Dreadful sorry about the intrusive Tripod ads. We have pulled up stakes and moved to an ad-free environment*.

* Ok, there are a few small ads at the bottom of the main page, BUT Top5 Pets directly benefits from them. We keep them unobtrusive.

             The Top 10 Signs That Your Professor's Pet
                       Is Grading Your Exams

10> The comments are no less legible than usual, but you think
     that this time the brown stains aren't coffee.

9> His parrot's penmanship is better.

8> Instead of red pen marks chewing you out for incorrect
     answers, you find that the incorrect answers themselves
     have been chewed out.

7> Why else would 50% of your Physics grade depend on your
     answer to the ball throwing question?

6> "Your essay was particularly weak, your short answers show
     a complete lack of comprehension of the topic and you can't
     fill in blanks to save your life. Yet *I'm* the one who got
     neutered -- go figure."

5> You fail your history midterm because all your dates are off
     by a factor of seven.

4> You get an F on your Egyptian mythology paper for referring
     to the practice of cat-worship as "archaic."

3> "For a story of mice and men, you seemed awfully focused on
     the men..."

2> Your Dramatic Writing paper comes back marked "Me and my
     buddies did better than this typing at random."

          and the Number 1 Sign That Your Professor's Pet
                      Is Grading Your Exams...

1> Papers that were stored in your gym bag invariably get the
     highest marks.

Forget intellectual content, just doing it "on the paper" wins
lavish praise.

Offers to raise your grade -- "if you scratch my tum, then I'll
scratch yours."
           (Wade Kwon, Birmingham, AL)

The paper is smeared with wire wheel grease, it smells vaguely of
sawdust and your grade is spelled out in little brown pellets.
           (James Knowles, Bellingham, WA)

The returned exam is covered with slightly more slobber than
           (James Knowles, Bellingham, WA)

Your bluebook wasn't so much graded as it was shaken to pieces.
