University Degree--No Larnin' Needed

Legitimate universities—including those from whom you can earn a real degree—always put their best feet forward to attract students. Fancy catalogs, professionally-done web sites—whatever it takes to exude professionalism, class, and taste.

In contrast comes the Subject: line of one of those "dial-a-degree" spam messages, which promise that one's work experience (oops, they forgot to mention the money) is good enough to obtain a degree, including a Doctorate. Professionalism, class, and taste? You decide:

Subject: FW: Is your skills about to expired?

Is you is, or is you ain't college material?
