I recall, years ago, that one of the top names in the Haskell world, gave someone Homework "help".   Someone asked for help on a fairly simple problem and the Professor gave a solution involving Monads that mirrored a more typical procedural language solution. 

He was clearly signalling to the grader that the student had gotten some "help".

I should have saved it.  It was one of the funnier things one might find in a comp.lang group in my memory.

Does anyone recall this and can point me to the post?
