Overheard: fabulous graph

Astronomy 210L, fall semester 2011
Cuesta College, San Luis Obispo, CA

(Overheard while students set up their research posters for the last astronomy lab meeting.)

Instructor: "Are these data points on your graph...sequins?"

Student: "No, they're just drawn in with purple ink."

Instructor: "That's too bad." (Beat.) "Because if they were sequins, your graph would be...fabulous!"
