Welcome to the Dark Semester Of the Soul, Bitches

Professor: Apologies to everyone in advance, I seem to have the plague this week.
Student: Are you contagiously ill, or have you been on antibiotics for at least twenty-four hours?
Professor: No, not contagiously ill. It's nothing like H1N1 or anything, not that kind of plague. It's more of a the-crops-are-failing-and-women-are-giving-birth-to-stillborn-babies type of plague. Yeah. –Fordham University Lincoln Center Overheard by: Admiring Student

Wednesday One-Liners in Elbow-Patch Blazers

Professor: So I told my grad students they could have an A if they earned it, or if they beat me in a 12-minute cage fight. –Fordham Universityy Israeli politics professor, after class: There's enough Tylenol out there to take care of your hangovers after Purim. So, all your sorry little asses better be in this class at three o'clock, Wednesday afternoon. –Yeshiva University English professor: Yeah, the end of the poem relates to the beginning. Every good poem has a return… just like a good walk. –Hunter college Professor: Of course there was marital harmony! As we all know, the family who cuts drugs together, stays together. –Fordham Law School Overheard by: EntertainedStudent Professor: An example of synecdoche would be, "get your ass over here." You want all of them, not just their ass. But sometimes, you do just want their ass. And we all know how that goes.

Then you put it all into pill form, and down it with a Sparks! –N Train Architecture professor: Everything in moderation… except for heroin. Heroin, you go for the gusto. –Pratt Institute Overheard by: Denali
