North Carolina State is the home of the Wolfpack, but right now, a pirate is the talk on campus.

Good for him - I heartily approve of any effort to throw sand in the gears of those ridiculous overglorified popularity contests.

Not only that, but he's going to change the movie selection system on campus to make sure they are only shown features rated ARRRRRGH!

Exactly right! Bully for him.

"Voting for someone who wants to rid the campus of scurvy dogs is not really an effective way of having student government"

I think getting rid of 'scurvy dogs' is a laudable goal.
Hell, we need to make a couple hundred scurvy dogs in Washington walk the plank!

Ahhhhh, I remember fondly the days of tooling around campus and having a general good time. Today 30 years ago I would have been reading the Techinashit about a giant pigeon attacking Poe Hall, having mistaken it for a Hartz Mountain Bird Seed treat.

LOL! Speaking of that particular student paper:

The Technician: WKNC broadcasts live candidate debate

The Senate Chamber in Witherspoon Student Center set the stage for a heated Student Government debate, broadcasted on the Brad Dixon Radio Program on WKNC last night.

The live broadcast featured candidates squaring off over issues that have been hotly debated throughout the past school year.

Students running on the three major tickets were seated side-by-side, with the two independent candidates -- Matthew Waligora (student body treasurer) and The Pirate Captain (student body president) -- seated at the end of the table.

The Pirate Captain, whose real identity Technician learned late last night is junior in mechanical engineering William Piavis, appeared in full-costume, complete with a green parrot on his shoulder.

Also, another popular plank: double rations of rum on Fridays.

Sounds suspiciously like, "watery tarts, distributing swords, is no basis for a form of government."

We had the Unknown Candidate run for student president at Tennessee Tech. Even had a student ID with a picture of him with the paper bag on his head.

He won, but the admin overturned the election.

It'd have to be an engineer, wouldn't it? I would know, I was an engineering student once, albeit a failed one.

The pirate sounds a lot like me! He's probably sick of all the typical school body election BS and just trying to make it more interesting. Getting elected would be sort of a booby prize.

I believe Pirates of the Carribean was PG. Good movie too, despite my own personal opinion of the actors involved...

The campaign video for this Pirate candidate has already been shot. It is the final moments of Animal House in which Blutarsky (John Belushi), dressed as a pirate, pulls an Erol Flynn stunt, grabs the girl, and makes off with the Cadillac.

The message is clear when stop action hits the Cadillac and this legend comes up on the screen: "Senator and Mrs. Blutarsky, Washington, D.C." It fits perfectly. And it's free, if no one tells the copyright holder of the film.

Modestly suggested,

Congressman Billybob

Well one thing it showed is what would have happened had Keith Richard decided to become a pirate instead of a Rolling Stone.

"Voting for someone who wants to rid the campus of scurvy dogs is not really an effective way of having student government," sophomore Christopher Sanchez said.

As opposed to voting for a student government that wants to make every other day "Gay/Lesian/Bisexual/Transgendered Recongition Day" not to mention the multitude of various, sundry left-wing causes that student governments endorse on a regular basis at the expense of manditory student fees.

Hell, I'd cast my vote for pirate-boy before I voted for a "serious" candidate! Hope he wins!

Depp has talked his friend Richard into making a cameo appearance in the sequel playing his father. It will be Richard's first acting role.

Ought to be good for a few laughs!
