NSFW – An Excerpt from Cosmo

When Samantha’s boss asks her to cover a series of robberies in downtown Seattle,… Keep Reading

Reaction to South Oval from a North Campus Student

Once, the legend would start, there was this beautiful space on South Campus. It was even farther south than the Oval, but it was much more wondrous, a deep green valley of Frisbee throwers and between-class sun-tanners. It seemed the home of elves, not the cookie box kind but the tall, elegant Tolkien elves. The music appeared to strum from the tree branches themselves, reverberating in the roots underneath your feet in an effort to encircle you in the hum.… Keep Reading

Pisces- You will be inspired… Keep Reading

A Summation and Critique of Argo – By Archibald James of Essex – Royal Cinema Taster

My Lord, I have just seen a film of utter Contradiction. It is a film worthy of the Highest Court in many Respects, but tawdry and unfit in so many others. Argo directed and starring Benjamin from the House of Affleck. He is a master of the screen in the same manner that My Lord is in the realm of Politics. Benjamin of Affleck portrays an agent of Espionage tasked with that most unenviable of missions—Extraction. Persian heathens have ransacked… Keep Reading

Getting Some Tail: A New Guide to Flirtation

Humans are very interesting creatures. We are highly resourceful, capable of great feats of the mind, enduring, adaptable, admirable, and then there’s that whole having opposable thumbs thing. Yet, for all our great achievements, we must concede that in one area we are hopelessly, shamefully inept: mating. While remarkable in our use of heightened forms of communication, these very same verbal skills have limited our ability to get what we truly desire (“some”). Thus society has doomed itself to struggle… Keep Reading

Horror Games, Spicy Food, and The Fall of Mankind

As I sit alone in my dorm’s study room every night I am contributing to the destruction of the world. Every girly scream that comes out of my weakling mouth is another step towards a horrible fate for mankind. I believe it was Shakespeare that first said “this bitch needs more context.” It was Saturday night, September 7th 2013, and as an introvert I was excited for some free time. No Jazz band, no English papers, no Physics Homework, no… Keep Reading

NEW RESEARCH: Fake News Comedy Pieces are “Total Babyplay Kiddie Shit”

(Columbus, Ohio)  The Ohio State University, long known to be a nexus of brilliant and original thought, passionate and innovative thinkers, groundbreaking research, and FOOTBALLFOOTBALLFOOTBALL, has once again uncovered evidence of something so shock-boggling that it could very well alter the entire landscape of written comedy as we know it: Evidence has been found that parody news articles are the lowest form of comedy. Spearheading the spear of finding-out for this fact was one strikingly handsome student researcher named Ryan… Keep Reading

Why I Don’t Enjoy “Icebreakers”

Anyone that has ever gone to college can probably remember how they felt after doing their first “icebreaker”. I don’t just remember how I felt; I remember when I felt it and what was going on. Now you get to hear (err, read) about it! After we sat down everyone just kind of looked at each other. Really, it was so damn quiet I could hear myself breathing through my nose. I was kind of hoping that someone would do… Keep Reading

Tales From a Childhood: My Ghost Dog

For my dead dog, who is dead. Ratchet was part of the family and we all loved him, but there’s no denying he was the dumbest dog around. It eventually got him killed. He died running into the street to catch a squirrel, but when the squirrel went up a tree on the other side, he just stopped, stood there, and got hit by a truck…a full minute later. The truck was making a bunch of noise, but he was… Keep Reading
