Who ordered the double cheese and sausage?

Spicoli, Student: Right here, dude.
For you, dude.

Mr. Hand, Teacher: Am l hallucinating? What in the hell do you think you’re doing?
Spicoli, Student: Learning about Cuba, and having some food.
Mr. Hand, Teacher: Mr. Spicoli, you’re on dangerous ground. You’re causing a major disturbance on my time.
Spicoli, Student: I’ve been thinking about this, Mr. Hand. If I’m here and you’re here, doesn’t that make it our time? There’s nothing wrong with a feast on ‘our’ time.
Mr. Hand, Teacher: You’re absolutely right. It is our time: Yours, mine and everyone else’s in this room.

But it is my class. Hamilton, Brandt, Cornfield, up front! Mr. Spicoli has been kind enough to bring us a snack. Be my guest. Help yourselves. Get a good one.
