Mike Adams Hits Ga. Tech

Mike Adams is a columnist who writes almost exclusively about the liberal culture of colleges and universities. His column last week began a series on colleges to avoid if you are a conservative who cares about an education.

This week, Adams hits a school in my adopted hometown, Georgia Tech. I can't say it is unfair. Tech used to have a great reputation, but its decent into P.C. hell has been apparent from the news about the school off the sports page.

Adams also recommends Hillsdale College as a postive place to get an education. I know nothing about that school, but if I were looking for an undergraduate school, I would check it out. Then I would go to my undergraduate liberal arts college, but I'm not telling you what that is.

I attended Tech my freshman year and the first thing my English 1002 professor did was to tell us the name of this course was "Multiculturalism".

I lasted about 2 weeks before dropping.

Dude, that's Hillsdale, which was one of my son's top five picks for conservative economics, along with Auburn U, GMU and Beloit. He has friends he's met since he committed to Beloit that are Hillsdale grads and recommend it highly.

The problem is that it's easier and cheaper for the state Us to pump out lib-lemmings than it is to get kids through a conservative college, affordable or otherwise, which should say something about the number of conservatives to liberals in the US. One set of values holds and spreads, the other doesn't.

I'm sorry Anonymous. Let me make it up to you.

How do you keep Georgia Tech football players out of your yard?
Put up goal posts.

Why is Ga. Tech changing their football field over to artificial turf?
So the Homecoming Queen won't graze during the football game.

Hear about the Tech Students that were 2 hours late to class?
The esclator was stuck.

So There is a Wildcat fan, a Yellow Jacket fan and a Gator fan. They're checking in to a hotel. The Wildcat fan signs his name, John Doe Esq. The clerk asked what it meant and he said he was a lawyer. The Gator fan signed his name Jack Smith MD. Again the clerk asked what the initials meant. He said he was a doctor.
Then when the Yellow Jacket fan signed his name he signed Michael Johnson SI. The clerk, bewildered asked what SI meant. The Yellow Jacket fan looking annoyed said he majored in civil engineering!

How many Tech students does it take to screw in a light bulb?
One, but he gets 3 hours credit.

Where was O.J. hiding right before the famous white Bronco Chase?
On the Georgia Tech campus, because he figured that's the last place they'd look to find a football player.

How many Georgia Techies does it take to change a flat tire?
Just one . . . unless it's a blowout, then they all show up!

Two Tech grads were walking down the street when they came upon a dog lying on the sidewalk, licking and cleaning his groin like dogs do. The first Tech guy says to the second, "Boy, I wish I could do THAT." The second Tech guy replies, "Yeah, me too, but I wouldn't want to try it." The other Tech guy asks, "Why not?" "Because," the second Tech guy replies, "I'm afraid the dog might bite me."

"I'm afraid the dog might bite me"

A good friend of mine (Army wife) told me that joke 15 years ago, but when she told me, it was at a Ga Tech football game and it was the Ga bulldog walking out at halftime licking his, um... well, those round things, and the Ga Tech coach says to the Auburn State coach, "Man, oh man" (broooooad southern accent) "...I sure do wish I could do that, son"

And the other coach scratches his head and says, (big puzzled Southern drawl here) "But that dog would BITE you???"

I damn near died. Almost as good as the gorilla joke she told me. I can't believe she was the daughter of an Episcopal priest (this is where she got these jokes).
