I kid you not

From the alumni magazine of a college I attended (and taught at), one professor is doing a dissertation on:

"an ecocritical reading of slave narratives and ante-bellum black autobiography."

Knowing when to get out of academia is a life skill.

Joe, your alma mater still has some intellectual credibility. Last night, on the national CBS news, a science professor from this institution was shown demonstrating the depths to which temperatures had plummeted by hammering a nail into a board with a banana. Mr. Wizard!
