Borders

I’ve noticed
On Canadian radio today
That as “wall” talk heats up
The broadcasters have switched
From calling us
America or those United States
To “south of the border”

Smile Inducing

‚ÄčThe two most smile-inducing moments of ENG 3010 student introductions today:

(1) The guy who shared that over break, he learned what “scaramouche” means (“Bohemian Rhapsody” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scaramouche) .. basically means a cowardly buffoon

(2) The guy who said he found the perfect (jean) jacket, and his friend painted it … “and, well, I’m wearing it …” as we’re all gawking and wondering if that’s it: a wonderfully painted cartoon dog on the back.
