MLA in Medieval Kansas

I have the vague sense that this was meant to be funny.

(Click to enlarge to a readable size.)

Maybe I'm a humorless medievalist for thinking it just sounds a little... earnestly common? And then wondering whether it could be leveraged to reform current university structure to make it a little more like thirteenth-century Syrian madrasas and Parisian universities — in other words, flexible in ways that would make medievalists' lives within universities more sensible.

I suppose the fact that I didn't realize that "occupy" was still a thing is probably telling — whether about me or about them probably depends on one's perspective.
