Professor Dressed Unorthodoxly, Students Observe

Many students were dumbfounded today when Professor Bruce Thompson arrived to History of Modern Israel for the first time ever without his usual dress shirt. Confused whispers were heard throughout the hall.

"He's just wearing a t-shirt!" gawked fourth-year student Josh Feldstein. "He has a Ph.D. from Stanford, for crying out loud! He's betraying his own kind!"

Professor Thompson mumbled a vague apology about the heat and then segued into his lecture. But like many other students, Shirah Goldfarbowitz just couldn't concentrate: "It was disturbing. Like, he can't just do that to us. I think he knows that this is a fine university, we have standards here." In reaction to this passionate disapproval, another female student was heard saying, "Calm down."

One student who arrived late to class at first thought he had entered the wrong room, but realized it was just that Professor Thompson was wearing a t-shirt.

When questioned about the change in style after class, Professor Thompson somehow ended up talking about how British accents can make anything sound more authentic, effectively evading the subject.

Please note: This story is fake news. While the incident did actually occur, no one cared and all the quotes are made up.

I was also subjected to Professor Thompson's casual dress. I enjoyed the change of environment. It was as though the room changed from a history class to a summer camp. Bruce should definately dress down more often, maybe a pair of flip flops would be a good idea.
