"Are you threatening me?"

That "Think.Respect." post got me thinking about students perceiving threats everywhere and sent me looking for that classic perceiver of threats:

Here's the original Cornholio episode. Don't miss the teacher, who seems very Madison, Wisconsin to me. Love his "Human Rights. Capitalism" diagram (which Beavis walks out on). And that quivering administrator... how apt.

My roommate works for the USAToday, and her proudest moment this year is getting "I need t.p. for my bunghole" in the paper in a Beavis and Butthead review.

I need an SAJA reporting form for my bunghole!

Never have I wanted so badly to click on a YouTube link while at work.

(I miss Beavis and Butt-head. How the same man can be responsible for that show and Office Space, yet be willing to take credit for King of the Hill?)

Professor Althouse: really, a citation to Beavis and Butthead? This sort of thing is beneath you. We members of the Academy must strive to uphold standards, not further debase them.

Well...I see someone woke up on the wrong side of the pomo interpretation, haven't we?

Now I know what I am doing during lunch. The teacher in B & B was a real hippie, I believe he drove a VW van. I once had a cornholio t-shirt that my brother bought me for Christmas. My wife didn't want me to wear it once we had kids, so I think she gave it to the Salvation Army.

My brother once tried to compare Beavis and Butthead to the two characters in "In Cold Blood". It was a drunken conversation, so I don't remember the details.

It also looks like Judge's new film, Idiocracy is pretty good even though it got buried by it's studio...

I just watched the episode again. It's the best.

Next time, I am at the mall, I gotta get a mew Beavis & Butthead t-shirt- my old one is in tatters.

Yes, King of the Hill- I don't get that show either.

I had forgotten how much I loved B&B. Thanks.

If you don't get King of the Hill, it's probably because of where you live.

Here at my house, we thought we were the only middle-aged women (feminists at that) who love Beavis and Butthead. When we enter an impressive building, one of us invariabley says, "This lobby, does it have ...?"

Jack, I had that exact same thought on this matter.

King of the Hill....has some great moments...When the boys meet their asian neighbor and inquire if he is Chinese or Japanese... He answers "Laotian". Their response "yes we know it's over the ocean, but are you Chinese or Japanese" Very funny..
