Personal/Dork Whine: Mortar Boards = Academic Fashion Death

Aaauuggghhh!!! Mortar boards?!! Every picture I saw of Marquette Ph.D. robes had tams, not mortar boards! I never would have come here if I'd known I had to graduate in a propeller-beanie and not a cool tam! I guess all the cool Marquette people have tams made instead when they buy their robes.

"I have to say tams ARE pretty cool and their origins are Scottish and Irish; so you better get "sewing man" - so you can capitalize on your Irish heritage - longing to address you as Dr. Dork also, because it is just too darn funny - but I'll refrain from the "outright" and just confess the desire to do so (no difference in the end is their really?)"
