I was just attempting to study some economics, and I came across an unintentionally funny passage in the book.
The professor of this class also wrote the book, and one of the techniques he uses in writing is to use "she," "her," etc. almost exclusively, rather than the conventional masculine pronouns. Obviously, he didn't think this through, because his strategy led to the following:
There's long been a market for sperm donors. The article cited an ad for such a donor. The ad said that a desirable donor should be about 5'10" tall, athletic, and have at least 1400 on her SATs.
If you need me to explain why that's funny, you shouldn't be here.Posted by CD on February 26, 2006 09:30 PM | TrackBack
