Is Highly Frowned Upon, especially by the professor, and especially when nothing remotely funny has been said. In fact, it's the Number One Dead Giveaway that the sniggering student is not in fact listening with fascination to the discussion about War Powers but rather surreptitiously reading something from the internet. For instance, a little guffaw was had in ConLaw this morning via Lileks and his Backfence column:
"Dogs and cats
How would the world be different if people had the attributes of dogs or cats? Meetings would take twice as long, of course -- if someone went past the meeting room, everyone would throw themselves against the window and shout HEY! HEY! SAY THERE! HEY! until the person passed, then take their seats as if nothing had happened."
