    I've been to Eton.

    Well, I saw it from one of the turrets at Windsor Castle.
    I still poop rainbows.

    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.

    Yes, dear. That's where we all got our doctorate degrees from Harvard!

    Yes, but it anagrams into "I am Lord Voldemort."

    OK, I may be exaggerating there.

    Harvard... Puh-leeze.

    MIT was MIT when Harvard was a pup.
    MIT we still will be when Harvard's time is up.

    This reminds me... My city has two Universities. One is an old, traditional Uni and the other used to be a Polytecnic (which was a sort of adult education college teaching vocational courses and cake decorating) At some point before I was born there was a drive in the UK to turn Polys into Unis. But Polys retain their status as being "not proper Universities" and are still considered low-brow.

    So when we had varsity matches between our Uni (the old one) and the other Uni (the ex-poly) we had a song to sing (to the tune of Campdown Races):
    "We go somewhere you don't go, Uni, Uni,
    We go somewhere you don't go, University"

    Aaaaaaah fun times

    I once went punting in Cambridge and saw most of the Colleges. That's got to be worth a Masters, at least...

    Heck, you get a "free" masters at Cambridge 5 years after your BA, as long as you haven't brought the college into disrepute (e.g. gone to prison). Srsly.

    A tour of the Backs definitely counts!

    Not really. Imagine a cross between PublishAmerica and a Nigerian scam email, and that's ParaDon.

    Most of the good is in the first three pages, though there's a hilarious guest appearance on page seven.

    I went to Notre Dame.

    Several times.

    For math contests when I was in junior high.

    Therefore, I WIN.

    How many years has this daily driving been going on? Depending on the timescale you could be a Professor by now.

    She's a professor of Hugh Jackman of course. That means he's legally obligated to show up at her house so she can engage in some in-depth research, right?

    I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks, with a doctorate in thuggology (Ph.T.). Therefore I am a professional thuggist. Our conventions are fun.
