WHY DO CELEBS RECIEVE HONORARY DEGREES/DOCTORATES?

I don't get it.  Jimmy Kimmel lightheartedly speaks of receiving a doctorate, never having graduated at all.  I worked my old ass off for my degree, nothing to laugh about.

They get a doctorate, but its not on the same level as someone who actually got one.

It's a marketing ploy for schools to align themselves with celebrities.

Because the world rewards celebrities with stuff that they did not earn every day.

That makes sense, of course.  It just sort of annoys me =0)

They've succeeded beyond what most PhDs will anyway in society, truthfully. I guess it's good marketing for the schools? I've never heard of it before, but then again I was born without the part of my brain that made me at all interested in celebrities.
