Use the force, Ronnie

A GW Professor, during a Lecture on Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative and the political cartoons it inspired:

[Pulls up a slide with a cartoon of Reagan and Yoda]

Professor: "And here you see a cartoon with Reagan and his newest military advisor, someone clearly accustomed to fighting an Evil Empireā€¦ [Impersonating Yoda] fight the Soviet Union, we must!"

Class: *laughs*

[Pulls up the next slide with a cartoon of Reagan standing amongst C3PO, R2D2, and E.T.]

Professor: "Here, yet another political cartoon poking fun at Reagan's Star Wars plan. Only, this time the cartoonist has made a mistake, for E.T. was obviously not a Star Wars character. He should have included my favorite character, Chewbacca, instead."


Professor: "Oh, no, I'm far too intellectual for that."

Not that this isn't amusing, but isnt it sort of contrary to the notion of eavesdropping - hearing something by chance, usually out of other words, not a lecture you attend twice a week.

When did you eavesdrop on that one? 1983?
