Singapore mulls liberal arts college without liberals or art

A spokesman at the Ministry of Education announced in a press conference today that Singapore is considering forming a new university, most likely a liberal arts college.  Since liberals are normally bankrupt in Singapore, and art is severely censored by the Media Development Authority, it has been decided that the university will be called a “liberal arts” college but there won’t actually be any liberals or arts there.  “We just need a good name to attract the poorly-performing local students and those students from nearby communist countries who don’t know what liberals are,” the spokesman clarified.  He added that “liberal arts” makes Singapore sound like a first-world country.
