I got an e-mail from Thomas Wayne today, and he wanted me to pass it on to the crowd here at Buffet o’ Blog.
I just remembered something that has confused me since college, and I thought some of you might could help me figure it out. Let me explain. One day while I was in college at UAM, I decided to go to class. I hadn’t been in a while, and either my classroom moved or I forgot which room it was in. So I ended up in some intellectual-type class, where they discussed and reasoned about abstract stuff. After I realized it wasn’t World History, I was about to leave, when the teacher started talking about dookie. I never expected to hear a college professor talk about dookie! So I stayed in there.
The professor quoted a statement and asked the people to explain what it meant. Here’s where I got confused. He said :
“The poop on my shoe is hypothetical.”
I looked at his shoes but didn’t see any poop. The people in the class gave a bunch of weird answers, some of them not even about poop at all. So I was confused… bewildered, even.
Anyway, I’ve been reading Buffet o’ Blog for a few months now, and I’ve seen a lot of important people here, along with some folks who use some really big words, so I figured somebody here might be able to help me out. Was the teacher saying he thought he might have some poop on his shoe but couldn’t see it? Or was he trying to confuse us? Or was there some type of hidden meaning in it? Does anybody have any ideas?
