Johnny Lechner is my hero

Univeristy of Wisconsin student Johnny Lechner has it right. Notice that I didn't mention what year Lechner is in Madison. That's because he's been there 12 years. And he's not done yet.

Lechner started at Wisconsin in 1994, and was all set to graduate this spring, but he changed his mind at the last minute. He has 100+ credits more than are needed to graduate (234 so far) and says he can claim a triple major and triple minor.

Rumors are that Lechner has stayed in Madison for the girls and the parties. He denies that's why he's stayed. If that's the reason he's staying in school, and he can afford it, I think he's smarter than anyone graduating with a 4.0 GPA.

If I could still be in college, I would be, but I don't think my tuition benefit would have kept up for another 8 years. He sure is wasting a buttload of someone's money, but I bet it's worth it.

Worth it? You can go to the parties and nail the babes, and not be officially registered in classes. Doesn't take a Michigan Man to figure that out. Wiskyites are pretty dumb though.

I can remember a few years ago, when I was out of college and my sister was like a junior or something, I was talking about how much I wished I was back in college and Ann was talking about how anxious she was to get out into the real world and graduate already. I just about grabbed her collar and re-enacted the scene from "Billy Madison" right then and there -- "No! You have to stayyyy! Don't ever graduate! Cherish it! Cherish it!" Since then, she has graduated and admitted that I was right.

I guess I have the best of both worlds. I work as a librarian at a university. I get paid to go to college and help undergraduate females.

I hate to burst your bubble, but he's not at Madison. He's at a small satellite school, UW-Whitewater. He literally has no excuse. He's in a crap town. Read all about it: http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=422398
