Sources: Yelling drunk guy on Euclid “really cool”
Sophomore Arts and Sciences student Timothy Eugene thought his drunken coolness was going largely unnoticed as he walked home empty-handed and disappointed from a party at approximately 12:47 am last Saturday when he decided to do something bold.
“Fuuuuuuucccckkkkk this SHIT!” he yelled as he strolled down the street, shocking a few unsuspecting freshmen on their way to Kimmel. He then proceeded to kick snow off the curb and slap his buddy, Steve, on the ass.
According to multiple onlookers that night, Eugene’s display of raw manliness and unfettered, unnecessary testosterone was a clear demonstration that he’s a really awesome guy who should have a lot more friends than Steve, who wears braces.
“Yea, I was really impressed by that drunk guy who yelled on Euclid,” said one cute sorority girl who would totally bone Eugene if she couldhandle a real man. “He must be, like, a really awesome guy if he thinks that screaming in public is a smart thing to do.”
Steve could not be reached for comment because his head was buried in his hands as he tried to avoid eye-contact with any and all passersby. The party Eugene left, meanwhile

I’d like to state that I am not an alcoholic. But I do like a good drink. What I don’t like is going down to DJs/Chucks/Lucys/Flip Night and waiting for seemingly decades to get to the bar only to find out their drink selection is based on lackluster liquor and even shittier beer. Why bother?... MORE »

Last Thursday, a brand new bar had its grand opening on Marshall Street.

With America taking cover for the coming baseball storm, I give you my Major League preview, in poetry form.
The Phillies and the Red Sox are every expert’s picks But what about the Yankees, those pinstriped New York pricks? They might not have four aces, or Theo Epstein’s additions But what they lack in talent, they make up for with C.C.’s three chins. Then again there are the Giants ““ the defending champs are...
