RUTGERS CHANGES MASCOT TO SCARLET SERFS BY LIL' BIT STAFF WRITER

COLLEGE AVE—Officials have announced that the Rutgers mascot formerly known as the "Scarlet Knight," will be changed to the "Scarlet Serf" in an effort to reflect the middle-class values the University prides itself on. "This change represents a chance for the peasan- I mean students, to symbolize what they always have: strong work ethic, pride in what they produce, the desire to tithe a third of their wages, and a close-knit community," Barchi said. "I mean, "Scarlet Knights," sounds sexier, in theory, but serfs can be sexy too!" Barchi said as an underling rubbed his feet near a roaring fireplace within his noble and privileged estate. "I like the idea of being a Scarlet Serf!" said freshman Ben Thomas from where he stood on the crowded bus that shuttled

"I don't really understand the point of switching mascots. What was wrong with the old one?" asked junior Mel Sullivan, standing in line for her carefully rationed cold mush at Brower.

Brower chefs 'too tired' to cook, order pizza from Nuebies instead BY KCIG MANAGING EDITOR

BROWER COMMONS—This past Monday, the chefs at Brower were reportedly “too exhausted” to cook, and instead chose to get pizza delivered for all of the evening’s patrons. “It’s been a long day at work, and frankly I’m just too tired to make dinner tonight,” said Head Chef Bob Johnson. He continued, “I’ve been so busy I didn’t even think about what I’d make for dinner. I mean, we have a bunch of leftovers, but I’m too tired to heat ‘em up. I’d rather just get some pizza delivered from Nuebies.” At 4:30 PM, when the dining hills are scheduled to transition to serving dinner entrees, the dining hall staff reportedly

NFL Waterboy Lockout Still Frat boys switch to adminisOngoing tering roofies at dining halls BY THE KILLA WHALE NEWS EDITOR

NEW YORK CITY—While the National Football League welcomed back their referees this past week, the lesser publicized waterboy lockout is still keeping players and coaches thirsty for an agreement to be made. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who has been at the receiving end of harsh criticism for allowing replacement referees, is now being targeted for letting negotiations with the league waterboys slide. “I’m not responsible for these lockouts, it was the greedy referees and now the envious waterboys that want to pull every penny out of our pockets,” said Goodell. League waterboys, who average an hourly wage of $7.25, are asking for $9.00 an hour and a stipend for weekly travel. Unfortunately, the NFL and the team owners do not want to increase wages; rather, shorten their contracts and provide the waterboys less benefits. “Their hourly wage is sufficient, they get one free small fountain soda at all home games, and their 10% discount on Nikeembroidered NFL gear excluding jerseys, hats, and hooded sweatshirts should be enough for them. Their insatiability is relentless,” said Goodell. According to the waterboys, FAST FOOD

McEntyre responded, “He just said ‘Hey, this should cover the pizza for everyone. I’m not sure how much the tip is, but if you had maybe a fiver, if you could just throw that in, I’ll get you back.’ I mean, come on, man.” As of press time, McEntyre has not received compensation for taking care of the tip.

the league does not even allow them to drink the water that they provide for the players and coaches. New England Patriots Starting Waterboy Sherman Hubert, 16, was the first to defy this rule over the pre-season which led to the strike. “I was thirsty so I texted my mom and she said it was okay so I took a sip of water but then Coach Belichick caught me,” said Hubert. “Then they hung me from the goalpost by my shoelaces.” Players now regret their cruelty and insensitivity towards the waterboys as they have been settling for buying 24-packs of Nestle water bottles. “Nestle is always on sale so I have to get it,” said Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski despite having a yearly salary of $9 million including an $8 million signing bonus. “But it has such a weird taste to it. I miss Hubert. I miss his crisp, filtered, Appalachian water.” To further their troubles, Gronkowski accidentally bought a 24-pack of grape-flavored Nestle last week. “The packaging all looks the same!” said Gronkowski. Teammates and players around the league have cited this example as to why the NFL needs to prevent such a lack of judgment by settling with the waterboys soon.

BY SUPA KRUPA TROOPA BUSINESS MANAGER

DINING HALLS— The semester started only a few weeks ago and fraternity brothers here at Rutgers are starting their usual shenanigans—rushing, hazing, and roofying. Statistics show that 95% of fraternities have not succeeded in administering Rohypnol to their inebriated victims. Studies also show that partygoers are well aware of the danger of not knowing what is in “jungle juice.” “Rutgers admitted a shit ton of folks this year and we figured we might as well use this to our advantage!” said Phi Sigma Zeta brother Jimmy Santos. To increase their success rate, these fraternity brothers have decided to move away from targeting the generic drunk-freshman demographic to every Rutgers student with a meal plan. “I remember sitting in Brower eating mashed potatoes and then I woke up in someone’s dorm with a guy zipping his pants up,” said SAS Junior Ra-

chel Schmidt. There have been countless similar experiences from students campus wide. Reports from Dining Hall staff claim there are students falling face-first into food and collapsing onto the ground. The Brower staff has expressed concern but is alleviated by the strong ethical values of Rutgers men. “Some of the lucky girls were thrown over the shoulders of strong, muscular boys and taken to the hospital! Bless their little hearts,” said Mama Brower. Now students walk into dining halls and are welcomed by brothers in lettered apparel floating around the beverage stations waiting to slip Rohypnol into drinks. “I can’t wait to get girls from different worlds! ” said Kappa Psi Beta President, John Svoka, “Mad drunk biddies at Brower, feminist hippies in Nielson, Asians and engineers on Busch and freshman and business majors on Livingston won’t be able to resist me…not that they could anyway!”

Man, My Beard Makes Me Look Fucking Awesome BY SOME GUY WITH A BEARD

ETHICAL QUESTION OF THE WEEK

If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me? NO

YES

BY LIZ ELIZABETH

Someone call the cops. No seriously, a beard this good should be illegal. I can’t even begin to imagine how many girls will swarm me once I step outside my dorm. A fire hazard shall come forth as has never been seen before. To be honest, I’m thinking of just shaving it off right now before it gets TOO good. I mean,think about it. A man with facial hair as eloquent as mine will need to be cautious. Cautious of the hordes of jealous men that have set out to retrieve their wives, girlfriends, and fuck-buddies, all lost to my beautiful flavor-saver. On the other hand, I could use this fantastic Missouri Compromise as more than just a shadow to my finely sculpted face. I’m sure I could go on talk shows, live news, maybe even win a Guinness World Record for my heroic achievement. You know, maybe I should just sit back and think. With a great five o’clock shadow comes great responsibility. Let’s see what President Obama has to say.

Sorry, but no thanks. All this studying I’ve been doing lately has been giving me a headache, and tonight it’s just killing me. Besides, I really like to just think of you as a friend. You mean so much to me, and I’d hate to endanger that friendship. I enjoy talking to you so much, and it just won’t be the same if we do...this. You know what I mean, right? I hope you understand what I’m saying. Want to go watch a movie later, instead? I have this great friend Brad that you should meet, so I can get your approval. It’s okay if you can’t make it, though.

POLITICAL COMMENTARY

BY THE BELLAMY BROTHERS If I swore you were an angel, would you treat me like the devil tonight? If I were dying of thirst, would your flowing love come quench me? If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me? Now we can talk all night about the weather, tell you ‘bout my friends out on the coast; I could ask a lot of crazy questions, or I could ask what I really want to know: If I said you had a beautiful bodywould you hold it against me?

Useless Reviews of the Week BY LIL BIT | Personals Editor

Scott Hall Water Fountain

As far as water fountains go, this one was just okay. I walked out of class excited to get a sip of water, but the stream was so weak that I had to lean in much farther than I was comfortable with. I was going 90, and the fountain was going 10. I got so close to the spout that my lips brushed the weird rusty opening where the water comes out, which resulted in an unpleasant metallic taste. Eventually I quenched my thirst by puckering my lips and making a weird slurping noise to avoid a tetanus infection. I would give this fountain 1 out of 5 stars.
