School systems, whether public or private, really need to come up with some sort of "filter" so these kinds of tests or homework assignments don't even make it to the classroom. Create a proofreading position to where the material is checked before it gets to the students. Hire me, I need more work. And just to clarify in case some peoples' "creative" side takes over, proofread for content as much as how it's presented.
You want to get creative with math problems to help hold the students' attention and make learning fun? Why don't the adults ask the students for ideas about what's fun for them? Get them involved. Take some of those ideas and form questions around them.
There's creative and then there's just plain weird. And no, it's not nearly a matter of perception. Sorry.
