Blink, blink--

So we have internal series abbreviations for our various series. I would not have picked the abbreviation they did for "Kindergarten Literature." No, no, no.

Well it's about as bad as the abbreviation for "The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society"... man I love Red Dwarf.

That one was *intentionally* funny. I saw a T-Shirt with the Committee's name on it. Hee.

The headmistress at the school where my father used to teach decided a while back to take advantage of the financial incentives offered by Tony Blair's government for educational institutions that opted to "specialise" in one particular area of the curriculum.  With their newfound "Specialist School" status, she needed to change the school's name to reflect its new slant.

Her proposed rebranding made it all the way up the ranks to, and past, the Board of Governors and was enthusiastically embraced along its course.  It failed, however, at the final hurdle: the announcement to all the pupils at an end of term assembly.

The headmistress simply could not understand for several minutes why the name "Sawyers Hall Institute of Technology" could have caused an entire hall full of children to erupt in spontaneous laughter...
