Tenure with a Click

A friend at Marshall University in West Virginia, Steve Cooper, sends along a link to a priceless resource, the Postmodernism Generator.  A masterpiece of programming, the PoMoGen will supply you with a short essay, utterly meaningless, grammatically correct, and complete with footnotes, in the most fashionable academic jargon of our time.  And best of all, the randomly generated but highly impressive-looking nonsense is brand new every time you visit the site or click “refresh.”  Visit the site for ten minutes, print out some samples, and go up for tenure in your favorite humanities or social science department!
