Crazy things my professors say…

13 Apr

Tonight in class, it occurred to me that the teaching staff at USF St. Pete is way more humorous than the staff at St. Pete College (I went there for my AA). If the SPC teachers are funny, I never saw it.

So here goes:

Bible as Lit, Dr. W suggests we all watch Dogma because Alan Rickman is in it and it’s really funny. He also throws in as a side note that Silent Bob is in the film as well, and it also “very funny.”

Brit/Irish Lit, Dr. W (different than above) makes hilarious references to the movie Office Space when talking about how long essays should be at the minimum. At the beginning of the semester in each class (this is the 3rd class of his I’ve taken) he says, “Don’t get caught wearing the minimum flair!” He compares page count to flair. Haha silly.

Yesterday he compared Nine Inch Nails to the superior/ inferior thoughts in “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.” I zoned out a little, but it was something along the lines of that insecure feeling conveyed through some of the NIN lyrics and Prufrock’s thoughts.

Brit Lit, Dr. R. has suggested all different sights to see in England throughout the semester. Poet’s Corner, Wordsworth’s home, 221 Baker St….yadda yadda. Tonight she says (in a very up-beat tone) “There is also a night tour that you can go on in London where you are taken to a several spots where Jack the Ripper killed women.” *awkward silence + crickets* Then lots of laughing. You could tell she was in a moment and it was hilarious! She’s so fun. (I’m taking one of her classes in the Fall, too).

Also, while talking about “The Lady of Shalott” she was very excited to talk about Lancelot, almost like he was a literary crush. Don’t hate, everyone has one.

Brit Lit, Dr.C haha where to start! One day he did a really great Obi-Wan impression. “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for” from A New Hope.

There are more, my brain just has water on it right now. So, goodnight! xoxo

    I love that you shared these English-professor -gems…so many of mine at UCLA had a similar kind of humor. Sigh, it makes me miss the academic life! 😉
