Whoever wrote Darrell deserves at least an A-. Paul L., no better than a B-, I’d say.
I think this semester Darrell was actually two students, and one was definitely better than the other. Or maybe he’s always been two personalities. Maybe we should call them Ditsy Darrell and Demented Darrell if they evah come back.
Also, I think ppGaz has been selling the answers to various spoofers, so disciplinary action may be required.
Two annoying requests I’ve received in the last days of this semester:
“The final project is due at the exact time that the final exam ends. Could we have a three hour extension, to account for this lost time?” (For a project assigned six weeks ago. No.)
“For various important reasons I’d like to get my final grade as soon as possible. Could I please take the final exam a week early, and and ask you also to grade it and my project a week early?” (Also no.)

It certainly seemed like it. Especially the way he’d go from calling you a traitorous cockroach subhuman in one thread to hail-fellow-well-metting you in the next one. It really made no sense, unless he was written by committee or was subject to violent mood swings/personality disorders.
Wait; you’re putting together final grades in May?
Damn. Wish I’d gone to your college. We were still taking finals in June.
It’s West Virginia. Spring is prime meth-producing time. Every day longer in school is lost profit and fewer lost teeth.
That’s a pretty damn plausible explanation for Darrell’s absence, anyway.
This never ceases to make me laugh my ass off.
Why does anybody care about Darrell? Right now, he/she/it/they is/are not posting — is Darrell the BJCC equivalent of Banquo’s ghost?
I pine for the day you closet thespians speak in English.
Out, out, damned Scot!
Punchy, as a devout Pastafarian and sometime pirate, I take great offense that my religion makes you laugh.
However, since I have every Friday off (religious holiday), I find I can’t hold a grudge.
May his noodly appendage touch you.
Lefties handle losing a election in their own civilized way.
I guess that liberal “stay out of my bedroom” talking point does not apply when you have more than 2 children per couple.
Nicely played, spoof.
