A science professor at Columbia University on Monday began a quantum mechanics lecture by stripping into his boxers and eating a banana while rap music played in the background.
Then it got weird.
The professor, Emlyn Hughes, proceeded to redress himself in black, complete with sunglasses, and hug himself on stage at the front of the classroom, a large theater.
As Hughes sat in the fetal position, two “actors” dressed in ninja costumes walked onstage and placed white stuffed animals — lambs — on stools before the audience . . .
The ninjas blindfolded the lambs, then a ninja impaled one of the stuffed animals with a long sword and banged it against the stool — right as an image of a plane hitting one of the Twin Towers on 9/11 started rolling on a large screen behind the performance.
Read the whole crazy thing. Don’t forget that Columbia University is not only Barack Obama’s alma mater, but also employs Professor David Epstein, the Palin-hating HuffPo blogger who carried on a three-year incestuous sexual affair with his own daughter.
Remember: The academic elite are our moral and intellectual superiors.
