty demon teacher sucks the life out of its students by forcing said students' brains to asplode. It should be noted that most, if not all, ToK teachers play the guitar, and so it has been theorized that all of them are in fact the same person attempting to promote its fascist doctrine.

It also requires you to write a 1,200 to 1,600-word essay on one of the prescribed titles given by the IBO, none of which actually make any sense. After writing complete and utter bullshit for about two hours, you finally finish and go masturbate celebrate by doing some complex math equations. However, if you cannot manage a 'D-' at the very least, you automatically fail the diploma.

This is probably the most pointless class in the IB curriculum, forcing you to "think about the way you think you think..." Honestly now, why does it matter? I know shit, period, end of story, get over it. I don't need to "justify my knowledge claims." Unless you want me to justify that I don't know shit. Well, fuck you, I DON'T KNOW SHIT. And, if you were to say this in class, the teacher would throw some bullshit response at you, saying something like "But how do you KNOW that you don't know shit? What ways of knowing can you apply to your statement?"

This crock of shit class is such a complete waste of time that watching the High School Musical series one hundred times consecutively would be more productive.

The worst thing about ToK is you question everything, why is the sky blue? What is the color Blue? Is the sky real? Is color real? Is life real? Are you really reading these questions or are the questions reading you? Who determines what words means? WHAT THE FUCK are letters?

A famous ToK teacher once told the students that if they want to get an A+ on their report cards for ToK, they need to have "brilliant ideas." Seriously, how "brilliant" is this BS class?!

The Extended Essay (EE)

The Extended Essay is a 4,000 word demonic piece of writing that requires the IB student to bullshit about his or her chosen topic. If you don't do it, you automatically fail the IB diploma. If you don't get at least an Elementary grade, you automatically fail the diploma. However, if you fail, the IB retardation known as mark conversion will ensure you get 80 anyways. Seeing as most examiners don't give a shit about your essay since they are paid by the number of essays read, all your work will probably go to waste. If you exceed the word count, the examiner will penalize you over 9000 points out of 36.

HOWEVER RECENTLY, THE IB PROGRAMME HAS INSTATED A NEW PERSONAL PROJECT ALONG WITH COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS IN THE DOUBLE DIGITS, and that's not including CAS, AND YOU CANT BE IN IB UNLESS YOU DO. In addition to that, you have to write a summary of what happened (what you learned, and present it to your teachers, and anyone else who wants to know). This results in every club and team being laden down with stereotypical, useless IB kids who are mentally incapable of doing any kind of actual work.

All this, however, does not apply to Serbian students who have their studies based on wikipedia articles. This new phenomenon of Serb kids who study from wikipedia is widely spread around south east europe and includes countries such as Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro. Thus, by knowing this you probably know a Serb who will do all his work according to his master wikipedia capabilities, unlike Romanians, especially from Moldova. They play football like they are drunk and usually are referred to as "weak men".

IB's Six Core Curriculum

As a slave member of the IB lifestyle, there are six core topics that you must study:

  • Group 1—First Language
  • Group 2—Second Language
  • Group 3—Individuals and Society
  • Group 4—Experimental Sciences
  • Group 5—Mathematics and Computer Sciences
  • Group 6—Optional Electives

The IB Hexagon was originally designed as a pentagram, but even Satan's minions realized that you didn't have to be Dan Brown to see through such blatant symbolism.

After you've done all this, and you've become an old, wrinkled git in the space of the standard two years - one could ask you: "Granny/Grandad, why do you sit in an enclosed room and beat your head against the wall?" "Kid, I did the IB...or rather the IB did me..."

Highlights of IB's Higher Level Courses

When attempting to evaluate critically the quality of the International Baccalaureate and whether or not the programme is for you, one must take into account the more distinct aspects of the Higher Level courses. Remember to avoid looking into the requirements and offerings of Standard Level courses, because, quite frankly, you'd be wasting precious time and energy. Most (if not all) institutions of higher learning don't give a crap about Standard Level courses. In fact, they're completely and utterly useless in the long run - absolute shit.

IB Chemistry Test Page

A page taken from a recent Higher Level chemistry test.

Higher level chemistry is perhaps the crown jewel of the IB science offerings. The course gives you the ability to perform high-end laboratory practices, such as the mixing of two colourless liquids in a beaker to watch them react (despite the fact that the reaction yields no precipitate and the products look just as colourless and stupid as the initial reactants). This is true learning at work. Students are especially fond of cramming 120 hours of classroom instruction in organic chemistry into roughly two weeks of hour-long class periods while still being expected to know the material as if the 120 hours of classroom instruction had actually occurred. Higher Level chemistry tests, as shown to the right, prove to be the most confusing and nonsensical assessments offered in today's schools. Students complete forty Internal Assessments (IAs) each academic year. The average score of typical Higher Level chemistry IAs is approximately 0.89 in most institutions.

A staple of the Higher Level chemistry and physics courses is the "Grand Curve" (also known at the "Chem Curve," "Physics Curve," "Saving Grace," and "Imbecile Reassurance Factor"), the single force responsible for the fact that any students pass Higher Level chemistry or physics. General estimates of the curves are given by adding fifty points to the raw score out of 100. That is to say that if a 59 was deemed a passing score on an examination, a student in Higher Level chemistry or physics can expect to pass with a raw score of 9 (the high end of the grading spectrum).

Higher Level courses in second languages (the "B" series) are characterized by examinations in which the students must translate into their first language, word-for-word, a piece of classic literature of the language in question in 90 minutes. Higher Level Russian B, for example, would conclude with an examination involving the translation of the entirety of Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. All pages produced by the student on the exams (in these cases totaling thousands) must be linked together with the official IB string tag. If the student cannot manage to attach all papers together with the one-inch tag, he or she will fail the exam

Extra Credit in the IB

The IBO has recently assigned new extra-credit assignments. The following is a list of optional work, each worth one extra IB credit.

  • Divide by zero.
  • Revive the dodo bird (or dinosaurs).
  • Find a university that actually respects the IB.
  • Conquer the world. Twice.
  • Help the Toronto Maple Leafs win the cup.
  • Build the Death Star. Then destroy it without using your targeting computer.
  • Make a perpetual motion device, then stop it
  • Cure cancer. And AIDS. With the same vaccination.
  • Create, then destroy matter
  • Get back your friends virgnity

The Desire for Revenge


Due to the immense stress levels resulting from the IB coursework, some students find it necessary to unleash their frustrations onto their fellow classmates. 'Revenge' in its standard form, is generally intended to mean 'payback towards an individual in retailiation for actions they have commited against you'. The stress levels induced by IB, has warranted the modification of this definition. For the purposes of unleashing frustration in the IB, revenge has been redefined to mean 'the action of vandalising or destroying the work of others, independent of whether or not they provoked you'. Should a classmate enact revenge upon you, often due to the tempermental state of that person, it is far easier (and more satisfying) to enact revenge on a third (currently uninvolved) classmate. This can potentially lead to a domino effect, whereby the number of students involved in the cycle increases exponentially. For the purposes of maintaining productivity, it is usually necessary to create some constraints for revenge, to prevent it spiralling out of control. Constraints are also necessary in order to maintain the integrity of the revenge cycle (explained below). Such constraints may involve the immunity of certain activities/documents from revenge. Examples may include, but are not limited to,

  1. Documents containing plots for further revenge - Necessary in order to maintain the integrity of the revenge cycle.
  2. Last minute assignment work or homework - It is often more satisfying to watch your potential victim suffer under the stresses of their school work.
  3. Self revenge - This is not recommended.
  4. Revenge against persons who have completely disassociated themselves with the revenge cycle - It should be noted that once part of the cycle, it is impossible to leave.

The image above (right) shows a graphical representation of the aformentioned 'revenge cycle'. (Click to view in detail.)
