Lightsaber-wielding UOttawa prof mixes comedy w/ course on Roman civilization

No, it's not science, but it sounds like a helluva lotta fun. No reason that science classes can't be this much fun.

As you may have surmised, Burgess is not your typical classics professor. He dons a toga for the class about Roman clothing, peppers his lectures with pop culture references, keeps students laughing with a barrage of jokes and ends the course with a skit from Monty Python’s Life of Brian.
