A professor at Northwestern is now offering a class on Mad Men. Between this and the class on Lady Gaga, I’m beginning to think that maybe Old Kanye was right.
It’s a shame it’s being offered at the same time as my class on Mike and Molly.
Maura Kelly looks at the schedule for the Winter Semester
That class is gross, I will not be enrolling in it
At the culmination of the course, students will receive their B.A. (Bad Ass) degree.
That reminds me of that one Gil Scot Heron poem where he talks about how all the black youth are trying to get their “BA” on, but really they just run away every time their “Black Ass” is in danger.
He was black, so its okay.
Man i am racisty today. Shut up me.
Yes, I have a Bachelor of the Arts in Bad Assery, Graduated Cum Laude
I actually, no joke, wrote my senior thesis on Mad Men. And now my B.A. has qualified me to work as a Ba(dass)arista at Starbucks!
“you need the latest version of flash player to play this video”
If you get drunk and abuse women does that count as extra credit?
That’s your final exam
There’s class, and then there’s CLASS.
I’d like to “audit” that CLASS.
I’d like to be that teacher’s “pet”.
I’d like to do some “extra credit.”
I’m going to “study” him thoroughly.
I see a lot of “all-nighters” in my future.
I’d like him to give me a “test”
I’d like to have “sex” with him.
I would blow him because he deserves it….
Imma smang that.
If it involves staring for hours at the Joan Holloway gif that teacherman posted yesterday, then I already have tenure.
You also have to make a diorama featuring all of Pete Campbell’s bitchfaces.
Will images of his bitchfaces as Connor on Angel also be accepted as valid submissions???
Back to work!
I’m learning! I’m learning!
I have the most normal boner.
What’s with the new girl?
^ Me, I wish. (1991-2012).
I have the most animated boner.
I’ve been waiting for the day I could call my alcoholism, “research for my thesis”
“Although Allen has high praise for the show, he added that it does have some shortcomings:
‘I don’t think it fully addresses the complexity of race and ethnicity in the early 1960s.’”
“Entertainment can’t just address relevant social issues, it must FULLY address them.”
‘I’m also dismayed that Matt Weiner completely glossed over Proctor & Gamble’s controversial decision to switch Prell from a glass bottle to a plastic one.”
Will they be grading on a curve?
Ask Teacherman. He seems to know something about the contours of this show.
One semester isn’t much time for such a fascinating body of work.
That’s hardly enough time for the hourglass to run out.
“Shut the door. Have a seat. Please take out your syllabus and turn to the section marked ‘Week 2′. As you can see, we will be going over….”
“You should be thanking me and Jesus for that B-plus.”
Upvotes, Back and forth. Into each other’s avatars. Forever.
“And what if I only decide to audit? You’ll never speak to me again.”
“No… I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to get you on my attendance sheet.”
If I wanted to see two students fight I’d toss the final exam key out of my window.
I want you to do something for me, Pete. I want you to write a paper, and put all your research in it.
“Okay, so who can tell me who Sally Ride was? Anyone? Anyone? She was an astronaut.”
Why oh why can’t this be our BNPG for the week? WHY??? Also:
“He may seem like a ‘fun’ professor now, but just wait until finals. He only likes the beginning of things.”
“Class, when I saw you sitting there, I thought, I couldn’t imagine not seeing you there every morning. Will you tenure me?”
And we could call it BNPG: #TeacherMadMen
What you call “PowerPoint” was invented by teachers like me to teach pronouns.
Remember, Don: when God closes a door, he opens a textbook.
Well, I’ve got to go learn a bunch of people’s names before I fail them.
(This is the greatest game ever.)
“I always say, if you don’t like how your paper is turning out, change your thesis.”
I would like to enroll in the Bachelor of Videogum program, please.
So would your boyfriend. That’s what she said. Gabe is old. 2012.
Congratulations, you’ve completed the Bachelor of Videogum. That will be $20,000 please.
This hits so close to home because my boyfriend WOULD want to enroll, as he is also a Monster.
Another power couple? Who is your boyfriend?!
The best Monster ever, who will remain anonymous, cause, the internet. If it were not for him, it would not be for me and videogum. Also, me and happiness.
I’d like to minor in Winwoodisms:
Misspelled abortions are pretty. Just a little FYI for you on that little number, friend. Lost.
Classes offered at Videogum University:
Memology (see Baby Friday’s Course description)
Winwoodisms (see That one’s course description)

Masters degree program in how to unnecessarily add a lot of formality to your announcement that you are no longer going to commentate on blog posts because you have no fucking life what so ever.
This coming winter semester there’s a class at the University of Michigan that requires watching the first three seasons.
This Mad Men course sounds like the cure for the common semester to me amirite?
On a related note, I picked up the first 3 seasons on dvd from Best Buy on Black Friday for $30. Can’t wait to rewatch.
