In class today, my professor created a powerpoint presentation with several slides. On each slide was a picture of somone famous. She then asked us to identify the people. We went through the slides twice, the first time writing down who we thought the people were, and the second time the professor telling us the answers. I've decided that my class is very, very stupid.
I was one of three people (out of 20-25) who correctly identified Nancy Pelosi (no, this isn't the mock, though it should be mock-worthy).
I was one of seven people to correctly identify Dick Cheney. Yikes.
Once Cheney's picture came up the second time, one girl in the back yells, "That's Barack Obama! He's the guy I'm voting for in the election! He's the guy who's going to make this country better."
Okay, yeah that hurt. I'm not sure how a person could get Barack Obama confused with the guy who's been vice president for the last eight years. It kept going though. One of the other pictures was Arlon Spector (Pennsylvania Senator, who's very, very WHITE...yes, that's important). She identified him as Colin Powell.
She's graduating in May, folks. Be afraid.
