Yes, this is from a college campus.

Okay, crazy cat lovers — enough. Let’s get back to a topic we can all agree on, like, say, how some people are OMG soooo dumb. (Lawls all around!) For example, Jeremy claims the colorful banner to the left was posted by an R.A. at a dorm on his California college campus.

      I bet that Chesire Cat isn’t allowed outside. It would explain why he doesn’t have enough world experience to contribute something funnier and also would explain why he can’t spell “Cheshire”. Keep smiling, it won’t make you invisible.

    To be fair, for some reason writing in gigantic letters does tend to induce dyslexia. I once wrote ‘LUNGUO SAVES’ on a sign to take to a hockey game. But the thing is, I noticed as soon as I finished writing it, and rewrote it on the other side. How do you look at an English word that has any letter other than ‘u’ after a ‘q’ and not think something is wrong?

    1. The enforcers: oh yes indeedy there will not be any pot smoking, beer guzzling, or illicit sex going on in my area and we will very much so have team building parties and decorating committees cuz this job is going in my resume dammit!

    2. The lad backers: unless the marijuana smoke miasma is affecting the visibility of the hallway to less than 2 centimeters in front of you , I ain’t even gonna get off my couch. The enforcement is limited to him shouting “keep it down in there man!” when sexual moaning can be heard all the way across campus to the admin building (2 miles away)

    So why is it called a quarter anyway? According to my research each academic term is about 10 weeks long. That makes it about a fifth not a quarter.

    And the the best at what? Drinking and fornicating? Or is there some vain hope that the readers of said poster will be inspired and actually do some studying…

    Any why is it called recess? I thought a recess was an alcove.

      Watch me be totally boring! It is called recess because the word “Recess” comes from the Latin recessus which means to retreat or recede. So the alcove type recess is set back from the rest of a room space and the playtime type recess is a retreat from the labors of study.

      “Let the dogs roam free”. Sounds like a euphemism for not wearing underpants.

      Yet more evidence that Europeans shouldn’t watch American football?

      He’s the Quarterback because he’s closer to the line of scrimmage than the Halfback and the Fullback in the I-formation.

      Also, in football parlance, Split Ends have nothing to do with the condition of their hair…before you ask. :-P

      I can’t say what academic terms are today, when I was a student we attended classes from mid-September through mid-December and from mid-January through late-May…considerably more than 10 weeks on both counts.

      Um, maybe it’s because I go to school that uses the quarter system, but I find that question extremely stupid. Of course “quarter” refers to the quarter of a SCHOOL year — not an ACTUAL year. So there are FOUR ten-week periods in a school that goes on a quarter system. It means classes are harder because they’re much faster and more dense. But we can also get a chance at more classes. If we had school all year around (including summer), then sure, it would be a fifth and not a quarter. but summer school is done a little differently. -.-

      And just to be absolutely clear: no, schools on semester systems DONT have 26 week long terms either. -.-

    It reminds me of my school (Few colleges go in quarters, so it very well could be)

      There is No. Way. either of those signs was made at an “Art Institute” (or that alone would be noteworthy).
      I wish they were! There, at least the stupid looks pretty.

      Or they don’t want to spend huuuuggggeeee $$$ on making a properly printed good banner. Trust me, banners of that quality have hung in my AI’s student lounge. (The first AI school, AiP)
      (Coulda been done by photo or culinary students, too. I can’t draw worth crap, but I can point a camera and take a good photo)

      I still call Art School BS. I understand not wanting to spend big $$$ on a properly printed banner, but they couldn’t get a scenic arts or graphic design student to do it? Why were they having the culinary kids make banners? Shouldn’t they be making snacks? The photo kids should be taking pictures and leave the sponge brushes and paint pots to those who know how to use them!

    but getting that close to my computer screen makes my eyes cross.

    I think it’s cruel that they confine their RA’s to one dorm and never let them outside. They’re meant to roam free and kill rodents!

    Yeah, but you’re all forgetting in the new world of “progressive” education, we can all spell every word in whatever way affirms our self esteem or some other such nonsense.

    That, and schools are more focused in teaching kids about liberal pet political causes than they are about teaching math, reading, or any other substantive curriculum.

    Who cares if little Sarah’s illiterate when she goes to college? As long as she votes for Democrats, she’s just fine! /sarcasm

      Really? You really want to politicize this? Because I’m pretty sure we can find some conservatives who have had a bit of trouble spelling in the past.

      OR… someone just made a spelling mistake and it has nothing to do with politics. i mean seriously. someone made a spelling mistake: Big. Fucking. Deal. It’s pretty funny, yeah. Does it make anything written in your post true? No. I’m surprised how some people can make every little thing into a stupid political debate. Do you really have nothing better than to fight off illusionary strawmen? Do you??

    I find myself actually compelled to comment. Mostly because I’m both horrified and amused that both sign writers are WRONG. The first one with their spelling “skillz”, and the second one with their grasp of grammar.

    If I was the first sign writer I’d write a third sign reading: “Well at least I only made one mistake, instead of four, on my sign.”

    At any rate, it makes me worry. I feel like their English professors should use these as learning tools.

      Actually, your third sign should really read as follows: “Well, at least I only made one mistake on my sign, instead of four mistakes.”

    I get something similar from this one woman I had to send out mass emails too for a business purpose. I would get them back saying something like “I am out of the office blah blah blah” must be annoying that anytime someone emails her and she is not there they get that back as a reply.

    HAHAHA, this is the college where I got my B.A. I recognize the dorms, and I’m pretty sure my apt. was the one on the ground floor there. This was also the place where one of my R.A.s thought it’d be a smart idea to let some gang members from Richmond know that he was the “authority” in those parts, and that they better do what he said. He got knocked the eff out.
