I think I prefer "voodoo economics" to this...

This has nothing to do with teaching but I just had to share Jon's Stewart's response to Ben Stein's idiotic defense of Strauss-Kahn (starts at about 3:02):

Thanks to Stein, we get Stewart listing off several sex-offending economists and what has to be the best worst quote about the profession ever: "Economists are the rapiest profession going... Turns out the invisible hand of the market is very f***ing touchy-feely!" Not sure if I'm laughing or crying...
