How do I get on this list?

I will need to work harder to make my class stand out.  These are the 15 strangest college courses in America. 

They all sound pretty dumb - but honestly, I can see how some of them came about. Trying to explain the financial crisis, the IS/LM model, and the role of inflationary expectations to my intermediate macro class, I have appealed to the following references:  "The Negotiator" with Samuel L. Jackson, the underpants gnomes of South Park, and Spicoli from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High".  So using the Simpsons to teach history doesn't sound that crazy.
