another calculus gem

Just to prove once again that I have the same sense of humour as an 8 year old boy, here's last week's gem from calculus:
Taken from Wikipedia
After explaining horizontal and vertical asymptotes (here, the asymptotes are the x and y axes) and how there can be many vertical but a maximum of 2 horizontal, the teacher turns to us and says: "So...any questions about my asymptotes?"

I managed NOT to giggle uncontrollably, but the 8 year old boy in my head was rolling on the floor...
