Bad humor can’t survive recession

JGFitzgerald -- April 11th, 2009

A running gag at JMU: “College students can be really stupid.”
“That’s why we spend 12 percent of the state budget trying to make them smarter.”

Turns out it’s 10. (Enter an amount of taxes in the box near the bottom of this page.)

    Hopefully that is just your clever (?) lead for this post, and there isn’t really such a running gag. All of the faculty/staff that I have interacted with at JMU aren’t the type to pass around a joke about the stupidity of college students.

    No, it really happens. People joke. People sometimes repeat the same joke. Really.

    Re-Telling the same joke is standard procedure. Telling the same joke to the same people is a mistake.
