Another Sign I Watch Too Much Top Model

Students were complaining about having to actually know something for the test. They complained that in the real world that they could always just look things up.

What I did not say: "Have you seen the times on Top Model when at panel Tyra asks the models who they think that the most influential models and designers are today, and then Tyra chews out the model when she can't name a single working model or fashion designer? Do you think Tyra would be any happier if the model said, 'I don't know, but I can use my phone to look that up on wikipedia?' Some times you just have to know things."
