SAN DIEGO STATE UNIVERSITY SUSPENDS ANIMAL HOUSES

Was there any studying going on here? In a move to sort out the aftermath of nearly 100 students getting busted for drugs, San Diego State University has suspended fraternities on their campus pending investigation and review. Certainly going to college is suppossed to prepare you for a future career, but this is not what academia had in mind. The animal houses have apparently degenerated into the crack houses. This takes toga parties to a whole new level.

 MAN ARRESTED FOR SINGING AGAINST GAS PRICES

Jay Weinberg climbed atop a convenience store in Valparaiso, Indiana and gave a quick concert. His song, called “Price Gougin’,” was to protest the high gas prices. He had about 20 people standing around listening and a few at the pumps singing along when the police arrived to arrest him for trespassing and disorderly conduct. OK, first, how do you trespass at a public business? Second, I thought protest singers were a tradition in this country. You know, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie. I think he should book a tour of gas stations everywhere. Go on the road. But then I suppose the gas would cost too much. If he turned it into a video though it could be a Youtube/Myspace hit.

SERIAL BUTT PINCHER ON THE LOOSE

Here’s one for the books. According to reports, there is a serial butt pincher on the loose in Manchester, England. Local police are trying to put the pinch on him. He is described as a Greek/Turkish looking man and has pinched 19 women so far all ranging from 13-43 years of age. He apparently appreciates variety in his pinching. The victims say it puts them in a very uncomfortable position and want the pincher caught. Is this actually illegal?

NCAA CRACKS DOWN ON STUPIDITY

The NCAA has decided to penalize 53 Division 1 sports programs for poor academic performance in their players. Wow, they actually expect these guys to learn something? A total of 218 teams at 123 schools have been cited. This covers Football and Basketball, including Orange Bowl Champion Kansas. It seems they were recruiting for athletics, not brains. Go figure.

WORLD’S OLDEST PHOTOGRAPH

This may be the world’s oldest photograph. It is set to be sold at Sotheby’s and it is unknown how much money this might bring in. It is from around 1800. They are about to run a test on it to try and get a more precise date for its origin. It was made by laying a leaf on a light sensitive silver nitrate plate and then exposing it. It’s sort of like how people now sit their butts on a Xerox machine at office parties.

    We’ve tried praying and now singing. Before you get through 1 verse the gas price would increase. A local Exxon Station just put a cardboard sign on their price display and it said “Whatever”.
