In a rare case of reverse mechanization, a time-honored Davidson employee, the Chambers wheelchair accessibility button, has lost his job to a pair of women doorholders. “I was shocked when it happened,” said a visibility distraught wheelchair button, “they just showed up one day, and boom, I’m unemployed. Who will take care of my family? What about the little Wheelchair Buttons? Now I can only drown my sorrows in a 30pack of motor oil.” Across campus, the same trend has been taking place, in accordance with Davidson’s new “humans-first” policy. “I went to my favorite water fountain, and it was gone!” said one Davidson carbon-based lifeform. “Instead there was a woman with a hose, and a bad attitude. I’ve never gotten so much lip from a water-dispenser.” The Commons conveyor belt has been replaced with a team of short men who jog in endless circles and grab trays from waiting students’ hands. With more smiles and human interaction, the change seemed like an upgrade, until half the conveyor belt took

Newt Gingrich Exposes Self It was the battle on the border as President Obama and Arizona governor Jan Brewer exchanged verbal blows on the runway of Phoenix International Airport, followed by a serious finger-wagging at the President by the blonde bitch of the West. While allegedly handing him a letter inviting him on a casual safari-style tour of Arizona’s Mexican border in a border patrol outfit guarded by multiple canine units and desert warfare-issue hummers, sources claim that this suspicious letter had already been opened and read during a brutal body cavity search involving cactus needles common among the state’s numerous border patrol stations. In a clear “Jan and a certain Mr. breach of na- Newt Gingrich had been tional secupulling a Monica and Bill rity, the confor quite some time” tents of the letter were somehow leaked to that bastion of free speech Wikileaks, revealing the shocking news that didn’t actually shock anyone except perhaps Mr. Brewer: Jan and a certain Mr. Newt Gingrich had been pulling a Monica and Bill for quite some time, confirming old Newt’s weakness for borderline personality blondes. While the governor’s daddy issues may have crossed the line in respect to the building relations with the Gingrich campaign, Jan “Brewdogg” Brewer refuses to back down and was overheard threatening to release Obama’s mediocre high school basketball stats in her new book Tarantulas for Lunch, hoping to reduce his street cred among her constituents while simultaneously giving Newt a little hand.

“I See What You Did There”

President Obama rebutted the criticism in the book and released a press statement “ball-up or shut-up, Jan.” He also mummbled a comment under his breath about “handles like a spider,” mocking the Governor’s title of her underwhelming memoir.
