Richard: "During a packed screening I attended on Saturday, a woman in the audience let out a loud wolf-whistle during one of the shirtless Jackman scenes, which got a big laugh from many audience members."
Chip: "When women are sexist it's considered cute and funny, but if I were to whistle at Nicole Kidman during that film I'd be looked at askance and considered a pervert. Why is this? I believe it has something to do with feminism. But the result is that I prefer to watch films at home, in my underwear, and whistle all I want at the pretty girls in them."
It's December 1, readers, which means it's almost Christmas, and the LC's goal this season is to consider various new products that might prove just right for someone on your list. First off is a new tobacco product: Camel Snus.
The boys, like many rural grad students, grew up dipping skoal and chewing tobacco ("We called it 'chaw.' "--Chip), but they were met with disapproving looks when they brought spitoons into their graduate seminars. This product seems perfect for them. The AP says:
"Snus – Swedish for tobacco, rhymes with "noose" – is a tiny, tea bag-like pouch of steam-pasteurized, smokeless tobacco to tuck between the cheek and gum. Aromatic to the user and undetectable to anyone else, it promises a hit of nicotine without the messy spitting associated with chewing tobacco. Just swallow the juice."
Chip: "I use snus when I'm teaching, but I still dip snuff back home, because it's tougher."
Today's University Daily Kansan weighs in on the year's best with it's "Top of the Hill" awards. And receiving the award for "Best Overall Bar" and "Best Bar Customer Service" is...Quinton's.
Chip: "It just feels really great to have your own personal feelings validated by the masses. I'd like to say thanks to God, for allowing it to be built and thrive; and thanks to myself, for going there a lot; and most of all thanks to the waitresses, for making this all possible and being so hot, day in and day out."
Richard: "The Replay was voted third in the 'Best Overall Bar' category but I wish it wasn't there at all, because I don't want ungraduates knowing about it."
