The demand: is that someone needs to put Steve Coogan playing Substitute on Spicks & Specks on the Interwebs, right. now. Many of you will know exactly why this is: I ask that you do not tell those who do not yet know.

The meme: is a book meme, stollened from [livejournal.com profile] laurenmitchell.

  1. The worst reading experience that you have ever had?

    I simply could not read The Catcher in the Rye. This is not an uncommon response to it, of course, but it was just- gah. It was enough to make me turn a new, pristine, freshly-delivered copy, from the new set that we and we alone were entrusted with before any of the troglodytes in the lesser English classes, that didn't even have names and student numbers recorded for them, as a case study in projectile motion.

    I could not bring myself to read the book, or even to read summaries, and instead blagged my way through with some tripe about context, intertextuality and rubric. To this day, I am convinced that the syllabus awarded marks based solely on the presence of words such as 'context', 'intertextuality' and 'rubric'.

    For that matter, I am also convinced that those responsible for said marking have no idea what 'rubric' even means, but knew it made me sound smarter than them. So there we have it: you can pass exams by making the markers feel just a little bit dumb.

  2. This goes on for some time. )
And there we have it. I now return you to your regularly scheduled friends list.
