How would your life be impacted if you had merely a cup of rice to live off of every day? Could you live without your extra hot, venti, double shot, white chocolate mocha, with extra whip during the harsh winter mornings? Challenge your views on hunger by attending the Oxfam Hunger Banquet on December 4th. During this banquet you will be assigned an income level and this income level will control everything from what you eat and how you eat it to where you are aloud to sit. Only 20% of those attending will receive a high income level and receive a full meal. So the question is: Where will your seat be at the banquet?
Although the banquet is free with a CWU student ID and $5 for general admission you still need a ticket to attend. You can purchase a ticket at the Wildcat Shop or http://www.cwu.edu/tickets. If you are not a student you can also get in free by donating a small bag of non-perishables however you are asked to RSVP by contacting Ashley Stubbs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The holidays are upon us, and we at Hype would just like to wish everyone safe travels and a very happy Thanksgiving. Also, because we know you’ll need something to talk about over dinner with your family besides how glad you are the quarter is nearly over, here are some very sophisticated Thanksgiving jokes:
What kind of key has legs and can’t open doors?
What happened when the turkey got into a fight?
He got the stuffing knocked out of him!
Why did the turkey cross the road?
Because the chicken got Thanksgiving off!
Why did the band hire a turkey as a drummer?
Because he had the drumsticks!
How do little Pilgrims draw pictures?
These really aren’t very sophisticated. If you tell them at Thanksgiving dinner your family will probably ask why you were reading these jokes instead of studying, but it’s your call. Have a great break, Wildcats!
