Well, supposedly, in really tough college courses, the professor starts the first day of class by saying, "Look to your left. Look to your right. One of you will not be passing this class." In other words, the course is so tough that one out of three students would not pass the course. Apparently, Fry's class wasn't as hard, so they had to look in nine other directions, because only one out of twelve wouldn't be passing the course.
I haven't seen this episode, but thanks for y'all talking about it... I will be taking on my first lecture course in about a year and will have to use that! talk about a ice-breaker, i'm sure the students will enjoy a prof with a sense of humor!
