Texas A&M Aggie Joke Of The Day.

Aggie Is As Aggie Does-

Of those who read WILLisms.com with any sort of regularity, I know the Big XII is very well represented. There are Sooners and Longhorns and Aggies and just about everything else who chime in anytime I post anything about The University of Texas.

So, before I post this, know that this is all in good fun. And Aggies are good people.

Also know that the Aggie Joke Of The Day will not become any permanent sort of feature on WILLisms.com. This, however, is just too good to pass up.

The best Aggie jokes are often not really jokes at all. They just... are.

I present--- Loupot's Bookstore, in College Station, Texas (via the SciGuy):

Boarding up the windows, from the inside. Many, many, many miles inland. Hmm, yeah.

Aggie engineering at its finest.

I guess the boards stayed dry, at least. And all of those terrible looters would have been deterred from plundering all of the wonderful maroon-colored gloriousness within.

Something like that.

UPDATE:

More Hurricane Aggie joke fun.

On the other hand it does prevent the broken glass from exploding into the store if the owner wants to keep it running.

Another sad example of the Unbroken Window Fallacy...

As an Aggie, I hated the bookstores. As is the case probably everywhere, they sell you a new book for $80.00 and if - and I stress IF - they buy your book back because the class ciriculum hasn't changed book editions they may pay you $10.00. But most of the time they change the edition number on the spine of the book and don't buy the old ones back.

Ok, so I'm a little off-topic but the bookstores are evil morons and this post shows half of that.

On the other hand, if there's any place you don't want the inside to get wet, it's a bookstore.

You know, there's only 2 or 3 aggie jokes.

The rest are true...

They missed a pane. :o)

You know, a hurricane was kinda supposed to come through that weekend. However, I do agree that fun should be made of people who fled College Station for the weekend.

Posted by: Seth at September 27, 2005 09:24 PM

It's not the fleeing so much as the boarding up from the inside.

Posted by: Will Franklin at September 27, 2005 09:26 PM

Oh; I didn't notice that (wasn't paying too close attention). Yeah, apparently this thing's popular enough to be on Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/katrina/photos/aggie.asp

Hey - just wanted to give you the heads up on the UT Vmag's blog...behind-the-scenes of the behind-the-scenes mag. It won't be "giving away the farm" by any means...but there will be photos, clips and commentary from all of us here who are getting the access and what we get to see. It's really cool stuff. We are seriously with Mack nd the guys in the locker room, on the plane to Ohio State, everywhere. We'd love to get in your blog roll if possible...just let us know. Take care.
