Feedback from my students at Yale & Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. 

Fun, love, typos and all — these kids are hilarious, they just crack me up! 🙂  

Hey, Harris, what if one of your male colleagues made a salacious remark on “boobs” at a work meeting? 

He’d be kicked out in 5 min, right? 

Hell, yeah.

Hi! Sorry I have been so busy studying and preparing for final. This was hands down one of my favorite classes that I have ever taken (minus the 8 am portion lol).

You taught me more than just literature which will help me much more throughout my life. I never really thought about how important it is to act a certain way during class. I never put myself in the professors’ shoes and thought about how my peers and I can affect the professor. You taught me to always be respectful to my professors and peers, to not talk while they are talking and not use my electronic devices like my microwave 🙂

Another thing that you have taught me if how to incorporate visuals into a presentation, how to write a good academic essay and how to use resources to understand what I am reading rather than just giving up. Not to mention you have taught me about all of the great books and authors that we have read.

Another thing that I value is your use of guest lectures. Guest lectures change it up a bit and keep the viewers attention. I think that this is a fabulous tool.

I am so grateful that you have been open for office hours whenever I need. I am a student who needs a lot of reassurance that I am on the right track so the one on one time with you gave me that. On top of your very generous office hours, you were very good with emailing me back quickly if I was having trouble.

I will do my best to watch the movie, I may be swamped all week but I will defiantly watch it when I’m home if I don’t have time here. Thank you so much for everything that you have done this semester, you found a way to make me not hate English! Thanks!!!

Dear Professor,

I handed in my final to campus safety today to put in your office because the office building was locked. They said that they would put it in your mailbox. I am unable to hand it in because I have a final at 8:30 that goes to 10:30. If you do not receive it please let me know.

You are an amazing teacher. I have learned so much in this class and I have enjoyed it very much. I am a nursing major and you would think that I would not have any interest in this class. But after attending a few of your classes I loved it. You have helped me in so many different ways. For example I am now able to understand how to write an academic essay for college and I can use that skill for the rest of my college career and my life. Also I learned many life skills and how to show a presentation.  Thank you for everything you do and also, for helping me adjust to college and making my freshman year one I shall not forget.

Thank you,

Theresa Fletcher

Dear Prof Viggiano,

I very much enjoyed taking this class. I appreciate how much time and effort you put into grading our essays, whenever I got an essay back I could see how much you care. There was so much detail and thought into my comments, and those comments helped me improve my overall writing!

I think that presentations were an amazing way for us to learn. It made us get out of comfort zone and practice our oral speaking and presentation skills (skills we will need to know in the future). I also think the method of presentations was also helpful because we didn’t have to cram so much into our brains in one short semester.

I told my mom this and I’m not sure if it will make sense but you’re the most “fair” teacher I’ve ever had. You understand the struggles of being a college student so you try to find the best possible way for us to learn but also teach us all of the material that we need to learn, and I sure learned it! It would be impossible for anyone to say that you are a teacher that doesn’t care about her students or class, just one look at that final and you can see how much effort you put into us learning.

You always emailed me back when I had questions and you were always available for office hours.

I also enjoyed when your husband came in to speak, sometimes it’s helpful to have a change of pace in the classroom and I really valued the opinions that your husband had. He made the point of how important it is to be professional. I never thought in our English class we would listen to Miley Cyrus but we did! 🙂

Hope you have a wonderful holiday and thank you for being such an amazing teacher!


P.S. When you played classical music it was very calming/soothing

Dear Prof Viggiano,

I am so happy to see that my hard work has paid off, and also happy to see that two other of my class mates have put in the time and effort as well. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my time in your class environment. Your class lectures allowed me to understanding the main content of any text that was given and your use of guest speakers and other internet sources such as youtube allowed me to develop an even better understanding of our course curriculum. You were clear about what you wanted to see on our essays and tests, which allowed me to focus on making my work great, instead of worry about if I’m writing about the correct thing or not. There is simply not one thing I can say that i did not enjoy in your class. I am honored to be taught by someone with such a deep back group in school, and respect every though and idea that you brought up in class. I really appreciate all the help you provided me with when I sought your help as well.

All the best,

Daniel Lisi

Professor Viggiano,

That is very exciting news! Thank you. I have learned a lot from your teaching this semester and really enjoyed going to class every day. An example of how you have helped me is first with oral presentations. I’ve learned that by slowing down and using the whole stage, it will help gain more attention from viewers. Secondly, your office hours were very helpful in being successful in this course – you made the information clear and gave insight into the papers. Lastly, I have become a stronger essay writer thanks to your classes and feedback on the academic essay structure, which has helped me succeed in other courses. The class was very exciting and taught me a lot, so thank you very much, Margherita!

Hello Professor Viggiano,

It’s great to hear that my grade is around A. I’ve been working on my final everyday which much effort, so I hope I get a good grade.  I learned a lot this semester in your class. The things that stuck out to me is how helpful you were as a professor during office hours. When I met with you to discuss Hamlet, I learned and understood so much and you were very willing to help me to comprehend it which made feel good. Also, I really liked how detailed your comments were on our essays because the positive criticism helped me out a lot.

I very much enjoyed your class. I love the way you teach as well as the fact that you are an easy professor to both contact and talk to. I know personally I was ill many times this semester and you were understanding during every account. I like the way you have students do presentations to help learn more about the readings making it more interactive. I personally get nervous during presentations and I felt as though I helped myself by presenting. Thank you for the enjoyable experience

Hi Professor Viggiano,

You have been more than a great help to me this past semester and I thank you for that. You have helped me with my writing skills and making sure I develop a strong thesis. You take time to grade essays and put in hand written comments, when most teachers do not. You also taught me that class etiquette is key for having a successful career and I thank you for that. You not only made class enjoyable, but you related topics to everyday life, making it easier for us to understand. Thank you for an amazing semester and happy holidays!

Professor Viggiano,

Thank you very much for the congratulations. I know I wouldn’t have received that grade if I didn’t have such great assistance and explanations throughout the semester, so thank you!

As far as the class, I can definitely say it’s never easy having an 8 am. So, it’s hard to like a class that does take place so early on in the AM but I can definitely say I have no complaints. You made the class enjoyable by making sure it wasn’t a straight hour and 15 minutes of pure lecture.

There were often times guest speakers, movie clips (I definitely would suggest you continue with these, it’s always nice to have a visual break/ time where not too much thinking is needed)***, presentations, material always put on blackboard for our convenience and plenty of time to ask questions when needed.

And you always challenged our intellect with the on-the-spot questions about the material we had learned. What was even better was that you weren’t just an in-class professor. You were always available for any outside help we may have needed.

Thank you for a great semester and happy (almost!!!) holidays,

I am about 3/4s done with my final!  I believe it is going pretty well.  I enjoyed the class very much, although sometimes I found it very difficult to focus because of the many distracted people that were in it.  I enjoyed the writing exercises that we participated (essays and quizzes), and I really enjoyed all the books that we read.

I thought you were very generous with all of your documents and PDF’s that you put on BlackBoard for us, and I thought they were very helpful.  I also thought that your comments on quizzes and essays were very helpful in furthering my skill in academic writing.

Also, I have not yet received any further information about the Honors Application, but when I do I will let you know.  Thank you so much for being willing to write a recommendation for me!

Dear Professor Viggiano,

I appreciate the update! I’m glad you were my professor, you made it very clear and easy to excel in English. I truly thought that you did an excellent job teaching our course. Some skills I have learned this semester are to go in serious depth when researching a topic. I grew a better analytical sense to my reading, and I credit you for it. The only problem for me with the class was the 8 AM time, because I’m like a zombie in the morning!

Thank you for a great semester!

I have learned many things this semester, one major benefit I had from this class is improving my writing skill. More specifically, I learned how to sustain an argument for a long writing assignment. This helped me recently because I had to complete and 8 page long Criminal Justice paper.

Dear Prof. Viggiano

I did enjoy the class this semester because it allowed me to challenge myself by looking deeper into a passage and finding the true meaning behind it. Also, being able to put what I believe in a paper was important to me.  Something that was very helpful was when you put the study guide and guidelines on blackboard. It was very helpful when writing essays and studying for quizzes because instead of worrying about a million things I would have to write about I was able to relax and focus more on the key points and my thoughts.

Thank you for your class and great teaching,

Hey Professor,

Thank you for making this class a memorable one. I can honestly say I enjoyed it more than most of my other classes. I feel that taking your class has helped me become a better academic writer and critical reader. The challenging yet relevant materials that we have read this year were truly interesting. I think the thing that helped me most was the ability to meet with you during office hours. Most teachers do not make themselves openly available for office hours, so this was very helpful. Overall I enjoyed this class and I will definitely take time over break to watch Gandhi. Thank you for everything and hopefully you enjoy your winter break as well.

Thank you very much for the time and effort that you have put forth towards our class.

Although sometimes I felt the lectures were difficult to understand at first, the study guides you provided definitely helped me gain a better understanding of the material. Throughout the semester, we not only explored different concepts in literature, but we also learned a lot about professionalism.

I greatly appreciate that you took the time to take things that went on in our classroom and apply them to similar situations in a work place. Overall, I enjoyed the class, and I feel that I am more prepared than others to enter a work environment. In addition, I liked when you e-mailed us summaries of each class; it really helped me stay on track. Thank you again for your diligence and dedication. It definitely did not go unnoticed!

Warm regards,


P.S. I will make sure to watch Gandhi over the holidays!

Hi professor Viggiano!

First thank you for everything you did this semester! The class really helped me prepare for future writing in college. I feel that your in-class explanations were very helpful because you explained in detail all the major themes or scenes of the plays or books we read, and that really helped me get a better understanding of each of the plays.

I also thought your blackboard responses were very helpful with the essay writings we had to do because they were great guidelines to help us trigger thoughts and get us on the correct path, not many professors do that, but it was definitely a major help with my essay writing and critical ideas.

I also felt that the presentations were a great way to help the class become more comfortable presenting in front of an audience, especially because I am not one who loves talking and presenting in front of people.  Again thanks for all the help this semester it is truly appreciated, and yes I will definitely try to see the Gandhi movie over Christmas break! Have a merry Christmas!

Prof. Viggiano,

I’m proud to have such a high grade in your class! I will make sure to work hard on the final to try and enter the A range. I enjoyed this class because I not only learned important writing skills such as learning how to write the academic essay but also learned how to be an overall good student. I think it is important for every professor to reinforce how students should act in the classroom and in the workforce.

Another part of your class that helped me was your guest speaker. Professor Viggiano had a lot of good background on the books we were reading and knew a lot of history about it. It helped me know the topic more thoroughly.

I also noticed that going to your after-hours helped me a lot because we could focus more on what I personally was having trouble with and elaborate more on it. Thank you so much for teaching me this semester. I really did enjoy your humor incorporated in the lectures and I’m glad I was put in your class! I got a lot out of it that I will use throughout the rest of my college career.

Mrs. Viggiano helped me extremely throughout the class with any questions I had and thoroughly explained topics I didn’t understand.

I also like how you always explained everything in class and made the class interesting by linking the concepts we went over together. I also like that we learned not only about Literature but also History.

I also appreciate how nice and understanding you were when I was ill. You really helped me catch up on the curriculum when I got back especially with office hours and I really appreciate it.

Sorry that I am only replying now, I’ve been very busy in the midst of finals as you can imagine. I’m so happy that my grade has improved and I am definitely working hard on my final to lock in that A-.

I have definitely enjoyed the class this semester. I was not always a very strong essay writer and I feel that I have improved in that aspect. I also learned a lot about professionalism that I had never been taught in any other class before. I actually learned a great deal about the bible that I had not known before, especially how it helped form the United States Declaration of Independence.

I felt as though the guest-lectures were very important in getting the background information of a time or place before reading a book, like the Odyssey. I also thought that the films, class presentations and in-class explanations were extremely helpful whenever I was lost in a book or with an idea.

Thank you so much for helping me improve this semester and I will definitely watch Ghandi during break!

Thank you for all of your hard work in this class.  I wanted to thank you for all of the offices hours you made available, I think I was able to truly benefit getting a little extra time to understand things.  This class was able to teach me how to be better prepared for presentations, and knowing the correct format for a paper.  The guest speaker was also a nice way to help explain an idea further.   I also wanted to thank you for making everything available on Blackboard, it was nice to have these PDFs help us on reports and the test.

Thank you!

The class was a lot of fun and you are a lot of help when it comes to writing papers. Just the right amount of work not to much not too little. And you really know everything you teach which no matter what subject is beyond fantastic. You kept the class interesting with class discussion and movies on the books which where a huge help for me someone who really doesn’t enjoy reading too much, its harder for me to read and picture something its easier for me to read the book then watch the movie and vice versa, helps so much! Only thing I felt was difficult was the final but I understand it has to be being its the final! All in all, it was a great class and really enjoyed being one of your students! I just saw your email prior my email account doesn’t work well and stuff comes in really late. Thank you!

Enjoy your holiday!

Prof. Viggiano,

Thank you so much. I’m so happy, It has been a good semester and I am so happy I was fortunate enough to have you as a teacher. As a student, it was always somewhat difficult to understand the teaching styles of many of the teachers I’ve had. I have often struggled in school because of this. However, you Professor Viggiano, have taught me so much and helped me grow as a student.

In the past few months you and our class have helped me learn so much about so many different works of literature, different authors, and the difference their time period has had on them. This semester your class has showed me that books, movies, stories, etc. should always be looked at in the context of the time they were written and that they often reflect the author on a deeper level than just their upbringing. You are a great teacher Prof. Viggiano, don’t let other miscellaneous make you think otherwise.

Margherita Maleti Viggiano,

Thank you so much for the very sympathetic and informative e-mail! I am so grateful to have such an inviting and understanding professor like you! I really enjoy the works of literature that we are reading in class, and I am looking forward to learning more in your class.

You are an excellent teacher, and have amazing characteristics about you and your teaching! I like that you are engaged and interested in the material which enables you to become very enthusiastic about the information. This is extremely helpful to me and I believe the majority of students who are attending your class and listening, because it helps them gain a willingness to learn and understand the material.

I will continue to try and participate and stay on top of my work! Also, for the next class on Friday, I will read and analyze Odysseus’ son, Telemachus’ speech which he performs to his fellow villagers, found in Book two of the Odyssey, by Homer, and be prepared to my interpretation of passage. Thank you again, and I am looking forward to our next class on Friday!

Hey, Sassy Saucy, why don’t you hack this Academic Satire up your old, broken ass? lol


Programs and Policies of Yale’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Fall 2011, p. 530.  

“The history of intellectual growth and discovery clearly demonstrates the need for UNFETTERED FREEDOM, the RIGHT to THINK the UNTHINKABLE, and CHALLENGE the UNCHALLENGEABLE [sic]. 

To curtail FREEDOM of EXPRESSION strikes twice at INTELLECTUAL FREEDOM, for whoever deprives another of the right to state unpopular views necessarily also deprives others of the right to listen to those views.”


It is an established fact that Shakespeare’s mother came from an ancient French Catholic family, the Ardens, who went to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. Catholicism influenced Shakespeare’s artistic production in many different ways, especially in the context of post-reformation England, a country torn apart by religious and political persecution against Catholics. 

Shakespeare was an author with Catholic ancestry who managed to survive persecution thanks to his linguistic genius. The fact that he used the Catholic term “indulgence” in the epilogue of his last big play, The Tempest (1611), is a sign that Catholicism maintained an influence over his art until the end. 

The seat of the Catholic Church is the Vatican State, which is located in Rome, Italy. When I was hired at Yale in 2005, there were ZERO Italian Americans and ZERO African Americans in the English and comparative literature departments. But even after 14 years, the situation has not improved.

Throughout my doctorate program at Yale, I have always been harassed, abused and discriminated against because of the connection between Italy and Catholicism. Italian Americans and first gen Italian immigrants are treated even worse than African Americans, in these two departments. 

Indeed, these two departments are KKK-friendly like Sassy’s insane and racist father, Tupper Saussy. 

Tupper Saussy was an insane conspiracy theorist who befriended and wrote an apology for James Earl Ray, the murderer of Rev. Martin Luther King, Black leader of the Civil Rights movement! 

That racist conspiracy theory was titled, Tennessee Waltz: The Making of a Political Prisoner (1987, more details below). Twelve years later, it was followed by another conspiracy theory against the supposed influence that Catholics exert over the American government, which was titled, Rulers of Evil: Useful Knowledge about Government Bodies (1999). 

Notice the convergence of these recurrent themes: racism and discrimination against African Americans; racism and discrimination against Italian Americans, who are seen as “guilty by association” with the Catholic background of their country; bigoted and defamatory accusations against Catholicism, which are so ridiculous and outlandish they actually are a testament to Tupper Saussy’s fundamental insanity.

This crazy discrimination, this mad racism has no place in a civil society and it must stop. 


But Sassy has NEVER apologized for his father’s insane racism and his connections to the Klan. 

Sassy has NEVER offered a sincere apology for, and he has NEVER distanced himself from, his father’s racism and his connections to the KKK. In fact, he has always tried to portray him — and, by implication, himself — as an underappreciated, misunderstood genius. Nice tray, jackass! 🙂 

It is extremely offensive for everyone that he should currently be employed at the University of Chicago, in a city plagued by a tragic “racial divide,” cf. Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department, Eddie Johnson, video below.  

My husband and I have had to deal with the racist hatred of this bigoted, ignorant pig for 14 years, now. Sassy has slandered not only me, but also my Italian-American husband, my Italian parents, and even my relatives back in Italy! 

Indeed, Sassy slandered me with virtually everyone at Yale: administration, faculty, and even graduate and undergraduate students, e.g. the 2012 defamatory article on the Yale Daily Shit with which Sassy and his network of “dear friends” in English, comp.lit, etc. tried to portray me as a Catholic bigot only because I asked a male colleague to STOP CUSSING!

That’s just the ABC of professional work! 

Nobody cusses in a professional meeting or in class, that’s absolutely improper and illegitimate! 

All sexist cuss-words should be kept for some other “occasion,” after work. 


Miss Bradley Bailey & friends, original pic from his personal profile.

That criminal defamation happened in 2012, right after I filed a grievance for administrative corruption against Pamela Schirmeister. It caused me and my entire family an incredible amount of distress over the years; it damaged every aspect of my personal and academic life; and it had a very detrimental effect on the readers of my 2013-14 dissertation on Catholicism in Shakespeare.

 But do you think that Sassy and his network of “dear friends” have ever even offered a simple apology? Or asked for forgiveness, for all their baseless and meaningless slander?

And how about the Yale President and the administration? Not at all, quite the opposite! That was the intended effect — their aim was to see me completely destitute, by destroying my reputation all over the word. But now that my ACADEMIC SATIRE is being read in big numbers all over the world, there’s a new feeling in the mix: they would gladly kill me, if they could! 

And after killing me, they would try to cover up their crime and corruption with even more slander, while at the same time blabbering about the humanitarian need to shelter and support illegal immigrants; have more diversity in academia; empower women and minorities; accept any other different identity, etc. 


If you want to kill other people with slander, you should expect them to tell the TRUTH about all your crimes in order to WARN others!  


In 2007, Sassy had to face a very unusual THREE-WAY DIVORCE involving himself; his ex-wife, Yu-Lin Wang; and one of his graduate students and dissertation advisees, Olga, born February 28, 1971.

Let’s call her Olga Stupidieva or Olga Boozava, in honor of the Russian prank against retarded Adam Shiff. 

In other words, Sassy cheated on his Chinese wife with a mature grad student and teaching assistant from Russia, whose dissertation he was supposed to “supervise” — and no conflict of interests there, of course! 

At the time, all three of them were employed as teaching staff at Yale, in different capacities, 

giving a great example of “basic human decency” to everyone. 

It was a HUGE SCANDAL that the administration tried to silence by offering the ex-wife a permanent teaching post in the Chinese department, on the one hand; and on the other, by getting rid of racist Sassy and his bitch, who have (paradoxically) been recycled in Black Chicago. 

Yale is a village. Before the divorce, Sassy had a “reputation” for: 1) being a promiscuous pig, which is a compliment at Yale; 2) advertising Cialis (a drug against erectile dysfunction) on his pretentious and ridiculous site, which nobody reads anyway; and 3) compensating for his embarrassing E.D. with an interest for violent BDSM sexual practices.

Notice Sassy’s “academic” support for Moira BDSM Fradinger, an old hag who uses her “scholarly interest” in the Marquis de Sade to cover up for her insane perversions; and notice his “close friendship” with the late Richard Maxwell, a self-proclaimed “sex historian” with no academic credentials, who should never have been hired as a lecturer at Yale to begin with.  

I must say, when I learned that Sassy’s ex-wife required a protective order against him in 2007, I was not surprised at all. Yale is a village, and such was his bad repute 14 years ago, when I first met him. But his 2007 DIVORCE was like THE ATOMIC BOMB for Sassy.

Total destruction, total devastation. 

Such a DISASTER would naturally lead most people to develop a more humble and self-critical attitude toward life. But that’s not the case for Sissy Sassy Saucy: that jackass continues to blame everyone else — including students! — for every catastrophe that he himself caused in his own fucking life, as a consequence of his illegal and reckless behavior. Don’t worry if you can’t make sense of it — that’s the very nature of mental illness. 

More about Sassy and Stupidieva below. But right now, let’s set the record straight: you don’t have to be a Catholic in order to write respectfully about Catholicism. And, on the other hand, the fact that you write about the influence of Catholicism on European literature does not mean or imply that you are a Catholic yourself. As far as I’m concerned, I’ve always been a financially independent woman with a modern and independent mindset. But I can also respectfully appreciate the influence that the Judeo-Christian tradition has had over the history and culture of Europe and its colonies.

To deny that powerful influence is a big academic and financial fraud.

On top of that, it’s a sign of arrogance and ignorance at the same time.  

But when we deal with English and comp.lit, we don’t find an attitude of intellectual respect, on the contrary. Arrogant and ignorant people like Sassy, Katie Trumpener, David Quint, Leslie Brisman, Harold Bloom and many others, are long-standing academic frauds who try to impose their bigoted atheism on everyone else, even when it goes against historical evidence, previous scholarship, academic freedom and freedom of expression.

Such academic frauds try to impose their own disregard for Catholicism on everybody else in their little square meter; without considering that just around the corner, many other venues — e.g. the divinity school, the art history dept, the school of music, the school of architecture — could not even stay open without Catholic theology, Catholic religion and the sublime art inspired by it, e.g. Giotto, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Caravaggio, Lorenzo Bernini, Bellini, Donizetti, Rossini, Verdi, etc. 

Chronological List of Italian Composers:

Being ignorant, they ignore the truth; and being corrupt, they deny it even after someone explains it to them. In my opinion, things have gotten much worse since Buckley first published his ground-breaking book in 1951: 

“[Yale] does not recognize religion as an indispensable field of study for an educated man… overtly or covertly hostile to religion, whether through the silent treatment, active opposition, or supercilious disparagement… a colorful fanatic… emphatically and vigorously atheistic… a dedicated iconoclast who has little mercy either on God, or on those who believe in Him, and little respect for the values most [students] have been brought up to respect… bigoted atheism… relentless disparagement of the whole fabric of Christianity.” (Buckley, God & Man at Yale, 10-12)

Speaking of metaphors, one of my 4 (four) quite enthusiastic recommenders for graduate school at Yale was Professor George Lakoff at the University of California at Berkeley, who at the time was doing research and teaching on metaphor theory

My other distinguished recommenders were Professor Rosa Maria Bollettieri Bosinelli, a renowned linguist from the University of Bologna; the late Luigi Schenoni, James Joyce’s translator for Finnegans Wake in Italy; and Professor John Bishop, a famous Joycean scholar and English professor, always from the University of California at Berkeley. 

In my junior year in college, I attended George Lakoff’s large and super-competitive class on metaphor theory, scoring a perfect A. The following semester, I also did very well in Robin Lakoff’s class on English socio-linguistics, scoring A – (sorry you were never even admitted). Hence my appropriate, perceptive and empowering use of swearwords, or power-words. Therefore, Sassy, you shouldn’t compromise yourself with lies about about my proven linguistic abilities because they will be completely destroyed. 

Empathy, Freedom, Fairness for all — sounds like Yale. 

If you want to pull off an academic and financial fraud,

make sure you can do so without also being denounced as a corrupt and ignorant jackass. 


Leslie Brisman, 75, the best unknown Shakespeare scholar in the world, is also a self-proclaimed authority on metaphors. It looks like he’s still stealing someone else’s salary despite his decrepit age, intellectual mediocrity and proven corruption. 

Public record: “17 January 2019: Leslie I. Brisman was born 22 May 1944 and registered to vote, 5 Woodside Terrace in New Haven, Connecticut 06515-2020. Democratic. Voter status code: Active. Voter ID number 001603516.”

The actions of a public figure will be scrutinized by many, many eyes. 

Front cover of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, with the Book of Kells.  

That’s a very intricate design, and Honi soit qui mal y pense!  

Sissy Sassy Saucy is a “Low Swine” (173.5) “meticulously bordering on the insane” (173.34). He’s “covetous of his neighbor’s Word” (172.30) and completely ignorant of “the various meanings of all the different foreign parts of speech he misused.” (173.34-36) 

Together with Olga Stupidieva, his dissertation advisee, he has been pulling off a record-breaking academic and financial fraud since 2005-2006, producing several “forged cheque[s] on the public, for [their] own private profit.” (181.16-17)

In Joyce’s style, his missy-nomer could be “Sissy,” “Sassy,” “Saucy,” “Sisso,” which is an Italian term for “pig shit,” and so forth and so on. His first name could be Hawn, Hen, Hoe, Yawn, Honn, Honi, which is French for “cursed.” And the end result would appear as any combination of the two sets — a myriad of schizophrenic personalities like those of his crazy conspiracy-theorist father, Tupper Saussy, from redneck and racist Tennessee.   

Academic Satire for the New Online Millennium, “with them listening and spraining their ears for the millennium and all their mouths making water.” (386.10-11) I told you, homeboy — u can’t touch this. 

Let me tell you a secret, asshole:  

This is ACADEMIC SATIRE, a special type of protected speech.  

The reason why my academic satire works all over the world is because it is BASED ON THE TRUTH. 

Satire does not oppress the innocent, but it exposes and makes fun of liars, hypocrites and criminals who pretend to be what they are not.

Through the artistic means of academic satire, I can warn many other people against the hidden corruption of frauds and scammers like yourself and Olga Boozava. Nobody in the real world gives a damn about formalism and deconstruction; but most people do care a lot about the money they spend to educate themselves and their children!

That’s the great benefit of academic satire:


In a bigoted place like Yale, I’ve always been discriminated against much worse than African Americans. Therefore, I owe it to the comedic genius of Richard Pryor if I’ve been able to turn those racist and sexist slurs into images and words of empowerment.  

Tale the Phi Beta Kappa up your broken ass! 

“Satire is a particular genre of literature and performing arts in which entities and individuals may be ridiculed… In this type of production, vices or shortcomings may be exaggerated for comedic relief and as a form of public shaming… In many productions, satire may help expose certain characteristics of an entity or individual to help establish awareness of these characteristics throughout society. Ideally, satire will help society communicate about social issues… Satire is individually-constructed and therefore may contain different elements. However, many forms of satire feature parody, exaggeration, sarcasm, analogy and irony.” 

The best laughter always springs from the truth. 


The best laughter always springs from the truth. 

You can’t fake it, as you do with fake learning and fake feminism. You can’t forge it, as you did with your second wife’s shameful comp.lit dissertation on the “Body of Christ.” 

And you can’t slander it, as you have been doing with me and my husband, my Italian parents, my Italian relatives — or indeed anybody who speaks up to denounce your ACADEMIC AND FINANCIAL FRAUD. 

My satirical websites are designed to WARN people, students and their families against the SCAMS of dangerous scumbags and hypocrites like you.  

“Bitch, you can’t fuck with me if you wanted to!” 🙂 

Jesus! Body of Christ! 

Only a complete idiot finds a mistress who’s even worse-looking than the wife! 

Beware of plagiarists and stupid bitches like Olga Stupidieva!

During her doctorate in comp.lit, Olga Stupidieva was involved in a dirty extra-marital affair with her “dissertation supervisor,” Sissy Sassy Saucy. As soon as his legitimate wife, Yu-Lin Wang, found out what was going on, she dumped and divorced him.  

In 2007, Ms Wang obtained a protective order against Sassy’s domestic violence,

took everything that was free for the taking,

and kicked that dirty pig out of Yale forever.

Too bad. 


 Crazy things people do when they’re drunk… 

Sassy was supposed to direct Olga Boozava’s “academic research” and dissertation, but he actually plagiarized and “curated” all that bullshit. 

First he asked his “dear friends” (Yale, Phi Beta Kappa, etc.) to pass it. 

And then he pestered each and everyone in the business to come up with a tenure track for that dumb bitch — in a bogus field such as film and comparative literature, at a time when not even Albert Einstein would be able find one! 

No conflict of interest there, absolutely. 

NO UNIVERSITY needs to WASTE MONEY for a TENURE TRACK in film or comparative literature! An adjunct or two will do — or even better, no one at all, since it’s a bogus field with a high rate of unemployment and underemployment.  

What a scam!  

And what did Sissy Sassy do with all the stolen money?

Did he pay alimony and child support to his ex-wife, Yu-Lin Wang?  

A national catastrophe for all Russian women. 

The “Body of Christ” is a very paradoxical subject for a couple of drunken cheats like Sassy and Stupidieva. And it took Sassy no less than TWELVE YEARS to rewrite and publish a small part of it! 

Why was it even passed, then, by 3 personal friends of his?  

Woah, there’s a entire bottle of cheap wine in that glass! 

Yu-Lin Wang was not enough — Sassy must have a thing for triangles…

Olga Boozava, Victor Fan and, of course, Yawn Saucy taking the pic. 

That looks like a cheap, cheesy & crappy sex scene 🙂 

Counting one, two, three
Peter, Paul and Mary
Getting down with 3P, everybody loves

What we do is innocent
Just for fun and nothing meant
If you don’t like the company
Let’s just do it you and me
You and me, or three
Or four, on the floor

Living in sin is the new thing!

Saucy & Cheesy  

Victor Fan is another academic parasite, another monster-creature produced by Sissy Sassy Saucy, who also supervised his GROUND-BREAKING comp.lit dissertation on soccer, drugs and booze.

Very deep, and very original.  

That crap has never been published, of course.

A compete waste of resources. 

The U.S. government wants to stop funding useless fields like film and comparative literature, which only cause alumni to go bankrupt working as temporary adjuncts with no benefits, no pension, no vacation, no healthcare plan or sick days. 

The only people who manage to find decent jobs in such preposterous fields are the “partners” and “friends” of old bitches and academic frauds like Sassy, an insider for some 30 years now. I wonder, how do they fuck Victor Fan? 

Maybe the two guys suck each other and Olga Boozava is on top, fucking Sissy Sassy in the shit with a strap-on? That’s what he really likes! 🙂 

And that’s the fucking truth!

Or maybe…


When the shit hits the fan! 🙂 

Victor Fan is a trashy old drunkard who pretends to be a woman… 


And in his delusion, he’s absolutely convinced to be healthy and attractive. 

But if the entire human race suffered from his same mental illness & pathological delusion,

we would disappear from the face of the earth in less than 100 years!


Victor Fan is an adjunct who gets hired and fired every year.

As soon as the next economic crisis kicks in, he’ll be one of the first to get fired. 

And what will he do, since he doesn’t have a fucking dime? 

Who would ever fuck an ugly old ass like Fan? 

To fuck or not to fuck, that is the question… 

Sissy Sassy wrote, ehm, supervised Olga Boozava’s crappy dissertation on the “Body of Christ,” which was passed in 2006, read all the details below. The theological topic is very paradoxical for a couple of drunken cheats, and it’s also completely outside the scope of comparative literature. What the fuck does Sassy know about Theology, Resurrection and the Kingdom of God? 


Sassy’s “virtue of Zen emptiness” 🙂

He claims there is “no subject matter or methodology” in comparative literature,

meaning that anything goes if and only if his ignorance likes it. 

Public record, ORBIS catalog at Yale Sterling Memorial:

Author/Creator: Solovieva, Olga Viktorovna

Title: A discourse apart [electronic resource]: the Body of Christ and the Practice of Cultural Subversion

ISBN: 9780542995767 

Published/Created: 2006 

Thesis note: Thesis (Ph.D.) Yale University, 2006. 

Advisers: H.C.P.S. (one name, one person — see tomb stones below and at the end)

Physical Description: 1 online resource (284 p.)

Format: Archives or Manuscripts 

Summary: This dissertation is a study of the Western secular appropriation of the basic structure of Pauline discourse for the purpose of cultural subversion… The body of Christ allows for the recuperation of bare life within the structure of resurrectionwhich underlies a subversive anti-model of the ethical state, the kingdom of God, etc. 


C… (first name) P… (middle name) H… (surname) was Sassy’s maternal grandfather, who was just 59 when he died (1904-1963). Sassy’s crazy father, Tupper Saussy, christened one of his unfortunate children with the surname of his in-laws, perhaps because he was pretentious and out of his mind. Sassy’s mother, instead, Lola Haun, died in Florida when she was just 55. 

These people seem to be short-lived, like lies! 

Sassy lobbied to have Boozava’s crappy dissertation passed by his “dear friends” at Yale, Phi Beta Kappa, etc. But that CRAP was SO BAD — so pretentious, incoherent and off-topic — that it took him no less than TWELVE YEARS to “convince” someone to actually print some of it. 

What a complete waste of toilet paper! 

Fortunately, only 7 copies were ordered by an equal number of cross-eyed librarians… 

Compare and contrast: my ACADEMIC SATIRE may have 700,000 views each year

only from Russia and China combined. 

God’s irony… 


Tupper Saussy: a “strange inheritance” of paranoia, corruption and shame. Saussy’s anti-Catholic conspiracy theory claims that Catholics have been trying to mastermind U.S. politics. 


All proceeds from Tupper Saussy’s racist and bigoted conspiracy theories — and from Olga Boozava’s fraudulent hire at the University of Chicago — have been used by Sissy Sassy Saucy to pay alimony and child support to his smart ex-wife, Yu-Lin Wang.

Ms Wang also managed to obtain custody of her child, keep the house and half of everything else. On top of that, she also kicked that promiscuous and violent pig out of Yale forever. Congratulations!

Is the President of the University of Chicago, Dr Robert Zimmer, aware of Sassy’s record-breaking academic and financial fraud? And does he know that his crazy father, Tupper Saussy from Tennessee, was an infamous conspiracy theorist enmeshed with the Klan? 

Tupper Saussy was an insane KKK conspiracy theorist who befriended and wrote an apology for James Earl Ray, the murderer of Rev. Martin Luther King, leader of the Civil Rights movement.

That’s something terribly stupid, evil, and doomed to fail.  

And that’s something to remember, especially whenever Sassy tries to cover his ass by means of self-serving slander against the people he wrongly perceives as his “enemies.” What a sick individual! 

Sassy has NEVER offered ANY apology for his father’s KKK conspiracy theories over the years. 

On the contrary, he’s been praising that madman in the most implausible and ridiculous way, presenting him as a “misunderstood genius,” hoping to be seen in the same light. What a shame! How the fuck was that racist pig even hired at Chicago, of all possible places!? 

Eddie Johnson, the Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department,

talks about the tragic “racial divide” in that city.  

Check this out: Sassy’s father, Tupper Saussy, was a crazy conspiracy theorist with ties to the Klan, who spent the last years of his life in jail. He suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and thought that the government was persecuting him by means of taxation!  

He was later condemned for tax evasion and fraud, and tried to avoid a prison sentence by absconding and fleeing the Feds. In order to do so, he lived like a bum on the streets for more than 10 years, eating in soup kitchens and taking occasional “showers” in public libraries… 

Now, that’s a picture-perfect background for academia, isn’t it? 


University of Chicago President Robert Zimmer doesn’t look like a fraudster, e.g. Sassy and Stupidieva. Nor does he look like someone who would willingly participate in an academic and financial fraud. 

University of Chicago President Robert Zimmer signs a water research agreement with Ben-Gurion University of the Negev President Rivka Carmi. Also present at the ceremony, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Israeli President Shimon Peres (2013).

But perhaps Robert Zimmer is too focused on math and other objective disciplines that actually make sense —  maybe even with a subject matter and a methodology! — in order to notice a couple of drunken cheats and crazy plagiarists in the comparative literature dept. 


In my opinion, Olga Boozava is an ignorant, stupid whore from Russia with a bad drinking problem, depression and crappy white hair. The last time I saw her in New Haven, about 8-9 years ago, her empty head was already completely grey. Body of Christ! 

By this I don’t mean ANY offense to the typically beautiful Russian people — I have lots of viewers from that great country, who probably harbor a couple of doubts about the virtues of censorship and communism.

Russian women are internationally known for their beauty; therefore, someone as ugly as Olga Boozava does a great disservice to her country. In my humble opinion, she should be declared a NATIONAL CATASTROPHE!

According to our intelligence, the vast majority of Russians who operate within American academia are involved in some form of spying on behalf of their government. That’s not good. 

The best way for them to get American citizenship is always the same, i.e. giving birth on American soil. Check this out: 48-years-old Olga Boozava, born 02/28/1971, decided to have her first pregnancy at about 39-40, and the second just a few years later. Wow. 

That’s a new meaning for “Russian roulette!” 

Let’s have a look at Sassy’s splendid family, so he can feel entitled to slander anyone else:

 These are Sassy’s brothers working at a Mexican restaurant,

Phil (Pierre-Philippe, first on the left) and Larry (Laurent, first on the right). 

A family of intellectuals…

Making America Great Again

Their crazy father, Tupper KKK Saussy, tried to exculpate the murderer of Martin Luther King, leader of the American Civil Rights!

I really wonder: if anyone in my own family had had ANY connection with the Klan, or any other racist organization, I’d never have been hired as a teaching assistant and graduate student at an Ivy League university. That would have been even more important than my international academic credentials. 

So, HOW THE FUCK did Sassy get in from Duke?  

Maybe Yale is much more bigoted and racist than they care to admit? 

It’s easier for a bocci ball to get into Sassy’s ass, than for Sassy to get into the Ivy League:  

Rest in hell, insane KKK conspiracy theorist;

water-color painter of paper bags;

convicted tax evader;

fugitive bum for 10+ years;

prison inmate;


And after all that insanity, racism and corruption, 

how on earth can that hypocrite be tolerated when he slanders anyone else? 


Sassy’s breast envy & castration complex has a name, and it’s called Yu-Lin Wang 🙂  

Links to my academic satire, Court Documents for Stupidieva, Sassy and Wang


Sassy cannot identify any methodology or subject matter for comparative literature. But this doesn’t say anything about the discipline itself, only the way he fraudulently misrepresents it. 

Sassy is an ignorant plagiarist who has been projecting his sick, empty, ignorant mind onto an entire discipline for too many years. It’s time for someone to denounce his fraud and warn others! 


Should comparative literature really be like “the virtue of Zen emptiness,” as he foolishly claims? Of course not, that’s an academic & financial fraud. Without any established methodology, how can anyone judge anyone else’s academic research and writing? 

There are ZERO African Americans 


ZERO Italian Americans in comparative literature. 

It’s KKK-friendly, like Tupper Saussy.  

The dogs involved in this scam are academic plagiarist and fraudsters who cause an incalculable damage to the education system, not only in this country but also in Europe. 

They give false witness, make up stories and forge “undeniable” evidence to kill anybody who speaks up to denounce their crimes, for instance: abuse and sex harassment of students and teaching staff, work exploitation, defamation, libel, extortion, blackmailing, etc. 

Examples of extortion: “We must have sex, or your academic career is over;”

“You must work at this job for free, or your academic career is over;”

“You can’t write about this topic I can’t even understand, or your career is over.” 

Example of blackmailing: “If you tell anyone about my crimes, your academic career is over.” 

Sam See, meth junkie and HIV-positive bitch. 

Sam See was an assistant prof. in the English dept at Yale, with a double life as a “professional” prostitute and meth addict, who got infected with HIV. He also had manic depression and suffered a “small stroke,” cf. New York Times,  

But with “dear friends” such as Katie Trumpener, David Quint, Sissy Sassy and Leslie Brisman, not even THAT would have prevented him from making tenure and getting a permanent post at Yale. 

The problem is that he also committed suicide in jail, with a meth overdose, on the very night he was arrested for domestic violence and threats to the police, i.e. “I will kill you, I will destroy you!”

That’s EXACTLY the kind of guy you’d want to teach your kids, isn’t he? 🙂   

But he “destroyed” himself, instead — too bad! 

Ms Frank & Yale’s fake feminists

How’s the academic employment in Norse poetry? SUB-ZERO! Well, then, if you’re so honest, the best thing you can do is to fabricate stories and slander the people you don’t even know. 

If that sick, crazy asshole hadn’t killed himself in jail, he would have been promoted to a permanent post at Yale, thanks to the honest and always reliable recommendation of his “dear friends,” e.g. Katie Trumpener, David Quint, Sissy Sassy, Leslie Brisman, etc. 

Those scammers support their worthless “friends” — like the deceased Sam See — with whom they have a pact of non-belligerence and mutual protection. In other words, they don’t rat on each other’s ignorance, conflict of interests, financial frauds, sexual abuses, etc. 

For instance, if someone needs a cover-up for something illegal he’s doing with his dissertation advisee, in 2005-06… You get my point. In this way, they try to keep their scam going as long as possible. 

And in corrupt places like Yale, this only adds insult to injury when you consider that 99% of the teaching personnel don’t even have a Yale degree, but come from lesser universities in the U.S. or around the world. So, do they become more competent when they’re hired?

Of course not — same crap as before. 

How is it that the best scholars in English are always employed somewhere else, e.g. the U.K. or Berkeley?    


These are the envious, ignorant rednecks who use PERSONAL CONNECTIONS and NETWORKING within their fraternities (like Phi Beta Kappa) and with their previous colleges and universities (like Yale, Duke, Stanford, etc.), in order to slander students and scholars who immigrate to the U.S. legally. Beware of those criminals: they’re like the mob, and they will never change.  

Sassy harasses and slanders immigrants and people that he considers vulnerable, so he can create a DIVERSION and cover up for his ILLEGAL CONFLICT OF INTERESTS and EXTRA-MARITAL AFFAIR with a graduate student that he was supposed to “supervise” for a 2006 dissertation on the “Body of Christ.” That isn’t just cheating: that’s a record-breaking ACADEMIC and FINANCIAL FRAUD!

Every human being must face death and judgment, and no one will escape God’s Justice.  

Christian saints are humble, and they would never usurp God’s Mercy, Justice and Retribution. Now, Sissy Sassy Saucy is certainly NOT a saint — in fact, quite the opposite of that. And yet, he self-righteously feels entitled to put himself in the place of God.   

What incredible arrogance, ignorance and hypocrisy!

And what a fall from grace! 

Sassy should never forget that human life is full of unforeseen circumstances and acts of God. Especially since he has a perfect example of INSANITY in his father, Tupper Saussy, who blatantly suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and was convinced that the government was PERSECUTING him through taxation, which eventually led to his trial, condemnation and incarceration. 

Paranoia, schizophrenia and jail? A deranged and deeply disturbed individual who befriended and (unsuccessfully) tried to exculpate the murderer of Martin Luther King? But what an excellent DNA! 🙂   

And speaking of Divine Justice, many physical and mental illness may befall you, especially since they’re already in your DNA, before you reach your final destination 6 feet under: 


CPH was Sassy’s maternal grandfather, who was just 59 when he died (1904-1963). Sassy’s crazy father, Tupper Saussy, christened one of his unfortunate children with the surname of his in-laws, perhaps because he was pretentious and out of his mind. Sassy’s mother, instead, Lola Haun, died in Florida when she was just 55. These people seem to be short-lived, like lies! 

Until very recently, self-professed “sex historians” like Richard Maxwell — Trumpener’s partner, who died of BRAIN CANCER in 2010, aged 61 — had to place special orders at their academic libraries, like Yale’s Sterling Memorial, in order to have access to all types of porn. Until very recently, all types of porn were available there, including child pornography, supposedly bought with your tuition fees and government funding for “academic research.” 

In my opinion, and in the opinion of many, all the scumbags involved with that racket are criminals who should go to jail and remain there for a long, long time.  

For sick individuals like Maxwell, Trumpener, Sam See, Sissy Sassy, Olga Boozava, Moira BDSM Fradinger, etc., researching “sex history” has always been a way to cover up for all their problems — their mental illnesses, depressions, strokes, brain cancers, alcoholism, drug addictions, sexual perversions, HIV and other sexually transmissible diseases, etc. — while at the same time profiting and making a ton of money off of them. 

That’s how FEDERAL FUNDING as well as YOUR HIGH TUITION FEES have been wasted for years, in order to finance the “humanities” with porn. But now that the Internet has taken over, both public and private money can be saved for other “cultural” initiatives…

No, thanks. 

“Talk about lowness!” (FW 171.29)

Big Bette, Sissy Sassy and the high culture of racist & redneck Tennessee. That’s where that jackass comes from and what he really is, so he should stop claiming he comes from Paris, yeah right 🙂 That’s just fucking pathetic!
