My graduate students crack me up

Two of the grad students from my Chaucer class are very close friends, and one of them told me they jokingly refer to each other as "rivals." So get this: for their final papers in that class, one of them wrote on the Friar's Tale and the other wrote on the Summoner's Tale. Ha! Even cooler -- we didn't read these tales in the class, so they discovered the Friar-Summoner rivalry all on their own.

I love it when papers amuse me in surprising and positive ways -- it always makes the grading process easier.
