I wear many hats, one of which is college professor. This time of year–when my grades have just been turned in!–I like to share bloopers from student papers and exams. So here we go. These are verbatim.

  • Whatever you do, don’t claim to be a witch!! If so, get ready to be burned alive at the steak.
  • Fogging was also very common, which is being whipped or beaten.
  • If you ask me I think that trails by ordeal were forms of punishment as well.

    1. Wow. There are some major misunderstandings about what a pogrom is, aren’t there? And I had to laugh about the NCAA being an anti-hate group. Cooperative collegiate sports, anyone?

    2. ROFLMAO! Oh, memories. I was once a TA in the English Department of a very large university (before I dropped out of the doctoral program *gulp*). This all sounds so familiar — and still both cracks me up and makes me despair.

      Thanks so much for sharing, Kim.

    3. All the definitions of “pogrom” are just so close to almost being nearly right if you really stretch the definition of “right”. 😀

      I mean, a pogrom IS a program of violence, brought down upon the heads of Jews, sometimes resulting in children of mixed ethnic backgrounds, and the words “anti” and “hate” could fit in there somehow…..Hey, I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt. And thanking God that I don’t have to grade those papers. 😀
