Back Home in Feenix

And preparing to go back into the classroom tomorrow, where there are students who write sentences like this one:

"Public school students must deal with drugs, pier pressure, and other things that make learning difficult."

    Jetties, docks, and even entire harbors can cause learning difficulties as well.

    They can cause all kinds of difficulties. Last night when I jettied back to Phoenix I felt like I needed to see a dock, but I knew he'd harbor resentment if I called him on a Sunday.

    I have to admit- I let out a plaintive whale when I saw this on the net.

    One Avid, you are in rare form today!

    Deliciously bad puns. You should be deeply ashamed of and proud of yourself.

    PB, you will pay for what you've done. I never know how to PUNish you since I gave you my riding crop. But I will find a way.

    By the way, those have guppy some of the worst puns ever. I showed them to a guy here in the office and he doesn't ink eel ever see any like these again. He was so repulsed he said "Let's squid for the day."

    I said "Walleye agree."

    My students are soooo not that interesting. I only wish that my grading was half that entertaining.

    LD, I have to go through MANY entirely flavorless papers to get to even a little morsel like that one.

    I'll send for kelp!

    Candy, clam down. No need to sand for kelp just yet, but prepare to S.O.S. in case my plan doesn't work. I shell let you know.

    Steve B, just take it easy. You're letting the pier pressure get to you. Try taking some drowners. Come on, everybody's doing it. I'm shore that you'll be feeling just ducky afterward. Water you waiting for?

    (I hope you're not gull-ible enough to fall for that hook, line, and sinker.)
