Sometimes the ease of posting at gradcafe is unfortunate, resulting in misinformation and unnecessary clutter, but other times it is simply funny.

Here are a few posts I liked:

PARIS SCHOOL OF ECONOMCS Economics PhD Other 2007-04-15 (Other) 2007-04-14 I I've been buying a lot of boxes of Fruit Loops, trying to find one of the few that comes with a Paris School of Economics admission as the toy inside. I finally found one, but now I think it's fake. Is it true that they only put them inside fortune cookies? If so, will they honour the admission I found?

I found a few gems myself while obsessively browsing through all twelve pages of all the econ results. The Paris school bashing is over the top though.

Which PSE were they referring to? The one in Paris, Idaho, or the one in Paris, Texas, or maybe Paris in Virginia? That's a very important distinction.
