Just Another Excuse to Talk About Aardvarks

Sometimes, school work will include questions where the correct answer is “none.”  For example, “Identify any subordinate clauses in this sentence: The movie was too long.”

Today, I started telling my classes that workbook assignments that ask them to write “none” as the answer to a question are boring.  Instead, I asked them to start putting “aardvark” as the answer to such questions.  This resulted in some practice questions in class going like this:

Me: So how many commas need to be added to this example to make it correct?

Class:  Aardvark.

Me: Very good.
