The co-ed dorm is "home to 900 students," but 1,000 were evacuated early this morning. Sounds like there was one Hell of a party in that co-ed dorm last night.

Fuggin' idiots. I told them not to get stoned when working in the crystal meth labs in the dorms.

Duuuude, I'm so hungry. Do you got any muchies? Hey, do you smell smoke? Mmmm, smoked ribs.

I love the smell of burning college students in the morning.

"The co-ed dormitory, which was built in 1968, is home to 900 students. University officials did not know how many students were in the building at the time of the fire."

"Dorm fire at Western Illinois University causes 1000 students to evacuate"

Well freaking duh, I dunno, 1000 maybe?

I just want to know who's bright idea it was to put the cafeteria on the 18th floor and the kitchen on the 19th.

Once there actually was a fire in my dorm, and out of the 1,300 people living there, probably 140 evacuated their bowels when they found out. Is that what the headliner was getting at?

Ahem, and now an obscure quote...
MD: You killed my wife, you murdered my b'aerns, you evacuated your bowels in my stew--
MB: I did'nae!
MD: Yes, you did! I had to throw have of it away.

Anyone who can tell me where that comes from has my eternal respect. (Hint: Shakespeare)

Ah, but which abridged version of MacBeth?

what a coincidence. There was a fire in one of our dorms the other day as well. Only it was caused by a microwave.

I was at Hartwick College staying at a dorm for some choral festival a few weeks ago. Apparently, they PULL the fire alarm and evacuate students every weekend, so it shouldn't really matter if students have to evacuate for a REAL fire.

BobNever: Fire alarms are a common occurance in dorms. However, these alarms are never the idea of the residence life departments (despite the common conception that RAs are saddistic bastards). Most of the time a student pulls the alarm for kicks.

At least this is the case at Loyola.
