Laverne and Shirley

In class one morning, I was quickly counting out the number of digits of a decimal expansion that was on the board: “One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.” Struck by sudden inspiration, I continued, “Sclemeel, schlemazel, hasenfeffer incorporated.”

Sadly, only one student (unsurprisingly, a non-traditional student) laughed. It took me a minute to realize that not only are my college students too young to remember “Laverne and Shirley,” they’re also too young to remember when Wayne and Garth paid homage to “Laverne and Shirley” in their 1992 movie.
