Blonde Geometry

Okay...I have never been a big fan of blonde jokes...the whole making fun of someone based on a genetic variation never made sense to me. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying I am a saint or anything...I enjoy people watching and making fun of people...but only for things that are within their control (actions, words, etc...)


After careful scrutiny, it is our understanding that the blonde
student was given credit for the answer, but the board of education
has warned math teachers to be more explicit in the future.

I told my class about this joke and got not a single chuckle. Granted, this is the same class (instructor too) that glazed over when I used the words "vitriolic" and "ambivalent."

What's to become of us?

The other day, I uesd the word inscrutable to describe some policy at work and got a puzzled stare. When asked what I meant, I said the policy was esoteric. Again, puzzled stare. Next was 'arcane'. Nothing. Finally, I just said that it makes sense to only the few people really know about it, and they don't want to tell you about it.

At times it's like working with 3rd graders.
