If you don't have a great job like 50 Cent's toddler, paying for college can be really tough. The rest of us have to get pretty sneaky to buy those very valuable English bachelor degrees, by filing for bankruptcy or selling our organs. Two totally straight bros* came up with a better idea: marrying each other.

Actual research not to be confused with fake research.

Here is their text exchange planning the whole escapade:

When a sum as little as $30 is an issue, pretending to be gay isn't.

Both dudes are immediately on board. It's really touching that the gay community has come so far that straight men can improve their lives by coming out of the closet.

"Dude I'm so excited" lol

They've edited out some of the details of their frenzied planning, but you can get the gist: be gay for pay.
