Best Line Ever

I read this in a student's essay today:

"The Constitution contains several laws, guidelines and amendments, but one of the most debated and controversial is the second amendment, the right to bear arms. When I say the right to bear arms I'm not talking about the upper extremities [of] a grizzly or polar bear, I am talking about the right to own firearms."

Even the blatant comma splice couldn't wipe the smile from my face. 


  1. Wow! You have a student who is nearly as funny as you are!

  2. That sounds too close to what I would have been tempted to write! That's great! And I love the picture of Smokey.

  3. Hey - I'm glad that you have students that cause you to smile!

  4. I think every American should have the right to a bear arm. I would prefer the kodiak kind.
