After an English test with particularly disastrous results, the teacher scolds the class and then she asks that everybody, who thinks that they are not particularly good at English, should stand up. For quite a while all students just look at each other, but nobody moves. Finally, little Johnny slowly stands up. "Very good, Johnny", says the teacher, "at least you realise where you weakness is and that gives you an opportunity to improve". "Oh, but I don't think I'm very bad at English, Madam" says Johnny, "but I simply felt sorry for you standing there all alone."

Along comes a fox and asks him, "What are you doing tapping away on a laptop?"

The hare replies, "I´m writing my thesis on "A Practical Approach To How Hares Gobble Up Foxes"!

The fox laughs with scorn and after a short discussion, both go into the cave. A short time later, the hare comes back out, nonchalantly picking his teeth with a fox claw. He sits back down and continues to tap away.

Along comes a wolf and asks him, "What are you doing tapping away on a laptop?"

The hare replies, "I´m writing my thesis on "A Practical Approach To How Hares Gobble Up Foxes"!

The fox laughs with scorn and after a short discussion, both go into the cave. A short time later, the hare comes back out, nonchalantly twirling a wolf-tail. He sits back down and continues to tap away.

Along comes a lion and asks him, "What are you doing tapping away on a laptop?"

The hare replies, "I´m writing my thesis on "A Practical Approach To How Hares Gobble Up Lions"!

The lion laughs with scorn and after a short discussion, both go into the cave. A short time later, the hare comes back out, nonchalantly scratching his back with a lion paw. He sits back down and continues to tap away.

... And what is the point or moral to our tale?: (Every scholastic tale should be educational and have a twist in the tail!)

It´s neither important nor academic WHO we are; nor WHAT our thesis is all about.

The key issue is WHO is "guiding and advising us" (Our TUTOR)!

The cave was home to a great, grumpy, hungry, post-hibernatory bear!
