The Most Grotesquely Comical Academic Paper Ever Published | PJ Media

From the article: 
The following is not an example of academic hijinks, but a serious academic attempt to feminize glaciers.
I bet you didn't know that glaciers were sexist. Well, maybe they're not. But they definitely lack the feminist touch as it relates to "epistemological questions about the production of glaciological knowledge." Or...whatever.
Yes, it's gender theory meets climate change in a clash of two of the titanic irrelevancies of the age. And the results are as banal as you would expect them to be. The paper was vomited forth by a group of University of Oregon historians - obviously the perfect candidates to write a paper on climate change. And they spared no liberal shibboleth in the making of this mish mash of hash.

I think we have hit the tipping point.  Pun intended.
