ABD

Doesn't really read well after M.A., M.A.:

M.A., M.A., A.B.D.

suddenly the humor is gone and it all just looks like hard work.

Also, no longer "Just a".

Now I'm nearly Ph.D. Or, nearly "effed", if we're going to go with the verbal cleverness.

maybe I just need more punctuation. I'll take out the letters and be:

Just a ..,..;... or: Just a ..,..,... (to match what I wrote above); or: Just a ..,..,"..." if I want to indicate that A.B.D. is not an official degree.

I think I need to have Just a N.I.,T.E, O.F.F.
