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.
