No, its not….but as a fan of The Ohio State University that would be a heavy helping of Just Desserts! We have used stories in the past from The Onion and I have to say they are my favorites. This week “America’s Finest News Source” has a special issue on the workplace, a must read! This story plays so well into our past diploma mill stories I felt compelled to post this satirical masterpiece. I am hoping for some background check stories to pop up soon. Enjoy.
ANN ARBOR, MI—The University of Michigan has become the 17th institution of higher learning to be implicated in the checks-for-degrees scandal rocking American campuses, representatives from the Department of Justice reported Tuesday.

“We have strong evidence that the University of Michigan granted academic degrees to students in exchange for hefty payments, often totaling tens of thousands of dollars,” Deputy Attorney General James B. Comey said. “In the process, thousands of graduates have emerged with degrees, but few or no skills applicable to everyday life. And many are as unprepared to enter the job market as they were when they first enrolled.”
