Misinformation since 1918
Shrum nightmare continues
Tenderbirds prove that anyone
can beat their pathetic team
by Hesse McBootie-Martian
The men's Tenderbird football team
didn't know what hit them on Friday
night when they took on three homeless men and a bag lady in this year's
Shrum Bowl. The Tenderbirds lost
an agonising bout to the Homeless
Sleepers by a score of 64-0.
The beginning of the end for the
Tenderbirds came early when safety
Bert O'Feather got confused by the
unique style of the Sleepers' defence
and scored on his own endzone.
. "The bag lady was totally smiling
at me,' said fifth-year defender Ibea
Sissi. 'And I thought, chicks! Score!'
O'Feather caught the unlikely
pass from the defender and scampered 75 yards, untouched by the
Sleepers' dumbfounded offence, for
the devastating score.
And from then on, the Sleepers'
own touchdowns just kept coming.
The team was driven to win by
hunger and misunderstanding, said
one player.
'At first I thought they were going
to feed us,' said Sleepers quarterback Ilive Inavan. "They had this
thing they called a pigskin, but when
I grabbed it, it didn't look like any pig
I'd want to eat It looked like a football. So I just threw it.'
.That throw would land the
Homeless six points.
•'When asked about her teammate's play the bag lady said, "Please
leave me alone. I'm so tired.'
Despite Coach Justone Moreloss
yelling at the Tenderbirds about the
Shrum Bowl being two months ago,
the team fought harder than they
usually do, which isn't very hard.
"They were just too tough," said first-
year linebacker Endtha Pain.
"Especially the httle guy with the
wheelie thing. Man, he really tripped
me! up there.'
4 The Sleepers deployed a highly
organised offensive attack to blow
out the Tenderbirds,
"I'm not sure what those" football
guys were trying tp do,' said one of
the Sleepers. "My grandma plays
better football.'
"I thought I could, uh, take them,"
..said. Tenderbird Casey Are-youbaldL
"But it was like the toughest, er, \
mean strongest.'..no toughest...ooohh
is that cake? I love cakel"
"The guys really gave it a hundred
and ten percent,' said  Moreloss of
the T'eriderbirds, _ "It's too bad, this
wasn't the real Shrum Bowl. I can't
beUeve we lost again. Those lucking'
players will never get their shit
together. * *
"I think monkeys could have beat
us out there tonight," said "O'Feather
of the follied football-Birds. "Rats
even could have beat us. I hate this
team. I should have become a model.

Womyn's Centre launches
campaign to ban male nipple
Lactating a privilege, not a right,
says militant \
feminist group
Wal-Fart signs onto U-town
by Megathon Woodmas
by I've-got Dung
A part of the male anatomy, considered by most as completely innocuous, has somehow offended a gaggle
of crazed feminists.
Members of the UBCOCC
Womyn's Centre' converged on the
SUB to protest the male nipple yesterday, wearing nothing but nipple
clamps and shrieking nonsensical
"Hey-hey! Ho-ho," they screamed
at the top of their lungs, 'men's nipples and surrounding areolas have
got to gol'
Most of the women described the
male nipple as 'revoltingly hairy'
and objected to the male nipple's sex-
ualisation of an otherwise safe student space.
"The fact that men are "even
allowed to have nipples is perverse,'
said Ima Prude, a Womyn's Centre
representative, while- fighting* back
tears of rage. 'But to be able to bring,
them into the campus environment?
It's unconscionable!*
The women are fighting for the

<   w
HOLY NIPPLES, BATMAN I Womyn offended, mefelt payne photo
ban of the male nipple in all classrooms and common areas.
"You're hot permitted to smoke in
those places, so I don't see why the
male you-know-what should be
allowed,' said protester Enid Totalho,
who was unable to bring herself to
say the word 'nipple.*
When approached for comment,
UBCOCC VP Students Brain
Sulliedman looked utterly baffled.
"I have absolutely no idea what
they're trying to accomplish here," he
s$id, leering at the women's pendulous breasts. He then added, "Does
not compute! Does not compute!" as
smoke began billowing from
his skull
Top cross-country runner Gerry
Kaiz said that although he'd rather
not have to give up his nipples, he
does see some tenuous merit in the
insane feminists' position.
"[My nipples] can be kind of a nuisance sometimes,' said Kaiz. "They
get chaffed by my shirt when I go running even after I lube them up good."
Mike Hunt of the Delta Omega
Rho Kappa fraternity, on the other
hand, was less than sympathetic to
the Womyn's Centre's campaign.
"Tell those fiickin' dykes they can
come lick my nubbin right here,* he
yelled, fondling his peck through his
beer-soaked baseball T.
He then wiped the remnants of
the urinal puck his brethren had
dared him to eat off of his soul patch
and passed out in a puddle of his
own vomit ♦
Big-box store Wal-Fart will be the first
company to begin construction on the
'culturally rich" University Boulevard
site after signing a contract with
UBCOCC Properties Trust yesterday.
The move heralds a glorious new
age for UBCOCC, said Wal-Fart
spokesman Guy Evans.
"A Wal-Fart on University
Boulevard would save students from
paying high [Nothing Matters Society
(NMS)] prices and give them access
to cheap canned food, bulk condoms,
a Wal-Fart line of credit and real
jobs," he said.
Low prices and a booming economy are a boon to. students,
said UBCOCC spokesman Scott
Macravedrugs, and UBCOCC looks
forward to working with Wal-Fart in a
close arrangement
"It will provide students with real-

world occupation-experience that a,
university degree simply doesn't
offer," he said. 7       ~
Professors emeritus forced into
retirement will still find gainful
employment on campus working as
greeters, he said.
The NMS Student Council summarily dropped its opposition to Wal-
Fart and welcomed Evans and his
entourage, complete with new Wai-
Fart patio furniture for the Council
"I think the consultation process
was pretty good,' said NMS VP
Academic Laura Fester, patting
her wallet.
While students stand to benefit
from sales jobs, Wal-Fart cleaning
staff will be lemurs imported from
Borneo. This has the advantage of
sidestepping the immigration laws
which recently caught Wal-Fart off
guard, said Evans, but only if the primates are appropriately vaccinated.
"Hey, ebola's bad, you know?*
he said.
Out-of-work Plant Ops staff were
seen clustering around the monolithic Buchanan Tower, standing in
silent reverence, their leafblowers
cast to the ground; Grabbing pens
and humming "Thus Spake
Zarathustra," they marveled at their
sudden fine dexterity and ability to
use more complex tools.

Make your own news story!
'Fire, then flood in the SUB*? 'AMS budget careful and boring"? Seems pretty eye-catching, yes? Certainly apt We may
have amazed you with our on-the-ball news writing—hell, you
may have even thought it was a talent
Well, we're coming clean. News writing is shamelessly formulaic,
and we news writers often worry about being replaced by mildly
articulate lemurs. But the time has come to share that formula.
With the careful application of some choice words, you too can fabricate a news story (not that we would ever do that...).'
Write the parts of speech of your choice in the slots below, and
then write them into the right place in the. story. For example,
'noun3' could be any of "activist," "Bad' Santa," "Jesus," or an
idea of your choice, of course. :

Like in that classic court picture1,
our favourite celebrity, Michael
Jackson, lost more than his nose
this time. All the king's horses
and all the king's men couldn't
figure out how to put MJ back
together again. So it's up to you:
make young Michael bust out
"Rockin' Robin", or replicate his
"We Are The World' campaign.
Or try your hand at making him
look normal again; you can't
really make it any worse.

Yk, at the Ubyssey, the official student newspaper of UBC, feel that we should be doing our most to recognize and
encourage activities and events that develop and strengthen a sense of community on campus. For our 80th, r>
anniversary in 199$, we established a $50,000 endowment that will fund the Ubyssey Community Contribution

1. Organizing or administrating an event or project, or
2. Promoting activism and awareness in an academic, cultural, political recreational or social sphere.
The award is open to all returning, full-time, UBC students, graduate, undergraduate and unclassified in good
standing with the Ubyssey Society. For our 85th anniversary, we will award two $3,000 awards for projects last year
and this year. Decisions Will be made in late January 2004 and awards will be disbursed to the successful candidates
, in early February 2004- 7
Nominees for the award wpl be judged on:
1. The impact of the contribution made - the number of people involved or affected .
2. The extent of the contribution - the degree to which it strengthens the sense of community on campus,
3. ■ The innovation of the contribution - preference will be given to recognizing a new contribution over the administration of an existing one.
4. The commitment of the individual to UBC ■
as a community.                              ■'•.■'■                     -

havebeenmet 7  ■"-, ■'■-',   '-'■'. - .- ' "
