The Real Editor in Chief
Disclaimer Alert: I do not kick puppies. I promise. In fact, my family owns a very cute little poodle that I love very much.
And truth is, I’m allergic to cats. It’s pretty difficult to love an animal that makes you sneeze endlessly, but I do try. Please don’t send PETA after me.
Basically what I’m saying is…Happy April Fools’ Day!
Hopefully our articles brought a smile to your face or brightened up your day. We have a variety of stories ranging from fake news releases to the simply zany and far-out. From Logan Mullen’s piece on the “enraging” new room draw policy; to Julian Santiago’s report on our college mascot being canned due to an all-out mascot brawl; and perhaps our most famous alumni – James Naismith – being discredited as the inventor of basketball in an “investigative” work of genius by Pat Kenney, this April Fools’ issue has plenty of laughs to offer.
It is important to note that every single “fact” in this issue is false. Quotes, sources, nicknames of writers, you name it – nothing in this issue is true except who wrote each story. Keep that in mind when reading because everything is meant in good fun. This is the one time of year we as a staff kick back, summon our inner comedians and enjoy a truly ridiculous holiday with you.
So grab a seat, invite a friend to read along, and enjoy some laughs and surprises this April Fools’ Day.
P.S. I can’t stress enough how much I like dogs.
