What Would Jesus Steal?

Jesus doesn't steal Poptarts. NEITHER SHOULD YOU...

Jesus didn't steal hot wings & Pizza rolls Neither should you!! JJ + Destiny

This classroom is covered by the blood of Jesus. You deal with Him when you steal from children!

(Thanks to Sarah at Greenville College (a Christian school in Illinois) and  James in Beaumont, Texas for their submissions.)

The Post-it Wars

After receiving numerous “helpful tips” from her roommate at the University of Minnesota…

Tips for keeping counters clean!

TIP: If you use the sponge, squeeze it out and put it on the side of the sink. It will last longer and not get stinky! Thanks

DISH ETIQUETTE:  1) Please soak pots & pans IMMEDIATELY after use.  2) Put dishes in dishwasher right after washing them out.   3) Place cleaned cookware on a towel next to the sink.  4) Rinse dishes right after use.  5) Be considerate!

…Lydia decided to add a few “tips” of her own. (The large signs on the oven and the microwave were already there.)

Says Dave in New York City: “I love that this note contains a fairly detailed explanation of Lord Kelvin’s formulation of the second law of thermodynamics….and a helpful diagram!”

ATTENTION: Please do not run the a/c with the window open.

This girl is like the archetypal freshman roommate, no?

I'm sick & tired of leaving nice little notes

From Megan in Charleston, who was not the slob that this note might suggest.

Cindy and her friend had a falling out. The ex-friend then sent Cindy this message on Facebook. Something tells me this post isn’t going to be the olive branch that brings them back together.

I am not sure if you are still using my internet connection but if you are you should get your own

How hazing rituals are born

Jimmy in Worcester brings this jaunty little note from the Lambda Chi Alpha House at WPI.

Says Jimmy: “The kid whose cookware was hidden ended up just leaving the utensils (tongs, spatula, etc…) wherever they were hidden and simply bought a new set. This forced the kid who originally hid them to find them again before they started to stink up the place.”

Just in case you needed another reason to pass on the Lambda Chis’ rush-week pancake breakfast…

Dear Brother Who's Cooking Supplies Were Left Here,  You may notice that they are all one, where they are I cannot tell you. all I can say is that they are strategically hidden throughout the house. The time that it takes you to find them all should equal the time it took to clean up after you and the big mess you left in the kitchen (and not to mention all summer.) Happy Hunting! -FUBAR

I agree with Amy: “EST” is what really makes this one.

Dear enthusiastic EPID students: We have a class every Tu + Th from 11:00 am (EST) to 1:00 pm (EST). PLEASE try to refrain from entering the classroom until 1:00 (EST). We really enjoy our class + would prefer to not be interrupted. Thank you for your consideration.
