    Years ago we often quipped that the honourary DD was meant for Fiddle Dee Dee..........Then, we also labelled it Devil Disturber. They had their place, but were placed too often.

    I should imagine this "degree" would be the same.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I can see it now.... Pulpit Committee, after years of looking for just the right guy, discovers DOCTOR REVEREND Peabody, a fine lettered gentleman no doubt.

    "Oh, look," says Deacon Frankly Scarlett, "he got his doctorate from the same place as Bill Cosby!"

    Sister Blatsalot exclaims, "I just loved the Cosby Show! Weren't Dr. Huxtable's sweaters just grand?"

    "Can I be frank, Frank?", asks Elder Braindust. "Can we afford a man of Bill Cosby's stature at our humble church?"

    "Why sure we can!" The esteemed Brother Dunlop Overbelt shifted in his chair. "Feller with that high falutin doctorate ought to be able to get a good paying job somewhere. We could make him bi-vocational!"

    "Well, I declare," declared Sister Blatsalot. "Why the good Reverend DOCTOR Peabody is nearly a dear friend of Bill Cosby. We can't have him out pumping gas at the truck stop/dental clinic/Post Office. What would people think of us?"

    Brother Overbelt rises to his feet. Clearing his throat for emphasis, "A man has to believe in something. I believe it is time to move to the refreshments."

    With that motion The First Third Street Grace Motown Road Baptist Church calls Rev Dr. Peabody until he is found as a fraud and disgraced by someone who did not like the Cosby Show.

    I second Brother Overbelt's motion.


    Would this be like the Doctorate I received from Wassa Matta U?
