A Gift to the Medievalists!

Okay, this is a sign that I should keep the blog. Otherwise, with whom could I share this? I'm currently grading a batch of Brit Lit essays. I'm reading one now that is particularly weak. But it does contain this little gem. Enjoy:

"Gawain in a way is a poster child for chivalry, modesty, and the ideas of being a genital knight."

Giggle.

Hilarious excerpt. Thanks for sharing -- wish the papers I'm grading had anything that entertaining! For now, they're just dismal.

Give that student an A! It wasn't an accident at all!
