OU makes fun of OSU for spelling, can’t spell

first_imgAfter the OSU-FSU game on Saturday a guy named Tony Beaulieu thought it would be funny to write a satirical piece on the Trail of Tears sign an OSU student made for College GameDay.That piece landed in the OU student newspaper (their O’Colly) and you can read it here. It opens like this:Oklahoma State University President V. Burns Hargis called it one of the greatest academic achievements in the history of the school Saturday after an offensive sign made by university students had no apparent spelling errors.“Despite the insensitive nature of the sign, this is an enormous acheivement [sic] for our students.” Hargis said in an official statement. “There are some medium-sized words in that sign, and none of them misspelled.”It goes on to include other fake quotes from folks associated with OSU and, I have to admit, is actually pretty funny.But the best part of the entire thing, by far, is that the school this student paper represents had an incredible grammatical gaffe on Saturday during the Louisiana Tech game.I cannot even begin to describe how giddy I was to see this. Especially after the student paper piece.I couldn’t love this more.
