(Mike Peters the artist, lifted from facebook)
As some smartarse pointed out, Goldman Sachs is not a sentence. No, that should be life without parole.
I'm reminded of another classroom exchange, fictional, from my boyhood -
Teacher: Construct a sentence containing the words 'analyse' and 'anatomy'.
Pupil: My analyse over the ocean, so bring back my anatomy.

"In the parlance of our times" the word 'pupil' has been replaced by 'student'. I strive to preserve my old world charm.
