In the true spirit of this blog's title, "Evolutionary Entertainment," I bring you Part I in an ongoing series on the daily life of Homo professoris

Homo professoris in his home habitat.





"At long last, here we catch a glimpse the rarely seen professorial primate in his home habitat while he grooms his nasal passages in advance of the first day of classes. He has evolved this grooming habit to minimize distractions that students in the first row would otherwise experience. And because he descended from East Persian Ashkenazi Jews.

This is the next-to-last preparation for the start of fall classes. His final step will be to ensure that his fly is fully zipped."
