A teenager's hilarious letter which lists the reasons he didn't do his homework has gone viral.
Edward Cortez, 14, from California, was asked to write a note to his teacher after failing to do an assignment.
The amusing letter, which argues that he 'does what makes him happy' and goes on to explain that he avoids stress after his mother recently found she had gray hairs, was shared to Twitter last week where it quickly went viral.
Posting a picture of the note online, his father's cousin Lydia wrote: 'So my cousin and his wife got an email from their son's teacher.

The lengthy letter quickly racked up a staggering 351,000 likes, 99,000 retweets and almost 3,000 replies.
'I didn't do my homework because I don't want to do school work over the weekend because it's a stress-free time to go out with friends, watch TV and play games,' he wrote.
'I don't (sic) do it also because it makes me very mad and unhappy. I do  what makes me happy because I want to be happy plus my mom has been finding gray hairs, not trying to stress out dog (sic)'.
He went on to argue: ' The real world jobs don't give you homework unless you're a boss or teacher.

'The points were 100% valid': a follower wrote in response to the amusing letter, which argues that he 'does what makes him happy' and wants to avoid stress, after his mother went gray


Joking about the reference to his mother's gray hair, one said: 'I thought he was implying that he didn’t want gray hair?'
'Homework is not a real thing in the real world so we should not have to do it in school because it's not useful.
Concluding his letter, he wrote: 'Case closed, the court rule in favor of Edward Immanuel Cortez in the case of student vs homework.'
Replying to the viral tweet, one follower wrote: 'At least he is being honest about it!'
Meanwhile another said: 'This is hilarious. I wish I had known decades ago that I’m not supposed to be bringing home work in my real-world job. Who knew?'

Another joked: 'Or he doesn't want the dog to get gray hairs.'


Joking about  the letter, one person shared a meme of Donald Trump looking confused, and wrote: 'Me as the teacher'
Another shared a meme writing: 'You're making some very good points'
And one user argued that the youngster should be given a logical explanation as to why homework is given.
He wrote:  'Kids who question authority and think independently need to be reasoned with and given guidance. A common mistake is getting into a power struggle with the kid. That will just make him rebel more.'
Replying, one teacher added: 'I'm a teacher and I 100% agree with this child! Stop assigning weekend homework. Limit homework during the week. 
'Teachers and these ridiculous workloads are causing kids to HATE school and reject learning!
