Last week, someone commented that Chrisses on t.o were as common as
Australian philosophers named Bruce. We counted, and found no fewer
than 6 *real* Chrisses (and countless wannabees). We were inspired
(or was it too much turkey and pumpkin pie from the Canadian Thanks-
giving celebration this past weekend?) to produce the following:

Profs. Bales, Lecointe, Harter (!?) and T(i)un under the "Equal Time in
Education" provisions of local Affirmative Action statutes.)
The University does, of course, grant degrees up to the doctoral level,
by mail-order. If you send $100 to the Registrar (email only; no cash,
cheques or credit cards accepted), you will receive a handsome diploma
suitable for framing and hanging on the wall (perhaps in the smallest
room of your house), just as soon as we can figure out what colour(s)
it should be.
We are evilutionists;
Our emblem is the fossil.
We like to get in arguments,
And rant as much as possible.
Punk! Eek! Punk! Eek! Punk! Eek!

or having their research project overlooked, enlighten us by email--we
