I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed reading these. Glancing through quickly, I assumed that these were written by middle or high school students. It's a little bit frightening to see that they were college students! Funny!! Do you have more?

Unfortunately I have to agree with one of them.

The public appears no brighter than aherd of lemmings spreading toward a cliff.
Have you all noticed that the public in general is getting dumber by the minute???

You're so right! I always thought currants were only good for my mother to use in jelly making.
Actually, you have to give this last kid some credit. If he/she could ease up a bit on his metaphors and learn to spell, he wouldn't be a bad writer.

At last, the end of the book. It is probably safe to assume that every American college freshman knows the following:
  • 2 George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy and Richard Nixon served as presidents of the US. Wahington was the first president and Lincoln also lived a long time ago, while the latter two were in the twentieth century.
  • 3 The US still suffers from the horrors of its slaveholding past, whenever that was. The Civil War, which took place sometime between 1750 and 1930, was mixed up with this.
  • 4 Adoplh Hitler (a foreigner of some kind) was a very bad man.
  • 5 There was at least one World War, but absolutely not more than three.
OOPS, somehow, I lost #1: At some point in the distant past, the US fought a war of independence against a major European or Asian power. A extraordinary Tea Party was a factor.
