Miss Nomer

A man is the president of the Salt Lake chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Kind of like making me President of the Daughters of the American Revolution or Paperback Writer president of The Hair Club for Men. Now there's nothing wrong with a man working to fight against drunk driving, or even a group of men and women fighting together, I just think the name should better reflect the composition of the group. So, that's why I'm proposing they change their name to better reflect this. Mothers and Men Against Drunk Driving. They could use any of the anacronyms listed above, I won't even expect to be paid for it (my favorite is the last one, I'd even pay them to use that one).

Nice.
It loses the double entendre, but PADD (parents against drunk driving) could be used.
Or they can just keep it the way it is and let it stand as a great example for me to use when explaining irony to my 9th graders.....

but,as a math teacher, I really liked the M-squared-ADD.

A Paperback Writer said...

Yes, I caught that. I'm not completely mathematically stupid, you know.

Max said...

No, no, no. The only reason I spelled out the squared that time is because Blogger won't let me do powers. The first one I had to make a picture and upload it. Haven't figured out how to do that on the comments yet, so I had to type it out.

Oh, I was wondering how you got your keyboard to do that anyway.
I know how to do accent marks and the tilde (~) sign over an n (ñ) for Spanish words, but I have no clue how to do powers. And the other day I wanted to type a square root symbol in a math limerick for you, and I couldn't figure out where it was....

Max said...

Yup, I had to work the tricky way around it. Same thing if I had to do the square root symbol, I would have had to type it in on word or something and do a screen capture. Pain in the butt, I even tried copy and paste, but it lost all the formatting.....
