Sororities girls. This time of year they come from all across the country and make Lawrence, on average, less ugly.

So lets get this straight.
Those bike riders who wear spandex are funding the Koch Brothers.

Funding the Koch Brothers and ignoring traffic rules. Great.

Cheech and Chong? Uh...yup.

I guess "Rip his flipping head off!" didn't make the cut?

nod to Babboy even if he went to LBU. /little brother university/

"Tied stick? C'mon Autie, you should know better, you old burnout" Eddie

I think he is paraphrasing Cheech and Chong.

no, really Eddie, we used to get this pot that was tied to a stick. This real long sticky top would be wrapped on a little bity stick (bamboo I think) and tied up with a piece of fishing line. Thus tied stick.

Definitely not Late Night with Larry Brown featuring Bill Self, formerly featuring Roy Williams. I was in school for the first one in the 80's. I thought it was a one-off thing but know it's overblown and redundant.

The wooing. It's a new tradition, but the best one ever.

Most of the basketbal traditions have been ruined. Corporate sponsorship took care of that.

Tied stick? C'mon Autie, you should know better, you old burnout. I've always enjoyed setting the Union on fire.

R_I, the CDC? Really? Now there is a government agency that mostly exist to monger fear and generate good retirement benefits for scientist who couldn't get a real job. The only thing they do well is to tell us the sky is falling.

Along with Waving the Wheat & The Chant, it's always cool to watch the KU Marching Band come double-stepping down the north end zone stairways prior to the start of every football game.

autie,
The CDC recommends that people of your age group and a history of risky behaviors when they were younger get tested for Hep C.

Just saying
