Surf the web and talk on the phone at the same time! says the announcer on the Comcast commercial. Does this seem rude to anybody else?

Uttered in an introductory programming class:

How do you eat an elephant? Anybody? You cannot eat an elephant all at once. Not even a tiny baby elephant. You must divide and conquer!

Seems like it could go for any number of disciplines. How much gnashing of teeth actually comes from some poor soul trying to gnaw through the skin of an elephant? Even a tiny baby elephant?

Some days I think I should have chosen a different career path. Like being a zookeeper.
