‘I am a product of THAT Somerville’: Four million visitor hits?
'Hargo' may have taken down his ‘Somerville Gates’ site
due to heavy traffic. But you can still view the original wonder here.
The parody and sarcasm have been perfect at every stage. Now compare the following quote to the one immediately below:
"At last an artist for our times who spans not only space-time continuums but the archaic human-animal divide and presents a postmodern perspective interrogated by the feline."
"While the faculty gratefully acknowledges Mr. Summers' apologies for degrading remarks about women and for lapses of respect in his communication with faculty members, the faculty also wishes to register its dissent from a number of pronouncements by the President that would otherwise appear to represent us collectively, and to urge limits on the proposed expansion of presidential prerogatives."
The first is an email Hargo got. The second is a faculty member’s proposed motion

editorializes on ‘the tempest in academia's teapot.’ ... Do you think the pinhead Christos and Harvard types of the world have an inkling how they come across? Seriously. Do they occasionally wonder?
