Philosophy and English Combined Under New Pataphysics Course

By Frederick “Quickie” Mercurium

After much confusion and discord between Philosophy and English faculty, both departments now have a new course that covers common ground: pataphysics.

“I have to admit, I was just joking around when I suggested that,” said Professor Lazlo Gorman, a guest professor from Sacred Heart University, “I didn’t think you stag-smartasses would actually consider it.”

As Gorman attempted to discuss the actual nature of pataphysics, both the poetry and philosophy professors began agreeing on the strange and very confusing idea that was supposed to be a joke to begin with.

“It’s — it’s a — it kinda — well —,” said English professor Judy Saddesohng. “Okay, I’ll say it. I kinda thought it was existential and cool to agree on.”

The new PH 2090 course, Pataphysics and Why You Shouldn’t Have Made This Course, is set for the Fall 2021 semester. Who would actually take this course is another thing entirely.
