From my high school days I remember a lot of friends bragging about how they could pass any class without studying. These are usually the kids who more or less breezed through high school, taking only the classes that were required and not bothering attempting the more challenging pre-college courses. I have to give them credit: they did manage to get by with A’s and B’s with a minimal effort. They walked on graduation day like everyone else.

In the movie Monty Python’s Holy Grail, King Arthur of the Britons is charged with taking a sacred journey to recover one of the most revered relics of all time. He travels to distant lands, forms a band of some of the greatest knights of his era, and withstands wave after wave of ruthless taunting by the French. True to typical blogging form, I will now explain, through a vague and overextended metaphor, how an awesome parody of an Anglican myth relates to your college experience.
