30 Rock Lambasts Crimson False Modesty

Famously, Harvard's noblesse oblige dictates that alumni cannot name-drop their own institution's name, and must thusly pepper speech with annoying euphemisms like, "I went to school in Boston." Tufer is a TGS staff writer who is stereotypically falsely modest and wants to desperately let everyone know that he attended Harvard. This 30 rock episode had not one but TWO occasions in which they lambast Crimson false modesty and sense of superiority.

Take 1
Take 2

If I were a betting woman, I'd guess a Tufts writer is on staff at 30 Rock.
