Weird Scholarships

Yesterday,  a midget hired me.

(Must I continue?)

OK, here’s the rest of the story – it’s a “short story.”  (Warning – awful jokes to follow  – govern yourself accordingly.)

The mom, who’s not a midget, told me that her daughter is a “legal” midget, and wondered if there were any scholarships for her.

Of course, my question was, “What’s an ILLEGAL midget?” (Someone who lies about their height?)

But my answer was, “Enough ‘small talk,’ yes, there are scholarships for many categories of people.”

Here’s a great (not too short) list.
