Plagiarism

Since it's been a recent topic on this blog and others, I thought I'd pass on Stephen Colbert's analysis of plagiarism:

Life imitates Art.
Art imitates Life.
Therefore, art imitates art. That's just math.


I'll have to remember that next time I'm grading a batch of papers copied straight from the internet.

I love math, and I love English, so therefore I love myself. But we both know that's not true.

Math is not English. Tell your students.
