McDowell started class today with this:

"Most people know the legend of William Tell and his unique method of making applesauce, but not many know that he and his family were championship bowlers. Highly skilled, their team was sponsored eagerly by local merchants. To have 'Tell's Terrors' represent your firm was a great honor.

Even now, to be able to claim that the Tells once represented your family business would be of great advertising value. Unfortunately, the old records have been lost, and today we can't be sure for whom the Tells bowl."

Bad joke. But, oh, I can't help but laugh. It does not take a lot to amuse me.

Discussion also strayed to the Bee Gees and dog whistles. Donne got compared to Jon Stewart in his accessibility to the people in his sermons. We also heard a story about this guy who broke up with a girl over the phone by saying, "Listen, it's like reading. I've read that book. Now I'm putting it back on the shelf."

Both the joke and the breakup are absolutely awful, but I can't help but greatly enjoy them both.

Amusing classes make me happy.

You do too.

They're so bad, but there's just something about them that makes me grin.

There may be fic in your future.
