Is it just me, or does the opponent, Quick, sound like a weasel and a dork? Maybe he can run for Massachusetts senator in a few years.

Nah. They won't be sober enough to know what's going on.

I am reminded of a cartoon in Playboy two decades ago. Two sailors were sitting on a wall at the dock, talking, as another man was walking by. The other man had two peg legs, patches on both eyes, and a parrot on each shoulder.

The caption read, "He's a pirate's pirate."

...along with Senior Class President candidate Carla Babb, who triumphed over Hisham Salama by a mere 32 votes.

Out of how many total votes? When I went to college only about 43, 44 students even bothered to vote in these things.

"[Student Government's] overall goal is to get as much accomplished as we can," Quick said.

Yeah, like "ending racism" and "embracing diversity".

They’ve got a chain of restaurants here called “Joe’s” (I guess, the signs on the buildings say “Eat at Joe’s.”). They do goofy crap when someone has a birthday.

One guy had to put on a pirate hat and as the people sang happy birthday they’d occasionally stop and he’d have to say “Arrr, it’s me birthday.”

Also I recall that occasionally they turn on a disco ball and all the waiters/waitresses have to get up and perform “YMCA.”

On a ~$35 check I left our waitress a $20 tip. That was my unspoken acknowledgement that yes, honey, I’ve had crappy jobs too.

Maybe they're going to make Herb Sendek walk the plank.

this is awesome. When I was in college (Notre Dame) I never voted in any student govt election (except for a dorm one where my roomie was running for dorm senator). Had a pirate run for office, I definitely would've made the effort to go to the polls.
