People in higher ed have gotten so humorless and stupid, it’s driving me nuts. A couple of students tried to play a prank. It’s completely innocent teenager stuff, not a tinge of anything remotely political. Fart cushion-type thing.
But God forbid anybody have a sense of humor about anything any longer. The campus threat team arrived, the students are being investigated, and professors are bleating on every corner about how threatened and unsafe they feel.
“What if these students end up shooting a classroom?” they inquire in tragic whispers. “These things tend to escalate!”
Buddy, if you are such a nervous wreck you freak out over a kid prank, I’m thinking you are the one likely to blow a gasket and shoot up our campus. Maybe you need to have a convo with the campus threat team.
