Bush league.

FACTUAL STORY: A report I did for my tenth grade geo class on the history of Iraq's Sunni/Shiite conflict definitely contains an in-text reference to "the Muslim holy book, the Ibid."

It seemed so logical because the quotes were definitely from some! kind of religious text, and seeing Ibid which was clearly! not an English word, and no author cited... what else could it have been?

Pretty sure my teacher is still laughing at me.
