- During a recent press conference in front of Hoover Tower, Stanford University President John L. Hennessy explained why he refused to accept an $85M donation.
"After reviewing all the necessary details and conducting a thorough cost-benefit analysis, I have decided it is in the best interest of this dignified institution to reject the proposed donation."
The angry entrepreneur who offered the donation is Randolph McDougahinkey, a Bay Area Real Estate magnate.

President Hennessy further commented, "As he sat across from me and proceeded to sign his $85M check, I asked him what he needed in return for his generous contribution. He requested that I change the name of our Cafeteria to, 'The Randolph McDougahinkey Culinary Emporium."

"I then requested that he leave my office, and never return again to this noble institution."
