Sadly, this could have been an actual story. Maybe some religious zealot will quote it as a source in a rail against racism (Jesse Jackson, this one''s for you).

I love egg rolls!

Too Bad it already has been a true story. University of Wisconsin-Madison was guilty of a similar story a couple of months ago.

The Onion course catalog bit is directly based on the University of Wisconson-Madison recruitment brochure incident. The name of the inserted student is the same in both stories.

I am a student at the UW-Madison.

This exact same incident did indeed happen. The Onion also happens to be based in Madison.

The names in fact are not the same.

OK granted I didn''t check it. But I remember the student was named Jamison. It is a family name so it stuck with me. If I remembered that wrongly then I guess it''s a sign of fast approaching senility :-D.

Well, I checked and the inserted student was Diallo Shabazz. I don''t know where I got Jamison, maybe I was drunk when I read the original article and it encoded wrong? In any case I apologize for not being more careful.
