Get ready to laugh!

topped off with a fantastic sampling of Latkes and Hamentashen
to eat immediately after the event.

Sponsored by MIT Hillel. Supported by UA Finboard, ARCADE, and the
Peter de Florez fund for humor.

* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latke
... basically, potato pancakes.

** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamantash
... basically, triangular jelly-filled cookies.


I'll be going. Does anyone else wish to join me on this most Jewish of excursions?

Liza came over and asked if Emily wanted to go.

The response: "Hell yeah I do, and so does Vernon."

I understood how her sentence started, but I was very confused by the end of it.

Reminds me of getting one-shotted in 10-19.

Man I miss WoW.

oh God... I'm at the debate now and it is, if possible, worse than I dared imagined. It's as depressing as it is disappointing... a sea of brutal humanity parted only by weak 'jokes' to which these sheep flock like its the Rapture.

God save our... my soul

That's the reason I didn't want to go. People laughing at bad jokes like they're funny for an hour is what I expected. And fake debates about meaningless things, especially when it's done every year...

I hate to say it...

...I really do...

...but on the whole... it was pretty damned funny.

...to be fair, there were times when people (like sheep) laughed at things that were not funny (so people thought they thought the jokes were funny)... and that sickens me.

Still... pretty damned funny, I'm sad to report.

The thing is, people is DOOMCom are well known for repeating the same not funny thing over and over again and laughing each time. At least the jokes at this event are new every year.

I hate DOOMCom

It's true, DOOMCom is pretty terrible at that.
