The Professor of Boredom award is bestowed upon those academics who display an enlightened disinterest in the success of their students. The award recipients are as bored with mollycoddling and nannying their students as they are fascinated by their academic area of discipline. Professors of Boredom do not pander to their students. They would find that boring. This annual award of dubious value is unceremoniously thrust upon a professor misfortunately selected by the Bored of The British Toast Rack Society.
