WATCH: Boy passes University, fails at showing off

A graduation ceremony to remember for students in Grand Rapids, Michigan

It's a shame higher education doesn't make you smarter.

Take Robert Jeffery Blank.

His parents must be so proud, watching their son walk across the stage accepting his diploma from Davenport University on Sunday.

Trying to show off, Blank turns to the crowd and tries a back flip.

One that earns a failing grade.

Instead of getting an 'A', he earned some groans from the crowd in the auditorium.

Maybe he was trying to get an extra credit at the school of hard knocks....
