comment and/or question
@cjtabares The construction you're giving in your comment is different than the one in your question - I would suggest, if you want a clear answer, to use the text you are confused about as an example, rather than inventing a context of your own. You will get a much better answer that way.

@Wes The philosophy that 'true teachers teach as their only source of income'. Mark is making the snide comment that John, giving free chess lessons, can't be a very good teacher if he doesn't charge for his lessons. It's a joke. Mark is making fun of John.

@Wes You may be talking about teachers in general, but Mark is bringing up a point - that John isn't subscribing to this philosophy himself. That, or he's calling himself "not a true teacher".

I will always upvote an answer that makes proper use of the word "Boondoggle".

I'd like to point out that Mark's comment DOES add to the flow of the conversation - his sole source of income is not his lessons (because they are free), therefore Mark is pointing out the flaw in John's argument.

@FumbleFingers That sounds like a pretty good answer in itself. Especially if you can back any other previous references to it in literature.

Fact is, I caught the typo in the two other places I used the word in my question before posting it, but not that last one. Fixed. Obviously I'm not implying an insect-origin for the Xenomorphs.
