Paris does Cambridge

Pooter Geek brings us the shocking news of Paris Hilton’s appointment as vice chancellor of Cambridge.

Or maybe not so shocking.

The crowning of Noam Chomsky as the World’s Leading Public Intellectual and that of Madeleine Bunting as Director of think tank Demos have taught us that there is more than one way to spell intellectual ‘rigour’; now we want to teach the world that there’s more than one definition of ‘vice’,” explains Dr Lethree Clevadge, Spokesperson for Cambridge University.

For those ready to cite this post as evidence of Harry’s Place’s increasing trivialization, let me hasten to note that this is only the fifth time we have posted about Ms. Hilton and the first such post without any basis in fact.
