Generation gap.

My favorite exchange this week occurred during Hall Duty after I saw a student walking toward me with enormous black jeans and a FACE on his lower legs. (One half of the face was on one calf of the jeans, and the other half of the face was on the other calf.) Since the boy was walking and not standing still, I didn't recognize the celebrity until the young man was nearly next to me.

Me: "Cool jeans! Is that Redd Foxx?"

Student: "No, miss. It's Fred Sanford."
