Out of all the "speeches are like skirts" analogy posts, this is one of the better ones.
Speeches and skirts: just shut up and show me your vagina already..
So much better than the typical skirt-speach analogy
What's a speach? Is that like a speech about peaches?
right above the knee
The same joke was homepaged just a few days ago, i guess a lot of people like short skirt jokes.
I don't think it was the same one .
The usual joke is "short enough to cover the topic, long enough to keep it interesting." I modified mine to include why they shouldn't be too long, and so that I could use the phrase "batty librarian." I love that phrase.
I believe you mean "short enough to keep it interesting, and long enough to cover the topic."
Right. That. Yes.
I agreed and then I remembered the Gettysburg Address :s
Abe Lincoln doesn't even remember the Gettysburg address...
That's because he's dead
I am terrible at speeches and essays and the like. But I still have a very bright future in education because the languages and humanities isn't all there is to school. Just thought I'd point that out.
It's...um...I was just...it's a joke. No offense intended to anyone, just...joking. Sorry.
Damn, I just re-read my comment and I sound way too bitter. I wasn't offended or anything I just like pointing out other stuff that may not be on peoples mind. I like the post
Having a short skirt is whats implies about education.
Besides, IT'S JUST A JOKE!
how did this make homepage AGAIN??
Mine is a parody of those. It says why they also shouldn't be too long and it uses the phrase "batty librarian," so it's not the same joke. As I explained above.
Wait, explain the joke once more.. I wasn't paying attention the first six times.
The shorter the better
I think I read a similar thing ages ago
And I liked that version better
Lemme see if I can remember...
"Essays are like skirts, long enough to cover everything, but short enough to be interesting"
