This Is A Picture Of An Asshole

I missed out on the annual "Area Teams Bound For State Knowledge Bowl" interview, so I had to content myself with Sam Walker's ungrammatical quote and this excellent pic.Sam and Kara ought to win some sort of Contrived Pose of the Year award for this shot. While Kara just barely manages to conceal her utter disdain for being forced to pose for the Brainerd Daily Disgrace (a feat in itself), Sam seems genuinely interested in the particular geography factoid he's discovered on an assuredly random page of whatever book was lying on the table. Further proof that he must be interested in this tidbit: it was enough to tear him away from the thrill of Erasmus of Christiandom (now in hardcover!).

And unless I am sorely mistaken, Sam appears to be wearing a homemade "Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt" T-shirt. I hope he won the "more-affected-by-Kurt-Vonnegut-Jr.'s-death-than-thou" award and it made up for all the money he spent on puff paints.

Of course it's always possible that this shirt was not homemade. Perhaps Sam, having heard about KV's recent injuries, went online and purchased the shirt in anticipation of having it ready to wear when the old man finally bit the dust. I would completely not put it past him.

P.S.: I am very happy with this post's title.

1. As I already stated, I never even said what I was quoted as saying, so you can blame the poor grammar on the reporter.
2. when you were gone this week, for several days there was a big message on the board in Gilbertson's room which said "DO YOU HAVE AN *?" This was pre-vonnegut-death, and a Vonnegut reference just didn't seem like Gilbertson's style, and eventually he told us a humorous anecdote which ened up explaining it was about the asterisks on the grade-sheet for his other classes.
3. It was a marker.
4. Fuck you.

Good to be back

Yeah vonnegut seems a little too dark for Gilby. More of a curious george kinda guy.
