But it wouldn’t be nothing – nothing! – without a woman or a girl to abuse.

There’s Oxford professor in good standing Tariq Ramadan, lying through his teeth as long as he possibly could about his apparent rapes and now ah shit okay I did those two… But they were begging for it… There’s Yale professor in good standing Michael Simons who okay yes I was a bad boy but I’m suing you for a trillion dollars for taking away my named chair

Behind every great man is a great man; Ramadan has his powerful male supporters; and then there’s Robert “Two Chairs” Alpern.

    I’ve actually run across several female Ramadan supporters.

    John: Had no idea about this version! Major thanks – my kid is currently dancing to it while I enjoy it…

    the grateful dead scene was indeed a man’s world but still an odd song choice for them

  6. chatlie Says:

    Is Robert “Two Chairs” Alpern related to Arthur “Two Sheds” Jackson??

  7. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Charlie: I hope so. Although Arthur ‘Two Sheds’ Jackson only thought about getting a second shed, but in the end did not purchase one, while Robert ‘Two Chairs’ Alpern did in fact appoint a faculty member to two chairs.

  8. charlie Says:

    I see. Now UD, this wonderful poetry that you’ve published on this site, did you compose it in a shed?

  9. Margaret Soltan Says:

    There’s actually one very good (very famous) modern poem about a shed: “A Disused Shed in Wexford.”

  10. charlie Says:

    But you have none. From now on, you’re Margaret “No Sheds” Soltan….
