There Will Be No Curve Or Mercy

Posted: September 16, 2011 by veeshir in Edumakashun, HAHAHAHAHAA!!!!, L.L.A.P.H., Win!

Pretty funny, someone hacked the website of Trinity College in Dublin to put in a new prof named Conan T. Barbarian.  (google cache link dead, updated 2/14, good link added with picture, apparently, Prof C.T. Barbarian was fired, now back to the post!)

Velly funny.

He completed his PhD, entitled “To Hear The Lamentation of Their Women: Constructions of Masculinity in Contemporary Zamoran Literature” at UCD and was appointed to the School of English in 2006, after sucessfully decapitating his predecessor during a bloody battle which will long be remembered in legend and song. In 2011/12, he will be teaching on the following courses: “The Relevance of Crom in the Modern World”, “Theories of Literature”, “Vengeance for Beginners”, “Deciphering the Riddle of Steel” and “D.H. Lawrence”. He strongly objects to the terms of the Croke Park agreement and the current trend for remaking 1980s films that he believes were perfectly good enough in the first place.

…”and DH Lawrence.”  That makes me laugh.RTWT, it’s a hoot.

Via Ninme, not sure what a Ninme is, but it used to be subtitled something about persistent catblogging but that’s apparently in the past.

C’mon, you didn’t expect me to be bi-partisany did you?

Pic changed, I didn’t realized Olivia D’Abo was 15 in the first movie, I’d always thought she was older.

    I LOVED that movie with complete and utter devotion to it in all it’s wacky glory. As much as I lust for enjoy Ronan Dex Jason Momoa’s various attributes, I haven’t been able to bring myself to watch the abomination that is the remake of the original.

    I wonder if Doctor Barbarian skewers students who aren’t punctual? It would be in character, and totally deserving.

    “Those guilty of academic misconduct or weakness in the face of the enemy will be crucified.”

    That’s the way my profs handled it. Glad to see the new ones aren’t all pussies.

  3. D.H. Lawrence had me snorting coffee through my nose.

    Oh, and for ATC:

    I guess that can be for you too, Veeshir😀

  4. Veeshir says:

    Nah, I don’t look good in a corset.

  5. DejahThoris says:

    It is rather surprising at the level of douchy-ness oozed by the models. Isn’t it a girdle when men wear it?

    P.S. LC Aggie Smith, I got all self-conscious about my avatar after you pointed it out.


      You have an AWESOME avatar!!!!

      *weeps inconsolably*

        🙂 It wasn’t actually me, but if I can come up with the moolah to get that tactical corset then I will make that my avatar. The Husband fully supports an investment in this particularly fashionable Endy-wear. Although I don’t actually have the spectacular rack that your avatar is sporting.

        This avatar is actually me camping up in the Yukon, during a gold prospecting expedition. The other one was my imaginary alter-ego, Mumaith Khan who is a seriously awesome item dancer in South Asian movies.
