Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I have a little bachelor's
That keeps me unemployed,
But I know Dunne from Milton
A source of joy and pride!

I can tell iamb from anapest
And a sonnet from an ode,
An epic from a tragedy --
I quote Shakespeare by the load.

Yes, Greek tragedy can make me smile,
And Pope and Chaucer too,
But the "wherewithal" to pay for that --
Well, I use a public loo.

But I recognize great literature
Like Bill Reilly and Glenn Beck!
But still I ask, "Do you want fries?"
For a marketable skill I lack.

There are jobs, even jobs for me,
Well paying jobs, I'm sure,
But somehow I doubt I'll reach them
With a GPA of 1.4.
