If they change it to Yaoo University, I hope they'll then establish the Neil Hamburger College of Pizza Studies:

My sister (who went to Stanford) was accepted at every single college she applied to, except Harvard.

She framed the rejection letter and put it on the wall.  It's still hanging in my mother's house twenty five years later.  :-P

Oh no! They'll have to change the name of the "Yale Rule". From Urban Dictionary:

The Yale Rule states that within five minutes of meeting someone who attended Yale, you will be informed of that fact. This is rather humorous, particularly given that Yale isn't that great a school.

"Greetings, my name is Throckmorton Q. Covington; pleased to meet you. I say, it's a fine day. It reminds me of when I was a young lad attending Yale...."

Ha! The Yale Rule's been proven once again!

Heh.  That reminds me of a real anecdote from long ago when I at a dinner with some friends of my BIL.  Don't know why but a woman in the bunch immediately got on my nerves talking to me about herself and her law studies.

She wasn't taking my negative hints until she proudly stated she "graduated from Sloan with such-and-such honors".  I replied, "Sloan?  Don't they make flush valves for urinals?"

I guess it was business Sloan, not law

Alien Robot: chitownmike: Trocadero: Geotpf: Maybe we should just rename things named after the traitor slaveholders but keep the names for stuff named after "patriot" slaveholders.  Or you better tell me what we are going to change Washington State and Washington DC to.

What's wrong w/ the original Native words?

Nobody can pronounce them

No one can pronounce "Potomac"?


Few can. The pronunciation was supposedly closer to "Patawomack."

/ according to someone I know from that tribe, anyway

p51d007: So what you are saying, is that ANYONE, I mean ANYONE that had a connection with slavery,
supported slavery, or even mentioned slavery, must have their names stripped from every piece
of property, building, road and what not?
Ok, can we start with THIS guy?
