More Uses For Dead Rats

Last week when we did instructor evaluations, I gave my least favourite prof a pretty harsh score. As always, I used constructive criticism, with lots of suggestions for improvement.

Wednesday in class he was still terrible -of course he wont read the evaluation until after the exams and everything, but this isn't his first term teaching. I'm sure he's had plenty of criticism from his past students. Those little forms just aren't getting the message accross.

What we really need is something to get his attention, like a dead rat in his mailbox. I've always wanted to put a dead rat in someone's mailbox. But no, I realized, that's not very helpful because it doesn't tell him how to improve. What we should really do is wrap the dead rat in the instructor evaluation form, and put that in his mailbox. There are about a hundred students in the class, so we're gonna need a lot of rats.

Im not really sure where to get large numbers of dead rats, other than ones preserved in formaldahyde for dissection, and you really couldn't use those because they swmell simply atrocious.

I think I can get a discount on a large order of live rats at a pet shop, and I'm pretty sure you can make dead rats from live ones.

Yeah I had bad professors like that back in college -- and for the love of god, they need to stop being dense and realize that they're not born to teach. Honestly, I sometimes don't know why these people get hired. If they do good research projects for the school -- let them stay there! And away from the classrooms!

Hahahahahaha! I think you need to put two dead rats in his mailbox, but don't leave any fingerprints! I had some really terrible professors, one in Chemistry who filled the hours with anecdotes... what a loser.

First of all, LOL!

You could always use a fake rat, it gets about the same scare, but lacks the smell.

Wow Thea, you've developed a following.

This reminds me of my favorite Arrested Developemnt quote:
