Out with the blackboard, in with the keyboard.

He went from a blackboard to BlackBoard, but he did such a bad job that they called him Special Ed.

Ed learned how to use WordPress, so he would not need to learn HTML. Thus he became a contented content writer.

Ed already knows that girls will hike up their skirts to try and get their markup. It seems he has a lot of the elements and attributes needed already.

He should look at the web side of life, lest he never be content!

He wants to be a content writer. How should he begin?
With regular meditation, and lots of writing practice, he'll be contentEd.

He tought that going from teaching to EDiting was easy... but found that now is Teach-Ed time

He needs to forget everything he thinks he knows about forms and lists; accept that comments in classes are a good thing; and remember you should always agree with the head.
