What is it about jogging?

Statistically, is this possible? I’m fairly certain it’s because no one wants to admit he/she was in fact picking his/her nose/wedgie behind the... Read more »

And now you've gone too far

And now you've gone too far
Look, I like the song as much as anyone. It’s catchy as hell.  But this is something West Virginia University would do, not the University of Chicago.
