>I have 40 students between Chaucer and Middle English, pretty evenly distributed between the two classes.
Bullock has 27 between his two classes in subjects you might describe as “Life! Liberty! The Pursuit of Happiness!” And “American Issues that Really Matter RIGHT NOW!”
While I want Bullock’s enrollments to be better because a) I love him, b) he’s a great teacher, and c) his subjects ARE pretty important in an “every American should know this” kind of way, especially in an election year, still, I can’t help but say…
Score one for the medievalist!
But to console Bullock, I offer him this song and cartoon about his favorite meat, pork. Actually, you should all go watch this video — it’s hilarious. Warning for the squeamish (or in Karl‘s case, a heads up): it features porcine cannibalism. (H/T Profgrrrrl.)
