Foucalt You!

Academic words are fun to say and fun to type. I can give you plenty of them: 'Ontology', 'Epistomology', 'Postmodernism', 'Semiosis'. I learnt them all at university, but I sure as hell didn't learn what they meant.

Seems to me there are so many - probably meaningless - academic words and phrases out there that you could get a poem or two out of them. Like this ...
