*Overheard in class today:*

Prof: "A text defines X concept as _____."

(The quote and citation appear on an overhead. One of the authors of the text, wrote an article that we discussed in depth earlier in the semester.)

Sam: So and So, wrote a text book. Hmmm.

Prof: Yeah, he's rather prolific.

Sam: Or his grad students are.

Prof: Says the cynic.

Sam Shrugs.

Prof: Yeah, you're probably right.
