MILWAUKEE, WI – Today local office temp and literal genius Alex Francisco discovered the situational irony embedded in the term "Good" Friday.
Good Friday, a Christian holiday observed during Holy Week, commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. "Looks like it wasn't so 'good' for Jesus, huh?" said the utterly brilliant Francisco. "Guess they didn't take that into consideration when they named the holiday, did they?"
GAMMY'S HOUSE – At a press conference this afternoon, your less favorite grandmother "Gammy Florida" announced her plans to die at a pretty inconvenient time for you.
"I've decided to pass into the Great Beyond next week, just two days before that midterm for which you've been studying for weeks," said Gammy Florida, who never really seemed to take a liking to you anyway.

CAMBRIDGE, MA – Reports indicate that Jeremy Flemish ‘18 is surprisingly a completely normal person, despite choosing to wear his hair in a ponytail.

BREAKFAST BLEND, MA - A local coffee bean has been having some second thoughts about whether it really wants to try the grinder. But after weeks of no action, this bean thinks it may be time to use the appliance soon, even if it does have some reservations.
The bean, purchased 20 days ago, has always been forward-thinking and accepting of its own desires. “It’s not that I have anything against beans who’ve already tried the grinder. In fact, I completely respect their choice to do that. I’m just worried about putting myself out there like that.”
Grand Rapids, MI—Resulting from his deeply held beliefs about the state of the climate, local warming denier David French, 29, doesn’t think it’s a nice day today. “I just don’t really think it’s that nice out,” he told reporters, “that’s my intuition, and no amount of scientific evidence will convince me otherwise.”

Smith ‘19, who describes himself as “usually not the type to post this kind of thing” has regardless decided to post a political message on Facebook anyway.

He described the issue in his post as “problematic” and called for his friends to “get the word out to as many people as possible”.
Brooksville, VT – Breaking the calm of a late fall afternoon, Jordan McTownish left his shopping cart smack in the middle of the local Phil’s Organics parking lot.
The slowly lilting cart was narrowly missed by a backing-out blue Toyota Prius, and then careened slowly into a parked neon green Toyota Prius.
“Sure, it’s annoying that the cart was left out,” mused shopper Francine Dawson, as she loaded organic squash into the trunk of her fire-engine red Prius. “But look – the shopping cart return is only thirty five feet away. It must have been an emergency.”
