Space geeks (like me) who pour over the daily "execute packages" have 
noticed that mission control has been teasing poor Bill mercilessly by 
mangling his name in the timeline.  He has been referred to as Ovaltine, 
Oxyclean, and today "Oberpfaffenhofen"

The students should have asked him what he did to deserve such teasing!
