A non-professor friend posted this on my Facebook wall, probably because I was complaining about not having a chili pepper, which is a travesty as far as I'm concerned.

But, in any case: which of those little icons do you deserve? Or aspire to? Or what's your sartorial aesthetic in the classroom?

You can also brag if you have a chili pepper.

(For the non-USAns who may not have encountered the site referenced: Rate My Professors. It's an awful, awful, terrible, addictive thing.)

This is hilarious. I do have a chili pepper, but I can claim no credit for it. One night a bunch of us were sitting around at a party bemoaning our lack of chili peppers, and the next day, several of us had one. One of the people at the party was a recently-graduated alum who apparently still had his school email account. I think he just took pity on us poor frumps.

It's a fascinating site. Two things come to mind: a) how often the lower ratings get it right (we don't have many profs with overall frown-face ratings, but the ones who do have them are always the ones that most of us know deserve them) and b) how impossible it apparently is ever to update the thing. There are profs listed on our school's site who have been gone for a decade.

I avoid looking at all sites like this because it's not good for my psyche, but I'll answer the question if you tell me what the list of icons is. :)
