And My Course on the Vietnam War Will Ruin Most of January …

Seen at a Starbucks in Westchester County:


Hey, that's not so bad. I've had courses that ruined an entire semester!


More people to spellcheck before publishing something in pubic.

Enter your name...

"Eye have a spelling chequer,
It came with my Pea Sea.
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss Steaks I can knot sea."

"Ruin" is a correctly spelled English word, and it's grammatically correct. The typist needed a proofreader, not a spilling chucker.

I am teaching a course on "The Myth and Reality of the War in Vietnam". The course will include:

"The Green Berets" starring John Wayne;
"Apocalypse"; "Born of the 4th of July" starring Tom Cruise;
"The Deer Hunter" Starring Robert De Niro.

Popcorn available in the lobby.


I once got a lecture handout that said "Press F7 to compile and F8 to ruin the program."


i'm teaching a course on the "evolution of retail outlets' holiday sale television commercials", which i GUARANTEE will ruin much more than 11/21 through 12/12.

Not a patch on the original from Dr Spooner, in an irate retort to students who threw pebbles at his window at night in order to rouse him for sport:

"You have hissed all my mystery lectures, and tasted the whole worm!"



Good one :-)
