The Bacon wishes you a great summer

As you are finishing your finals, The Bacon wishes you luck. We also want you to have a great summer, even though you will be eagerly anticipating the first Bacon article in the fall.

Congratulations to the graduates, and good riddance to the transfers. We wish the best for Dr. Clark, Dr. Mahanes, and all of the other faculty and staff that will not be returning in the fall.

If you have an appetite for discussion, feel free to do so on The Bacon Forum this summer.

We'll see you in August.

I like how prospective students are now reading the Bacon.

Prospective students reading the Bacon is one of the funniest things I've ever considered.

After reading the Bacon will any prospective students actually come? Why would they? It is basically a negative rag filled with a few jokes and a lot of cheap shots at PBA. It would keep me away. But maybe every school has its own Bacon. Maybe so.

Swine Flu said...

Cheap shots at PBA!? Yeah, right! The Bacon loves PBA.

Swine Flu loves my sinuses. ACHOO!

Anonymous above me, I agree with you completely. I've been trying to fight this liberal "rag" ever since its inception over two years ago. I mean all it ever does is badmouth the school by celebrating loved professors, posting controversial issues for debate, displaying letters and interviews by administration for all to see, and insulting those addicted to caf cookies. I am outraged that this "newspaper" makes jokes about the unique personality of PBA and any mistakes people in power have made. These things are sacred! What's worse is that they do so without multiple spelling and grammar errors. What kind of a university publication is this? The commenters are the real heroes here, taking things way out of proportion, making false claims, and ruining the jokes made in these articles. It's an honorable task performed by real risk-takers who prefer to stay anonymous lest anyone call them out on what they say.

So, I say to any prospective students reading this: you have seen the horrors that make up Palm Beach Atlantic University. It is your responsibility to renounce your sense of humor and take the advice of these communists and not come here. Go off to any other college and only there will you find a perfect campus with no flaws or controversy. And I say to those who read the Onion and other terrorist publications, go as far away from the planet Earth as possible to avoid the evils of society. I hear the moon has vacancy.

Actually I mean the Anonymous above Swine Flu. That's the hero you should be heeding.

PBA is cool said...

Imagine that...

A Christian university with a sense of humor.

A Christian university where students use creativity and critical thinking.

If word gets out, all of the smart and creative Christians will want to attend PBA.

In fact, if you are a smart and creative Christian reading this now, don't hesitate to register for classes.

Lovejoy awaits.

Have a great summer, Baconites. And yes, the Bacon is a recruiting tool. Many among your following are not affiliated with the school, but have found it much more appealing since the inception of the Bacon.

I'll miss you namesake.

Lest you think PBA, which is a Christian university, has a lock on campus humor, look again.
Baylor University's NoZe Brotherhood (a secret society of spoofers) started all the fun in 1924 on the Baylor campus and publishes "The Rope" ( a spoof on the campus paper called "The Lariat"...sound familiar?)

Here's one a many pranks they pulled a few years ago: 5000 ping pong balls dropped on a speaker in chapel in 2003. You can find it on you tube.

And remember, no none Noze knows the no nonsense non-nose news that the Noze knows. You know?

I'm having a difficult time discerning whether Hamburger Hurricane is a brilliant satirist or a sorely misguided apologist for PBA (and conservatism in general).

You think the Bacon is liberal? Really? I suppose choosing Fruity Pebbles over Kellogg's Corn Flakes for breakfast is pretty liberal as well?

You could benefit from increased exposure to the outside world.

If you believe The Onion is a terrorist organization then it's probably time for you to seriously re-evaluate the life you have lived to date.

It's OK to step out of that bubble...

Henry Ford said...

Wow, ???. Just wow. It's readers like you that keep the comments section alive. If you didn't detect the dripping sarcasm in that post, you should go in for some factory repairs.

Jay-Z said...

Henry Ford said it, ???.

Big Guy said...

I am going to give ??? the benefit of the doubt and say they were REVERSE sarcasm-ing Hamburger Hurricane and they duped us all. That is the only thing I can imagine that allows me to continue to have faith in humanity...

Aldous Huxtable said...

Keep thinking that, Big Guy. I lost faith in humanity years ago.

outside observer said...

Does pba have a new president yet?

Will your school become more academic and reputable or continue its slide into the evangelical ghetto, losing students (and tuition money) all along the way?

Anonymous said...

Henry Ford et al.,

Before you suggest anyone go into the factory for repairs, perhaps you should revisit the comment sections of previous posts - believe it or not, there are people who actually perceive the Bacon as having a liberal bent with malevolent intentions.

The fact that I have difficulty determining who is being serious and who is satirizing speaks to the ridiculousness of it all!

Furthermore, the fact that you cannot comprehend how an individual might have trouble telling who is sincere and who is tongue-in-cheek in light of such previous posts suggests that you could use a little cognitive fine-tuning yourself...

Good work on the satire though!
