Hard worked effeminate man needs a Zima
FLAGSTAFF, AZ - Toward the end of his shift last Friday, Russ Pritchard expressed to an associate his need for a weak, citrus-flavored alcoholic beverage to calm his nerves. "Seriously," said Pritchard, Lifestyles manager at the Flagstaff Linens N' Things, "Today has just been busy, busy, busy. I could really go for a Zima right now to chase the stressies away." Pritchard had reportedly spent the previous seven hours merchandising a new line of window treatments and providing customer service for "a bunch of jerkheads." He later fulfilled his desire at a local bar and grill where he drank and chatted with friend Sharise about her relationship struggles. The relaxing outing concluded after Russ's third Zima, when he accidentally said the word "penis" too loudly and decided he was "getting a little too silly."

Guy playing hackey sack falls down, pretends not to care
CAMPUS - The calm atmosphere of the Main Mall was disturbed yesterday when that guy who always plays hackey sack slipped on the dewy grass while trying to juggle with a friend. During his usual between-class antics, the long-haired underclassman overextended himself while reaching for a kick and fell on his ass. After sliding down the slope a few feet, he quickly jumped up and tried to laugh it off as if nothing happened. "Too bad I was just trying to make up for that totally bad hit you sent me," he explained to his hackey sack buddy. "I didn't want people to see how much you suck." But not even bold words and a laid-back attitude could hide the foot-long streak of muddy grass that stained his khaki shorts. He left the mall shortly thereafter to change and silently scold himself.
