    Two doctors, a psychiatrist and a proctologist, opened an office in a small town and put up a sign reading: "Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors". The town council was not happy with the sign, so the doctors changed it to read: "Schizoids and Hemorrhoids." This...

    Nothing, other than a shitload of student loan debt and worthless piece of paper that I can't even be bothered to buy a frame for. Unless you're a doctor or a theoretical physicist, college degrees really don't mean a whole hell of a lot in this society. Sorry...rant over.
