For the funny LSD folk
« on: January 03, 2006, 06:38:28 PM »
all of my work over on the PS board gave me an idea--anyone here read McSweeneys? (http://www.mcsweeneys.net/links/lists/) I've been wanting a good idea for a "McSweeneys List," so as to be immortalized on their hilarious wesbite. Here's an example of a McSweeneys list:

Socially Awkward Situations During Which It Would Be Acceptable to Mess With Texas. BY BENJAMIN SUMLIN

Texas shows up to the party already drunk with the girlfriend nobody likes.

Texas partied too late, asks to copy homework.

Texas asks if it would be "cool to hook up with your ex."

Texas has a habit of spending more time than needed in the bathroom.

Texas bogarts the remote just before Lost.

Texas demonstrates little respect for "personal space."

Texas finds and eats the little snack cakes you've been hiding in the back of the pantry.

Texas needs you to cover rent "just until I get back on my feet, man, I swear."

Texas brings up an anecdote about his recent colonoscopy.
_____________

Here's what I was thinking:

Somewhat Dubious Law School Personal Statement Topics

1. Knows a guy who did the sister of the fellow who one walked Johnny Cochran's dog

2. The time I fell in a sewer

etc. Will it work? Will LSD be immortalized on McSweeneys? Well, only if some of y'all are freakin' hilarious, I guess.

(If I get enough funny ones to choose from, I'll post a poll to choose the best, & email it off with some moniker we choose.)

3. The time when I sent off for my Mastercard, knowing that I'd been pre-approved, and they turned me down just because I don't have a job and they never NEVER said nothing about that at the beginning - it made me REALLY MAD and I though "HELL NO" and I reached for my rifle and then I though "@#!* it, I'll go to Yale and sue the bastards for breach of contract and that way I'll make me some nice moolah AND get my revenge. Fuckers!"

6. How last year I was unconstitutionally denied admission to Michigan Law School because they don't recognize my sorority activities as adding to the diversity of their class. Greek!...Hello? So, in summary, that's why I'm applying to Washington and Lee - at least you guys recognize diversity when you see it and have an honor code that means something.

Kisses,

11. How being white, straight, and male makes me more diverse than anyone else.

12. How daddy endowed the admissions committee chair, to be followed by an addendum on how daddy gave me the legal rights to fire said chairs for my graduation present birthday.

13. How being a member of Al Quaeda has made me want to understand the US Legal system better.

15. because I've thought it over carefully, and I'd rather the government didn't have to pry my gun from my cold, dead hands.

16. Because I have a JD from Yale

17. Because I'm Jesus Christ, and I'd like to slap a copyright on my name and make some mad bank off of it. Jesus ChristTM.

18. Because I don't want to go get a job yet, now that I'm done with college.

19. Why Kelo v. New London means I'm able to seize the Dean's house and turn it into a flaming effigy of the school if I'm not let in.

20. How saying to a traffic officer "but your honor - I mean officer" can prevent traffic tickets.

21. Because I want to see the look on my uncle's face when after listening to his latest arrest story I tell him he's pretty much screwed...
