So I graduated from McGill University with a B.A. in English Literature and History on June 3rd.
“I propose an actual orgy. We’ll get a hotel room near campus, some champagne, condoms, lube and make a night of it.”
It started eight months ago, with a post on the online community of /r/mcgill.
A newly created account, under the imaginative name of mcgillorgythrowaway (now deleted), made a text post asking the two thousand /r/mcgill members to join him in an orgy.
Last year, I wrote a satirical article for Leacock’s about how discriminatory Movember is.
This year, the McGill Daily published a serious article about how discriminatory Movember is.
Below, I have compiled a list of quotes–half of them are from my satire, the other half are from the serious Daily. Try and see if you can tell which are satire, and which are real.
“It depends on what your definition of ‘controversial’ is.” – Queen Arsem-O’Malley, coordinating editor of the McGill Daily
As a responsible McGill student and a morally good human being, you try to read McGill’s various publications. That means Leacock’s, as well as theTribune, the Daily, the Bull & Bear and so on. After all, student journalism is the most effective way to keep abreast of current events and issues relevant to your school and community. Also, it’s a good way to procrastinate without feeling too guilty.
