(We are going to have a quiz in journalism class about AP Style and one of the questions is whether Wikipedia is or is not an acceptable source for articles. We have been given the questions, but not the answers, in advance. This happens before class starts.)

Me: “Happy birthday, [professor].”

Professor: “It’s not my birthday, but thanks.”

Me: “Well, your Wikipedia article says it’s your birthday.”

Professor: “Well, that’s why Wikipedia is not a reliable source for your articles.”

Other Student: “Thanks for giving us one of the quiz answers, [professor]!”

Professor: “Oops. Oh well. Now you all should get at least one point…”
