Saints Preserve Us

A classic scene from my class of eager first year students this morning:

Kfluff: All right, your homework was to go into blogger and use their search function to investigate criteria for good and bad blogging. What did you like? What did you not like? And just out of curiosity, what did you use as your search term? I suggested that you choose something you were particularly interested in--a show, a hobby, etc. What'd you use?

Student 1: Star Wars

Student 2: Desperate Housewives

Student 3: Alicia Keys

Student 4: The Dave Matthews Band

Student 5: tennis

Student 6: Jesus

??!!!! Where do you go from there, exactly? Umm, wow, I bet you found some fascinating blog posts with the word "Jesus" in them. Jesus may put you one step over the line, and he may drop kick you through the goal posts of life, but "Jesus is my blog search term"? That just seems wrong, somehow.

The next sound you hear will be of the sizzle as I'm hit by lightning.
