Today's funny quote

From a review of a book called "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" in the NYT:

"In his novel “Changing Places,” David Lodge — not on the list — introduces a game called Humiliation. Players earn points by admitting to a famous work that they have not read. The greater the work, the higher the point score. An obnoxious American academic, competing with a group of colleagues, finally gets the hang of the game and plays his trump card: “Hamlet.” He wins the game but is then denied tenure."

"He wins the game but is then denied tenure."

What a perfect punch line!
