Some Things I Learned This Year…

I’m sure many of you checked your email yesterday and received this delightful gem from Penn State:

Here’s the important things I learned from this video:

  • 0:14 – This professor finally made friends this year
  • 0:18 – “I’ll put the values of Penn State against any university in this country”. NUMBER 1 PARTY SCHOOL! WOOO!
  • 0:27 – This guy’s a level 68 mage in his online fantasy world. Hail!
  • 0:38 – How long have you been working here? You JUST decided it was good to be here? I don’t think that’s the message the video is trying to convey…
  • 0:48 – I always feel like I can completely relate to Graham Spanier. He seems like a normal guy, just like me.
  • 1:12 – I don’t know who you are, but you’re my hero
  • 1:19 – You can tell she’s serious about it, because she’s wearing a cute pink scarf. In the library
  • 1:23 – “High” note. ‘Nuff said
  • 1:25 – I think cookie-post-office-man and the last guy should get together. They could have some special cookies and hit a real “high” note
  • 1:26 – Why would writing reference letters EVER be something to get excited about?!?
  • 2:02 – THE man. Gotta love the Dean

Hope you enjoyed the video as much as I did. Where did they get some of these people? And why wasn’t JoePa featured? I know what I’m looking forward to in 2010: more uplifting video messages orchestrated by Graham Spanier which fully capture the spirit and very essence of Penn State. Let me hear what you’re looking forward to in the comments.

The Future of Footwear Comes to Penn State

A new fad has hit Penn State, one that threatens to be greater than Pogs, Pokemon, and Yo-yos combined. They make you feel like Buzz Aldrin, and make Sketchers’ ShapeUps look conservative.  I’m referring, of course, to Kangoo Jumps (KJs). Already rumored to be featured on the Richard Simmons comeback exercise video (full disclosure: the author started this rumor…right now), Kangoo Jumps are taking State College by storm, in all their goofy glory.
