Renouncing the Professoriate for the Black Arts

Brian K. Vaughn's Runaways is a book that I consistently enjoy reading; issue #13, which I read this afternoon, depicts Molly Hayes, a young and powerful mutant, falling in with a group of homeless thieves who are controlled and exploited by a modern-day Fagin.

I laughed out loud when I read the panel in which the villain explains his motivation:

Having renounced his tenure, the villain now prefers to be called The Provost.

The man is clearly dangerously twisted, because I know of no one--no one--who has renounced tenure (or ever would).
