Philip H. Anselmo is a man, a visionary, a songwriter, and an intelligent human being. His constant use of the word “boy” and “son” have inspired a whole new generation of guys to completely abort all correct use of the English language while continuing to use big, fancy words like “philosophical”, “punk”, “boy”, and “fuck.” Philip’s contributions to the world would not go unseen. In the tradition of other musicians getting honorary degrees such as Bruce Dickinson’s honorary doctorate from Queen Mary’s University in London and Jimmy Page’s honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music, Philip H. Anselmo can now proudly join the ranks as a musician to receive an honorary degree.
Over the Top Metal News was told that Philip H. Anselmo is the proud recipient of an honorary Associates Degree in Basic English and Grammar from the University of Phoenix Online. William J. Pepicello, PhD, president of University of Phoenix Online had this to say:
We here at the University of Phoenix are proud to honor Mr. Philip H. Anselmo with this honorary Associates Degree in Basic English and Grammar. We have been a fan of Mr. Anselmo’s work for sometime and with his groundbreaking re-working of the English language and grammar, we feel that he is more than worthy of this honorary degree. We look forward to Mr. Anselmo joining us at the ceremony. Walk on up boy… and get your diploma.”
