Best Recent Line from an Academic Paper

I love it when a random amusing line is slipped into an academic paper. This one comes from "Rethinking School Reform: The Distractions of Dogma and the Potential for a New Politics of Progressive Pragmatism," by Jefferey R. Henig and Clarence N. Stone and was published in the latest issue of the American Journal of Education:

"The Teachers at most schools present more personalities and skill sets than a Baskin-Robbins does flavors."

Don't the authors get props for alliteration, too? "Potential for a New Politics of Progressive Pragmatism" is not a title I'd want to hear Porky Pig pronounce.
