Where All The Women Are Strong

A professorial friend meets with the department chair for the annual raking over the coals.

Well, I'm just not sure the numbers for your course evaluations are high enough. You know, they're good, but we'd like to see higher.
-Okay, why?
-We want all the professors in our department to be above average!
-[Hah, ha ha ha... oh, he's serious.]

The friend is now formerly professorial, and very much happier thereby.

In related news, tomorrow I get to be similarly raked by my advisor. It's the highlight of my year, let me tell you. What do I want to accomplish by June? To graduate. Ha ha ha.
