'He's quite handsome, but there's something about the shape of his features that suggests there's a fat man inside waiting to bust loose...'

That's Ann Althouse, ripping University of New Mexico Psychology Professor Geoffrey Miller, who slammed fat Ph.D. candidates on Twitter for "lacking willpower to do a dissertation."

See, "Fat-Shaming in Academe" (at Memeorandum).

The university's response is here, "UNM Response to Tweet by Professor Geoffrey Miller."

And go straight to the video of Department Chairwoman Jane Ellen Smith. It turns out that Professor Miller is apparently claiming that he's doing research on "provocative tweeting."

I gotta remember that one for next time the idiot progs contact my department!
