    Who cares if it isn’t a word? It’s so tasty that it ought to be.

    hmm, perhaps there is a market there for headphones and apps that will allow kids to study on the buses. Imagine a whole bus of kids just staring at their little screen-devices.

    Don’t they already, with their little phones and texting, etc?

    I think the full phrase is the Taft-Hartley Commutative Property of Quantum Entanglement.

    Maybe you CAN re-organize thought processes by re-arranging the concepts. Maybe even sequence…
    Except the teacher’s TEST will be in HIS terms. If you ‘GET’ it but can’t explain it in HIS terms, you’re in trouble.

    A LOT of science and tech is in the vocabulary…theirs.

    I’m trying that just to get them to be quiet on the ride to Grandma’s house. We’ll see how well it works.

    If Caulfield wasn’t a bit of a loner, he could form a posse commutative.

    In math, A + B = B + A is an example of a commutative operation. Caulfield’s riff is a little more like A*(B+C) = AB + AC — a transitive operation. Haven’t thought about this since 10th grade!

    The actual quote “A little LEARNING is a dangerous thing…” would not be nearly as funny.

    In a similar vein: If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

    This is a particularly funny strip, since the original quote is mostly misquoted anyway!

    A little learning is a dangerous thing
    Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring
    There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain
    And drinking l largely sobers us again (!)
