L'HoppyTail leads a life of leisure, and teaches no classes. He does

L'HoppyTail joined the department in 1998, after the department's spelling
team, "The Oblique Asymptotes," won the John Carroll University Spelling Bee.

to become the champions at the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Community
