Hey Dan, Can we get the degree in our choice of font? And do you take Pay Pal? I find that users prefer a varied selection of payment options;) Keep up the great work!

Are you a crappy but ambitious designer? Career going nowhere? Tired of
spending time at conferences learning things but have nothing to show for it
except knowledge? Don't want the hassle of getting an actual degree at an
accredited university in design or HCI, but don't want to pay some company
money for their fake accreditation? Well, have I got a solution for you:

Announcing the new DESIGN USABILITY HEURISTICS (DUH) Accreditation Program.

For the low, low cost of only $1000, I'll personally send you an email saying
you're now certified to call yourself an expert in design and/or usability.
Or UX Professional, if that's what you prefer.

Impress your boss, HR, and recruiters with your new DUH certificate (printed
certificate cost not included). Put your DUH after your name in signature
files, biographies, and on your website. No more feeling jealous about those
PhDs or Masters!

With your new DUH degree, watch how people who don't know any better flock to
your services. Raise your rate! Ask for a raise. With DUH, the sky's the
limit! You'll be surprised at how much you already know is now worth...and
it's worth even more in countries who don't know any better and/or are easily
impressed by fake degrees!

So get your credit cards ready and become a DUH certified designer today!
