HIGHER LEARNING? A few examples



Among the college bloopers collected by Anders Henriksson:
"The Germans took the by-pass around France's Marginal Line. This was known as the 'Blintz Krieg.'""Corruption grew especially ripe in Zaire, where Mobutu was known to indulge in more than an occasional little armadillo.""The Boston Tea Party was held at Pearl Harbor.""Americans ... wanted no involvement in the French and Indian War because they did not want to fight in India.""Moses was told by Jesus Christ to lead the people out of Egypt into the Sahaira [sic] Desert. The Book of Exodus describes this trip ... including the Ten Commandments, various special effects and the building of the Suez Canal.""Zorroastrologism was founded by Zorro. This was a duelist religion.""Christianity was just another mystery cult until Jesus was born. The mother of Jesus was Mary, who was different from other women because of her immaculate contraption."
