boar's head

“The legend which accompanies the boar’s head
 emblem of Queen’s is that a scholar of the college
 was attacked by a wild boar . . . he worsted the beast
 by thrusting his copy of Aristotle down its throat.’

A pearl to inwardly digest
For all those in the teaching line?
On some occasions it is best
To ram your wisdom down the swine.
