You Know You Have Made It When

The Simpsons disses you:

I don't mind this at all, since an attitude that McGill is the Harvard of Canada does no one any favors except the t-shirt makers.  As I have said before, the students are terrific at McGill and I would match them with those anywhere else.  But thinking that a school is already number 1 tends to create an attitude that changes are not required.  Why fix what isn't broken?  Um, because you can do better.  Instead, there tends to be a satisfaction with how things have always been done because, hey, we are the Harvard of Canada.

So, if the Simpsons can just shake this attitude just a bit, it would be a good thing.
