It’s A Fat Book

| Learning | December 24, 2013

(We are reading “The Great Gatsby” in English. We are discussing Myrtle from chapter two. We spent the last half hour coming to the conclusion that Myrtle was a fat prostitute.)

Teacher: “Can anyone tell me why Myrtle Wilson appears in chapter two instead of being introduced in chapter one?”

Student: “Because she was too fat to fit in the first chapter.”

Teacher: “That answer was so bad that I’m taking away points for that one.”
