I didn't get a harrumph outta that guy

This guy is the living embodiment of Pat from Achewood. I want to grab his little Emo glasses and tread on them (that's probably banned by the Geneva Convention, too).
Actually, "The Faux Shirt Stain" did make me chuckle a bit.
[Just to be clear, I am being completely sarcastic when I say that hypothermia is funny.]
Oh, ok. Thanks for the clarification, since I was about to go into a panties-bunched-up huff and write a blogpost I thought was subtle and witty, like my idol of sly, nuanced humor, Gallagher.
Yo, yo, yo that guy goes to Johns Hopkins so the joke is on him! Har.
Didja see the Opinion Journal piece today by Pete Du(space)Pont on American Civic Literacy of college students?
Think tank goes to 50 colleges and universities of all stripes and tests thousands of freshmen and seniors on knowledge of American History, Government, America's place in the world, and the market economy. This week the report is out.
The report compares the (not really great anywhere) scores of the freshmen and seniors. The handy tables show where students am learning (#1 Rhodes College all the way in Memphis, where senior scores were up 11% over freshmen -- thank you, Teach!); and where students are not even learning, but forgetting (and #50 out of 50, was...ta-da! Johns Hopkins U., where the seniors had forgotten 7% of what they knew as frosh).
So back to the funny part: that sweetie pie Shawn McDonald is guar-an-teed to get stupider the longer he stays at his school, Agnewologist or not! Go ahead and dial BR-549. "Stupid!" -- and you see that's what he dislikes more than anything. Ha!
Oh, he'll be fixed...hmmm, has he already forgotten how to use a mug?
