* BowtiesAreCool:
-->'''Andy:''' You wore a bow tie to school?
-->'''Jason:''' It's common knowledge that people with bow ties appear smarter. Since I already score perfect on all my tests, The only hope I have of improving my grades this year is to boost my "intangibles". I also wore an Albert Einstein mask, until the nose got dented during dodgeball.
-->'''Andy:''' Jason, I have a meeting with your teacher next week...
-->'''Jason:''' Actually, she wants to have it sooner, if possible.
