chrismohney: miltnr: Also, I am old, should not be wearing pigtails, did not actually write my dissertation, and am destined to be a “comunity college professor”. Hilarious comments aside, the point I was making is that internet memes have been largely ignored in academia so far— not that they are dismissed by everybody.

I may have just taken the time to talk about cotton futures and the rising cost of raw silk in response to a fan concerned about whether inferior fabrics were being used in her clothing. I mean she did ask (well complain is probably more accurate) about low quality materials so I went all well let me tell you about our sourcing team and how silk is at...
