No Tenure for Indiana Jones

McSweeney's published a great piece that is an academic review document for Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones, explaining why his tenure has been denied. Read it here.

I just prepared one of these files myself. In fact, I think this would be a little funnier if it wasn't quite so negative -- academic documents are not as negative as this one, but the application of experience to standards does ring quite true.

I have an idea for one of these that is a "student evaluation form" of Jesus as teacher/rabbi. Maybe some day I'll have time.

Any other ideas for academic reviews of prominent figures?
