I believe all of his degrees were fully-paid-for... :P

I bet that if he was alive he would have a Doctor Honoris Casusa title by now...

Dropped a ciggie on his lap? Those late '60s, early 70s clothes burned up pretty fast.

Since he went to college for a short time to get some poontang and succeeded I wonder what he could have done with an Honorary Degree? Some Honorary Pussy for sure! :mrgreen:

Hehe, nice comment. I don't know if he had any degrees, but if he did.. he was a damn smart man that's for sure. You can tell from what he's written about that he was well educated.

Possibly my favorite FZ quote of all time. In a similar vein...

"In my lifetime, I have met far more idiots with college degrees, than I have idiots without college degrees." - Me :)

He managed to survive only one semester at Chaffey College, as far as I know. He also took his kids out of school. While he himself attended 7 high schools. It's from the detailed bio by William Ruhlmann.
