Duck Dynasty star Si Robertson is famous for coming up with a hilarious turn of phrase — only sometimes intentionally. “I tell a story like an M. Night Comealong [Si speak for Shyamalan] movie,” he’s bragged. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he didn’t learn his rhetorical skills from a school of higher learning. In fact, he says, college is “crap!”
“Some parents get all bent out of shape because their kids don’t want to go to college,” Robertson writes in his new book, Si-cology: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty’s Favorite Uncle. “Look, college isn’t for everyone.”
“To me, college is an endurance test,” he continues. “You put up with four or five years of crap just for someone to hand you a piece of paper that says you have some sense. Hey, news flash for all you people: I got sense without the paper! And I didn’t have to endure four or five years of crap for someone to tell me I’m smart!”
Robertson did attend college briefly, at Louisiana Tech, because his parents insisted.
“While my older brothers were at Louisiana Tech to actually get an education, I went there for three quarters and did nothing but party for two of them,” he writes. “I rarely went to class because I didn’t have much interest in getting a college education. My partner in crime was Miss Kay‘s cousin Charles Hollier. We called him Tinker Bell, and he was flunking out of school, too. We pretty much had our own fraternity, Kappa Tappa Kegga … It didn’t take me long to figure out there was always a party somewhere at college if you looked for it, and I usually took the time to find one!”
Robertson dropped out before the school year was through, and the rest is reality TV history.
