Student #1: Look, Mr. Orlin, we all signed this petition!
Me: “We, the undersigned, would like to have Calculus all day, every day.” Hey, I’m glad you guys are enjoying the class.
Student #2: Can you change the schedule?
Me: Well, logistics aside, you guys only got two signatures on this.
Student #1: What are you talking about? Annie signed it too!
Me: Her name is in your handwriting. And she’s glaring at us.
Student #2: Look, it’s a petition. Take it or leave it.

Umm, the text says “two signatures”, but the picture shows three. This reminds me of the definition of absent-minded professor: one who while saying A and writing B, means C; however, D is correct….
Well, they had three signatures – as it says in the dialogue, one was forged.
But every kid I’ve taught will gladly tell you that my mistakes-per-minute rate is impressively high.
9/10 Would sign.
I think I might be the 1/10. “Calculus all day every day” would be hard to lesson plan.
