College newspapers are (still) funny

In the “Oxymoronic Idealism” section today, “600 fast for hunger relief.” I never thought of not-eating as an effective means of relieving hunger, but I guess I’m not a college student who enjoys pointless acts intended to raise awareness. I’m more the type who’d like to DO something about my hunger, so I typically just pop down to the vend-o-mat and grab a candy bar & a soda.

In the “You tattooed your WHAT!?” department: “Students getting tattooed on the rise.” I can only assume that the word “rise” is a newfangled slang reference to a body part, since I don’t know of any areas of campus referred to by that term – though I imagine The Knoll comes close. Then too, I’ve never seen any tattooing going on there.

If I had more time, I’d actually open the paper and find more craziness to document. Regretfully, I have to get this report written for my 9:05 class tomorrow morning. (Yes, they offer a semester-long class on the subject of 9:05. Really!)
