"Tenor professor" for tenured

Tenor professors have earned the right to hold forth and call the tune. Or is it “have tenor”, as in the second example … toned and tenacious? I’m not too sure about this one so I’ve put it here in slips.

1. Pyramid Scheming
2. Stripping
3. Prostitution
4. Gold digging
5. Treasure hunting
EDIT: 6. Tenor Professor.
They make just under $100,000, teach 3 days a week and get summers off! However, I’ve never met a tenor professor under the age of 60…

That durned Obama agin

Maybe related: tenner sax, alumna mater and alma martyr, and illumini.
