Just kidding

Last night, I was working my way through some back issues of the New Yorker, which collect in a giant pile on my bedside table until my wife finally relocates them to the recycling bin, and came across a funny Shouts and Murmurs item called "My Undoing." If you're a conference/symposium/colloquium junkie like me, you'll be amused. If not, you may be mystified. I link it for your consideration. And while I'm at it, I'll link one of my own efforts at academic satire which ran a good number of years ago in the Journal of Legal Education, entitled "A Tribute to Webster Boudreaux."

Stuart, your piece is *very* funny. And brave too, given that you wrote it in your raw years...

Hysterical! Both the New Yorker piece and your satire. Nice work - I only wish that my first satire had been as good. ;)

The author of that piece (which I didn't think was that funny) is the great George Meyer, writer of some of the best Simpson's episodes ever and a crucial contributor to episodes that he didn't write. See here: http://www.snpp.com/other/interviews/meyer00.html for more info.
