Chocolate Grammarchips (#12)

    A lesson in how not to get into the university of your dreams.

hay (noun): Grass that has been cut and dried for cows to chew slowly and thoughtfully. 

Hey! (exclamation): This expression is used to attract attention whether or not someone wants to be interrupted. It is the most informal greeting for getting someone’s attention—in much the same way one cow might suddenly kick another cow.
