Christmas caption competition

As promised, a Christmas caption competition.  The picture shows me with colleagues at a recent University Open Day.  Readers are invited to contribute a witty and appropriate (and in reasonably good taste) caption.

I tend to think the pictures are challenging, but readers regularly come up with wonderfully inventive and ingenious captions.  As usual, the one that in my judgment has produced the wittiest and most appropriate caption will be the winner.  The prize will be one of my publications.  It is possible that runners-up may receive prints of my portrait.  Well, it is Christmas.

    Demented Professor produces disturbed pupils. Not to worry, when confident they collectively offer apologies, ‘ Oh, s’il vous plait, je regret, je suis désolée’
