I almost spoiled the joke in the title

I met for the last time yesterday with my methodology class. It was a good group of students. In lieu of a final exam, we talked about "what we've learned this semester." As part of the discussion, I read out loud the long list of course objectives. After the one about "students will learn to use Chicago style (Turabian) footnotes," one student said she had a great idea for a t-shirt slogan: "Historians do it Chicago style." Man, I'm going to miss them.
