In a desperate effort to make money, a for-profit college Film and Photography college announced today that in addition to its usual photography and film making, it will now have a concentration in pornography.
Like most for-profit schools, it has been hard hit by the economic downturn and has had to scrape to make ends meet. It has made a name for itself as one of the leading photography schools in the nation.
"We've fired lot of great teachers, sold our main campus, laid off many employees and done everything we can to make a few bucks", said Admissions Director Elmo Fudd. "We've even dropped our standards to allow the 'lesser intelligent' students to come here. But the kids just seem to think paying a hundred and fifty grand to go to a school with no future is a waste of time and money. Pornography will never go away and there's a good future in it for talented photographers and film makers".
Porn star and film maker Jenna Jameson will be the acting chairperson for the pornography department. "You can only get so far taking pictures of flowers and apples", Jameson told Unconfirmed Sources. "I'm going to teach these kids how to make a living!"
Finding actors for the films would not be difficult as Southern California has no shortage of aspiring porn stars.
"Most young people and everyone in California loves sex!" said President Lizzy Hairass. "We anticipate enrollments going the roof!"
Some parents interviewed expressed displeasure with the new academic concentration. "I have spent years trying to make sure my son never sees a nude woman", said devout Catholic mother Sherry Windgate. "If it comes down to Harvard or them, then he's going to Harvard!"
