I always thought that damn cat was too smart for his own good….
I’ve known many cats in my lifetime, and they have all had many admirable (and more than a few not so admirable) qualities. None of them, however, would I EVER have come close to describing as academically inclined. Maybe it’s me, but I have a difficult time envisioning a cat parsing Keynesian economic theory as it licks it’s butt.
Meet Colby, quite possibly the world’s first and only cat with an MBA. In the cat world, that a can of sardines still won’t make you Big Man on Campus….
FRISCO - Prompted by questions from employers and complaints to Microsoft Corp., authorities spent a year investigating an alleged Internet diploma mill before Pennsylvania officials sued to stop the operation this week.
Texas officials, who had been unable to identify the operators of the school and suspended their own investigation months ago, said the attorney general will consider charges next week.
Pennsylvania authorities say they paid $398 to get an MBA for a cat named Colby. With Colby’s diploma in hand, they sued Craig Barton Poe, 35, of Frisco, and Alton Scott Poe, 40, of St. Cloud, Fla., alleging consumer fraud and illegal spamming.
The lawsuit in Pennsylvania charges that the Poes used bulk e-mail to sell phony degrees from something called Trinity Southern University, based in Dallas.
There was no answer Thursday at Craig Poe’s new, 4,284-square-foot home near Dallas. The local assessor valued it at $380,000.
Apparently, educating cats is quite a lucrative proposition. Who knew?? I’m not sure that Einar and Boo would be great candidates for the challenging world of higher education, though. Einar is scared of his own shadow, and Boo has the attention span of, well, a kitten.
Of course, no self-respecting dog would ever subject themselves to this travesty…unless there was food involved.
