Look worse than whom?

Me or the mirror image of me both look and sound better than that dude is the point. Now I have to get in my rocketship so I can fly to India...

Why do you have to do that? We are having a summer vacation

I thought you were learning set theory at school? I found that to be odd, since many of my Indian friends went on vacation right now.

Thanks for telling ne ! Rocket fuel is very expensive.

I am in a higher grade now. So he does not teach us anymore

That is sad but it is part of life. You will leave many people behind quite soon.

Probability and Trig are very important, Abstract algebra is boring and so is group theory. I do not solve problems brilliantly, brilliant is a term used by math types. It is heavily dependent on their concept of beauty.

Kind of fat? I am more than a little handsome. A boring voice? No way, just ask the neighbors. All the m's are big blowhards therefore we have booming voices.

I do not wear disguises, I can frighten the kids here without them. You are beginning to suffer from the "The Many bobbym Syndrome." I too used to believe that the world would be a better place if their were millions of bobbym...

Guided by that principle, Brigadier General Bashem commisioned the labs here to clone me by a similar process that Lucas envisioned in his movies. Soon there were many thousands of them in captivity in more than 20 underground labs.

Needless to say, they were too smart for the security force that was created to contain them. A battle took place and they killed their gorilla faced captors and made it to all corners of this planet...

As soon as they established themselves they tried to do computational math and that gave their position away. General Bashem and his friends down below hunted them down and exterminated them. Only I remain to tell this story...

So you see, your teacher is not a bobbym. To be cured of TMbS you must put on the ruby slippers, tap them together 3 times and say, "there is no place like home, there in no place like home, there is no place like home."

bobbym, Are you our maths teacher at school?

Yes, that is what I say. I am the last of the clones and I can not zip around the planet.
