Not To Be Trusted With Knives

Why does the stupid word verification thingy in Blogger no longer work in Firefox? It used to work just fine, but now the image no longer shows up and the workaround for people with disabilities doesn’t do anything at all. If I want to comment, I have to go to the post I want to comment on in IE! Boo!

And while I’m bitching, Jorge, why do your Footnotz not work in Firefox? You only get to see part of the footnote, followed by “…” and there is no where to click to get the full footnote. I am hereby boycotting Footnotz until you make them work in Firefox. So there!

{March 7, 2007}   Grad Student Humour

At Danielle’s birthday dinner last night, Sheila mentioned a Simpsons clip that a friend of hers had sent her from You Tube:

All I have to say is, “I’m 30 and I WISH I made $600!!”

In my search for that clip, I came across this other clip about grad students:

It’s funny because it’s true. I find it amusing that the professor in the clip has elbow patches on his tweed jacket. Why do they always portray profs as wearing tweed jackets with elbow patches on them in TV shows and movies? Eleven years of postsecondary education and I never met a prof with a tweed jacket, let alone elbow patches.

And then, as YouTube sucked me in, I also found this clip, which I have always found hilarious:

I’ve been known to use the quotation “there may be a boogyman, or boogymen, in the house!”

OK, I’ll stop now.
