This has been making me laugh for months

So I thought I would share it with you. To the other grad students out there, how long do you reckon a non-expert could fool you for? I think theology is fairly far along to the right of the spectrum. As with all xkcd cartoons, remember to hover over the picture for the extra bit. (Edit – except it doesn’t seem to be working. Ah well, still funny without it)
If you think this is too hard on literary criticism, read the Wikipedia article on deconstruction

  1. Hehe – that’s great. Well, I have an MA in English lit, and I never quite worked out whether I really knew what I was talking about or if I’d simply worked out the rules for sounding like I did. I did do extra well in my essays on deconstruction, I seem to remember. A lot of it was simply being clever with wording, finding different ways of saying that nothing has any intrinsic meaning, and applying this to random novels.

  2. Funnily enough, that’s one that I saved too. Most of the time I don’t get xkcd strips as I’m not a techie, but every now and then there’s one that is just perfect.
