I would like to extend a handshake

from tony:

I would like to extend a handshake for this incredibly imaginative satire on ID that you have created and although I am a Christian and hold my own beliefs about God and creation. However, being a current engineering student, I completly agree with your views on science and how it should be taught in the classroom, however crudly stated they may be at times. With that I would like to extend a quote from my satire teacher from highschool that he said a few years back: “Satire is meant to seperate those who get the joke and the jackasses.”

Here’s to putting up with those jackasses some more. Good work. I hope to buy one of those sweet shirts soon.

    Wait, a satire teacher? I missed out in school…

    I had no idea that there are teachers of satire. But I suppose I should have guessed that. You can prolly find a teacher for any subject imaginable. It’s like all the different varieties of books, movies, magazines, songs, internet forums, and porn.

    I wish I had a satire teacher in my school. I doubt the administration would appreciate it, though.

    Now satire sounds like an almost bearable humanities class! Soooo jealous!

    I had a satire teacher. She was a normal English teacher, but she taught “Satire and Comedy” as an elective, and she wrote her lesson plans while watching “The Simpsons”. It was a good year.

    I’d imagine a satire teacher would annoy the others in the staff room though. Taking the piss all day long…
