Nov. 27 (UPI) -- A college student wore a sandwich board-style FAQ to his family's Thanksgiving dinner in Georgia so he could avoid answering cliched questions.

Robert Clarke, an Ohio State University student, tweeted a photo of the sandwich board he wore to his family's Thanksgiving dinner in Marietta.


The sign contained some common questions students typically receive about college life, including his major -- "Athletic Training" -- and whether he has a girlfriend -- "No, I am allergic. I am trying to maintain my GPA."

Clarke said the board allowed him to silently answer the questions of relatives by simply pointing to the answer.

"I said nothing to whoever would ask a question and simply pointed to the question on the poster which was asked," Clarke tweeted.
