If you didn’t watch Zoobilee Zoo…you missed out. It was probably the less obnoxious, more entertaining “Wiggles” of my childhood.
Anyway, as I was writing about the characteristics of each of my professors… it reminded me of the introduction to Zoobilee Zoo.
So here we are: “Let us introduce the Zoobles to you!”
You have the 1970s Harvard graduate who talks about the crazy times he had getting tear gassed in the dorms…and yet drinks a venti DECAF coffee every morning (he’s a wild man!)
Then there is the “Dr. Dr. J.D”- That’s right. He has is Doctorate in Psychology, Philosophy and his law degree. He is one of those “too smart for your own good so you just can’t dumb it down enough for us to understand it” sorta guys.
And then we have the guy whose main joy in life is to scare the first years. By now, you realize he is just fooling you…but last semester, this guy was terrifying. He does the best Socratic method of any teacher, but by now most students call him out for picking on them…and he can barely hold back a smile when they do because he knows he has done his job, by giving us confidence.
My personal favorite, is the man who never told us where he went to school. He doesn’t flaunt his Harvard education, and likes to ask how we are doing every Monday morning. First semester he asked students to eat lunch with him in the library, and knows each person’s name (without looking at the seating chart).
And then there is the eccentric, constitutional-loving professor. He is the lawyer who puts his heart and soul into what he teaches. He thrives on laughter, oh…and did I mention he blogs for us? Very down to earth, he also loves to ridicule the rich and use other professors in all of his hypos.
Each has their quirks, but they’re all pretty awesome. I had expected law teachers to be much more…dull. Anyway, if they dressed up in costumes, I bet they'd make a pretty great tv show.
Welcome to my Zoobilee Zoo!
