She Said "Erection"

Hello everyone!

Today I sat in my "The Political Economy of North-South Relations" class and desperately tried to stay awake and pay attention to the wonderfully exciting world of international trade policies and developing economies. I am actually interested in this incredibly boring subject matter, but that's only because I'm a nerd. Still, when we talk in detail about dependency theory, the Kuznets curve, and Keynesian Management Theory, even my eyes begin to glaze over. On this day I had just finished a three day weekend, so although I wasn't going to nod off completely, I had no ability to focus and pay attention even if I'd wanted to. Anyway, while I was staring at the back of the head of the person sitting in front of me, pondering what brand of shampoo she uses, I suddenly heard my professor, a very attractive younger woman, say this:

"...but with the erection of trade barriers..."

Holy crap! Did Professor Baker just say "erection" in front of the whole class?

It was all I could do to keep myself from blurting out, "She said 'erection'!" From where I was sitting, I was surrounded by women, and I hadn't said more than four sentences to all of them combined in the past three weeks, so I managed to restrain myself out of fear of how they'd react. Desperately, I looked around at each of the other students, at least the ones I could see from my seat, hoping to see a sign that at least one other person in the class caught it. But alas, everyone else had the same glazed over look on their faces that I had just had. I even tried looking the three jocks who always sit together and high-five each other a lot, but each was focused on his laptop, no doubt looking up sports scores or kinky porn and pretending to be anywhere but in that classroom at that time.

What's wrong with today's youth?

There's only one two people who can appreciate something of this magnitude. Take it away, boys:

Butthead: She said "erection". Uh-huh-huh.

Beavis: Yeah, yeah! Erection! Boooooiiiiiiinnng! Heh-heh-heh!

My thoughts exactly. I guess today's youths just aren't sophisticated enough.

Today, in my literature class, somebody asked me "Is it like, just me, or does is our teacher kinda like that one teacher who taught those two boys who were on Daria?"

And I was all, like "um, you mean the one who was like in that one movie and stuff and was singing about the gay birds and stuff?"

And they're all like "uh, yeah!"

Well, anonymous, you must attend a school with a very sophisticated student body.

Incidentally, those gay birds were actually lesbian seagulls. They're not to be confused with queer moreporks or, my personal favorite, bisexual bushtits.
