"The real reason for scholarly writing is to help the economy by creating jobs for middle aged women who like punctuation." I love it! I don't know what grade your thesis got, but you get an A here for humor!

I laughed and laughed, all the way through this. I wasn't going to read in this level this week, but I'm so glad I did! By far my favorite so far.
Don't have the vaguest idea about scholarly writing. Never went to college nor had any desire to, but I found this so amusing. Thank you for your story.

What a riot! I laughed at the "creating jobs for middle aged women who like punctuation." Great creativity here!
You created a fun, readable article on what could be an otherwise very boring topic. I'm glad I never became a grad student.

I always thought scholarly writing was a bit irksome--now I am convinced. LOL! Loved it!
