Dan's Irrational Academic Phobias

Dan

I’m becoming resigned to the idea of getting a B in the class.

Kermit

Don’t you have an … A, right now?

Dan

I have an A average, but I’m not terribly optimistic about today.

Dan

The grade is based mostly on the slides.

Kermit

Didn’t you write the slides?

Dan

I contributed probably more than anyone else.

Kermit

1. You’re good at the class.
2. A big part of your grade is taken from slides for this presentation.
3. The biggest part of the slides is written by you who, by 1, are good at the class.
4. But magic fairy ponies have come in the night and changed the slides.
Ergo you are pessimistic. Your logic is flawless.

Dan

I enjoy how you encourage me, and negate it, but it’s not really negated because it’s logical until the negation. It’s kind of like you’re giving me a shoulder rub, and then you punch me in the face, while you’re winking at me.
