A TIP FOR
DEVELOPING
YOUR COCKTAIL
PARTY
VERNACULAR

The Church of the SubGenius: A post-modern religion that originated in Dallas, Texas in 1953 and gained popularity over
the Internet in the 1980s and 1990s. The central belief in the Church is the pursuit of Slack, described as the sense of free-
dom, independence, and free-thinking achieved by the realization of personal aims. The Church asserts people are born with
Original Slack, but lose it to a worldwide conspiracy of average people, or Earth Pinks. The central symbol is a clipart render-
ing of the smiling, pipe-smoking face of J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, who the Church claims was the best salesman the drill bit indus-
try has ever seen. The Church also claims that "A True SubGenius, however, understands EVERYTHING, INSTANTLY upon
exposure to the Word or even just the Face of Dobbs." Anyone can become a SubGenius minister for a $30 ordainment fee,
a position that comes with the guarantee: "Eternal Salvation or TRIPLE Your Money Back!"

FOOD
From page 5B
breakfast food's rainbow, childish
counterparts. Like in most dining
halls, Cracklin' Oat Bran reigns
supreme, while Lucky Charms, a
favorite sugary cereals in other
cafes, falls to 12th place.
Granola consumption: average.
WEST QUAD
For reason beyond this article's
scope of reasoning, West Quad eat-
ers are the secret freaks of the din-
ing services system.
Pepsi, a classic cola heralded by
commercials as the drink of agener-
ation, never falls below third place
for most consumed soda in a din-
ing hall except at West Quad, where
it's ranked sixth. The soda's almost
equally adored kin, Diet Pepsi, is
ranked seventh, In the duo's plac-
es are pink lemonade at first and
Mountain Dew at second - two
underlings that receive moderate
attention in other dininghalls.
West Quaders are also eccentrics
in terms of ice cream consumption.
While the average residence hll
diner eats .5 servings of ice cream
per meal, diners in West Quad only
manage .01 servings. That trans-
lates to 1,715 fewer cones than the
campus average of 2,390 cones
served that week
West Quaders eat an average
amount of salad, about .6 servings
per diner, but they don't enjoy the
same quality lettuce. West Quad is
one of two dining halls with salad
bars that blend more nutritious
Romaine lettuce with empty-calo-
rie head lettuce at a one to one ratio:
most dining halls mix in twice as
much Romaine as Iceberg.
West Quaders keep it mostly
mature with their cereal selec-
tions, choosing Special K Red
Berries, Cracklin' Oat Bran and
Honey Bunches of oats most often.
But Cinnamon Toast Crunch and
Honey Nut Cheerios slip in as the
fourth most eaten cereals.
As in the cases of ice cream and
Pepsi, West Quad also has the low-
est consumption of granola.
ALICE LLOYD
Alice Lloyd, though a smaller
dorm, houses two learning com-
munities and a slew of archetypical
Hill-area freshmen --hungry fresh-
men, as it turns out. With higher
rates of salad, ice cream and gra-
nola consumption thanmost other
halls, it would seem Lloyd diners
might be trying to eat through the
stress of their first years in college.
Ice cream consumption in Lloyd,
at .92 servings per person, is almost
double the campus-wide average of
.5 servings. Only Betsy Barbour girls
eat more, at 1.2 servings per diner.

QUOTES OF THE WEEK

TALKING
POINTS
Three things you can talk about this week:
1. King Tut's face
2. Musharraf's martial law
3. An exploding comet visible to the naked eye
And three things you can't:
1. Late-night show re-runs
2. Ugg boots
3. Pregnant pop stars

"CHe wants to demolish things like
the Department of Education, but
we can do that very peacefully, in
a constructive manner."
- JESSE BENTON, campaign spokesman for Ron Paul, on how
Paul doesn't advocate blowing uobuildings even though he raised
millions of dollars on Guy Fawkes day, a holiday commemorating a
thwarted bombing attempt on the Houses of Parliament in 1605
"We'd much rather work than
stand in the cold. Writers are
people who fear the sunlight."
- JOHN OLIVER, "The Daily Show" writer, on the Writers
Guild of America strike

I would at this
time venture to
read out an excerpt
of President Abra-
ham Lincoln,
especially to all
my listeners in the
United States."
- PERVEZ MUSHARRAF in a
statement about his decision to
suspend Pakistan's constitution

YOUTUBE
VIDEO COF
THE WEEK
Rachael Ray
doesn't have
anything on him
Who says the British don't know
how to cook?
UK beatboxing champion Dar-
ren "Beardyman" Foreman man-
ages to serve up ingredients you'll
want to savor in a three-minute
"cooking show."
The bowls on his baker's table
contain not spices or flour but the
essential components of an "eclec-
tro-funk daddy superstar break."
Deadpan in his blond wig and
apron, Beardyman is more funny
than instructional - but then,
his series of kickdrum, snare and
"white noise" imitations isn't for
armchair beatboxers. When he
adds each component into his
mixingabowl hemakes a sound
or what he calls an "effective
break."
Like a true professional, he has
an already-made break at the ready,
as Julia Childs could have the per-
fect souffl materialize on com-
mand. Beardyman's recipe may be
hard to follow, but his tough-love
instruction is golden.
