Two part quiz today.

1- Suppose, hypothetically speaking, you were the administrator of a public elementary school. Now, pretend it's a Spring pollen-filled day, and one especially allergic kindergartner reports that one of her eyes is watering and she's feeling a little under the weather. Do you:

A) Assume hay fever?
B) Ask if she got something in her eye?
C) Diagnose a case of Pink Eye DESPITE ANY ACTUAL PINKNESS IN THE EYE and demand that her parents remove her from the school until she is either cured or a doctor determines that she does not have Pink Eye?


2- Please caption this picture:

1. I'm going to have to say C ... Because if your daughter's school is anything like my daughter's school, then I'm sure they approached you as if you were the worst parent in the world for not realizing she had ... pink eye. Oh wait, she didn't have pink eye! Darn that hay fever!

2. Cloning Experiment Fails

1. As a product of this country's fine public education system, I'd also have to say the correct answer is C. These are the same fine folks who determined in sixth grade that I had a horrible rash on my hand and had to go home immediately, lest I risk infecting the entire school with leprosy.

Turns out my hands just needed lotion. Who knew?

2. Bush: "Note to self: Ban double-handed handshakes in gay-marriage amendment -- they just make me feel...uncomfortable."

Stacey and colby, you guys rock! Yes, here in San Francisco the answer to question #1 seems to be C. Of course when I brought my daughter to the doctor, and the doctor asked if she had gotten anything in her eye, my daughter said, "Yes." Why that didn't occur to the school folks, I'll never know.

Your answers to #2 were both excellent. Colby, was your line a reference to Ally McBeal?

Colby - at least the double handed handshakes keep the hands where you can see them.

I don't have a caption, but Putin doesn't really look HUMAN in that picture, does he? And the way he's just lightly caressing Bush's hand makes even ME vaguely uncomfortable. I bet after the picture was taken he kissed the hand softly and mumbled sweet nothings in Russian, gazing deeply into Bush's monkey-like eyes... Hey, a girl can dream...

Mike said...

Vixen, I disagree. I think Putin looks way MORE human than usual. The pursed lips, the sad eyes, and the aching tenderness with which he delicately caresses Dubya's hand, all these things nearly bring tears to my previously-jaded eyes.

The Mincemeat Vixen said...

"Aching tenderness". Nice.
