One of my professors has assigned every single thing he's ever written, everything he's contributed to, and even a private email correspondence between him and a politician on the subject of our course. He then spent nearly the entire class talking about his idyllic childhood, the arguments of all his books, how his books were received (badly), why his critics are totally wrong, how unjust it was that he did not win an award for which he was nominated, how the person who did win did not deserve it, and so on. Then, while contemplating what to remove from the syllabus, he came to a week in which all the assigned reading was written by him, paused, and said, "Well, no, we can't get rid of that. What would I get out of the class then?"
On top of that, it turns out you have to pay money to switch courses.
