Below is an actual email exchange that happened yesterday--only the names were changed to protect the innocent (and egotistical).

FROM: Pretentious Teacher
RE: Last Minute Boy Scout's Speech
As per a request from Last Minute Boy Scout.....I am letting you know that he gave a 6 min 30 sec (I time them) presentation today on "Herpetology, envenomation, and neurotoxins" today in Comparative Anatomy and Physiology class. He had a fine grasp of the subject matter, was technically accurate, insightful, and was able to answer difficult questions after his speech to the class. If you should require further information (I might!) about this communication, feel free to let me know!

He forgot to add A.S.S. to his other list
Wait, when did you become the merit badge lady?
Spill it, reader. We all know a big SUV or expensive sports car means a man is compensating for something. Does the length of his signature line mean anything?
