English Major Humor

These crack me up, because I was an English Major. I say "was", but once an English Major, always an English Major. It is a permanent state of mind.

Are you laughing? Do you have a joke about your education or your job or yourself in general? Share it with the group!

Those are quite funny!

Hehe, I would've died of alcohol poisoning all the times postmodernism was talked about in my classes and books.

I would've gotten trashed while reading "The Odyssey" - having a drink for everytime they referred to Hector and his "flashing helmet". They mentioned "flashing helmet" ten zillion times in that story.

Very funny. I was an English major in the 80's, so for me, I'd have been trashed if I had to drink anytime someone said the words, "meta" and "cathartic". Jaysus.

MrManuel: They really tickled me.

Sebastien: I'm glad you decided not to go hard core with your drinking games! I like you better amoung the living.

Tara: hee hee! The flashing helmet...what a way to get trashed.

Churlita: Me too! And I probably would have enjoyed college more if I'd had a few while translating Chaucer and Beowulf.

Q: Why are research scientists increasingly turning to lawyers instead of the traditional lab rats, for testing new therapies?

A: There are some things rats won't do.

DiDC: ha! Thank you for that excellent lawyer joke :-) Love it.
