OK, just kidding. But just for a second, the Harvard class of 2010 thought the Hutt-like former president had been brought back for the job: someone sent the gullible young ones an official-looking e-mail announcing the appointment. The buzz over at Bored@Lamont is pinning the prank on the Lampoon. The best part? The practical joke forced Harvard to declare their real pick a day early, and it’s perhaps more exciting: law school dean Elena Kagan, who will be the first queen of the Crimson (i.e. female president). Looks like Bollinger really is sticking around a little longer.
