Mayhem

Since changing a single letter in my last name produces a word meaning "violent or damaging disorder; chaos" or "the crime of maliciously injuring or maiming someone, originally so as to render the victim defenseless," I have to laugh when students write this word on their papers they are handing in to me.

Perhaps they secretly call your classes "Mayhew's Mayhem." :-)

They would call it that if they were sharp enough to know the word mayhem.
