Why, anybody can have a camera. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous
creature that crawls on the earth or slinks through slimy seas has a camera! Back where I
come from we have universities, seats of great learning, where photographers go to become
great photographers. When they come out, they take great photographs with no better camera
than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got: A degree! Therefore, by virtue of
the authority vested in me by the Universitatus Committeeatum E Pluribus Unum I hereby
confer upon you the honorary degree of Ph.D.
