Fun With New Words

My students eagerly introduced me to a new word the other morning on my way to class. "Gilboa!" they say. What's that? I ingenuously ask. And they show me exactly what a gilboa is.

Apparently the students were cleaning out a bamboo stand at the school when they found him. One of the professors promptly took matters - and a shovel - into his own hands and everything was back to normal after a few minutes.

After plenty of photos, Gil the Boa was cooked up for dinner. The bamboo stand is safe once again.
