We're gonna need a bigger lecture hall.

Actually we're gonna need a bigger Tylenol. That course description just gave me a headache.

I watched my 7th grade English teacher have an orgasmic, semiotic mextasy on a professionally serviced Underwood typewriter.


omg, how YOUNG they were!

*climbs into reserved seat on Geezer Bus*

Boise State???. I thought they were only concerned with potato eyegiene, sour cream and chive orgasm, and Mashtasy.

Snork at many of the above, including Ligirl....

I thought ( and I am probably wrong) that
Mextasy was a Mexican vacation high on ectasy...

Something travel agents know more about than I do...

In fairness, we should note that Prof. Nericcio comes from U. San Diego. And there is no constitutional or other requirement that a Professor of English be able to speak English.

Yeah, eggzactly, I say what he says.

So ... the lecturer is from SDSU ... but the lecture is @ BSU ...

Mebbe San Diego sent him up to Idaho in the hopes that Boise would keep him?

A professor of English as a seventh language or so?

Perhaps from The Onion?

Dear, dear, dear. 'Mextacy' is a well-known syndrome invariably occasioned by eating at a Taco Bell in Idaho. Symptoms include the commoner forms of out-of-body and near-death appearance. The syndrome builds quickly and decays with considerable violence. It is highly advisable to remove the smart phone from the rear pocket of the patient before this happens. Else Homeland Security will respond.

I have a hankering for a burrito supreme.

Make a run from the boredom.

This is why people don't want to be edumicatified.
