Pure light bulb moments

A man has revealed how, after he and a colleague were asked by the management at their school to provide 'talks' for other teachers, he gave a talk on 'improvisation', but was making the entire thing up as he went along.

Moys Kenwood and his teaching colleague - who, for identification purposes, we shall refer to as Teacher 'X' - were given the totally ambiguous task of 'speaking about any topic' they liked. They were informed:

"Speak about any topic you like."

Teacher 'X' quickly put together an inspirational talk about positive thinking, including in it a rather moving story about light bulb pioneer, Thomas Edison, and how his mother lied to the young inventor about a negative letter from school she'd had about him, to the effect that he was a bit of a dullard.

Kenwood, in contrast, put the matter out of his mind.

Only later, whilst watching 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' on YouTube, did his mind click into gear.

He would give a talk on 'improvisation'.

When the big moment arrived, Teacher 'X' delivered his talk, which was a resounding success, and drew much attention and enthusiasm.

Then the stage was set for Kenwood's 'improvisation' offering.

From the start, his voice was full of authority, his face flashed through a dozen convincing expressions, his hands and arms weaved explanatory patterns in the air, whilst he made everything up as he went along, essentially saying nothing.

The listeners were entranced, mesmerised, and hypnotized by his stunning ability to deliver absolute mumbo-jumbo in a resolute manner.

Finally, as he noticed some of the audiences eyes starting to glaze over, he suddenly brought the session to an end by enquiring:

"Are there any questions?"

There weren't.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
