  1. Needs a subtitle: A Post-Constructivist Analysis of Instantiated Ontogeny, starring Henry Fonda as The President.

      1. Doris Day in the recording I’ve got. Lehrer played with his lyrics sometimes. In “Pollution” I’ve got “The breakfast garbage that you throw into the Bay / They drink for lunch in San José” because it was recorded in San Francisco–but I’m told that the New York version has “Troy” and “Perth Amboy.”

  2. Why would one need to problematize Foucauldian Hegemony? It’s already a problem. St Ronnie once said as much: “Government is not the solution, it’s the problem. That, and Foucauldian Hegemony.”

    P.S. In case you’re wondering why nobody knows about the second part of that quote, it’s a massive cover-up by the Obama administration (second only to Benghazi, of course). I’m surprised the Repubs didn’t bring that up while filibustering the Secretary of Hegemony, I mean, Defense.

    1. The title of my new book: Incentivizing Solutions to Global Warming
      Subtitled: How Capitalism 3.0 can save the World

  3. Buzzphrase generators have been around for a while now. The typical application is managementspeak, but you could as easily make one for any other intellectual subculture you dislike: critical studies, feminism, etc.
