Ah, that's right, the long-ignored Poetry Wednesday...
"They say there's a UVA Pep Band,
Who put themselves up on EBay.
If I could buy UVA's Pep Band,
I'd pay them to stop being gay!"*
-my friend Eileen, sung to the tune of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean"
Meanwhile, the UVA Pep Band has been disinvited from playing at football games, despite the fact that the UVA marching band isn't scheduled to begin operations until the 2004 season. So sad.
*Note: if it's okay for homosexuals to appropriate the word "gay" to mean something completely different than its former meaning, it's okay for other people to make the word "gay" mean something other than "happy" or "homosexual," though it's probably in poor taste.
