    A Funny Thing Happened on the way to . . .

    The university where I work covers a wide array of disciplines. While driving through campus on the way to my office I casually noticed that one of the buildings was tented for fumigation. A few moments later I realized it was the Entomology Museum building . . . . a few moments later I laughed my head off.

    I use a lot of words on campus that have no place in normal conversation

    I know, when I can't come up with the correct word, it really bugs me.

    He shoots! He scores! I was wondering how long it would beetle someone came up with a wise guy remark like that.
