If there’s a better metaphor for the job prospects of college grads in Obama’s America, I’d sure like to hear it.

Yale Introduces Bartending Class for Underage Students
Yale University has announced that it will begin teaching an informal class on bartending. Now students can learn to mix cocktails on the university’s dime.
The Yale College Dean’s Office will host three free bartender-training sessions beginning Jan. 28 in an effort to raise awareness about alcohol and decrease high-risk drinking. The training includes a two-hour course in mixology and a four-hour course in Training and Intervention Procedures (TIPS) — a national program designed to reduce risky drinking by improving the knowledge and intervention skills of alcohol servers. Twelve students attended a pilot training session held Dec. 10 and 11, and 30 students will be allowed at each spring event.
“We know underaged people are drinking,” said Director of Yale Catering Robert Sullivan. “We’re trying to see what we can do to make sure underage students understand what a drink is supposed to look and taste like.”
For “underaged” students? Apparently, Yale wants to make sure that when underage kids drink, they do it right.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
What could be more vital of an Ivy League university than teaching underage students what a drink is supposed to taste like? And they announced it with such a somber, self-serious tone, full of platitudes about “high-risk drinking” etc.
Are they serious? Yes they are!
Ha, ha, ha, ha. (I’m sorry, please allow me my blog laughter.)
What a coddled generation. What’s next? Toilet training classes?
