Background: Roommate had a student who went on a two week caribbean cruise. So, she was given homework to do.
Student: "What does the oil spill in Mexico and my homework have in common?"
Vanessa: "They're both really messy and not finished?"
Student: "NO! They're both in the Gulf of Mexico!"
Apparently, while sunbathing (and doing her homework - the student wants points for that) she got up to get some ice cream. She did not put something heavy to hold down her papers. The fish are now smarter because they're learning physics.
