Every university I've been around seems to have at least one person who does a format-check of deposited theses, to make sure that margins are not encroached, that figures are appropriately titled, and that the quota of gerunds is not exceeded. My advice for years has been for students to leave one egegious flaw so the format-checker can do his or her job with dispatch and without dire consequences on the thesis.
But lately, most students use macro packages or templates that are essentially blessed to create a format-ready thesis. It's getting harder and harder to give the format checker somthing to chew on. So I started wondering what would happen if famous authors submitted theses to our university. Here are a few examples.
I don't know if you have noticed, but by weblog seems to follow the e e cummings format. But I think that for my thesis, that follow the Yoda format I will.

Unfortunately the Word of Ouida has already been handed down in the form of an email message this afternoon: Thou Shalt Not Submit Incomplete Theses. Therefore Ms. Rowling won't be able to graduate for, at this rate, about 10 years.
