What’s more annoying than celebrities getting honorary degrees from real universities despite not actually doing anything? Celebrities getting honorary degrees from fake universities for not doing anything! But for some reason, Lady Gaga will be getting a degree from MTVU (yes, it does stand for MTV University) for doing … something. I think. Also, Daniel Tosh from Tosh.0 is getting one too. I suddenly feel way better about dropping out of CEGEP.
According to MTV, Gaga “has spearheaded a musical revolution and continues to send an inspirational message to college student everywhere.” She will be honored in programming that airs Thursday at 3 p.m. ET/PT. Gaga will receive her “degree” after Comedy Central viral video guru Daniel Tosh and Ted Olson, a conservative lawyer fighting against California’s ban on same-sex marriage. MTV’s college network has been awarding “honorary degrees” to influential individuals who resonate with college students since 2005. SOURCE
Wait, so you’re telling me that all I need to do to get a college degree is to be gay, share viral videos with people and make fun of stupid people? Jesus, what do you think I’ve been doing for the past two years? Where the hell is my degree? Ugh, this system is a total farce. A farce wrapped in a fart. Well whatever, I don’t need your stupid degree, I already have my English degree! (For the sake of clarification, my “English Degree” is actually a cocktail napkin with the words “English Degree” sharpied on it.)
