Comments of the Week: Georgetown Day must be blingeed

Vox was graced by a multitude of interesting comments this week. From heated discussions of the meaning of Catholicism to the news that the administration would barricade Georgetown’s largest celebration, the commentariat delivered.

Vox‘s glorious new editor took over this Monday. Aside from Vanya setting off a debate about the utility of blingees, typical expressed his concern about your blog overlords.

Vox and the Voice pride themselves on being able to come up with the big “gotcha” story that embarrasses a serious institution or group of students.

My question is, who watches the watchmen?

The Voice is too disorganized to subvert Georgetown as a whole. We have singular targets at a time. Really, there is very little direction at Leavey 424. Have you seen our office? (Also, Typical, we’ll be sure to add you to the masthead in the fall.)

This Tuesday, we all thought Georgetown Day would be marred by metal fences. Senioritis had this to say about the administration’s promise that they’ll be enough water inside the cage.

My favorite part of the email was the university making sure to let everyone know that there’s going to be water on the lawn. Basically, LOL YOU’RE ALL GOING TO BE EVEN MORE HAMMERED THAN USUAL BECAUSE WE’RE NOT LETTING YOU DRINK ON THE LAWN AND YOU’RE GONNA PREGAME… so stay safe and be hydrated, k?

Harvard Law had a cheeky suggestion for the undergraduate population of Georgetown.

Why don’t students just freeze their beverages of choice before entering the barriers and then wait patiently for the phase transition?

@Harvard Law had to remind the aforementioned commenter that ethanol has a very low freezing temperature.

Why don’t we ask FAQ Kids?

Later in the post, @Doug corrected Doug on his use of the phrase “just deserts.” Then @@Doug decided that Doug was actually right, to which @@@Doug replied

Seriously…? Desert = dry region composed primarily of cacti and sand, Dessert = scrumptious and delicious sweets. I promise it’s not that complicated. Here’s a helpful trick: you want more desSert because it’s yummy, so add an extra “s.” Moving on…

Finally, to the joyous news that Copley lawn would not be barricaded, Whatairrr had this to say of Vox‘s coverage.

Do you only have one picture of Georgetown Day? This is the at least the third time this one has made an appearance, and it’s not even blingeed THE HORROR

Apparently, yes, Mr. Whatairr. But we’ll get on the blingee-ing promptly. Nothing is safe from being blingeed on Vox.

  1. To he which hath no stomach for this shot,
    Let him depart; his GoCard in his hand,
    And flex dollars put into his account;
    We would not drink in that man’s company
    That fears his fellowship to rage with us.
    This day is call’d Georgetown Day.
    He that outlives this day, and survives his hangover,
    Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d,
    And rouse him at the name of Jack.
    He that shall graduate, and see old age,
    Will yearly on the vigil crush a Natty,
    And say ‘To-morrow is dear Georgetown Day.’
    And then produce an X-ray of his liver,
    And say ‘These wounds I had on Georgetown Day.’
    Alums forget; yet all shall be forgot,
    He won’t remember, but for facebook pics,
    What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
    Familiar in his mouth as household words-
    King Georgetown, Healy and Copley,
    Carroll and White, Gravenor and Walsh-
    Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
    This story shall Alums teach future Hoyas;
    And Georgetown Day shall ne’er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remembered-
    We few, we happy few, we band of Hoyas;
    For he to-day that drinks a beer with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition;
    And future generations blue and gray,
    Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That drank this year upon this Georgetown Day.

    Well I guess I can stop holding my breath now.
