Cage-inspired plagarism

So I was finishing up my Candide paper for history and was to the point where I was deciding on a title. After thinking about my main points and the nature of Voltaire's satire, I really wanted to plagiarize Cage's work and call it How to Improve the World: you will only make matters worse. I didn't think my professor would be willing to understand my perfectly legitimate plagiarism, though, so I came up with something else... it wasn't as good.

Hey just wanted to pass along a fun fact that all the people in honors class (myself, JJ, Jenna, Angelle, Daniel, and Penny) have created a fun Cage style game. Before every class we pull a book off a library shelve at random, open it to a random page, and then point to a random word on the page without looking and thats the word of the day. The first person to use that word when answering a question in the class wins the point for the day. Its pretty entertaining and Cagian.

I guess some of us really are doomed to continue the game forever and always think about Cage, but hey it keeps life interesting.
