Those damned PhDs

What's Mallard raving about today?

Folks with Ph.D.s in Education, arcane facts, McDonald's.

Well, if these folks got their degree in Education rather than "Education" maybe they'd be more qualified.

Almost as qualified as someone who doesn't know how to use the term "mull" correctly in a sentence. Unless Mallard intentionally did not say "mull over" because he actually meant to say that they were heating and adding sugar and spices to arcane facts.

But if he'd said "mull over," it would have broken the delicate meter of his poetry!

Those damned poets.

Hey! Tinsley is a progressive! He's bemoaning the fact that there are few opportunities for educators, and that our f*cked-up society can only find room for them as burger-flippers!

Go Bruce! Fight the Power!

Anon, I think he means that education is worthless, because it prepares you for nothing but burger-flipping.

It's not society that's fucked up, it's education.

Kids should only go to school to learn trades, prepare for the business world, not discover new facts and new ways of thinking in an educational way.

Bah.

Meter? What meter? Maybe Tinsley is anti-metric system and that's why the poetic flow is so crappy. (His poetry gets 40 rods to a hogshead and that's the way he likes it!)

And why is Big Mac in quotes?
