Dennis Prager Hearts Me

Get a load of this hilariously mis-aimed email I just received:

Dear Ed,

Greetings on behalf of Dennis Prager and the entire faculty at Prager University!

In case you weren’t already aware, Prager University seeks to create a better understanding and appreciation of our unique American Judeo-Christian value system by leveraging the viral power of the Internet with content-rich, visually compelling courses. Taught by some of the best minds in the world, our five minute videos make key concepts accessible, understandable and fun. The result is a whole new approach to higher education – the five minute university.

I find this highly ironic. Prager, after all, actually wrote a column condemning higher education because it leads to atheism. Better to let people remain ignorant lest they find out that the world doesn’t work the way their 2000 year old holy book says it does.

But wait, it gets better:

The reason we’re reaching out to you today is simple: we love the work you’re doing and would be honored if you’d lend Dennis a hand in spreading the word about Prager U.

Oh yes, I’m sure you love my work. Like when I called Dennis Prager a second-rate Glenn Beck impersonator for this idiotic online university idea. I bet you loved that. I’m sure that’s why I got on your list. But don’t worry, I am spreading the word about Prager University; sadly for you, that word is “moronic.”

It’s signed by R.J. Moeller, Dean of Students at Prager University. Except, of course, it isn’t a university at all, it’s just another scam.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    So exactly how many people is that, including Prager himself?

    Do they have a medical school? I have ten minutes to spare.

    Geez, 5 minutes classes. How long does it take them to say “God done it”, anyway?

    This is not a new approach. There’s even a theology course.

  • Mr Ed

    Prager University needs a late night infomercial. Fifteen minutes three times a week for flat abs, who has time. Give Prager University just fifteen minutes and we’ll give you a PhD. Or you can become a doctor or lawyer in just ten easy minutes, no books to read or reports to write just watch a video. If you can use YouTube you can have the degree of your dreams*.

    You don’t say. Well you’ve sold me where do I sign up?

    The what? Five-minute university? ‘Scuse me while I go find my jaw – it just fell on the floor, so it’s gotta be around here somewhere…
