Student 1, working on Syriac homework:

“I just can't figure out what is going on in this passage! Why are there elephants? People!? A city!?! A wall!?!? Water!?!?!”

(5 minutes later)

“What the f*** does that word mean! I just looked it up, damn it! Oh, f****, I'll look it up again.”

(3 seconds later)

“Where the hell is mem! The letter mem!”

(5 minutes later)

“They're under attack by innumerable elephants, but I don't know who is doing it or why.”

(2 minutes later)

“This is crazy! I feel like I'm in the middle of this war!”

(5 minutes later)

“Now randomly there is a divine temple! Where the hell did the temple come from!”

(26 minutes later)

“I really wish they would stop praying...”

(7 minutes later)

“I'm trying to figure out if the bishop is filling or killing the horseman with cows. Cows...or...something else.”


“Ah, yes! It's filling! Filling them with cows. But, I just don't see how that could be...”

(Pauses, strokes chin, looks puzzled)

“Oh! Oh! Encouragement! He's filling them with encouragement! I was conflating 'the rest of the people' with 'cows.'”

Student 2:
“There's a fine line between cows and encouragement...”

Student 1:
(Incoherent whimpering)
“I don't know why its doing that! I wish it would stop! Oooh....”
(Groans, rocks in fetal position)

I syndicate the posts here to my google reader, and this one came up with no clickable title. So I clicked through to the site itself and discovered I had been (unintentionally? deviously brilliantly?) Rickrolled.

Well played. Well played indeed.
