The UDK, intent on stopping the 'rip his fucking head off' football chant, has come up with several new options (online today at www.kansan.com). They are quite creative:
"Rock Chalk Jayhawk KU!"
"Rock Chalk Jayhawk!'
"Make 'em weep!"
"Right between the eyes!"
Richard: "If we do change the chant, I hope we can at least keep a somewhat believable threat of violence. Maybe something like: 'Injure him just enough so that he can't play well.'"
Chip: "Or how's about: 'Look out for my beak, bitch!'"
Richard: "But I think the point is to downplay the profanity as well."
Chip: "Without profanity, a chant is meaningless and unmemorable."
Richard: "Actually, I sort of like the 'Make 'em weep' idea. Somehow it just makes me laugh to think of everyone yelling it."
Chip: "But 'Make those bitches weep' is much better, you have to admit."
Richard: "Oh, no question."
