Yes, that last bit is true: my 1:00 class has four Ashleys. I also have a student whose first name is "Erode". But really, I don't think anyone will ever top the student I had in summer school 2-3 years ago whose name was "Saddam Hussain". Sort of like no one's excuse will ever top the guy who said he didn't turn in his paper on time because he got called in at the last minute as a back-up dancer for the "Miss Gay [state name]" pageant and then his boyfriend broke up with him right after the pageant. Yes, I gave him an extension.
