Bon Mots from English 1A

I was waived from taking English Composition at UCLA.  My IB test scores were high enough for the powers that be (heretofore in this blog referred to as the PTB) to decide that yes, I do know how to read and write English well enough to succeed in post-secondary education.  

Apparently this is not good enough for the PTB at San Joaquin Delta College.  

It's no real hardship or annoyance.  The class is easy enough, and I keep myself amused by coming up with silly titles to the assigned papers.  Case in point: 

"I Got It From My Mama: A study of matriarchal families and value systems."

I didn't take IB. The best thing I could've come up with was "Yo mama is so stupid, when you ask about value system she pulls out her 99 cent discount card."
