    Again, he called it that just to annoy people like you.

    It's going to be a collection of "classes". The first one was posted Wednesday.

    It doesn't annoy me I believe in free speech even though it is intended to be misleading.

    I was not talking about the class. I was talking about the term "Beck University". Go back and read a little bit in the thread.

    Oh right. Sorry. The TITLE is misleading.

    Not really if you know Beck's humor.

    While I agree with out that the word university doesn't really seem to fit here, what do you think the correct word would be. I thought college might be the best word since there are other online colleges as well.

    It's not a REAL college, soccer. There are no credits given.

    Because I understand what he calls "the fusion of entertainment and enlightenment". Just because he's VERY sarcastic and uses hyperbole for humor, doesn't mean he's just a funny man. He uses BOTH humor and facts. You see?
