Oh the humanities! Part II

Apparently high-class prostitution pays better than fully-funded grad school. In the humanities or the sciences.

One of the apparent selling points was that a number of the women had labored to acquire graduate degrees.

I'm not sure if that makes the pay difference better or worse.

Take a guess.

While it's clear how graduate degrees could leave a person in debt, it's not at all apparent, to me at least, why this supposed to be a selling point for the men. Unless the degree is in, say, massage.

"Kirsten wrote her master's thesis on Kristevan erotics in Salambo and Nana; she is 5 " 7, brunette, and fond of kittens, whip cream, and men who will spend $5,000 for a few hours in her company."

Peculiar people, these multi-millionaires.

That had better be a joke. Because it's basically Woody Allen's sketch/monologue, "The Whore of Mensa." I'm waiting for someone to pay me over $5k/hr to talk about 19th century French Jews. Everyone I know has already heard more than enough...

No, this version is very original, because it concentrates on French literature. Just call me Alain de Danzique.
