You know you're over-educated when...

... a Washington Post article about a popular new plastic surgery--Designer Laser Vaginoplasty--reminds you of Robert Frost (1874-1963).  From his 1915 poem "Mending Wall"

Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun,
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.

Dr. 90210 should use this poem in his promotional materials.
