Internet Spam Bots Are Repeating The Same Villanova Joke

By rule, a twitter account that has no followers and follows no one despite tweeting a bunch of times is generally a spam bot. The past few days, the same joke about Villanova has been regurgitated dozens of times and picked up on my tweetdeck filter. I've heard similar jokes, Villanova is usually not the target though, and there must be something to be gained by having dozens of spam bots repeat the same line. Search twitter for "Villanova graduate IQ", it's mind-boggling how many of these things there are.
