A Bro You Should Know - Mr. Linfante


You may be asking yourself, who is this mystery bro Mr. Linfante? Plainly, he’s everything you should aspire to be. If being a Boston College graduate isn’t enough to convince you, how about the fact that he’s still a doggy packing machine. Bro’s come in all shapes, sizes and forms. Mr. Linfante is a unique breed. This hero is fluent three different languages: English, Latin, and Cuello. English is a far too complex language,plus it sucks to teach, especially when you have to abandon all the slang that you grew up with (chafe: not being able to use slang). The job market for Cuello is pretty tough right now especially in this economy. Being the bro that he is, Mr. Linfante decided to go with Latin, the tongue that he currently teaches at Delbarton School in New Jersey (shoutout to Delbarton lax bros, you guys are fresh). This is a genius move, seeing as Latin is a dead language. Chew on this for a second: If all of the Latin teachers of the world banded together, they could together cease the existence of the language and kill it off once and for all (imagine having the power to murder a language). The only reason they elect not to is because then they wouldn’t be able to chill all day sitting at a teacher’s desk, surfing the web showing fresh websites to their pupils (mostly Broston College) and translating words that no one will ever actually use in real life (maybe it will come in handy for one problem on the SAT). My gut instinct tells me that Mr. Linfante can translate this whole post to Latin in under 3 minutes, but chooses not to because he doesn’t want to be a show off (yes, he’s humble as well). He’s the cool teacher that everyone hopes to get in high school, and a bro who doesn’t show any signs of slowing down in the near future. Here’s to you Mr. Linfante. Keep teaching our Delbarton bros-in-training Latin, so they can put it on their college application and come join the Broston College network.
