Well there is that.  But of course, a bit of ancient history might clear things up a bit.

In the year -4004, Eve appeared, and the first thing that Adam said was: Pardon me, miss, you perhaps should stand back.  I don't know how big this thing is going to get.

That's how it started.  You know the old old pattern: he chases her until she catches him.  It has always been that way.

So... they are standing around, wondering what to do next, the usual awkwardness, only worse because clothing hadn't been invented yet so it wasn't a bit difficult to see what Adam had in mind, so finally he just says: Will you hallelujah?  

Of course she has to at least appear to make the chase a bit of a challenge:  Heh!  With that?  Kumbaya!

He persists, since she is the only actual human available.  So he uses the old word for pleeeeease: Aw, common, hallelujah aaameennnn?

She: You don't even have a navel!

He:  Oh my god!  You're right.  Well, do you?

She:  Hmmmm, can't really say.  I'm not sure where it would go if I had one.

He:  There you go, we have that in common.

She:  So we do.  Well then, I suppose I will haljahlule.

Then they went right to it, and that place is considered the first college.  So you see, things haven't changed all that much.
