Parabola?

So I'm in the middle of calc, running on about 2 hours sleep, and the prof writes "parabola" on the the board. Now my mind skips a beat, enters in some craziness, and suddenly I think that a parabola is a variety of snake. As in "I was almost eaten by a parabola," or "I was in the rain forest and had to fight off a hoard of slithering parabolas," or "who would win in a fight; and anaconda or a parabola?" You tell me...

in my calc class it took about 40 minutes to realize that "teeeta" as in "the angle betweeeen 2 vectors is teeeeta" really means theta
