Folks are dumb where I come from,
They ain’t had any learning.
Still they’re happy as can be
Doin’ what comes naturally

Today I stood in the hallway of the engineering department at a local university, and I spied a poster that a student had created, the content of which reminded me that I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, not an Engineering degree.
However, only 15 feet away from this glaring reminder that psi don’t know my sigma from a rho in the ground…that I’m upsilon a creek without an iota of a paddle, this sign was posted over the drinking fountain.
Apparently it is possible to respect the labeled data without knowing not to dispose of solid waste in the drinking fountain. In a related story, I had trouble finding a restroom, so this tale could take a dreadful turn that I’d rather not contemplate.
As I recall, none of the drinking fountains in the arts department had warning signs posted above them. I’m staring to feel better about that BFA.
