Bootleggers & The Boom Boom Lodge

Editors' Note

This issue’s theme is humor, so we’ll try to get you warmed up with a few of Lucy’s best jokes: What do you call the grass in front of the President’s house? Phil Han-lawn. What does DDS say when you ask how to contact them? Collis. How do studio art majors turn in their work? They put it on Canvas. How do you know if someone did Hiking 4 for Trips? Don’t worry, they’ll tell you. What would you call a KAF workers’ advocacy group? Baker Lobby. What do you call an awkward encounter with a former fling? An ex-hour. Why didn’t the frat need any lamps? Because they had so much Keystone Light. Now that those are over with (thank godness, right?), we’re excited to introduce the rest of the Humor Issue.
