SLAPSTICK GRADING POLICY

Hobo Teacher says he is morally opposed to dropping students’ lowest grades of the term since, after all, he put in a lot of work grading all those assignments. But he does—jokingly—speculate about making a possible deal with students on the pass/fail bubble:

Let's say I'll drop the [lowest] grade, if and only if—I get to slap them. Don't get me wrong. I'm not talking about anything "violent-violent," but, you know, "Three Stooges violent." You know, I could stick my fist out and tell the student to hit it to where I do that windmill punch to the top of their noggin. Throw in a bit of eye poking and put a few wrenches to some noses, then I'll be aces. … Grades would be dropping left and right.

Word of advice: Unless you’re really good at Three Stooges impressions, we wouldn’t try to this at home, etc.
