Last Saturday there was a disturbance in the Union. Several noise complaints were filed, and it’s clear that participants of this “event” will be wearing orange sometime soon. Rock ‘n’ Roll was again the culprit encouraging youths to express their feelings. Fighting for “causes.” Clearly this trend needs to stop. Our community should not have to put up with this reckless “Rocking Out.” Really people, THINK OF THE CHILDREN. Do we want them growing up with no sense of shame? When asked about the proceedings, one child responded, “I got Legos.” Is that the depth we’ve sunk to? We give children toys to get them to buy into the hypnotic persuasions of rock music. The horror doesn’t end with that devilry however. Witnesses confirm that former rock enthusiast, Tom Miller, led the charge by influencing decisions and providing useful feedback during the event. This man is infamous, but the adjacent picture says it all. Should you see this man, do not trust him. Report him immediately to the Thorn.

Sleep... what sleep?

Thursday, May 8th marked the date of the glorious student appreciation day put on by our very own Aramark Dining Center. The student participation numbers soared beyond the like of which we have never seen. While we sat down and waited for our delectable dinner, we had a chance to speak with a Rose-Hulman freshman Man, Chi Huen, or “Munchie.” “I didn’t even think this many students attended school here...” she stated inquisitively. Our food just then suddenly appeared on the plates before us! “Holy Cow! This is just like Hogwarts!”  Munchie exclaimed. We were all just wonderfully astonished. As the dinner went on, several students were reported charging their ID cards multiple times in fear that they were not paying enough for their meal. Overall, the Aramark Café and Lounge raked in approximately $15 million of revenue from last night’s event... which is rather mediocre at best. I would have thought they would have come out with at least $25 million with the entire community of Terre Haute knocking on the door to the student union. But, that was before I set my eyes on the fountain of eternal youth. After I saw a couple employes carting in a magnificent gleaming chocolate fountain, I thought I had won the treasured golden ticket. A mystical light was reflecting off the surface, and youth smiled at me as my hand grazed the glimmering surface.
