I really want to use this in a class

I'd love to use this in a class to teach about dummy subjects.
Sadly, as Geekman pointed out, that would probably require me to first explain how venn diagrams work, and then the origin of the quote. By which point it probably wouldn't be half as funny.

Sigh.

Oh, that is so hilarious! :-D
Surely everybody knows what Venn diagrams are??

@Grace: You'd be surprised.

@Styley: I read the overlap as "pi", and was trying to remember if there was pie in A Tale of Two Cities.

I love it! but I agree, the fun would be lost when you had to explain it :(

Oh, now I want to be a Victorianist for just the tiniest moment! I can't wait to show this to my friend who is, tomorrow!

Go for it. We all need a little professor humor even if students don't get it. Now that I think about it, I probably don't get their humor either!
