okay so, in psych today, my teacher was going off about how he doesnt think jackson pollack is making worthwhile art, etc, and he asks if anyone with a straight face can say they think he is a significant artist. i like pollack, so i say yeah. he informs me that i will now be teaching the class on wednesday, to explain why. uhhhh what? what the hell do i say to that? i don't think i can say WHY i like his work, i just do.
also: walking back to my car after class, this girl leans out the back of a jeep taht was going by and yells at me WATCH OUT FOR SPIDERS. and then a truck drove by with $$ DANNY BOY $$ written on it. so clearly the world has gone mad, but it's pretty cool.
state: that's what i get for talking in class
np: munly - galvanized yankee - - virgin of manhattan

It's quite simple, really... on average, each college class costs about 46 dollars. That's per class each day.... not per course throughout the sememster. I believe the national average is right around 46 dollars, at least.
If one of my professors had told me that I was going to teach a class, I'd tell him that he better give me my 46 dollars, plus the equivalent of what he makes per class.

That will be such an easy class to teach. Here's what you do:
Bring a bunch of cans of paint in random colors to the class. Bring enough paper or canvas or whatever to cover a large portion of the room. Bring various odd implements to apply the paint with. (These implements should NOT include paintbrushes; they should be stuff like a beer bottle, a zucchini, a basketball, an empty bottle of Windex, etc.) Tell the class to go to work.
After the fun is over, and the class is pretty much done splashing random gobs of color every which way, painting your paper and the walls and the professor and themselves, and they're all lying on the floor gasping for breath and giggling and rainbow-hued, get up in front of the class and ask whether there's anyone in the room who still thinks that Jackson Pollack's art isn't worthwhile.
If anyone speaks up, splash some more paint on them until they're having fun. Then ask the question again. Repeat as often as necessary.
