Greetings, y’all! I, the Scarecrow, am back in print once more. For all those who thought I was just something I was getting out of my system in the last few columns, ha! I’m just getting started! Before I get into the meat of this column, I would like to start with a quote from an article from the previous Dag:
“Scarecrow is a nut but he runs a good show.”
– Brad Goertz
Thank you, Brad! This is the kind of high praise I work for!! You don’t have any tact, class, or simple manners, but you have good taste.
Recently, on October 30th, I had the honor of accompanying our editor into the City of Edmonton for a day of excellent adventures. We were to spend the morning touring The A Channel, Edmonton’s newest TV station. The afternoon was spent at 100.3 the Bear, those guys we are always re-broadcasting on CLCR. Our adventure started at 9 in the morning, when our editor swung by the dorm to pick me up. Our editor started questioning his logic in bringing me along about 45 minutes into our trip, when I named his car “Amy”. But, soon I was drafted into being photographer extrordanare, snapping pictures all over the places we went.

Greetings, y’all! ‘Tis I, the Scarecrow, here once again. Before we get to my column, there is just one thing I want to say. Thee are two rooms on campus that I have to say are my genuine favorites. The first one would be the station, and the second would be the Dag office. It’s just a difficult feeling to describe. When you walk into these places, you just look at the decor, smell the air, and you instantly think “Here thar be students.” They are the two places where the student is the complete boss. The cafeteria is close, but the mouth-watering aroma of grey stuff on a shingle kind of overpowers the sensation. The coffee house is OK, but it’s too social. No, the best places on campus are the station and the paper, because there every student feels that sense of belonging.

Well, here it is. April. The end of another semester. The end of another year. The end of another season of “Chaos in a Box with the Scarecrow” (Wed @ 9 on CLCR). Actually, I am glad it is almost over. I find that my normal dreams of frolicking in the sunshine with Commander Dax and the Pink Ranger have quickly been replaced with nightmares of unending papers.

Have you ever had sex with a moose? Well, I have not. I was just stuck for an idea as to how I should start this, and I had a flashback to junior high. My class had just learned the importance of a good thesis statement, and one of my fellow students started his essay with “Have you ever had sex with a moose? Now that I have your attention….” Our teacher warned this student that such a thesis statement would be more memorable than the essay, and he was right. To this day, I remember that statement, but not the essay.
