The Strip-Theses…

… (pronounced strip-tease) is a dance out of Germany. The steps are easy, and indeed the dance is popular all over Europe:

1. Plagiarize your thesis.

2. Be found to have plagiarized your thesis.

3. Be stripped of your thesis.

The latest high-profile strip-theses has been performed by (performed on?) Margarita Mathiopoulos, who

joins the ranks of German political figures to be stripped of their doctorates for cheating in their theses – a group infamously led by former Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg whose disgrace led to his resignation.
