What is the college for?

Remember those away message I use to have more prominent on the site? I found them again, and threw them in a Wiki… which means that you can add your own favorite away messages. Click here to see them all, and add your own by editing the original page.

Here’s a favorite. I’ve found it quoted on other websites (with thanks to moneydick.com) by people who’ve thought it was an original creation. It’s actually lyrics from a Dead Kennedy’s song:

I go to college
That makes me so cool
I live in a dorm
And show off by the pool

I join the right clubs
Just to build an impression
I block out thinking
It won’t get me ahead

My ambition in life
Is to look good on paper
All I want is a slot
In some big corporation

John Belushi’s my hero
I lampoon and I ape him
My news of the world
Comes from Sports Illustrated

I’m proud of my trophies
Like my empty beer cans
Stacked in rows up the wall
To impress all my friends

No, I’m not here to learn
I just want to get drunk
And major in business
And be taught how to fuck

Win! Win!
I always play to win
Wanna fit in like a cog
In the faceless machine

I’m a terminal terminal terminal preppie


the song continues:

Terminal terminal terminal preppie
Terminal terminal terminal terminal
Terminal terminal terminal terminal
I want a wife with tits
Who just smiles all the time,
In my centerfold world
Filled with Springsteen and wine!
Some day I’ll have power,
Some day I’ll have boats.
And a tract in some suburb,
With Thanksgivings to host!
