And lo, did the talking salamander say unto me the words of the enlightened Great Platypus. When faced by boredom one must rid thy mind of all sinful pleasures, instead focusing on the lessons learned from tuberculated iron pipe. Just as dissolved oxygen concentrations and aggressive anions are responsible for tuberculation in the piping, so to are meaningless occupations anathema to proper study habits. The test you are facing now is given unto thee by the Great Alpaca and her daughter the Wombat for your spiritual and mental edification. You may question why you must study and succeed on your tests and papers. Why fret these things? The Great Platypus does not question why it must lay eggs, why it has the mouth of a bird, nor why it is a venomous mammal (supposing that it is actually a mammal and not a furry avian). So should you turn from these pastimes that distract your mind, for even one such as you...if you can put your mind to it and ignore the distractions of the tricksy Emu that inhabits the internet...lay eggs as the Great Platypus has instructed all his followers.
And then the dream left me and the Salamander was no more. All that was left were the moanings and tortured cries of Hyperdox Herman, bewailing the loss of his beloved Helpmeet Helen to the wiles of the perfidious Papist.
