  •  Really, you really believe that was HRable? (8+ / 0-)

    It actually came from a joke at the Corner in Charlottesville from, wait for it, a guy from Virginia Tech.

    Jesus fucking Christ on a pogo stick, you've been around here a little longer than to really believe that.

    Goes like this:

    Two guys in a restroom, one from UVA and one from Virginia Tech.  The UVA guy finishes and goes to leave, the VT guy says "you know, at Tech they teach us to wash our hands after we use the restroom"

    The UVA guy replies: "At Mr. Jefferson's University they teach us not to piss on our hands in the first place"

    If you think that is bad, having been enlisted in the Army and serving as a Naval officer, wait til I get to the Army/Navy game.  I got it going on both sides

    I think I've just about seen the epitome of ridiculousness here at dKos when we are now hide rating college rivalries.

    This isn't even HR abuse, it's too fucking ludicrous to even reach that level.

      I've heard it told about Alabama and Auburn, as well.

    •  It was a troll rating as farce (5+ / 0-)

      But really now, I think the oh so superior airs that ooze out of UVA grads when it comes to VA Tech speaks to the inner fear that Hokies get a better education....

      I actually chose VA Tech over UVA as a young pup because I felt more at home with the egalitarian atmosphere at VA Tech versus the Ivy League aspirations.  Never regretted it for one minute.

      •  Ok, I get it now (4+ / 0-)

        I thought you were serious.  And that joke is just as cutting on the ridiculousness of UVA snobbery as it is on VT "cretins"

        But I was honestly embarrassed, I thought I should do something really obscene to earn one of your donuts.  My comment was a little substandard.  I mean if I get a donut, I really want to earn it with something spectacularly trollish - that just seemed to be a liuttle mediocre, I can do much better!
