Just Dumb (“J.D.” backronym)

The Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree for lawyers is sometimes given the backronym (back acronym) of “Just Dumb.” “JD = just dumb” was posted on the newsgroup ba.broadcast on November 1, 1996.
The LL.M. degree (Master of Laws) is sometimes given the backronym of “Lawyer Losing Money.”
Wikipedia: Juris Doctor
The Juris Doctor degree (J.D. or JD), also known as the Doctor of Jurisprudence degree (J.D., JD, D.Jur. or DJur), is a graduate-entry professional degree in law and one of several Doctor of Law degrees. The Juris Doctor is earned by completing law school in Australia, Canada, the United States, and some other common law countries. It has the academic standing of a professional doctorate (in contrast to a research doctorate) in the United States, a master’s degree in Australia, and a second-entry, baccalaureate degree in Canada (in all three jurisdictions the same as other professional degrees such as M.D. or D.D.S./D.M.D., the degrees required to be a practicing physician or dentist, respectively).

Your Medical degree? Biology degree? Liberal arts degree? Perhaps a JD (just dumb) degree which Fordham sould rebuke.
