Subj: College Dorm Pranks (S521b)
From: LABLaughsClean on 1/12/07
When I lived in a dorm, one of
the favorite intramural sports
was water fights. Dousing and bombarding one another with
water from squirt guns, glasses, balloons, even wastebaskets.
Since each room had a sink, there was endless ammunition.
The most frequent target was the Resident Assistant.
Approaching his room one afternoon,
he noticed his door was
ajar. Looking up, he saw a pail of water balanced on the
door's edge, ready to fall on him. As he took down the
pail and emptied it into his sink, he thought, "Those crazy
guys actually thought they could fool me with that old gag!"
It was then he realized it......
we'd removed the drainpipe
beneath the sink.
Subj: Do You Know Who I Am? (S226, S655b)
From: thebartend on 5/31/2001
(Also see "Student Vs Professor" in College-Prof.)
It was the final examination
for an introductory English
course at the local university. Like many such freshman
courses, it was designed to weed out new students, having
over 700 students in the class!
The examination was two hours
long, and exam booklets were
provided. The professor was very strict and told the class
that any exam that was not on his desk in exactly two hours
would not be accepted and the student would fail. 1/2 hour
into the exam, a student came rushing in and asked the pro-
fessor for an exam booklet. "You're not going to have time
to finish this," the professor stated sarcastically as he
handed the student a booklet. "Yes I will," replied the
student. He then took a seat and began writing.
After two hours, the professor
called for the exams, and the
students filed up and handed them in. All except the late
student, who continued writing. 1/2 hour later, the last
student came up to the professor who was sitting at his desk
preparing for his next class.
He attempted to put his exam
on the stack of exam booklets
"No you don't, I'm not going
to accept that. It's late."
The student looked incredulous and angry. "Do you know WHO
I am?" "No, as a matter of fact I don't," replied the pro-
fessor with an air of sarcasm in his voice.
"DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?" the student
asked again. "No, and
I don't care." replied the professor with an air of
"Good," replied the student,
who quickly lifted the stack
of completed exams, stuffed his in the middle, and walked
out of the room.

Mr. Perkins, the biology instructor
at a posh suburban girl's
junior college, said during class, "Miss Smythe, would you
please name the organ of the human body, which under the
appropriate conditions, expands to six times its normal size,
and define the conditions."
Miss Smythe gasped, then said
freezingly, "Mr. Perkins, I
don't think that is a proper question to ask me. I assure
you my parents will hear of this." With that she sat down

on Miss Johnson and asked
the same question. Miss Johnson, with composure, replied,

"One, you have not studied your lesson. "Two, you have a
dirty mind. "And three, you will some day be faced with

Just in case you weren't feeling
old enough today, this
will certainly change things. Each year the staff at
Beloit College in Wisconsin puts together a list to try
to give the Faculty a sense of the mindset of this year's
Here is this year's list:
The people who are starting college
this fall across the
nation were born in 1983.
They have no meaningful recollection
of the Reagan Era
and probably did not know he had ever been shot.
They were prepubescent when the Persian Gulf War was waged.
There has been only one Pope in their lifetime.
They were 10 when the Soviet
Union broke apart and
do not remember the Cold War.
They are too young to remember
the Challenger space
shuttle blowing up.
Tiananmen Square means nothing to them.
Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.
Atari predates them, as do vinyl albums.
The statement "You sound like
a broken record"
means nothing to them.
They have never owned a record player.
They have likely never played
Pac Man and
have never heard of Pong.
They may have never heard of
an 8 track. The Compact
Disc was introduced when they were 1 year old.
They have always had an answering machine.
Most have never seen a TV set
with only 13 channels,
nor have they seen a black and white TV.
They have always had cable.
There have always been VCRs,
they have no idea what BETA was.
They cannot fathom not having a remote control.
They don't know what a cloth
baby diaper is, or know
about the "Help me, I've fallen and I can't get up"
Feeling old Yet? There's more:
They were born the year that Walkmen were introduced by Sony.
Roller skating has always meant inline for them.
Michael Jackson has always been white.
Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.
They have no idea when or why Jordache jeans were cool.
Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.
They have never seen Larry Bird play.
They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.
The Vietnam War is as ancient
history to them
as W.W.I, W.W.II and the Civil War.
They have no idea that Americans
were ever held hostage
They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are.
They don't know who Mork was
or where he was from.
(The correct answer, by the way, is Ork)
They never heard: "Where's the
beef?", "I'd walk a mile
for a Camel," or "De plane, de plane!"
They do not care who shot J.R.
and have no idea
who J.R. was.
Kansas, Chicago, Boston, America,
and Alabama are places,
There has always been MTV.
They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.
Do you feel old yet? If
you do, then pass this on to
some other 20 old fogies... but don't send it back to me,
I feel old enough.

Subj: Cakes And Ale During Exams (S154)
From: KMacinty on 01/13/2000
This is purported to be a true
story someone found regarding
exams at Cambridge University. It seems that during an
examination, a bright young student popped up and asked the
proctor to bring him Cakes and Ale. The following dialog
Proctor: I beg your pardon?
Student: Sir, I request that you bring me Cakes and Ale.
Proctor: Sorry, no.
Student: Sir, I really must insist.
I request and require
that you bring me Cakes and Ale.
At this point, the student produced
a copy of the four-
hundred-year-old Laws of Cambridge, written in Latin and
still nominally in effect, and pointed to the section which
read (roughly translated): "Gentlemen sitting examinations
may request and require Cakes and Ale." Pepsi and hamburgers
were judged the modern equivalent, and the student sat there,
writing his examination and happily slurping away.
Three weeks later, the student
was fined five pounds for not
wearing a sword to the examination.
Subj: Artie Schmitz's Guide To Studying In College (S137)
From: JOKE-OF-THE-DAY.com on 9/1/99
Artie Schmitz attended Harvard
for a year before professors
realized he wasn't enrolled in the school. Since then, he
has transferred from one college to another. Currently, he
is an eighth-year junior at Florida's renowned Dade County
Community College. From there he writes to us, giving fuzzy,
unsound advice on how to succeed in college if you absolutely
don't want to succeed. So, here it goes:
1. The secret to taking good
notes is taking them from
someone who goes to class.
2. Cliff Notes do not give you the same experience of
reading the book, which is why you should read
3. Cheaters never win, but if they copy from the right
people they could tie with the best.
4. Just because they call them Work/Study Jobs, doesn't
mean you have to do either one.
5. Never wait to the last minute to start a paper - get
6. If you're going to cram the night before the test,
make sure you cram everything onto a piece of paper
you can fit into your sleeve.
7. Never judge a book by its cover. Save your opinion
until you read the back of the book.
8. In case you need an excuse for missing an important
exam, explain that you didn't know about the, "Beer
before liquor," rule.
9. On essay questions, write long and sloppy. Professors
have many papers to grade, and tons of jibberish will
always get a passing grade.
10. Don't be concerned about failing. The only people
concerned about your GPA are employers.

Subj: Speech By Charlton Heston at Harvard (S112)
From: Tom_Adams on 3/15/99
"Winning The Cultural War" by
Harvard Law School Forum on Tuesday, 16 February 1999
I remember my son when he was
five, explaining to his
kindergarten class what his father did for a living.
"My Daddy," he said, "pretends to be people."
There have been quite a few of
them. Prophets from the
Old and New Testaments, a couple of Christian saints,
generals of various nationalities and different centuries,
several kings, three American presidents, a French cardinal
and two geniuses, including Michelangelo. If you want the
ceiling re-painted I'll do my best. There always seem
to be a lot of different fellows up here. I'm never sure
which one of them gets to talk. Right now, I guess I'm the
As I pondered our visit tonight
it struck me: If my Creator
gave me the gift to connect you with the hearts and minds of
those great men, then I want to use that same gift now to
re-connect you with your own sense of liberty ... your own
freedom of thought ... your own compass for what is right.
Dedicating the memorial at Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln said
of America, "We are now engaged in a great Civil War, testing
whether this nation or any nation so conceived and so
dedicated can long endure."
Those words are true again.
I believe that we are again
engaged in a great civil war, a cultural war that's about to
hijack your birthright to think and say what resides in your
heart. I fear you no longer trust the pulsing lifeblood of
liberty inside you ... the stuff that made this country rise
from wilderness into the miracle that it is.
Let me back up. About a
year ago I became president of the
National Rifle Association, which protects the right to keep
and bear arms. I ran for office, I was elected, and now I
serve ... I serve as a moving target for the media who've
called me everything from "ridiculous" and "duped" to a
"brain-injured, senile, crazy old man." I know ... I'm
pretty old...but I sure Lord ain't senile.
As I have stood in the crosshairs
of those who target
Second Amendment freedoms, I've realized that firearms are
not the only issues. No, it's much, much bigger than that.
I've come to understand that a cultural war is raging across
our Land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain
acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated.
For example, I marched for civil
rights with Dr. King in
1963 --Long before Hollywood found it fashionable. But
when I told an audience last year that white pride is just
as valid as black pride or red pride or anyone else's pride,
they called me a racist. I've worked with brilliantly
talented homosexuals all my life. But when I told an
audience that gay rights should extend no further than your
rights or my rights, I was called a homophobe. I served in
World War II against the Axis powers. But during a speech,
when I drew an analogy between singling out innocent Jews
and singling out innocent gun owners, I was called an anti-
Everyone I know knows I would
never raise a closed fist
against my country. But when I asked an audience to oppose
this cultural persecution, I was compared to Timothy McVeigh.
From Time magazine to friends
and colleagues, they're
essentially saying, "Chuck, how dare you speak your mind.
You are using language not authorized for public consumption!"
But I am not afraid. If
Americans believed in political
correctness, we'd still be King George's boys-subjects bound
to the British crown. In his book, "The End of Sanity,"
Martin Gross writes that "Blatantly irrational behavior is
rapidly being established as the norm in almost every area
of human endeavor. There seem to be new customs, new rules,
and new anti-intellectual theories regularly foisted on us
from every direction. Underneath, the nation is roiling.
Americans know something without a name is undermining the
nation, turning the mind mushy when it comes to separating
truth from falsehood and right from wrong. And they don't
Let me read a few examples.
At Antioch college in Ohio, young
men seeking intimacy with
a coed must get verbal permission at each step of the
process from kissing to petting to final copulation ... all
clearly spelled out in a printed college directive.
In New Jersey, despite the death
of several patients
nationwide who had been infected by dentists who had
concealed their AIDs --- the state commissioner announced
that health providers who are HIV-positive need not... need
not... tell their patients that they are infected.
At William and Mary, students
tried to change the name of
the school team "The Tribe" because it was supposedly
insulting to local Indians, only to learn that authentic
Virginia chiefs truly like the name.
In San Francisco, city fathers
passed an ordinance protecting
the rights of transvestites to cross-dress on the job, and
for transsexuals to have separate toilet facilities while
undergoing sex change surgery.
In New York City, kids who don't
speak a word of Spanish
have been placed in bilingual classes to learn their three
R's in Spanish solely because their last names sound Hispanic.
At the University of Pennsylvania,
in a state where thousands
died at Gettysburg opposing slavery, the president of that
college officially set up segregated dormitory space for
Yeah, I know ... that's out of
bounds now. Dr. King said
"Negroes." Jimmy Baldwin and most of us on the March said,
"black." But it's a no-no now. For me, hyphenated
identities are awkward ... particularly "Native-American."
I'm a Native American, for God's sake. I also happen to
be a blood-initiated brother of the Miniconjou Sioux. On
my wife's side, my grandson is a thirteenth generation
native American... with a capital letter on "American."
Finally, just last month... David
Howard, head of the
Washington D.C. Office of Public Advocate, used the word
"niggardly" while talking to colleagues about budgetary
matters. Of course, "niggardly" means stingy or scanty.
But within days Howard was forced to publicly apologize
and resign. As columnist Tony Snow wrote: "David Howard
got fired because some people in public employ were
morons who (a) didn't know the meaning of niggardly,' (b)
didn't know how to use a dictionary to discover the
meaning, and (c) actually demanded that he apologize for
What does all of this mean?
It means that telling us
what to think has evolved into telling us what to say,
so telling us what to do can't be far behind. Before
you claim to be a champion of free thought, tell me:
Why did political correctness originate on America's
campuses? And why do you continue to tolerate it? Why
do you, who're supposed to debate ideas, surrender to
their suppression? Let's be honest. Who here thinks
your professors can say what they really believe? It
scares me to death, and should scare you too, that the
superstition of political correctness rules the halls
You are the best and the brightest.
You, here in the
fertile cradle of American academia, here in the castle
of learning on the Charles River, you are the cream.
But I submit that you, and your counterparts across
the land, are the most socially conformed and politically
silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as
you validate that... and abide it... you are - by your
grandfathers' standards - cowards.
Here's another example.
Right now at more than one major
university, Second Amendment scholars and researchers are
being told to shut up about their findings or they'll
lose their jobs. Why? Because their research findings
would undermine big-city mayor's pending lawsuits that
seek to extort hundreds of millions of dollars from
firearm manufacturers. I don't care what you think about
guns. But if you are not shocked at that, I am shocked at
you. Who will guard the raw material of unfettered ideas,
if not you? Who will defend the core value of academia,
if you supposed soldiers of free thought and expression
lay down your arms and plead, "Don't shoot me."?
If you talk about race, it does
not make you a racist. If
you see distinctions between the genders, it does not make
you a sexist. If you think critically about a denomination,
it does not make you anti-religion. If you accept but don't
celebrate homosexuality, it does not make you a homophobe.
Don't let America's universities continue to serve as
incubators for this rampant epidemic of new McCarthyism.
But what can you do? How can
anyone prevail against such
pervasive social subjugation? The answer's been here all
along. I learned it 36 years ago, on the steps of the
Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., standing with Dr.
Martin Luther King and two hundred thousand people.
You simply ... disobey.
Peaceably, yes. Respectfully, of
course. Nonviolently, absolutely. But when told how to
think or what to say or howto behave, we don't. We
disobey social protocol that stifles and stigmatizes
personal freedom. I learned the awesome power of
disobedience from Dr. King... who learned it from Gandhi,
and Thoreau, and Jesus, and every other great man who
led those in the right against those with the might.
Disobedience is in our DNA. We feel innate kinship with
that Disobedient spirit that tossed tea into Boston Harbor,
that sent Thoreau to jail, that refused to sit in the
back of the bus, that protested a war in Vietnam. In that
same spirit, I am asking you to disavow cultural correct-
ness with massive disobedience of rogue authority, social
directives and onerous law that weaken personal freedom.
But be careful ... it hurts.
Disobedience demands that you
put yourself at risk. Dr. King stood on lots of balconies.
You must be willing to be humiliated... to endure the
modern-day equivalent of the police dogs at Montgomery and
the water cannons at Selma. You must be willing to
experience discomfort. I'm not complaining, but my own
decades of social activism have taken their toll on me.
Let me tell you a story.
A few years back I heard about
a rapper named Ice-T who was selling a CD called "Cop
Killer" celebrating ambushing and murdering police
officers. It was being marketed by none other than
Time/Warner, the biggest entertainment conglomerate
in the world. Police across the country were outraged.
Rightfully so - at least one had been murdered. But
Time/Warner was stonewalling because the CD was a cash
cow for them, and the media were tiptoeing around it
because the rapper was black. I heard Time/Warner had
a stockholders meeting scheduled in Beverly Hills. I
owned some shares at the time, so I decided to attend.
What I did there was against the advice of my family and
colleagues I asked for the floor. To a hushed room of a
thousand average American stockholders, I simply read
the full lyrics of "Cop Killer" - every vicious, vulgar,
"I GOT MY 12 GAUGE SAWED OFF
I GOT MY HEADLIGHTS TURNED OFF
I'M ABOUT TO BUST SOME SHOTS OFF
I'M ABOUT TO DUST SOME COPS OFF..."
It got worse, a lot worse.
I won't read the rest of it
to you. But trust me, the room was a sea of shocked,
frozen, blanched faces. The Time/Warner executives
squirmed in their chairs and stared at their shoes. They
hated me for that. Then I delivered another volley of
sick lyric brimming with racist filth, where Ice-T
fantasizes about sodomizing two 12-year old nieces of
Al and Tipper Gore. "SHE PUSHED HER BUTT AGAINST MY ... ."
Well, I won't do to you here
what I did to them. Let's
just say I left the room in echoing silence. When I read
the lyrics to the waiting press corps, one of them said
"We can't print that." "I know," I replied, "but
Time/Warner's selling it." Two months later, Time/Warner
terminated Ice-T's contract. I'll never be offered
another film by Warners, or get a good review from Time
magazine. But disobedience means you must be willing to
act, not just talk.
When a mugger sues his elderly
victim for defending
herself... jam the switchboard of the district attorney's
office. When your university is pressured to lower
standards until 80% of the students graduate with honors...
choke the halls of the board of regents. When an 8-year-
old boy pecks a girl's cheek on the playground and gets
hauled into court for sexual harassment... march on that
school and block its doorways.
When someone you elected is seduced
by political power and
betrays you... petition them, oust them, banish them.
When Time magazine's cover portrays millennium nuts as
deranged, Crazy Christians holding a cross as it did last
month... boycott their magazine and the products it
So that this nation may long
endure, I urge you to follow
in the hallowed footsteps of the great disobedience's of
history that freed exiles, founded religions, defeated
tyrants, and yes, in the hands of an aroused rabble in
arms and a few great men, by God's grace, built this
country. If Dr. King were here, I think he would agree.
