No bread and circuses! But maybe an ice cream social?

November 15th, 2007 · 162 comments

“Our CA (community advisor) posted this friendly note on our bathroom door,” says our submitter, a college student in Milwaukee.

The dorm residents — apparently a libertarian-minded bunch — were pissed about frequent CAD (common area damage) charges for putting recyclables in the trash instead of the mandatory recycling bin. They took a break from ranking up Ron Paul stories on Reddit and Digg to add their two cents here.

hey guys!

    Team ice cream socials.

    That is their only true family-oriented suggestion.

    As for the handwriting, it could have been a group effort with one person writing. I certainly have done the writing for many group efforts akin to this one.

    This proves what most college kids feel about dorm life: it’s extremely overbearing. Stop wasting money on “programs” and leave the damn students alone – they are adults, after all.

    I stand by my earlier statement that no one wants an ice cream social. They are in Milwaukee, it is too cold for ice cream. One of the brighter monkeys simply picked a more subtle way to be a “dike” wad. (unless of course by “Ice cream social” they mean Grasshoppers and Butterscotch schnapps over Vanilla ice cream. Anyone answering in earnest is going to request booze not dairy products.)

    It’s pretty funny – I have a friend in Northern Michigan who is about 2 hours north of me, latitudinally speaking. So whenever I see her online I always ask her, “How’s the weather up there?” It never fails to freak her out – she cannot get her head around it!

    “Get bent”? Are the 90s back? From the look of the individual letters in words, I think one and two were written by the same person; also, it sounds like a phrase (“Fuck no! Get BENT.”).

    The others seem to be individuals, except maybe 7 and 8.

    In other news, I saw a great note in the drive through at Dairy Queen today, it was typed up with a clip art of a person on a cell phone:

    “Cell phone usage interferes with the production of ice cream.” CLASSIC!

    Wow, what a convoluted sentence. Oh, well – figure it out. :P

    CB – re:#109…you do know that $1 = $0.98 is a bigger spread than the 1.7 cents that Wade posted….right? So, they’re actually getting farther apart and not closer together? Just checking. ;)
