I saw several of the good Sister's tapes (while I was taking college
classes) and never heard anything like this, although it doesn't
surprise me a bit. The thing that DID bother the majority of my
classmates was her speach problem. Although these were adult classes,
it was hard to go through one of her tapes without giggling at some
point. I know it sounds childish, but no one meant to take it lightly
or poke fun.

Although her tapes were educational and, for the most part, very
interesting, it was a distraction. I've thought about getting some of
her tapes for my junior and senior high school art students, but I'm
afraid they'd never get the point of the film because of their
immaturity and urge to laugh.

Did you notice it?
