Why would the guy even care about being called a donkey dock?

By writing the asterisk this guy left himself open to the notion that his words could have been interpreted as having a vulgar connotation.

Lionel Hutz: Oh, no, we've drawn Judge Hea/thcock. He's had it in for me ever since I removed the gavel from his courtroom.

Professor: Is that true?

Lionel Hutz: Well, replace the word "gavel" with the word "H"s and replace the word "courtroom" with the word "nameplate."

Lionel Hutz is a hell of a text parsing engine.

Hopefully the judge will get the chance to quote Beach v. Yellow Freight System in the opinion.

I take this story as another sign that the battle for academic freedom is being lost.

Replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly" and "dog" with "son"?

This guy says that the microphone known as "Donkey Dick" is the Electrovoice RE-20/PL-20.

Compare: 1. EV RE-20 2. Donkey dick (Possibly doctored)

I should add that the last link in 13 is NSFW if your workplace has a problem with fantastical depictions of animal genitalia.

When I was an undergrad, a prof taped a New Yorker-style cartoon to the door of a young hotshot prof. The cartoon depicted a man doing shots at his desk with another prof poking his head around the doorframe and saying 'Prepping for class?'

The young hotshot prof wrote underneath in bold blue sharpie 'what do you mean, 'prep for class'?

You need one of those if you're a very inflexible hoofed quadraped, and your partner is too.

My daughter took a course at the School of Media Arts the summer before this last. Don't remember the instructor's name.

On the blog, I prefer to be referred to as "Fontana Labs."
