26 cheerleaders get stuck in elevator at UT's Jester Residence Hall
KHOU ^ | 8-6-08 | Staff

AUSTIN -- Forget Aggie jokes.

Cheerleaders attending camp at the University of Texas have provided more than enough funny fodder for the state this summer.

Ever wondered how many cheerleaders can fit onto an elevator? We’ll give you a hint: Not 26.

But a group of peppy campers found this out the hard way at UT’s Jester Residence Hall.

Twenty-six cheerleaders packed into an elevator there, but it got stuck and stayed that way for about 30 minutes.

Some of the girls passed out.

Others used their cell phones to call for help.

Just a few weeks ago, teens at another campus cheerleading camp had an entire dormitory evacuated after they smelled an unidentifiable odor.

Three blondes are in an elevator when the elevator suddenly stops and the lights go out. They try using their cell phones to get help, but have no luck. Even the phones are out.

After a few hours of being stuck with no help in sight, one blonde says to the others “I think the best way to call for help is by yelling together.”

The others agree with the first, so they all inhale deeply and begin to yell loudly “Together, together, together.”

When asked why someone didn’t push the open door button one cheerleader answered, “Because no one had their car keys with them, duhhhh.

It took a while for this to occur because at first they called each other to ask what to do

I used to live in that dorm. Never had that kind of luck when I was there. Of course I always thought the elevators were a risky proposition back then. They never worked well and were always very slow. I walked up to my sixth floor room a lot.

So this wasn't just the lead-in for the third season of Heroes?

Save even more cheerleaders, save the world.

An escalator can never break. It can only become stairs. You would never see an “Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order” sign, just “Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience.”

The article continues:

"Just a few weeks ago, teens at another campus cheerleading camp had an entire dormitory evacuated after they smelled an unidentifiable odor. Hazmat crews descended on the scene and discovered the culprit: burnt popcorn. But the benign source of the smell didn’t stop dozens of cheerleaders from complaining of respiratory problems."

Too funny!

A blonde calls her friend and invites her to lunch.

Where should I meet you asks the friend.

Meet me at the corner of Walk and Don't Walk.
