Paging Bill and Buzz

Surely you both have thoughts on this.

The University of Georgia received most everything administrators requested from the Georgia General Assembly this year, but have placed new restrictions on hiring employees and travel anyway, afraid that a weakening economy will hurt state revenue.

“Basically, everything that we were sort of expecting or hoping for was funded,” said Tim Burgess, UGA’s Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration.

UGA President Michael Adams issued a prepared statement of gratitude to elected officials.

“I want to thank the governor and our friends in the legislature for their support of the university and the system,” said Adams. “Despite a difficult set of funding issues, UGA projects were supported by people on all sides.”

The state legislature approved money for an average 2.5 percent pay raise for UGA employees.

  1. This is nothing new. The Legislature is filled with UGA grads who want free football tickets.

    One of these days our State will wake up and realize that Nerds rule the world and that The Georgia Institute of Technology can save our State from it’s backward ways.

    Buzz,

    This State will NEVER wake-up to that. See, first, they need to have their IQs raised…and that will take two things: 1) a couple hundred years to kill-off the deep-rooted infestation of ignorance that is embedded in the state legislature, and 2) you’re going to have to find the people with the higher IQs who want to mate with a UGA grad to raise the average IQ of the state. 🙂

    My wife graduated from UGA Law, so I am trying to do my part, Bill, but I am only one man.

    If she’s really hot, I might be willing to ‘take one for the team.’

    And yet, Bill, you still question why an intelligent 17 year old young man might want to attend our little school in Athens…

    Bill,

    They are hot in the sense that beer is good. It’s good for a few weeks, but then it goes bad (puts on weight, lives in a trailer, works as a cashier at Odd Lots). You really want to find something that ages well like a bottle of Remi Martin or a good wine.

  7. Icarus says:

    True, Bill. True.

    ’tis sad that men are all given two brains, but only enough blood to operate one at a time…

    And where are you going to find these gems, Doug? GT??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. GT women are like bad grapes. Sure they don’t age as noticeably as UGA women, but it’s hard to go down any more when you start at the bottom of the barrel.

    ” it’s hard to go down any more when you start at the bottom of the barrel.”

    What a fine example of eengrish, DK. As fine an example of English as Swisher Sweet is a fine cigar…of course, if that happens to be your fave (along with MD 20/20), my humblest of apologies to your heritage.

  10. Donkey Kong says:

    Thank you, Bill. I pride myself in use of layman vernacular.

    Personally, never had a Swisher Sweet, though I heard they have had a resurgence of popularity on GT’s campus, rivaled only by the revived craze for Ripple.

    “ITL,

    Yes, they are the masculine students at Tech.”

    …..right about now is when Larry the Cable Guy sez “Now that’s funny right there, I don’t care what nobody says.”……….
