Hmm, I know what I'm doing to Bucky this weekend... I'll be in my band uniform, too...
2001-11-20 08:33:27 AM  
Erm, Bucky the Badger that is.
2001-11-20 08:41:45 AM  
It pains me to say it...being a Buckeye...but:

"It's the only thing the Buckeyes have been able to beat this year"

ScooterTrash: Does that include Bellisari's drunk-driving rap??
2001-11-20 08:46:15 AM  
Damn Hawkeyes. Go Iowa State!
2001-11-20 08:48:40 AM  
I don't think he's off the hook, yet. Head Coach Jim Tressel said yesterday that he considered Bellisari the 4th string quarterback for this weekends game with Michigan.

The joke going around Ohio: Did you hear they're sending Steve Bellasari to Afghanistan? He can overthrow the Taliban!
2001-11-20 08:53:00 AM  
So, was it hard foam or inflated woman? Make up your damn mind!

Why did she wait 2 YEARS to file a suit, was she walking around with a broken neck that long?
2001-11-20 09:07:27 AM  
I think I know what happened.

Unidentified former mascot suddenly realized that her "Child Development" major would not get her a job. I mean, at the time, it was cool to be in all the same classes with the football players, and she had lots of great sex, but now she's paying for it.

Looking back, she feels stupid to have listened to the All-American linebacker's comments after the big win over Ivy League State. "Yeah, I belee chi'dren are the future, an' I wan'a give back to the c'munity."

Hey, we all make mistakes in college. My almost worthless Computer Science degree is proof of that. Cut her some slack. She's just trying to get hers.

"giant banana" ....that's what my date said last night
2001-11-20 09:11:56 AM  
I demand Foam Banana Control laws. The NFBA (National Foam Banana Association) is responsible for the proliferation of these dangerous weapons and must be held accountable for the havoc they've wreaked over the years.
2001-11-20 09:17:18 AM  
Yeah, since when has naughty, football-watching, stadium-monkey ever turned down a big "banana"?
2001-11-20 09:21:03 AM  
If I went to a football crazed school like OSU and found out that our mascot was a farking nut wearing a beanie, I jsut might go balistic with a banana too.
2001-11-20 09:24:03 AM  
"Woods said band members no longer swing the big banana while riding on one another's shoulders...He said he did not know whether the change in banana-swinging policy was a result of the 1999 incident."

I can't even read this without cracking up...
2001-11-20 09:24:39 AM  
ScooterTrash, I understand that the cop asked Bellisari to walk a straight line and he stumbled back five steps and fumbled his wallet.
2001-11-20 09:28:22 AM  
At least is wasn't a giant ceramic penis!
2001-11-20 09:29:06 AM  
Michael Palin: "You shot him! You shot him dead!"

John Cleese: "He was attacking me with a banana!"

Palin: "You told him to!"

Cleese: "I'm only doing me job! Someone has to teach you idiots how to defend yourselves against fresh fruit!"

Eric Idle: "And pointed sticks!"

Cleese: "Shut up!!"
2001-11-20 09:29:22 AM  
I've just got to email this URL to every one of my OSU, alumni/fan friends. They will all just absolutely crack up. Funny.
2001-11-20 09:37:10 AM  
I admit I emitted a little 'whoop' of joy upon hearing that Belli-sorry-ass got benched. I think the whole city breathed a sigh of contentment. I will caveat all that by saying my gawd it would SUCK being an OSU quarterback. Oh, the pressure.
2001-11-20 09:43:23 AM  
<sorry attempt at humor> If mascots don't get roughed up acting like asses then the terrorists HAVE ALREADY WON! </sorry attempt at humor>
2001-11-20 09:47:23 AM  
"It's not reasonable to strike a person with a banana so hard that they snap a vertebra."

That is the funniest thing I have heard so far today!
2001-11-20 09:58:21 AM  
Debaser Three cheers for worthless computer science degrees. Hip hip it time to start drinking yet?
2001-11-20 10:13:58 AM  
i don't know, i found the story quite appeeling in a foamy way.
2001-11-20 10:15:29 AM  
"The Oct. 30, 1999, incident began following an OSU touchdown... ...The suit was filed Oct. 26, 2001, in the Ohio Court of Claims-four days before the statute of limitations was due to expire-and asks for damages in excess of $25,000."

Kill all lawyers.
2001-11-20 10:15:46 AM  
I've got a giant foam filled banana in my pants
2001-11-20 10:39:02 AM  
Nice to know there are a few other Farkers here in Columbus.
2001-11-20 10:39:55 AM  
Shouldn't this have a "Ron Jeremy" tag...

off-topic: did anyone else hear Dennis Miller's greatest line of the night?

"The Philadelphia Eagles are flying high. Three of them in particular."
2001-11-20 10:56:10 AM  
FreddyFreedom: If you criminalize giant foam bananas, then only criminals will have giant foam bananas.
2001-11-20 11:08:46 AM  
Debaser: talk about worthless degrees, I went to Ohio State and got a degree in French (now I'll be popular with all of the farkers!!!). Imagine how far that will get you in the midwest.
2001-11-20 11:14:37 AM  
Habeas Farkus: I'm in Beavercreek if that makes you fell any better.
2001-11-20 11:15:07 AM  
Dogbone, you're a pawn of the giant foam banana industry!
2001-11-20 11:15:09 AM  
feel that is

2001-11-20 11:22:41 AM  
bananas, mascots, broken vertebra oh my! what the fark was a giant foam banana doing in a football game anyway?
2001-11-20 11:23:54 AM  
Giant foam bananas don't snap vertebrae. Band fags on piggyback snap vertebrae.
2001-11-20 11:31:53 AM  
Remember when Chris Eliot did his Banana song on Letterman?
Pure genius.
2001-11-20 11:32:02 AM  
There is only 1 logical reply to this

NEWBOMB thank you for not taking my puffer


This punch tastes funny??
2001-11-20 11:43:02 AM  
If giant foam bananas are outlawed, then only outlaws...(no that doesn't work).
2001-11-20 12:05:49 PM  
A few years back when Purdue came to Madison the Boilermaker got monkeypiles by the band, another tradition. When he got the head was cracked and so was the person is the suit's collarbone. Needless to say that was the last time the band monkey piled a mascot.
2001-11-20 12:14:44 PM  
I see Beefy-b has been watching "The Hollywood Knights."

" to find out how!"
2001-11-20 12:14:51 PM  
HAHAHA a bannana this is rich 20$ for the bannana!!!
2001-11-20 12:15:28 PM  
I hate to do this......

France, er Canada surrender to giant foam or inflated banana....

sorry guys
2001-11-20 12:21:54 PM  
2001-11-20 12:27:40 PM  
I have a Computer Science degree from the University of Iowa... there were no bananas involved.

And my degree wasn't worthless at all.
2001-11-20 12:32:02 PM  
I smacked a girl with my firm banana before, but it didn't snap a vertabrae. She's faking (don't women always fake it when bananas are involved?)
2001-11-20 12:47:20 PM  
She needs to get kicked in the junk. Now that's worth $25 grand.
2001-11-20 12:49:16 PM  

"I feel asleep!"

Sorry, had to take the shot...
Metal Gear is amusing, looking back...
2001-11-20 12:50:52 PM  
FreddyFreedom: You'll get my giant foam banana when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.
2001-11-20 12:52:06 PM  
Dammit, I know I closed that friggin' tag. I heard it click...
