Crete, Nebraska's Doane College is catching some flack for a recruitment postcard sent to prospective students in California, and, personally, I think it's bullshit.
Bullshit?, you're thinking. That's a pretty strong word. Darn tootin', it is, but that's how I feel about the injustice of this situation -- strongly.
Allow me to allow CNN to describe the postcard for you:
One frame showed a student playing football for the Doane Tigers, with the caption: "Finally, a place where he could work toward the career of his choice. And also play the field." The next frame showed him talking to a group of attractive women and was captioned: "And play the field some more."
Now, I don't know much about comedy and, granted, it's no Family Circus, but I think it's pretty good stuff. Unfortunately, some of the recipients of the card -- Califaggots, as I like to call them -- complained to the school. They said, "It's sexist!" and "It objectifies women!" But probably with a lisp. Frankly, I'm surprised they were able to take their eyes off some little boy's ass long enough to read the card in the first place.
I think I speak for all of the world's people when I say that plenty of trim is exactly what you want in a college. That and awesome weed. And free cable. But mostly plenty of trim.
But it wasn't just sexism. Students and faculty from the college complained that the postcard was in poor taste considering that Doane football player Alan Branting, 19, was recently suspended and is awaiting trial on charges of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.
I mean, sure, and if you look hard enough, you'll see Bob Costas' face in the clouds.
I could understand the complaint if the postcard had said, for example, something like, "At Doane College, we believe that if there's grass on the field, you play ball. Whether they say no and cry or not."
