A Greener Graduation

 I got my cap and gown for graduation today. SDSU is debuting new “eco-friendly” grad wear. They promise that in a years time the cap and gown will completely decompose.  So basically I paid 50 bucks to wear a bunch of compost. If I am going to dole out my parents hard earned tax evaded cash I want something that will last. Ideally a millenia or two from now people will find my cap and gown stuck to a fence post in some post-apocalyptic playground. Shouldn’t what I wear on graduation last at least as long as my Wrangler jeans?
