Get E-Educated!

MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course) represent a shift in the higher education paradigm. They are cheap (sometimes even free), widely available, open to anyone with an internet connection, and offer limitless educational opportunities. Coupled with established sources of community driven information such as Wikipedia, Wikibooks, and Stack Exchange, there is nothing preventing a motivated individual from obtaining a college level education completely online.

And yet, traditional colleges and universities have not experienced lower application rates and are even able to increase tuition. This implies that there is something that traditional institutions of higher learning are able to offer something that their free competitors can not.

Which is where FunnyRobes-Inc. comes in! We are preparing a suite of traditional education tropes for sale to students who choose to achieve higher education online, but don't want to miss out on the "real" college experience. Take, for example, our GradePumpA+++ which will inflate any grade and is powered entirely by gripes, whines, and calls from parents. Or our new GrεεkLifε package, which includes solo cups, kegs of light beer, and a hazing paddle!

FunnyRobes-Inc. is currently looking to hire a Professional Rationalizer to aid in the development of what will become our flagship product: APieceOfFuckingPaper. Our lawyers tell us that there is no way to charge people over $100,000 just for a diploma since it blatant scam and the fact that you have to offer something of "value" to charge that much, but we believe that the right candidate can find a way! Candidates should have at least a Master's degree in the humanities (JK! We are going to evaluate applicants on prior experience and ability).
