That's BS!!!

When I was younger and taking English classes, our instructors would correct our homework and exams with red pens. The grades were something like:

  • Excellent.
  • Very Good Indeed.
  • Very Good.
  • Good.
  • Fair.
  • Poor.
  • Below Standard.
Now, at that time we didn't know anything about BS, and thus BS was just Below Standard for all of us. Just an abbreviation of the worst grade you could get, you know? Today though, I just think about the instructors writing BS on our lovely work... man, it's just too funny!
