The Stupid Is Omnipotent In Academia.

Recommended Posts

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/oct/15/cornell-english-department-votes-to-change-name-to/

 

 

The English department at Cornell University has voted to change its name in an effort to distinguish English the language from English the nationality.

The department at the Ivy League university in New York voted to change its name to “the department of literatures in English” during its first faculty meeting of the fall semester earlier this month, the student-led Cornell Daily Sun reported Wednesday.

The difference between English Departments and French,  German, Spanish, Swahili, and all the other language departments is that the English Departments do not teach English, they teach English literature.

I'm no English teacher but, I believe you mean Omnipresent, not Omnipotent.

Omnipresent = present everywhere. 
Omnipotent = all powerful. 
Omniscient = all knowing.

What do you call a PhD? In this example the answer is: "A person who has been educated beyond their level of intelligence."

Did someone say bacon?

That's not regular sized bread wrapped around a pound of greasy goodness. Enjoy

Exactly.  The Stupid is somewhat like The Force, but much stronger.  Especially on campus.

Didn't have my glasses on when I first read the title, and mis-read it as "The Stupid Is Omnipotent In California."

 

Everyone knows that!  Hell, I almost didn't open it.  :)

The name change makes sense. They don’t teach English they teach English literature. If they have a class teaching English it is a remedial class, English as a second language and they have a graduate student do it

 If one wanted to take a class on being English what might that class be called? ;)
