Old Emus for Physics

It is time to reveal just a part of  the series of innovations I have been introducing to the curriculum here in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Sussex, since I became head earlier this year.

In order to develop further the problem-solving skills of students in the Department of Physics & Astronomy, I have decided that  all modules OLD EMUS will henceforth be referred to by anagrams of their actual titles. For example, in the forthcoming Semester I will be teaching second-year students MONSTER DELICACY.

Among the other old emus to be taken by Year 2 students of SHY PICS are:

MANIAC MUNCH QUEST

UNFITTING COMIC SPICE

SPIN HISS SLICKLY

A TINSMITH’S DEPTH, SARCASTICALLY

ASTHMATIC MODE HALTED for SPICY SHITS

and for options there are

TRANSPLANTED ASS (compulsory for those into RACY SOPHISTS)

ATHEIST PSYCHIC LORE

This list does not include the compulsory A RICH SORT’S PLAYBOY.

I hope this clarifies the situation.

  1. Well, that’s very well for you lot at the SUIT FOXINESS SURVEY.

  2. George Jones Says:

    Are you going to meet the GAZER ON LUGE in your lectures?

  3. Ah, that time of year again.

    Here in a A MINT THONG I’ll be teaching the ever-popular 3rd year course on EXCRETORY STEAMSHIPS, plus a compulsory 1st year module on developing problem-solving skills: ACTIVATE SQUISHY PINT.

      I am now thinking of you in a mint thong.

      • Not sure how to respond to that, but I’ve just spotted another anagram for my 1st year course: EVICT THIS QUASI-PANTY. Maybe this is a sign to move on from A MINT THONG…

      • telescoper Says:

        Do you have any STOUT LIAR there these days?

        ps. If you don’t need the thong any more, perhaps you could put it on ebay?

      • Only in year one, but it’s becoming a challenge to find enough TROUTS with our ever-growing numbers. We also have weekly AERIAL ROBOTS of course.

        I think I’ve grown to like A MINT THONG, so will probably stick with it for now…

      • Will you stick with it, or will it stick to you?
