Snark: to annoy or irritate

"Snark" has been in English language dictionaries since at least 1906, and Lewis Carroll used the word to describe a mythological animal in his poem, The Hunting of the Snark (1874). Most recently, the word has come to characterize snappish, sarcastic, or mean-spirited comments or actions directed at those who annoy or irritate us.

At first, this blog was just going be a place to gripe, but because it's more satisfying to take action than it is to merely complain, now most of the posts/reposts suggest ways to get involved in solving problems.

Jesus in the Garden?

Please don't tell me that this is what Jesus was doing in the Garden of Gethsemane. Oh well, so much for rational thought in "higher" education, which is clearly not what's happening at Louisiana College.  Besides, if you watch carefully, it looks as if he actually palms the worm and drops it on the floor when he opens his hand.

From "Tweed," part of The Chronicle of Higher Education:

Warning: This Video NSFW (Not Safe for Worms)

Thanks to a report in The Town Talk, of Alexandria, La., our colleague Jack Stripling ran across this video of Joe Aguillard, president of the Baptist-affiliated Louisiana College, eating a live earthworm during a recent chapel service on the campus.  Tweed cautions readers without college-leadership experience not to try to replicate this stunt.
