Grad Student Humour

At Danielle’s birthday dinner last night, Sheila mentioned a Simpsons clip that a friend of hers had sent her from You Tube:

All I have to say is, “I’m 30 and I WISH I made $600!!”

In my search for that clip, I came across this other clip about grad students:

It’s funny because it’s true. I find it amusing that the professor in the clip has elbow patches on his tweed jacket. Why do they always portray profs as wearing tweed jackets with elbow patches on them in TV shows and movies? Eleven years of postsecondary education and I never met a prof with a tweed jacket, let alone elbow patches.

And then, as YouTube sucked me in, I also found this clip, which I have always found hilarious:

I’ve been known to use the quotation “there may be a boogyman, or boogymen, in the house!”

OK, I’ll stop now.

  • Gee… how many people who dropped out of a Ph.D. program write for the Simpsons, huh? *grin*

  • Sweet merciful crap!

    I love the Boogeyman episode.

    Partially because Homer’s eyes open up so wide, and his pupils dilate LIKE MAD!

    It’s the little things that make me laugh.
