So remember that scene in the Rodney Dangerfield classic Back to School where he gets Kurt Vonnegut to write his paper on Kurt Vonnegut?
Well, some dumbass up here in Canadia tried to do pretty much that that with a Sean Dixon book assigned for a grade 11 class. First, they contacted a reviewer they found on the internet. The reviewer tweeted about it. The author saw the tweet...and the rest is a hella awesome blog post, titled "The kid who was supposed to read my book". The Globe and Mail has now picked up the story, ensuring that an appropriate amount of ridicule will ensue.
While I encourage you to read the whole blog entry, I ask you: who among us hasn't wanted to smack the Flakey McFlakersons who keep asking us to do the work for them just like this?
"All you have to do is use your powers—the same powers you use to seek help from half of the internet including the author of the fucking book! All you have to do is use those powers to interpret the exercise you've been given in a way that makes you able to do it!"
Use your powers, indeed. Kudos, Mr. Dixon.
