S.O.S. Please!

by Tristan Whisenant ’14
Managing Editor

’m tired. There, I said it.  It’s late and I want to go to sleep. I have books to read, a trip to pack for, and way too many things to clean up.  But for the easy payment of an hour every month, you can save my grades and I from going extinct.  You see, the humor section has two managing editors:  Catherine Summa and I.  We are seniors; we have terminal, stage 3 senioritis.  But you might be able to save us! Yes, you- the freshman who is lost during passing period, the sophomore who is lost, the junior who might want to think about college.  I am tired of writing so many articles. I want to laugh at some other people’s jokes for a change.   (That’s not saying I laugh at my own jokes to make myself feel better about them.)  More food for thought:  Catherine and I will graduate in a few months.  That leaves two possible managing editor spots open for you!  We would definitely want someone who has written humor for us before to fill those, and would surely recommend budding pupils for the job.  So I hope this doesn’t come off for what it is: a desperate plea.  We really do have a great time in the humor section, and we would like you to come laugh with us.  Don’t be shy- and yes, it does fulfill the freshman year extra-curricular requirement.  If you would like a spot in this prestigious echelon of journalism, follow up with us at (email address to come).
