I always knew Krugman was a professor, but this is getting ridiculous. According to the AP guys, The New York Times is going to be offering online classes for college credit.
The New York Times Knowledge Network and New Jersey’s Fairleigh Dickinson University are teaming up to offer online courses in subjects ranging from homeland security studies to global health care.
Of course, there are many jokes to be made here about what classes the NYTimes will offer.
Krugman 101: Always Being Right
Brooks 302: If you cite enough studies in one article, you won’t have to cite any in your next one
Wedding Announcements 201: Why didnt you go to Penn?
Style 203: Youth Trends… uh… shit, make up something
I can never get into that class, so I just get notes from HuffPost.
Anyways, I brought up the topic on Facebook, and Lily made an (un?)intentional reference to a Backpage I once did.
Well, in response to Ames calling me out (pdf: Evan classes Backpage):
These jokes are funnier if you went to Rice.
