Best Week Ever: Alyssa’s take on nutty nes

* Moore Bush Bashing- Filmmaker Michael Moore’s next project is currently focused on Hurricane Katrina and what he sees as the Bush administration’s lackadaisical response to the destruction of New Orleans. His camera’s eye was on the prowl and was just waiting for the next big disaster to happen so he could make a lot of money off of it. Moore wants to make this movie because it is said that, “It has all the elements that made ‘Fahrenheit 911’ such a powerful film … The political outrage, the human suffering, and the incredible footage.” Moore wasted no time concocting a letter to the president, accusing him of racism, of unfortunately having all our military in Iraq, and of staying on vacation while Hurricane Katrina destroyed some of the most prominent cities in the south. Bush claims that he couldn’t find his galoshes so he decided to stay where it was dry.

* Pledge Unconstitutional- A federal judge in California claimed that the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional. He then became full of himself and stated that he was going to issue an order to three California school districts to prohibit the daily reciting of the pledge. The U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled that the pledge’s reference to “one nation under God” violates children’s right to be “free from a coercive requirement to affirm God.” Karlton’s next move is to change the US currency because it states “in God we trust” on it. Many seem to think he is still sour at his fourth grade catholic school teacher, Sister Mary Rosetta, because she slapped him with a ruler…we’ll never know for sure.

* Fattest College- Imagine that the “freshman 15” lasted you throughout your whole college experience. That would really suck right? Well that is exactly what happened at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, which has been named the Number one fattest college in the United States by Men’s Fitness magazine. The Men’s Fitness magazine did a ranking of the fittest and fattest colleges, based on a survey they created of more than 10,000 university students from 660 campuses. Students were asked about their weight gain and their workout routines. They were also asked if they were involved in any type of campus sports or intramurals. In the end, Lafayette failed the test. We believe it’s because the college’s country fried chicken and mashed potatoes were too good too pass up when breakfast, lunch and dinner rolled around.
