My last post was about The Dinks. I’d like to say that I conjured that up out of thin air, but that isn’t totally true. I do remember the first time I watched the episode – maybe a year ago – nodding my head empathetically with Prezbo. And then I sort of forgot about it…
Then about a month ago, Dan points us all to Ben Blum Smith’s post about Clever Hans, the counting horse. After reading this post, I immediately thought of The Dinks but my Google-Fu was weak and I couldn’t find the necessary clip of The Wire.
To bring this full circle, I was reminded of Clever Hans and hence Ben Blum Smith and hence my original attempt to find The Dinks when watching Dan’s presentation on “Be Less Helpful” at CMC North, which I highly recommend any of you math teachers watch.
And a blog post was born.
