We at the paper and the internet are self-aware enough to know that our primary reason for existing is not to provide a legitimate outlet for investigative journalism. We are here mostly to serve up sophomoric scat jokes to a small readership of overprivileged university students and, to a somewhat lesser extent, continuously antagonize the administration of a not terribly well-known private college in the northeast.
