Son Adrift

Found this in an old copy of Herman Hesse’s Steppenwolf, bought from the Brooklyn College Library booksale room.

Paul Danced

These flyers were on every car parked in student housing at Southern Utah University.

1-800-Can’t-Spell

I was checking the mailbox today and found this on the ground. Apparently, someone before me found it just as amusing as I did. Virginia Tech graduation was two weeks ago and I really hope that this guy wasn’t one of my fellow graduates.

I am a professor who teaches large chemistry classes. I found this paper on desk in the back of the class on my way out of the room after a lecture. I looked at it and saw that it was a Spring Break budget with specified categories. Clearly this student had his/her mind on “chemistry” … Continued

I’m a librarian here in St. Paul. While going through some older books on our shelves, I found this gem. We immediately thought to share with Found! Love the part about Dale not getting any presents for Christmas.
