PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS

On my way out of the Chemis-
try Building after class, I nearly
stepped on a bright yellow bird
that was standing perfectly still
on the sidewalk in front of the
door.
The bird, so close to being
mashed like gum into the grooves
of the several pairs of shoes leav-
ing the building, didn't flinch.
It didn't fly off when I said
"Shoo!" and waved my arms at
it. Perhaps it had a personal pur-
pose. Perhaps it was paralyzed by
a seizure.
A few days later, I encountered
the same bright, exotic feathers
on the Hill Street sidewalk, but
this time they were in the form of
a pancaked splat.
Perhaps the bird was calling
out for help outside the Chemistry
Building.
Perhaps and I could have saved
it if Ijust spared the time.

False intelligence
Waiting for my Lox-O-Luck
sandwich at Amer's one morning,
I overheard a man questioning
the woman at the cash register.
"You're collecting money for
counter intelligence?" he asked,
referring to the sign on the tip
cup.
She laughed at what she
thought was a joke. Then she
realized the man was serious
and explained the pun. He was
relieved to find out that the coun-
ter help wasn't collecting money
to support American foreign
policy.

It's just Halo 3
On a boring weeknight at about
1 a.m., I was in my room finishing
homework when my roommate
walked in and announces, "We
kicked Ohio State's ass!"
Not quite sure what he was
talking about - the football game
was weeks away - I asked him,
"Are you all right man? What are
you talking about?"
He responded: "We see this
team called 'osubuckeyes', they
challenge us, and we kick their
asses, not once, twice!"
He doesn't drink, so there was
no point asking him if he was
drunk. So I asked him again what
he was talking about.
He responded as though the
answer was obvious.
"Halo 3, dude," he said, before
leaving again for another three
hours of gaming.
