okay, i know i should stop doing this, but we’ll go for it one more time, and just say that the following selection is from a hypothetical student’s hypothetical paper that I’m hypothetically grading right now, because it’s too good not to share:

"My mom taught me that it is important to settle your problems on your own and I don’t think we can do much to help the Iraqis situation but hurt it. I don’t know why the US is so concerned about a civil war in Iraq. Last time I checked, Iraq is neither close to us physically and secondly who cares… Saddam should not be ready to be hung, don’t quote me because he should be hung, but he shouldn’t be hung because we should never have been there in the first place."

"You know those signs they have at amusement parks, setting a measurement for how big you have to be to go on a particular ride? There are Eagles scouts standing next to those lines, poised to sign anyone who is turned away." — Les Bowen
