Get Up, Stand Up

Bob Marley Rises From Grave to Free Frat Boys From Bonds of Oppression
The Onion
Wednesday October 5

Excerpt from this inspiring article on Bob Marley and frat boys that features a shouout to the 'ol alma mater:

"Marley's recordings, which originally raised awareness of the Rastafarian faith and the plight of underprivileged Jamaicans and Africans, have taken on an even deeper meaning as the Greek fraternal system, a maligned, misunderstood minority group itself, has fervently embraced the driving, soulful music.

Minutes after his resurrection, the dreadlocked spirit materialized in the backyard of Epsilon Iota, the Sigma Nu chapter of the College of William and Mary in Virginia. Radiating a transcendent aura, Marley addressed the college's recent campus-wide ban on bonfires.

"I appeared to I fraternity brothers to tell them be strong," said Marley, standing in front of hundreds of hooting fraternity members. "I say don't let dean of students, Henry Riegert, fool ya, or even try to school ya. We'll get that bonfire going in time for da mixer, mon. A fire a man's own business."

Man, the best shit always happens after you leave school. Somewhere an Abercrombie - clad Pika gently weeps.
