So, this Aggie alumnus is driving back to his alma mater passing by a field.
Out in the middle of it is a young guy, paddling a canoe.
The Aggie stops, leans on the fence and yells to the youngster "Hey, what are you doing?"
who replies that he is an Aggie student trying to get back to school before the semester starts.
The alumnus says "You know, it's guys like you that give us a bad name,
and if I knew how to swim I'd come in there and kick your butt."
