Chuting the chit

It has come to my attention that "shute", as in "the essay shute on level five into which students should shovel their innumerable essays for my beady-eyed collection tomorrow morning", is in fact spelt "chute". And there I was thinking the world held no surprises.

And there I was thinking that La Trobe Uni just payed this guy to hang around the department all day. Well, he looked nice and friendly. Maybe you could still give it a go... ?

"Shute" as in "Oh shoot, I have an essay due tomorrow!". "Chute" as in "Choo Choo! The essay train plows on into the wee small hours, full steam ahead!".

Merry... cough... marking!

Every so often, the title of someone's blog post makes your whole morning.
This is one of those times.
