Monday, December 12, 2016 – One College Football Award and Your Monday Assignments
The only award today for college football goes to Sam Houston State University. While alumni are still proud of you, I must award you the Wait Until Next Year Award. It was either that one or the one to James Madison for “A Good Old Fashioned Big Thicket Bearkats’ Butt Kicking.”
Moving onward through the fog…
This just in from the William Robert Bagachips News Bureau. http://www.billybobbagachips.fakenews.com
The finalists for head of the Drug Enforcement Agency in President Elect Twitter’s Cabinet are Tommy Chong, Cheech Marin and Walter White with Mr. White having the inside track according to SNL.
Keep moving through the Worm Hole.
Our word for the day is thransonical. It is an adjective meaning boastful; vainglorious. His humour is lofty, his discourse peremptory, his tongue filed, his eye ambitious, his gait majestical, and his general behaviour vain, ridiculous, and thrasonical. — William Shakespeare, Love’s Labour’s Lost, 1598
For the Shakespearean challenged Love’s Labour’s Lost is a comedy with a theme of reality versus fantasy.
Assignment: Use thransonical in a sentence at your next Christmas party to describe President Elect Trump. Take a survey to determine how many people believe it to be complimentary.
Thought question for the day – How many millions did the Cabinet Post picks contribute to the Trump campaign? Within a couple of million will be close enough for government work.
Assignment: Select a potential Cabinet member and write an essay titled “Why _____ is qualified to hold the position of ______ .”
How long does the essay have to be? Long enough to cover the subject, so yes handing in a blank piece of paper with just the title will be sufficient. Yes, for extra credit you may address the entire cabinet and still turn in a tabla rasa for qualifications.
Class dismissed. I must see if my Rosetta Stone for learning Russian and Chinese has arrived.
