RUPD K-9 Unit to Search Dorms Weekly BY ABA SABABA NEWS EDITOR

The Rutgers University Police Department has released a memo to all Housing and Residence Life offices concerning the K-9 Unit drug search pilot program that was conducted overSpring Break and will now be a weekly occurrence by RUPD Officers. The force used trained drug dogs to identify illicit substances in every residence hall. They were not, however, able to search any rooms to verify the contraband due to a lack of warrants from the Middlesex County Court. “We had been receiving quite a few anonymous tip offs in the weeks preceding Spring Break. We know that extensive drug use is rampant across the five campuses, especially marijuana, so we decided to nip the problem in the

bud – no pun intended,” commented the Chief of Police, Sergeant Rhonda Harris. “It’s quite a large list of rooms and implicated names. At this point, we are still processing everything, but we should be able to acquire warrants and make some arrests over the next few days.” The K-9 pilot program started after students moved out of the dorms and the results were reportedly “outstanding.” By the end of the program, the dogs had identified approximately 120 rooms as targets for undercover sting operations. The Board of Governors has not elaborated on the academic consequences for all students involved. President McCormick, however, is pushing for expulsion. “Marijuana is illegal, and that’s the

Rufus is the newest addition to RUPD’s war on drugs. bottom line. Allowing convicted drug offenders to remain in an institution of this caliber would be grossly irresponsible,” said McCormick on Monday.

Grease Trucks to Merge with Dining Services BY BENDING RODRIGUEZ STAFF WRITER

UNIVERSITY . . . . . . . . 3

Last week, the Rutgers Department of Transportation sponsored a transportaion forum that was open to all students who wanted to offer their opinions on transportation at the University. While many of the changes centered around the Greening of College Ave, a plan to drastically alter certain bus routes was hardly noticed at all. According to Transportation Director Steven Rich, the two REX bus lines (REX-L and REX-B) will no longer make stops between Livingston-Douglass and BuschDouglass respectively.

Instead, these buses will be formed into the T-REX bus line which will officially connect the New Brunswick Campus with the newly formed Trenton Campus. “As you know, I have always wanted Rutgers to expand its reach and influence in New Jersey and what better way to do that then to bring New Jersey’s Capitol into the academic family?” President McCormick told reporters yesterday. “ Tr e n t o n c a n o ff e r m a n y n e w perspectives on education that we might have missed at our other campuses.” President Richard McCormick’s

Princeton Review Ranks Louis Brown Athletic Center 12th Ugliest Collegiate Building BY GIRL PERSONALS EDITOR PERSONALS EDITOR

A recent report from the Princeton Review has placed the Louis Brown Athletic Center at number 12 in their annual report of the ugliest university buildings in the country. The report takes many factors into consideration when generating its rankings, including age of the building, dilapidation, architectural idiocy, vomit producing capabilities, and fear inducement. The arena, completed in 1977 is truly a building that stands out amongst the other edifices on Livingston campus—a lot of that having to do with the fact that it was built far away from anything else. “The RAC” was placed right behind the University of

Pittsburgh trash incinerator (10) and the Stanford University Port Authority bus terminal (11). While President McCormick appeared pleased at a press conference regarding the ranking, he believes there is still room to move up. “It’s been a point of pride to say that we can instill sheer horror into our opponents just by looking at our home court.” McCormick has spoken of treating the outer walls with acid-rain pressure washers, removing the one wildflower that has mistakenly sprouted on the premises, and employing student volunteers to texturize the walls with jackhammers. “It’s great knowing that we have the distinction of having an arena that’s equally loud on the outside as it is on the inside.”

SCILS changes name to SKILLZZ, Enrollment Skyrockets

The Jabbawockeez immediately take advantage of the new course offerings. BY SPICY CARAMEL OPINIONS EDITOR

After several weeks of deliberation, SCILS (School of Communication, Information and Library Science) has announced intentions to change its name to SKILLZZ in response to declining enrollment rates.

Currently dominated by creepy old men who stalk you on Facebook, the school aims to target the younger “urban” crowd. Dr. Steven Miller, Professor of Urban Media, said, “Well, this is New Jersey. The new name will eventually appeal to some of those inner

city and thug kids. We have a lot of those! By changing our name from SCILS to SKILLZZ, we want to let them know that they are welcome here at Rutgers.” The Jabbawockeez, after hearing the news, immediately matriculated into SKILLZZ with hopes of advancing their degrees.

“Study A Broad” Program a Hit Among Undergraduates BY ABA SABABA NEWS EDITOR

Designed specifically for engineers and other majors where the ratio of pussy to grades is inversely proportional, the “Study A Broad” program has once again proven its popularity this semester as enrollment for next year reaches record highs. F i r s t i n t r oduced two years ago, the “Study A Broad” program pairs lonely science majors with busty broads for a semester, and encourages “socialization and fornication” among its participants. “I’ve really had a fantastic time with it so far,” remarked Kirk Snyder, a freshman studying Mechanical Engineer-

ing. “It’s been three months, and I’ve already said five words to my broad. Without this opportunity, I never would be able to check girls out without the inherent stigma of creepiness that I always seem to exude.” The male participants, of course, aren’t the only ones having a good time. “I just really enjoy these kids. It gives me a sense of civic duty, that I’m doing the right thing with my life,” said senior broad Nicole Lence. If you are interested in applying for the “Study A Broad” program next year, you’d better act quickly, as spots are quickly filling up. Required application materials include a photograph,

your most recent transcript, and a 500 word essay on the topic, “What the Shocker

Means to Me.” The application deadline for the fall semester is May 1st.

Rutgers Student Confederacy Secedes From Rutgers Student Union BY JOHNNY CHALLENGER MANAGING EDITOR

After a heated debate last night, a small group of Rutgers students voted to officially secede from the Rutgers Student Union and form the Rutgers Student Confederacy with the goal of increasing students right to representation among students in groups advocating student rights. “I do say, this is coming as a last resort for me and my fellow students” said RSC chairman Robby Lee. “Maybe if the RSU was more lenient towards allowing us to have certain students slave over our work, this could have been avoided.” While the exact reasons for this fracture are not fully understood yet, it can be assumed that the RSU denied the motion to give groups like the Paul Robeson Interest group and the Association of Black Journalists only 3/5ths the representation on RUSA votes in order to “maintain a balance” in the organization.

Similarly, Rutgers has also had a history of expanding, adding Newark and Camden Campuses to New Brunswick despite those cities not necessary being the safest or cleanest in New Jersey.

In addition to this, the motion also had called for half of the student body to become “paperwork fieldhands” and spend the majority of their days picking the fonts out of the field by hand and working them through a computer gin. Naturally, this motion met fierce resistance by the RU Republicans whose president Abe Linkin said “A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect that it will cease to be divided.” Abe then added, “Also guys, come on! I really have to finish a paper so can you just stop messing around?” “Please?” Immediately after the vote to secede was approved, the Confederacy took over the Fort Sumter conference room and remained there until RUPD officer Ulysses Grant arrested the leaders and secured a confession at RUPD’s Appomattox Court.

Expect the T-REX line to be in service roughly around the same time Rutgers is regarded as a prestigious college in the Northeast.

Catholic Center Bans Sex in/on Catholic Center BY BENDING RODRIGUEZ MANAGING EDITOR

The Catholic Center at Rutgers University is known for offering students a quiet place to study during finals as well as a friendly atmosphere for those who want to just have a good time with kind people. Yesterday, however, they were forced to make an official anti-sex statement in light of the Pope’s recent condoms preventing AIDS stance. “I regret to say that we will no longer tolerate people having sex on our front yard as well as inside our chapel” said Deacon Greg Richards. “Also off limits is our altar, the Bible stand, the Eucharist container, the…” Deacon Richards proceeded to list an additional 230 places around campus that the Center frowned upon for fornication purposes. This move comes as a shock to many Rutgers students who were used to bumping and grinding in every square inch of the building. “Man, where am I going to have sex with my girl

on the side when I’m avoiding my real girlfriend?” said SAS Freshman Tony Koch. “Shit, and I’m a priest in training! This is the last year I can have sex with females that are of legal age! Fuck my life…” The Pope has been criticized for his recent stance on the AIDS epidemic in Africa by claiming condoms would not help solve the problem. Because of zero Trojans flowing into the continent, sales have skyrocketed here in the United States. “What better way to say ‘fuck you’ then to have as much privileged sex as possible with absolutely no risk of disease or pregnancy?” said Rutgers College Senior Mary Ling. “I just recently went to the KSA ‘Fuck a Yellow Cunt’ Night and let me tell you, I don’t remember a single person there!” According to Rutgers Student Sex Services, the only sacrilegious place to have sex is now the Chabad House and Hillel, both conveniently located on College Ave.

Blowjob “Food Stamp Diet” Growing in Popularity Backfires BY SATANIC YODA PERSONALS EDITOR

BY JAMES E.

FRATERNITY CORRESPONDENT

A f t e r T h u r s d a y ’s party at Phi Kappa Tau, an unidentified frat boy reportedly shoved the head of a blondehaired broad all the way down to the base of his freshly shaved genitals, whereupon his groin area was immediately coated with a generous amount of vodka, bile, and digested Brower takeout. “I saw the whole thing happen,” remarked an innocent bystander. “It looked like some pretty solid dome, but I think douchebag over there got a bit too greedy.” Phi Tau’s pledge class of 2009 was then forced to clean up the mess, and collectively hook up with the still-dripping girl. The Rutgers Interfraternity Council will be investigating the matter in the following weeks. In the meantime, they have instituted safeguard procedures that would ensure every future blowjob proceeds smoothly without a hitch. “We always have your balls in mind,” assured RIFC president, Dean Nazario.

The current economic crisis has forced newly made poor people to cut costs wherever they can. One of these areas is how they feed themselves. Instead of resorting to eating shit, garbage and tree bark, overweight poor people across America are turning to the newest diet fad: the Food Stamp Diet. Following in the footsteps of Atkins and South Beach Diet before, the Food Stamp diet seeks to help people stay healthy and lose weight by telling people what they can and cannot eat. Instead of counting “points”, Food Stamp Dieters stay to their strict regimen of food stamps to encourage weight loss. Some underprivileged youth have taken the “food stamp diet” to an extreme, consuming the actual paper food stamps. This practice has been dubbed on the streets by said youth as “ghetto matzo.” Exercise is also encouraged, and one way to lose weight according to the US Food Stamp Program is to take daily walks to and from your local unemployment insurance

office and to stand up for as long as you can in line for said benefits. Officials also noted that you could do the same while you’re applying to jobs that you won’t get. Some in government are very critical of the new government-sponsored attempt at helping poor people stay in good health. Republican Senator John McDouchebag decried the Food Stamp Diet as “needless government interven-

tion in the lives of American citizens.” “Let those suckers starve,” he said. “Think of all the money we can save and give to ourselves in the form of bank bailou-I mean, rescue plans.” One of these “suckers” didn’t share the Senator’s feelings about the program. “This shit sucks. It makes me look fondly upon the days where I was 400 pounds and had a minimum-wage job,” commented Byron Jackson, now 100 pounds and shrinking. In-

cidentally, after his interview with Medium reporters, he was rushed to a hospital pronounced dead on arrival from sodium poisoning and malnutrition. Others are much more optimistic. Recovering drug addict and ex-hooker Rihanna LeBitch told reporters, “A slice of bread is much more fulfilling than a bowl of jizz for breakfast. I would know. I lived on that shit for almost a month, and got next to no crack for it.”

FDA Approves Snozzberries for Rec. Usage BY ABA SABABA NEWS EDITOR

Washington, D.C. - After extensive lobbying by offcampus organizations, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has declared snozzberries to be “safe for human consumption” and has started approving licenses for retailers to sell

snozzberries and snozzberryrelated products over the counter to adults over the age of 18. The legislation was supposedly passed as a lastditch effort to bring America out of the current recession. Snozzberries are currently Schedule I drugs, on par with heroin and cocaine.

A “Snozzbro” proudly displays his afternoon treat.

According to a recent Gallup poll, the snozzberry industry has the potential to exceed $3.2 billion each year due its “incredible black market popularity among American citizens.” Willy Wonka, CEO of Wonka, LLC, thinks otherwise. “People think they can just eat snozzberries as they please,

without negative health consequences,” said the candy magnate. “Snozzberries today are stronger than they’ve ever been,” he insisted, referencing the sixties when everyone and their mother “dropped berries” on a daily basis. Industry expert Kurt Sativa also posited that today’s snozzberries “definitely do not taste like snozzberries [of the past].” Wonka has, however, announced that his company will immediately begin research and development on snozzberry food items, and despite widespread controversy, he will absolutely market them to children. While Congress may have based its decision on the past, many young adults are embracing the future. Generally between the ages of 18-25, these “snozzbros” have had to “go berrying” in secrecy, away from the arm of the law. “It’s like, totally baller, man. Snozzberries are just plants, you know. They should

never have been illegal in the first place,” remarked Cornelius Brown, a prominent snozzberry activist. “Now, berry-bumpers everywhere can finally schnozz in public instead of hiding like Frodo from the Ringwraiths.” Consumers can expect to see snozzberry products on store shelves gradually over the coming months. If Congress is correct, many retailers will jump on the snozzbandwagon and generate much-needed revenue. It is unclear if this measure will fully rectify the ailing economy, althouth Congressmen remain hopeful. “At this point, we just needed to get something done, something tangible, something that would make America sit back and say, ‘Finally. Some goddamned progress.’ This decision might have been a bit hasty, but as there are no reported health benefits of snozzberries, we feel that we made the right choice today,” remarked Congressman Phillips, D-NM.

Clearview Cinemas Unveil Theater 2.0 BY ZAYIN GADOL NEWS EDITOR

PEORIA – Industry experts are saying it’s the newest youth trend. Young adults are saying they can’t get enough of it. In a bold move yesterday, Clearview Cinemas made public their newest take on movie theaters – the laptop sit-in. “With the college age demographic continuing to display their acute desire for [and subsequent acquisition of] personal laptop computers, we at Clearview believe it is necessary to embrace the future with open arms…It is with this philosophy that we have established ‘laptop sit-in’ theaters,” remarked Jim Stokes, CEO. “Our new theaters cater to the masses. We allow them to be immersed in a real theater setting while streaming the latest blockbusters right to their laptops over an in house WiFi.” “It’s pretty cool, man, just what I want as a white person. My Mac goes great with the theater décor,” exclaimed a wierd dude named Ian. “There’s really no way right now to say ‘I’m a faggot and I’m better than you’ when going to the movies, and Theater 2.0 really fixes that.”

Joe Biden Wandering Around White House, Bored BY BENDING RODRIGUEZ MANAGING EDITOR

Washington, D.C. — For the 68th consecutive day in a row, Vice-President Joe Biden has had absolutely nothing to do around the White House. “The President hasn’t authorized me to do anything and everyone is busy with this economic recession,” said the Vice-President as he absent-mindedly doodled on a

Sudoku grid. “I just want to go somewhere other than this god damn place.” Since all eyes of the world are on President Obama and his handling of the historical economic bailout, Biden has been able to get away with hundreds of thousands of crimes from simple street robbery to launching nuclear warheads at Mars. Estimated damages from all of these crimes still

does not have a word to describe how much money has been lost although a team of numerologists have offered “Frooglepoopillion Dollars” as a temporary basis of measurement. “It’s so sad because normally the Senate would intentionally deadlock a vote on naming a new highway or post office in Indiana just to give the VP a sense of purpose,” explained Senator Barbara

Boxer (D-California). “But we’ve been so busy with this stimulus package, we haven’t had time to hang out with Joe Blow [Biden]. I wish he was blasting rhetoric out of his overinflated head right now. Poor little guy.” Biden is expected to make a trip to the White House kitchen tonight to make a bowl of Easy-Mac before settling in for a midnight showing of “Miss Congeniality.”

Mr. Biden is always in good spirits.

Japan is Still a Horrible Place BY CAL EN EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Tokyo —While most people identify Japan with ninja, samurai, and robots, what Japan is rapidly becoming master of is the master of suicide. There is a place in Japan called Aokigahara Forest. Also known as the suicide forest, people that want to commit suicide can walk into the dense tangle of trees never to be seen again. The Japanese government has actually declared the suicide rates a national priority and aims to reduce suicides by 20% by 2016. The situation isn’t getting better, however, as the current economic downturn just serves to drive more people to

commit suicide. You have heard this right; these people actually have a designated forest for committing suicide, and they commit suicide so often that the government has actually designated it a national priority. Many experts question how a nation with such a ready supply of girls’ panties via vending machine can bring themselves to leave such a wondrous place with the final ending of suicide, but the Japanese people are incomprehensible to normal means. While most people that have witnessed tentacle porn will know that these people are not normal, a deeper look into their disgusting psyches will reveal further perversions that will terrify those of a weak constitution.

Solution to School Shootings: Don’t let bullets hit you (with bullets)

I

heard that college shootings are bad and commonplace. I don’t really get it, but I’ll try and throw my two cents’ worth into this ring of valor. My understanding is that getting hit with a bullet in a area that will kill you is the problem, but if you don’t get hit, then there is no problem. The solution is simple, prevent shooters from hitting people in critical locations. I saw a movie a little while ago, you may or may not have heard of it, called “The Matrix”. In this film the eponymous protagonist, Mr. Matrix, dodges the bullets shot by the nefarious agents while the camera pans around him in a full 360-degree shot. I have practiced, and am certain I can now do it. I would love to share my mastery of this ability with the rest of the school, especially in the name of stopping the big problem of school shootings. However, my services will not be cheap. As it took me many a weekend to master this technique, I will require at least a barrel of raw hot-dogs to be delivered to my dorm room every day for one week. I also wish to borrow a grill for a week. LOLRELS AND DARTS

hile many of you have read my well educated and “Fair and Balanced” column over the past semester (or has it been two semesters, ahhhh, fuck bro I can’t remember) some of you still don’t believe the good points of being in a fraternity. I will try to convince you one last time with this column. My starting points in this column will be that: a. fraternities are awesome. b. fraternities are really fucking cool. ! It is a scientific fact that fraternity students are better than non-fraternity students. In studies run by students in my fraternity, it was found that frat guys are “totally cool in every fucking way.” Though exhaustive research, it has been found that a steady pharmaceutical influence of marijuana, alcohol and cocaine (and roofies in the chicks drinks at all our parties) helps boost GPA. (Note: GPA was raised from a 1.24 to a 1.25 in 3% of participants) Additionally, to fraternities, edumacation is totally important and shit. Frats give out thousands of dollars every year in scholarships to its members. Two thousand dollars to be exact. Yes, not even enough money to pay for one semester of schooling here at Rutgers. But at least it’s the thought that counts, not that I even know what a thought is, but, you know, ha ha. To sum up the importance of education, if you have

Strange New Threat From Beyond?

Letter

he United States won the Space Race with Soviet Russia about 40 years ago, but after visiting six times, we stopped in 1972. The question, therefore, is WHY? Why did the world’s greatest power stop sending manned missions to the moon? The answer, of course is space goblins. As assuredly FEMA works to kill 90% of the population and herd the rest into concentration camps, do space goblins exist. The “Moon landings” were actually troop landings of Apollo astronauts in an attempt to kill and colonize the indigenous space goblin population. They failed. The invasion was a counter-attack against the space goblins that have been attacking the world for centuries. An earlier program, “Starfish

Prime”, undertaken by the government in order to do “high-altitude nuclear testing” was actually an interception of a space goblin invasion fleet with a nuclear missile defense system, later when our great president Ronald Reagan attempted to upgrade it to a laser system, he was made fun of for his “Star Wars” system. However, the liberals and the whore that dared to stand up to him will be the first to be devoured by the thousand screaming legions of space goblins that will decend upon us from the moon, because our new President Obama refuses to acknowledge the threat of goblin invasion. Of course, these points are moot because FEMA’s going to kill us all.

DIVERSIONS

Today’s birthday (1 April 2009): Seeing as today is April Fool’s Day, your birth is actually one big practical joke. Isn’t that funny, you were never actually born!! HAWHAWHAW!

Aries (21 March-19 April): The new and unexpected will alter your life drastically. You’ll be at the department store, looking for new shoes, when you see the flash. Briefly, you get a glimpse of the cutest pair... and then you see the plastic on them melt and you’re dead.

accompany your grandma to a Barry Manilow concert. As you are getting a number from a 70-something cougar, the massive parasite you have been unknowingly been cultivating for the last 10 years bursts from your intestines. Barry Manilow is able to communicate with it.

Taurus (20 April-20 May)Today is a nice day to appreciate all that is beautiful and fine. You will be working a part-time job at a summer camp, when you go use the outhouse, and your keys fall down the extra wide hole. You will suffocate in your attempt to retrieve them... because in waste, no one can hear you scream.

Scorpio (23 October-21 November): People will find your company particularly enjoyable today. You are sharing the most passionate kiss of your life with your boyfriend when you see the tattoo on his arm. You recognize it from your Anthropology class as the symbol of the Mugboog Cannibal Tribe from Compton and suddenly realize that he actually is sucking your face...off your face.

Gemini (21 May-21 June): Inspiration strikes when you least expect it. You’ll be bungee jumping down a ravine, and the bungee system works just fine... what kills you is the bird that runs smack dab into you on the way down and drills you in the forehead. Cancer (22 June-22 July): Those who reach out to others are rewarded for their efforts. You will be doing volunteer work at the local shelter, making an impact in the lives of others, when the comet makes impact on you. Fortunately, this spells the end for the rest of the world as well. Leo (23 July-22 August): Expect to attract abundant things in life. You will be floating in your brand new pool. Seeing as you are a native of Venezuela, however, your pool is the estuary of the Amazon river you just discovered, which is chock full of piranhas. Ouch. Virgo (23 August- 22 September): You may want to break from your usual routine and try something different. You’ve heard how fun it is to ride that wooden roller coaster in the back seat and decide to try it... you only wish you had decided to cut your waist length hair, or at least tie it back. Libra (23 September-22 October): Expect a change in your personal rhythm today. You have decided to

Sagittarius (22 November-21 December): Now might be a good time to get rid of the things that no longer serve a purpose for you. You feel like the king of the neighborhood standing up in your friend’s Volkswagen, sticking your head out the sliding moonroof...until your friend makes an abrupt stop for the squirrel in the road. Capricorn (22 December-19 January):Harmony is certain if you practice moderation. You are at the zoo and sneak into the lions’ den to retrieve the cell phone you dropped. As the grimacing pain slowly blinds you and you are left to your thoughts you are amazed at how each lion takes a fair ration.

Remember when this strip was actually funny?

It’s funny, I can... Kind of remember laughing at this comic back when I was a freshman. I guess alcoholism even takes its toll on cartoonists.

This shit was never funny.

Aquarius (20 January-18 February): Stay focused and do not stray from your personal path. You are crossing the street on Courtlandt when suddenly a car swings around the corner and hits you...you will be okay. The car, however, is full of Mugboog cannibals who assume you are dead and jump out to eat you...and then you are indeed dead. Pisces (19 February-20 March): Get in touch with your creative side today. You’ll realize for a brief second as you’re making that bird house that you were pointing your nail gun the wrong way.

There are 300 people in there who really don’t give a shit, and you always get your ass handed to you by the professor.

BEAR: Rudy’s

funeral to be held Friday continued from back “I just kept yelling at him to get out of the cage, but when your ear has just been ripped off, it’s kind of hard,” said teammate Kyle Kriss. This loss knocks the Knights out of the bear fighting championships but there is a silver lining to the dark cloud, all veteran fighters will be returning next year as well as a new freshman wrestler who led his high school to the New Jersey Division AAAA championships. When asked what are they going to do over the off season, Coach Pole responded, “No idea, definitely make a Rudy shrine and continue what we do kind of best, wrestle bears.”

CURLS: USA

Curling needs to wake the fuck up continued from back offense without a rule telling him to do so! This sport will never reach football levels of popularity if we don’t let players play. I really don’t want to keep harping on this point anymore, so let’s move on. I really don’t think USA Curling is being serious about fielding a top-notch Olympic Team because of their strict adherence to whatever the IOC says is the official rules. Look at Britain’s 1924 Curling Team for instance. They took the gold medal after playing what can only be described as a fucking ass-tastically rape worthy game. Pardon my French, but fuck anyone who disagrees with my choice for Gordon Whitefellow and Herbert Longsworth for my All-Time Curling Sweeper Team. They single handedly swept through the Free Guard Zone without a moments hesitation and it resulted in gold around their necks and laurels around their heads. Please listen to me Curling Officials! I say abolish the rule and let players PLAY! As an avid fan of professional curling, I can only hope that these high and mighter rule makers can see the light of day on this issue and make curling the world’s first true universally respected sport

Ray Rice Returns to Rutgers to Finish Degree BY BENDING RODRIGUEZ MANAGING EDITOR

Ray Rice made waves in the Rutgers community after he announced that he would return to the banks of the Raritan to complete his last year of schooling and officially earn his degree in Business Sports Management with a minor in Biochemical Engineering Mechanics. “Ray-Ray is excited to be returning to the Rutgers College [sic] for the remainMike Redzone is a SAS Junior ing of my sophmore [sic] Majoring in Sports Business Management Journalism.

fraternity. He then added “Ray Ray RUN BALL!” Rice’s return to Rutgers will also mean that he will be able to play out his last two years of eligibility on the Rutgers football team which missed his yardage and TD’s in the ’08-’09 season. Allegedly, Rice was so far down on the Cleveland Brown’s roster that he would only play if the team’s janitor was injured and 2/3rds of the cheerleaders did not feel like playing that day. It was because of these ridiculous standards for playing that held Ray Ray

to only .00039 yards rushing and -2 TD’s. “Honestly, he fucking sucks but the NFL requires us to keep him out on the field like a retarded child or something,” said Browns head coach Chip Handler. “It’s like Rudy but without any sort of plot, lovable characters, or a retard who deserves his shot at glory.” Because Rice has logged experience at the NFL level, he will easily put up massive numbers back in Piscataway with his projected rushing yard total to be somewhere in the 6.8 trillion

yard range and also rushing for 3 googol touchdowns. The re-christened running back will also be expected to perform admirably in his Basic Composition class, which he still hasn’t passed after 3 years at Rutgers. When asked for the reason why Rice has performed so poorly in class, Ray simply stated, “Ray Ray don’t take tests,” and proceeded to enter himself in a sorority sister. Rice is expected to re-enter the NFL draft within a month of his return to the Scarlet Knights.

Rutgers Ultimate Wins First Tournament, Ever BY FRENCHMAN ASSOCIATE

RIDER — After two grueling days of layouts, hucks, and seadonkeys, the Rutgers Machine-B Ultimate Team won the first tournament in the thirty-year history of Rutgers Ultimate. “I’m really glad to be a part of the B team,” commented captain Phil Landicho. “Those fags on the A team can’t even play through an entire tournament without bagging.” He also noted the remarkable incompetence of the A team, given their dismal record and the fact that the smart money is on the B team winning Sectionals.

as the first time an intermural basketball team has ever beaten a school’s varsity basketball team. “Yeah, they are just not good at all, it barely surprises me that they were beaten by a bunch of real students that just enjoy shooting hoops on weekends,” commented coach Fred Hill. “I try my best and make these kids good at basketball, but I feel as if I’m wasting my time with this group. They’re a bunch of idiots.” Despite allegations that the “Wandering Jews” used illicit performance enhancing drugs in their victory over the Rutgers men’s team, captain Cockblock remains in high spirits. “We’re clean. We’re so clean. Actually, we are very fresh as well,” he said. The “Wandering Jews” will be tested for steroids over the next few weeks. They will also be suing on grounds that the Messiah is not yet here.

Bases loaded, two outs, bottom of the 9th. Rutgers is down by three runs against their rival: Juggernaut Memorial College. Sam “Big Bat” Battowski stands at the plate. He taps the plate a few times with his bat, and looks down at the pitcher, Justin George. George is six feet tall, with an arm that’s ready for the big leagues. The first pitch comes in, low and outside. Ball one. Battowski steps out of the batter’s box and looks for the signs. He goes back into the box and gets ready. Curveball, a nasty one. Battowski swings and misses, strike one. One and one is the count. Battowski is ready, and George fires a rocket down into the inside of the plate, strike two. Battowski argues slightly with the umpire. George throws another curveball, but Battowski isn’t falling for it, two and two. Sweat is dripping down George’s face into his eyes, but he doesn’t pay it any attention. He fires everything he has into the next pitch, which flies wildly outside. The catcher dives and manages to keep it from getting past him. Full count. The next pitch will decide the State Championship. George looks in. Battowski tightens his grip. Their eyes meet for a split-second. George throws.

Rutgers Bear Fighting Team Loses to Bear Inexperienced Left Bear Tackle loses critical match which drops Rutgers out of the NCAA Tournament

BY FELLATIUS MACDOOGAL FEATURES EDITOR

BUCKHUCK, TN- On Saturday, Rutger’s own Bear Wrestling Team lost in the semi-finals to a bear in Buckhuck, Tennessee. “We went in going strong but the last half was just a massacre...literally,” said the coach of the team, Lou Pole. “We trained from the very beginning, wrestling bear cubs that I stole from the zoo. I don’t know what went wrong.” At first, the Scarlet Knights pulled significantly ahead when the team’s strongest player Gene Jenkins knocked down his bear in 15 minutes and 34 seconds. “I’ve been doing this for years,” explained Gene after his match. “The trick is to hit them in head when their not looking.”

Has the Free Guard Zone Rule Gone too Far? In the Redzone MIKE REDZONE I noticed that the Canadian Curling Association adopted the Free Guard Zone rule as standard practice for all curling which to me is an extremely alarming situation for all who are interested in curling at the Olympian level. Then I picked up a copy of the latest rulebook published by USA Curling and I have to admit, the Free Guard Zone Rule has finally gone too far. I really think that true curlers are sick and tired of this outdated and frankly ostentatious rule that for years has kept the score low as well as attendance numbers. First of all, what could the Guard Zone rule do anymore? It’s like saying that all car engines have to be able to reach a speed of 20mph. Uhm, hellloooo! They already do that! A well seasoned curler can easily play defense and

The match-ending mistake came when Coach Pole decided to let beginner Rudy Ruettiger go in the final match. “I didn’t know what I was thinking. I always had Rudy on the bench and decided, since we were really ahead, to let him in. But I’ve should have predicted the next chain-of-events.” He then added, “I mean, the bear’s name was Love and Hugs, we thought it would be an easy win. Such a deceiving name. I kind of knew Rudy was in trouble when the bear ripped off half of his face. You ever see a boy crap his pants in fear before? Well, this time, it wasn’t hilarious. I should have trained him harder, but how do you lose to a bear stuffed animal?”

Spring Training Spotlight: Women’s Soccer BY ZAYIN GADOL SPORTS EDITOR

Football isn’t the only sport training for success right now. The women’s soccer squad, 15-7-2 last year, has begun their highly touted spring training regimen. “I’ve started substituting watermelons for soccer balls during practice, and told my girls to picture their unattainable hopes and dreams on the fruit as they kick it,” said Coach Glenn Crooks. “I figure if they can punt a watermelon, they can punt a soccer ball.” Although this alternative training strategy has proven successful for most of the forwards, not everyone is pleased with the presence of fruits on the field. “We believe that God hates fags and we oppose those fucking sodomizers coming near our women,” stated the Acting Bishop of the Archdiocese of New Brunswick. Others aren’t as vehemently miffed, but instead are slightly irked. “Man, those watamelons is food, nigga,” rambled a friendly neighborhood black man. “If those white-folk are out of soccer balls, I’d be happy to start a ‘hood drive to get those hos some balls. We need our watermelons as they is a healthy and delicious summertime snack!” Regardless of the opposition, Crooks will not waver
