    Going on your posting history can you not just say it took you 5 years to do an undergraduate degree?
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    - Dog ate your graduate degree.
    - MF sat on your dog.
    - You forgot who you worked for.
    - You bent over worked for MF and you don't want to put it on your CV.

    If you have a relation who is a window cleaner or something like that it would work as long as they are happy to give you a reference with no dates.
