And we’ll throw in a free doctorate, too!

BRITAIN/

Lonnie, it’s me, the university president. Can you hear me?

Yeah Boss, I’m at the art gallery. A bunch of our students are here demonstrating against the tuition increase.

arm pit vertical 240Big deal, Lonnie. They’re being peaceful, right?

Uh, yeah, but one of the women just took off her clothes, right down to her black bra and panties.

Really? Sounds kind of sexy, Lon.

Sure, maybe if you’ve been in prison for 20 years. It’s Hulga. Now she’s waving her arms in the air.

Oh, her. Well, they can do whatever they want, we’re not changing our  minds about the tuition, because… Wait! Isn’t Hulga the one that doesn’t shave under her…

She’s the one, Boss.

Lonnie, offer her a full scholarship if she’ll put her clothes back on.

Do it now, before any photographers get there!

Oh, that Hulga! From pointy hair to pointy hats, whatever the point is…

Points for shaving her face?

The pointy hat fits perfectly on her pointy little head! Does she really think that taking off her clothes will cause parliament to lower tuition again?
Besides, the Turner Prize is for interesting NEW developments in performing arts. People have been stripping off in public for years!

I once had a hat THIS tall! No, really, see?!

I see that the security guard is having no difficulty at all avoiding leering at her…
