A Tom Swifty?

"Yours is a biting remark!" she snapped at him for sharply lowering her grade.

Perhaps even a double Tom Swifty?

Is there an autobiographical component to this story, perhaps? (Believe me, when it comes to student complaints/begging about grades, I've been there.)

Nah, I just made it up . . . though I can't vouch for where it came from. I suspect I have some sort of genetic mutation that creates this kind of 'static' in my brain. I might be taking an IQ test, and I get distracted by some unintended rhyme or alliteration or other linguistic whatnot and lose valuable time musing about that.
