This Just In...


Actual email from a student:

Sorry i will not be in class tomorrow, i have been in the hospital and was diagnosed with gull stones.


I'm guessing he'll need to see a sturgeon.

    The docs better chickadee bile secretions. I know, because my French instructor in high school had gaul stones.

    I'm just glad he chose to seek kelp for this instead of clamming up.

    zI'm trying to keep up with all these puns, but I'm floundering a little.

    I'm starting to believe that you're trying to confuse me on porpoise.

    Man, you punsters octopus your energy somewhere else. We've been carping on that student so much that Moby he'll flunk the class. In any case, eel be punished.

    At least it was just gull stones. Mine told me today that she had diarrhea...yup-- I really needed to know that.

    Isn't it lovely when they share?

    I've been so strict about my students missing class that they scramble for those medical notes. This one was pretty easy for the kid to get from the hospital. A note for diarrhea? Doubtful. So you should've asked for proof. Heh.

    [speaking from unconsciousness]

    Actually, the puns busted up my skull so bad, I didn't even notice the typos.

    But now that you've pointed them out, I'm deeply ashamed of you.

    People will make me turn my back on you. They will say "O-cean him!"

    That's the best.
    Game. Set. And Match to you.

    My Bass is tired. I'm going to bed.

    (Sorry. I couldn't resist that last bit.)
