dressing down

Former Harvard president Larry Summers, in reference to the interaction immortalized in The Social Network (via Gawker):

[O]ne of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at 3 o clock, there are two possibilities. One is that they are looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an asshole. This was the latter case.

  1. Since several of my wife’s relatives graduated from Pravda-on-the-Chuck during the time the Shliefer-Supporter and Woman-Hater was running the place,I can assure you that Summers is lying about his attitude.

    Of course, it’s getting to be that “How Can You Tell Larry Summers is Lying?” isn’t even worth telling as a joke.
