Website Wednesday

Website Wednesday is a regular feature in which we highlight one (or a couple) of sites from the Billions floating around the Intertoobz that just might help you with your Herculean task of educating inquiring minds. Any and all suggestions for future editions are welcome.

After being on hiatus for a couple of weeks, due to my inability to find the time to review my tech sources owing to a grading back up of painful (but not unprecedented) proportion, Website Wednesday returns, now with comedy!

I found THIS ONE about student writing yesterday, while skimming through Leiter Reports, (the new Philosophical Gourmet is going live any day) where I saw the blog post title, “Some Students Ain’t Writing So Good…” and it may me laugh out loud. I think I even snorted.

Just so you aren’t surprised, the site is called  Sh*t My Students Write, only the first word doesn’t have an asterisk, so if you’re a little squirrelly about cuss words on your work computer, you might want to wait until you get home. I’m not, though (it’s a WORD!), so I think you should go check it out. RIGHT NOW. It’s hilarious. Seriously. Just what you need. Go here and you won’t be sorry. Great for composition classes, too!

I presume it is modeled after the spectacularly hilarious site called  Sh*tMy Kids Ruined, which turned into a book and has been a source of mirth (and coping) for parents for a few years now. So if you didn’t find the first one funny, maybe its inspiration will be…

 

I swear.

  1. My favorite thus far, probably because we’ve been talking about Socrates all semester, and ordering Penguin Classics for my Great Books class next semester:

    “Plato wrote the last days of Socrates, and describes within that document how Socrates comes to accept his death is 399 B.C. The text was written the years following his death but wasn’t officially published by Penguin Classics until 1954.”

    PS: This is Kamran. I’m changing my name to partake in the “[discipline x]is[sexy(modifier)]” arms race.

  2. Page 5. “I was in a relationship with this guy, but it was spermatic.”
    Too funny – in a W.T.F. kinda’ way.
    This is mid-term Lounge material. I’m glad you posted this week. I needed some entertainment.

  3. Lots of laughing out loud- I enjoyed this one

    Post-race America

    Racism only exists in the eyes of the ignorant. Don’t people realize that Ghandi Mohandas put an end to rascism in America in the early part of the 18th century? Obviously not since professors keep qouting him. I don’t mean to sound holier than thou, but sometimes i think I have a better handle on the cultural constructions of the modern world.
