Spiders gonna work it out
Mid snarky comment, no doubt.
There's a University of Richmond revolution going on. On last week's episode of "Best Week Ever", Michael Aboud (one of the Modern Humorist guys) wore a UR t-shirt. How do I know it was a UR shirt and not one trumpeting some other "Richmond"? Because I have the same freakin' shirt (same font and all)!
Pardon me for thinking this is newsworthy, but unlike other schools (say, Harvard, NYU or UCLA), my alma mater doesn't get much pop culture media attention (aside from the backstory on "Commander in Chief"). Go Spiders.
UPDATE (1/27): Today I got the following e-mail from John:
Hey, Michah (sic). John Aboud here. I grew up in Richmond, but I didn't go to UR. Thanks for watchin'.
So, there you have it. Because of his wearing of the shirt on national TV, his humorous contribution to pop culture commentary, and his response to my e-mail, he is the inaugural member of the Micah World Cool People List.

I have that shirt, too. Can I be on "Best Week Ever"?
It's "Forty Thousand Dollar Per Year Tuition And Over" month on VH-1.
I'm surprised you didn't know.
I'll go ahead and make sure you get another copy of that memo.
dubin - Yes. Yes, you can.
spydrz - Thanks. My inbox has been cluttered lately and it must've gotten lost in the shuffle.
Man, I don't have that shirt. Sadly, after my tuition and expenses were paid in full, I found myself $10 short.
Granted I don't wear the shirt, but I contribute to pop culture commentary in a humorous manner, and I often respond to your e-mails. So why am I not a member of the Micah World Cool People List? Is it because I'm a Greaseball Dago Wop?
THSE - That sucks, man.
CB - No Italians need apply. Position's filled. Go away.
Ditto for the Irish.
what about puerto rican/irish?
this cat's got too much time, don'tcha think, to go googling himself on a reg basis.
i don't think he's that cool.
Actually, I e-mailed him asking about his Richmond connection. Who's got too much time on his hands now?
Boriquas are just fine by me. I got a thing for Latina women.
sorry, i'm not much of a woman.
But surely you can hook me up with some.
well, mi abuela is spoken for. lo siento.
