A superlative time

I was in my office this past Tuesday, advising students about courses for next semester, when outside my office door a guy showed up to put up a poster. Naturally, curiosity got the better of me so I asked him what was up. It turned out I had been voted

Most Favorite Professor, Fall 2002

Wow! I am definitely not worthy, but I want to thank anybody who voted for me: chocolate awaits you in my office. And if you didn't vote for me, you can still have chocolate -- I didn't get the above title by being stingy with chocolate.

It sounds kind of redundant, doesn't it, "Most Favorite" Professor? After all, if I'm your favorite, then how could you have anybody more favorite than that? But, on the other hand, there is the notion of "Least Favorite" so I suppose for balance in the cosmos, we need "Most Favorite".

From what I heard, I'm one of five "Most Favorite" Professors, which adds even more spice to the superlative stew. Last year, 3 of the 5 most favs were CS professors, but I think this year they spread it around a bit more among the other departments.

Thank you Tau Beta Pi for your Engineering Appreciation week. Thanks for the bagels, thanks for the recognition. It gave me a much-needed boost this week.


And thank *you* for being our "most favoritest" professor :-)
