(I’m in a large gym where I’ve just finished proctoring a first-year mathematics final exam. I and a bunch of the other teaching assistants and instructors are frantically sorting the exams roughly by section into somewhat tidy piles so that they can be put into boxes and carried to the room where we’re going to mark them. While we’re in the middle of this, one student, a middle-aged man, comes up to us.)

Student: “Thank you, Department of Linear Algebra, for a most excellent examination!”

(We managed to hold in the laughter until he was out of the gym.)
