What’s Red and Green and All Over?

From Political Irony, one of my favorite sites.

When I run into cartoons like this, I’m sorry I’m on break. Were I in the classroom, I’d love to pop this up on screen and tell some first year college comp students to write a brief definitional essay explaining which combinations are possible and which impossible. Computer use mandatory. No Wikipedia allowed. Dictionary/encyclopedia use encouraged. Citations required in full MLA format.

In some classes I’ve had, all the students might even have known what all four symbols represented.
