Some subscribers to Math-Learn might be interested in "Satirical
Essays By Diana Senechal and Arnold Arons." The abstract reads:

ABSTRACT: I provide excerpts for the following satirical essays by
Diana Senechal and Arnold Arons:

(a) "Research Breakthrough! Silver Bullet Found" [Senechal (2012)],
online at <http://bit.ly/Q1vRee>;

(b) "Educational Practices - an Expert View of Current Trends" [Arons
(1973)], online to subscribers of "The Physics Teacher" at

(c) "An expert visit to the cognitive domain" [Arons (1984)], online
to subscribers of "The Physics Teacher" at <http://bit.ly/LdVDtY>.

Arons was influenced by Frank Sullivan's <http://bit.ly/SV48uk> "Mr.
Arbuthnot," the cliche expert, who futilely battled the banal in
popular writing. Fortunately, Arbuthnot lives on in essays by Ben
Yagoda (2001?) <http://bit.ly/UvHSxV> "24/7 With the Cliche Expert"
at <http://bit.ly/TaI9ET> and Frank Prial (2006)
<http://bit.ly/R7OPPz> "Wine talk: Rolling out those chewy behemoths"
at <http://nyti.ms/Q1IyWt>.

And also - you know - having said that, in real time and for texters
and googlers, the bottom line is that the imperial concerns of the
real-time marketplace demand use of awesome, amazing, and
game-changing cliches not only prior to, but at the end of the day,
around the clock, and 24/7.
