    Hmm…interesting…
    I think I’d like to go for option A.
    “My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nothing”

    Self mockery is kind of fun sometimes, but then again I feel that the sentence A’s phrasing is easy on the ears. (Or maybe I got used to hearing the same sentence all through my high-school). Or maybe I like the fact that my mother is actually ‘very educated’ (She’s a doctor). LOL

    Anyway, neat work. Keep Bloggin’.

    I will vote for C. as well. It seems to be the most fluent, and I like that the mnemonic describes itself.

    They are all good though!

    And I miss pluto. Aw.

  4. I vote for C. Self-mockery is the way to go.

    Since I’m jealous of the kids on my hall who get to sleep in, I’ll vote B.
