Yesterday, Dr. Rollston told us about his adventures while preparing for his drive to Knoxville for a lecture* he was to deliver last night. His car needed a good vacuuming, for some reason. He was already dressed for the lecture with a coat and wearing his “Favorite Hopkins tie.” Yes, I believe you see where this is going.
As he was cleaning, his tie got sucked into the vacuum cleaner.
According to The Incredibles, superheroes cannot wear capes because it gets caught in stuff and could be deadly.
According to Rollston, Old Testament professors shouldn’t wear ties while vacuuming.
* You have to register with the Knoxville newspaper in order to read the article. It’s an interesting piece, though.
