I HAVE read this!  I knew it sounded familiar, but assumed I'd just heard it
referred to.  Unfortunately I can't remember where.  It was in a more
general anthology, but it could have been a high school textbook or a
science fiction collection or anything.  I wish I'd read it after _Madame
Bovary_ because it would have been funnier....

textbook during class, thus reducing the risk of getting caught at not
paying attention to the boring lecture?)

If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
