Official documents

I picked up my diploma today. Now I have a fancy piece of paper labelling me a master of science. Should it join my other fancy piece of paper labelling me a bachelor (in a closet), or be displayed?

Amusingly enough, I also received a letter from the department congratulating me... on receiving my Ph.D. (That was so easy! And fast!) The letter accompanied a nice metal Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto business card holder, which I first thought was a cigarette case. I wonder if it will set off metal detectors at the airport.

This post's theme comic illustrates the research degree hierarchy: MSc < PhD < black belt.
