my dad, suggesting a dissertation topic:

no, marie. listen to me. everything on robin hood has not been done! because - and let me tell you this - they met on a bridge! a classic freudian image. they had battle with their staffs! - because robin hood and little john were homosexual lovers. i mean, come on. and the sheriff of nottingham? he was fucking titillated by it! they fought and everything, but it was just to throw everyone off the scent. he was part of their little triad. oh, and their little things, their little green - mantles? kirtils? - their what-the-hell-evers. those are feminine. theyre like little skirts. i saw the movie, man. basil rathbone.

Your dad made us all duck and cover in class. He showed us the cideo with the little song. Also he kept talking about The Simpsons. I imagine you already know all of this, but how can you possibly question his graduate level work with credentials like that?
He wouldn't let us recreate the Irish Potato Famine in class though. :(

That's so funny! I was just having a conversation with a friend who is getting her PhD in fantasy literature and we discussed how the word "kirtle" on the first page is an absolute requirement.
