                         COLLEGE REJECTION LETTER

I wrote this letter many years ago:

Pennsylvania State University Admissions

Dear Sir,

I have received your acceptance for admission, and I regret
to inform you that I will not be attending your university in
coming years.

As a senior in high school, I have applied to many other fine
institutions to further my education. And, although yours
ranks high among them, I'm afraid that you failed to qualify.

Elimination under my system doesn't mean that you are not
qualified to educate other fine young men and women.  It
merely reflects the high caliber of colleges and universities
competing for my acceptance.

My best wishes for your future.

                            A Daughter's Letter

Dear Mother and Dad,

It has now been three months since I left for college. I have been remiss
in writing and I am very sorry for the thoughtlessness in not having
written before. I will bring you up-to-date now, but before you read on,
please sit down. You are not going to read any further unless you are
sitting down. Okay?

Well, I am getting along pretty well now. The skull fracture and the
concussion I got when I jumped out of the window of my dormitory when it
caught fire shortly after my arrival are pretty well healed now. I only
spent two weeks in the hospital, and now I can see almost normally and only
get those sick headaches one a day.

Fortunately, the fire in the dormitory and my jump were witnessed by an
attendant at the gas station near the dorm, and he was the one who called
the Fire Department and the ambulance.

He also visited me in the hospital and since I had nowhere to live because
of the burnt out dormitory, he was kind enough to invite me to share his
apartment with him. Its really a basement room, but its kind of cute. He is
a very fine boy and we have fallen deeply in love and are planning to get
married. We haven't set the exact date yet, but it will be before my
pregnancy begins to show.

Yes, Mother and Dad, I am pregnant. I know how much you are looking forward
to being grandparents and I know you will welcome the baby and give it the
same love and devotion and tender care you gave me when I was a child.

The reason for the delay in our marriage is that my boyfriend has some
minor infection which prevents us from passing the pre-marital blood test
and I carelessly caught it from him. This will clear up with the penicillin
injections I am now taking daily. I know you will welcome him into the
family with open arms. He is kind and although not well educated, he is
ambitious. Although he is of a different race and religion than ours, I
know your often expressed tolerance will not permit you to be bothered by
the fact that his skin color is somewhat different than ours. I am sure
that you will love him as I do. His family background is good too, for I am
told that his father is an important engineer for the sanitation department
he works for.  Although they say he runs his office from his truck.

Now that I have brought you up-to-date, folks, I want to tell you that
there was NO dormitory fire, I did not have a concussion or a skull
fracture, I was not in the hospital, I am not pregnant, I am not engaged, I
do not have syphilis, and there is no schwartze in my life. However, I am
getting a "D" in history and an "F" in science, and I wanted you to see
those marks in the proper perspective.

Your loving daughter, ...

Special Category: Top Reasons
Top ten ways the Bible would be different if it were written by college

10. Last Supper would have been eaten the next morning - cold.
 9. The Ten Commandments are actually only five, double-spaced, and
    written in a large font.
 8. New edition every two years in order to limit reselling.
 7. Forbidden fruit would have been eaten because it wasn't cafeteria
6. Paul's letter to the Romans becomes Paul's e-mail to abuse#NoSpam.romans.gov.
 5. Reason Cain killed Abel: They were roommates.
 4. The place where the end of the world occurs: Finals, not Armageddon.
 3. Out go the mules, in come the mountain bikes
 2. Reason why Moses and followers walked in desert for 40 years:  They
    didn't want to ask directions and look like Freshmen.
 1. Instead of God creating the world in six days and resting on the
    seventh, He would have put it off until the night before it was due
    and then pulled an all-nighter.

He telleth me more than I can write.
He lowreth mine grades.
Yea, though I walk through the corridors of knowledge,

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not flunk;

He leadeth me beside the water cooler for a study break;

He leads me to better study habits

Yea, tho' I walk through the valley of borderline grades,

For Thou art with me;
	My prayers and my friends, they comfort me.
Thou givest me the answers in moments of blankness;
Thou anointest my head with understanding,
	My test paper runneth over with questions I recognize.
Surely passing grades and flying colors shall follow me
	All the days of examinations;
And I shall not have to dwell in this university

  This is something I wrote a few months back which has been making
the rounds at UCSC. It's very long, and may not be suitable for posting
on the net because of that. But it's funny, I think.. anyhow, here it is.


You are in your dorm room. Your roommate is playing Jello
Biafra. The cups on the desk are shattering.
There is an unfinished lab book here.
There is a chemistry book here.
There are socks here.
There are empty beer bottles here.
There is a computer here.
There are six moldy bananas here.
There are several tons of dirty laundry here.
There are shattering cups here.
There is a refrigerator here.
There is a desk with drawers here.

> turn off music
  Your roommate makes discouraged sounds. The cups stop shattering.
> play beach boys
  Your roommate throws a hammer into your stereo. You now have no
stereo. Your I.Q. Decreases by 10 points.
> fix stereo
  The stereo is shattered beyond repair.
> curse stereo
  "May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your erogenous zones!"
The stereo is fixed. The sheer quantity of dirty socks in this room
is making it hard to move.
> look at socks
  They are very smelly. It is getting harder and harder to move.
> clean up socks.
  You can't. They're all welded together.
> throw socks out window
  They soar out the window with the greatest of ease, hit the
ground, and shatter.
> leave room
  24 hour Dave enters, fiending for weed. He blocks your exit.
> kick dave
  Dave doesn't seem to notice.
> yell at dave
  Dave doesn't seem to notice.
> feed dave
  Dave thankfully gobbles your food and asks if there is any more.
> eat dave's head
  You start chewing on dave's head. Dave doesn't seem to notice.
Your I.Q. goes up forty points. You now understand chapter four of
your chemistry assignment. Dave is still here.
> work on lab book
  You don't have the lab book.
> pick up lab book
  It is very heavy. You are carrying too much.
> inventory
  You are carrying:
A +10 cut-offs of tumescence
A +3 tee-shirt of tie-die
A +2 elven sneakers of silence
A swiss army knife
A badly laminated card with a picture of you on it.
A very large ring of Keys.
A (much too small) bag of weed.
A package +3 papers of zig-zag.

> look papers
  The papers are blank.
> drop keys
  You load lightens considerably.
> pick up lab book
  You struggle under the load, but prevail in the end.
> do chemistry lab
  You have no calculator. Dave grabs the lab book from you and does
the lab. You are thirsty.
> open refrigerator
  A considerable amount of cheap beer is revealed.
> drink cheap beer
  You have an instant hangover. You can't stand up. Dave mutters
something about being left out.
> kick dave
  Dave doesn't seem to notice.
> offer beer to dave
  Dave is drunk. Dave mutters something about being back and
> leave room
  You can't. You're suffering from a hangover.
> open desk
  There is some aspirin here.
> eat aspirin
  YUCK! You munch it up. You begin to feel better.
> leave room
  The door locks behind you. You are in a north-south hall. There
are several doors here, some marked with magazine clippings.
> unlock door
  You can't. Your keys are in the room.
> open doors
  You open the nearest door without knocking. Charles and Anna are
here. Dave is here. There are clothes on the floor. There are no
clothes on Charles and Anna. You get the feeling you should leave.
> leave room
  As you are leaving, Dave mutters something about Birkenstocks.
You are back in the hall. You are hungry.
> south
  You come to a lounge.
  There is a door here.
  There are two chairs here.
  There is a desk here.
  Tony is here, studying chemistry.
> greet tony
  Tony says, "Hey, bro! How's it goin'? Nice suit."

  Tony says, "I'm really stressing hard on this test, bro." You are
still hungry.

  There are stairs down to the west. There are stairs up to the
west. There is a walkway to the south.

comment loudly on your nudity.

An (even smaller) bag of weed.
A package of blank +3 papers of zig-zag.

> wear shirt
  You are resplendent in your +3 tee-shirt of tie die.
> wear shorts
  You are now a bulging wonder.
> north
  You are in a room full of simulated food.
> eat food
  You aren't even vaguely hungry. In fact, the concept of
introducing this swill into your system is bletcherous.
> south
  You are in a quad.

  You now have the munchies. Your subjective I.Q. increases by 10
points. You have a revelation involving the cosmic significance of

> eat food
  You need a tray first.
> get tray
  You now have the Tray of Cafeteria Browninan Motion.
> eat food
  You serve yourself a generous portion of cafeteria yumness. You
take a seat and begin shoveling it into your face. After two bites
you are full. You have food poisoning.
> leave
  You can't. The cafeteria is cursed. You still have food
> search cafeteria
  You find half a bottle of Everclear stashed in the salad bar.
> drink bottle
  Wouldn't you prefer something safer? Like cutting a pre-
enrollment line?
> take small sip
  A small sip is probably sufficient to kill all the residents of
Hong Kong and render it uninhabitable until the lease runs out.
> take small small sip
  You feel the potent brew coursing down your digestive tract,
killing everything in its path. You no longer have food poisoning.
You pass out. After two hours, you wake up.
  You are in a quad.
> west
  You are in no shape to move. You attempt to sit up, and the world
does a tap dance on your face.

  Time passes....

  Time passes....

  Time passes..... The world slows to a waltz.

  There is a militant lesbian here, blocking your path.

  The lesbian launches into a discourse on the oppressive
patriarchal system.

  You wake up numb from the waist down.
  You are in a quad.

  There is a militant lesbian here, blocking your path.

  The militant lesbian smiles, calls you a sister, and walks off.

  This is a gentle downhill slope. There is a meadow to the west.
The path forks here. There is a path to the northwest. There is a
path to the southwest.
> southwest
  You arrive at the mailhouse.
> look in mailbox
  There are six thousand freshmen kneeling at the bottom row of
boxes. Some are wearing short skirts, but that's slim consolation.
> wait
  Time passes....
> wait
  Time passes....  A space opens up in front of your box.

  The space is grabbed faster than you can move. You need split-
second reflexes.

  You get your spot.
> look in box
  It's packed to the bursting point.
> open box
  You goof up.
> again
  You goof up.
> again
  You finally manage to open the box. Inside there are eight flyers
for college events that happened three weeks ago. A ninth is
current - an invitation to play croquet with the provost. You
decline and roundfile the sheaf. There is a package notice here.
There is a letter here.
> read letter
  You open the letter. It is a long steamy graphic explicit love
letter... from a total stranger.
> check address
  Both the package notice and the opened letter are for your
boxmate. They are postdated three months ago. You have been

  You are hemmed in by 1000 dorm androids sans brassieres trying to
get to their boxes.
> howl
  Your howling causes the androids to stare at the sky in
confusion, giving you time to make your escape.

  You exit stage left, kicking several fembots in the shins as you
pass. The bit of abuse you inflict causes several of the fembots to
follow you, hoping for more.

  You are standing in the quad again. The smell of sweat socks
fills the air. The cafeteria is preparing dinner.
There are some fembots here.
There are some shattered sweat socks here.
There is a small red bottle that says "Drink Me!" here.
There is a book of matches here.
There is a lamp post here. There is a notice pinned to the

  You must first light a match.

  The match refuses to burn.

  You violate the ecological pristiness of the area by dropping a
filthy, unnatural, manmade piece of trash on the ground. One of the
fembots gets offended and leaves to organize a protest.

  The second match bursts into flame.
> burn notice
  The notice burns with a pleasant green flame.

  You take the bottle that says "Drink Me!"

  You walk to a deserted area between two buildings. There is a
north-south path here.
There are some fembots here.
There are some protesters here.
Your fingers are getting warm.

building to the north.
  There are some fembots here.
  There is some chanting coming from the south.
  Your fingers are burning.

  You drop the match on the ground. Your fingers continue to burn.

  The fembots are offended by the sexual symbolism and leave.
  The fire is extinguished. Your fingers are throbbing now.
  There is a match burning on the ground.

  You step on the match, burning the bottom of your foot in the
process. You should remember to wear shoes more often.
  There is a burnt-out match sitting on the ground.

  Your I.Q. drops by 10 points. You no longer grok spam.

  You enter the Merrill academic building. You are in a North-South
hallway. There is a door to the East. Exit is to the West.
> east
  You enter a quiet classroom. The students, who had apparently
been taking an exam, look up at you angrily. The professor glares
at you angrily. The students return to their frantic efforts. The
professor, who looks vaguely familiar, continues to glare. You
suddenly realize that this is your calculus class, which you have
not attended in three weeks.
> sit
  You find an empty desk. The chair squeaks as you seat yourself,
causing the student next to you to give you a grimace that would
make a good Butthole Surfers album cover. The professor brings you
a copy of the midterm.
> look test
  You look at the test. The problems on the first page are
impossible. The material on the following eight pages is worse.
Test stress causes your I.Q. to drop 100 points.

  This is impossible, as you have neither pencil nor calculator.
You realize that failing this exam means failing the course.

  Your neighbor growls angrily as soon as you start to vocalize
your request.

  You steal the extra pencil from your neighbor's desk. He does not
> do test
  You start to work on the first problem, even though you have only
a vague understanding of how to solve it. The pencil hurts your
charred fingers. Beads of sweat form on your forehead as you
scratch out calculations that would normally be done on a
calculator. You reach an answer that could not possibly be correct.
> do second problem
  Just reading the second problem severely stresses your mental
resources. You suffer a brain embolism.

  You begin calculations on the second problem. Sweat begins to
trickle from your face and armpits. You begin to stink. The trickle
of sweat turns into a raging torrent. Your brain seizes. You cannot

  As you inhale the xeroxed papyrus, you feel the knowledge of the
ancients seeping into your mind. You come to a complete
understanding of the material, but you no longer have anything to
turn in.

  What do you want to write the answers on?

  You start scribbling the solutions to the problems on the blank
papers of zig-zag. Just as you write the last answer, the teacher
collects the exams, staples them together, and leaves. You have
truly smoked this test.

  You are in a north-south hallway. There is a door to the east.

  You stumble down the hallway in a northerly direction. Smacking
into the door at the end and popping it open. You trip over your
untied shoelaces and fall through the doorway. The door slams shut
behind you.
> Tie shoelaces
  You tie your shoelaces into a very tight knot. Your shoes can now
only be removed by surgery.

                        TIPS FOR SURVIVING COLLEGE

* Minimize food budget by scheduling classes around Happy Hour.

* Enjoy being a Sophomore -- It will be the best three years of your life.

* Wear an athletic cup to panty raids, because it's all fun and games until
someone loses their 'nads.

* Lemon juice and baking soda make an excellent bong water stain remover.

* Earn extra cash by parlaying chemistry knowledge into lucrative "home
pharmaceuticals" business.

* If an 8:00 am class is required for your major, change your major.

* Boring lecture? Start a wave!

* College-level algebra: 5 returnable bottles = 1 delicious Ramen Noodle

* "I Phelta Thi" is *not* a real fraternity, except at state colleges.

* Remember - almost no one complains when you puke in a dumpster.

* Clever margin manipulation can turn a 4-page outline into a 100-page
senior essay.

* Football games were never meant to be observed by sober people.

* Don't think of it as sleeping with your professor -- think of it as
"acing Biology."

* In a pinch, milk can be used as a beer substitute in your breakfast

                          HIGH SCHOOL VS. COLLEGE

* In high school, you do homework. In college, you study.

* No food is allowed in the hall in high school. In college, food must be
provided at an event before students will come.

* In high school, you wear your backpack on one shoulder; in college, on

* In college, the professors can tell you the answer without looking at the
teacher's guide.

* In college, there are no bells or tardy slips.

* In high school, you have to live with your parents. In college, you get to
live with your friends.

* In college, you don't have to wait in a certain lunch line to be cool.

* Only nerds e-mailed in high school. Cool kids hadn't heard of it.

* In high school, you're told what classes to take. In college, you get to
choose; that is, as long as the classes don't conflict and you have the
prerequisites and the classes aren't closed and you've paid your tuition.

* In high school, if you screw up you can usually sweet-talk your way out of
it. In college, you're lucky to ever talk with the professor.

* In high school, fire drills are planned by the administration; in college,
by the drunk frat boys on their way home when the bars close.

* In college, any test consists of a larger percentage of your grade than
your high school final exams ever did.
