Spontaneous Election Metaphor

Yesterday one of my classes was brainstorming ideas for cartoon captions as a brief warm up.  One student came up with an especially funny line, and everybody else started copying it down on their own papers. 

“Oh, look at that!” I said.  “Your good work got recognized and envied, so it just became community property.”  I sighed, making a connection.  “Just like all our money after the election.” 

A handful of kids in the front row heard that muttered remark and, I’m glad to say, gave a knowing laugh.  Good to know there’s some sense out there.
