Dear Mr. & Mrs. Smith,
Upon looking over your son Justin’s performance in our Childhood Review And Performance (CRAP) evaluation, it is clear he has failed (miserably we might add) and does not conform to our style of teaching, leaving us no choice but to assume he has ADHD.
As you know, the CRAP test is set up in such a way that if your child does not successfully catch a ball, recall a beef Wellington recipe word-for-word, or say that their favorite Star Trek character is Spock, it can only mean the presence of a learning disability.

The logical conclusion is that he’s interested in the history of pop culture, or that he’s hyperactive. We think the latter is more likely. Academics aside, we’ve noticed various other odd behaviors over the past few months. For example, while other kids were sitting in a circle at recess singing Baby Shark, he was in the corner humming I Got You Under My Skin. …

New hire, Ollie, doesn’t seem to understand that we aren’t going for excellence.

In what might be my most controversial article ever to date, I know I have ignited the rage of my fellow Trekkies through this article’s title, alone. So allow me to clarify before I dive in.
I’m not about to say this is a misunderstood gem of an episode or even that I think it’s one of the best episodes in the series. …
