The art of conversation as is
practiced over the coffee cup of
every fraternity and sorority house

Badio Pest over the breakfast
Student—Ho-lium. I was up all
Puzzler—Same here. Didn’t get
a wink of sleep.
Pest—You birds have nothing on
me. I didn’t even snatch a nap in
Student—I was up with a case of
law. I had it bad. (Guffaws).
Pest—Law is tough, I’ll admit.
But it was static that had me up
all night. I couldn’t seem to get

with the same woman so .we secret
ly decided to kill each other. That
uight, just as he crept up to my
bedside and placed a razor against
my throat while I slept I also crept
up to him and lightly rested my
dagger against his throat. Just as

throats as we lay asleep, we both
snored, our Adam’s apple descended!
and we missed our strokes. “Kis
met-as Fatte will it” we both said
and went back to bed.
