I think the kids like it when I "get down" verbally....

{Professor Property helpfully comparing a case of farmworker housing rights to a movie situation he thinks we can all understand}

Prof: "It's just like in that movie Animal House...you guys have all seen that right?"
Students: {various affirmative grumblings}
Prof: "Well, remember when they forced all the jocks out of their dorms and they all had to live on cots in the gym?"
Students: {puzzled looks all around then one brave student raises his hand}
Prof: "Yes?" {clearly exasperated that we aren't responding to his attempt to suck us in by using examples we can understand}
Student: "I think that was Revenge of the Nerds"
Prof: "Oh my god, I can't believe I messed that up"
Students: {nearly everyone tears themselves away from Bejeweled long enough to laugh uproariously}
