He also said the debate team was " for total gaywads"
knocked their lunch trays out of their hands and left for football practice.

College Presidents can get away with anything. I go to a "religious affiliated" college and this year for our anual Christmas concert, Mary and Joseph were cropped out of the cover since they weren't as white as the Prez wanted. Fark him. anyway, i'm drunk so ignore spelling mistakes
2001-12-12 01:10:17 AM  
If he can't call marching band members f*gs, then the terrorist have... ah the hell with it.
2001-12-12 01:11:04 AM  
good lord, not gay students! gay students wanting to go to college! at my college! we can't be friendly! ahhhhhh! *head explodes*

My, that's an interesting, impartial website and I value the unbiased view of the issue they offer.
2001-12-12 01:11:16 AM  
Oh, oh, oh,....faggot dancing....

OK, I'll go read the article now.

I LOVE my town!

I go to University of Maryland at College Park, so I'm somewhat distanced, but give me a break!

The above post is supposed to be sung by Andy Gibb.

OK I'll admit the fake HTML tags aren't the funniest prop to use, but why does the filter take them out now? The sarchasm tag was really helpful sometimes.
2001-12-12 01:12:51 AM  
In all fairness, it IS a little faggy. I mean, you'd need to be a real Hershey Highwayman to get into that gayboy romping.

Any darkies?

"Institutions of higher learning should be the last place where intolerance is allowed to exist."

Ah the irony...Bad intolerance, bad!

I was in the marching band in school...I most certainly was not a fag! Sounds like this guy has issues....
2001-12-12 01:17:53 AM  
thats not a marching band at all...
it's a bunch of anamatronic bob saggets!
2001-12-12 01:18:03 AM  
In High School we called all the band fags, uhm, "band fags". And what they did was faggot dancing.

No controversy here.
2001-12-12 01:20:11 AM  
OK, so the President of that University is a jerk.

I just want to know which Fark reader follows that website to pick up tidbits like that? I mean, come on, fess up.

Dancing cigarettes? Oh yeah, it's a tobacco state.

I was laughing hysterically when I read this article..
2001-12-12 01:25:03 AM  
I was masturbating frantically.
2001-12-12 01:25:42 AM  
That was Nedry.

Sad, I know...
2001-12-12 01:26:00 AM  
Another story about the same guy...

Parents of music students at Bowie State University are demanding that the school's president be fired for saying marching band members were like "terrorists" after they did notperform their halftime show on the field at a home football game Sept. 22.

Freddy Freedom: You're a cigarette.

I hope someone finds the humor/refernce there.
2001-12-12 01:32:05 AM  
Goddamn right he should be fired!

Just cause a guy's in a band (one that marches, I guess) doesn't mean that he's gay! Christ, I was a band guy in High School. NO ONE ever called me "Band fag", although the fact that I'm about 6'6", 245 pounds, and look mean might have had something to do with that.

I agree with LadyAlexa... He's got issues. Maybe his dad came out of the closet when he was 14, or even worse, tried to cop a feel once or twice. lol

That may or may not have happened, but he certainly has a hatred of musicians and gay folks, doesn't he? What a sad, sad man.
2001-12-12 01:32:06 AM  
Just another close minded jackass in the world. I bet he was in a frat when he went to college. [rimshot for irony]

But seriously, this guy is an idiot.
I was in the marching band in high school. I dropped out because they were a bunch of fags.

Thank you folks, I'll be here all week.

we're here, we're queer
we're not going skiing

we're here, we're queer
we're not going skiing

funny how at times we get sensitive over gays, other times we call osama a faggot and that is funny.

2001-12-12 01:35:45 AM  
Band fags, band geeks, play-on
2001-12-12 01:37:24 AM  

Marching band members are not musicians, they're uhh, marching band members.
2001-12-12 01:38:16 AM  
So, um, did Maryland name a college after David Bowie, or is there now a state named Bowie, which has a university?
2001-12-12 01:38:31 AM  
As the President of Bowie state in Maryland we have to assume he has MUCH experience with faggots...

It must be sad when your state peaked 2 years after the revolutions and has been falling ever since.

Primus got the reference.

My work here is done

Haw haw- "BS"U. How appropriate.

There seem to be an awful lot of darkies in that there band picture. What is this, Africa?

I think this guy would do well at Bob Jones Univesity except for one small problem. Oh yes, he might have the antihomosexuality down straight, but it doesnt matter much since he is black. And we all know what "kind of people" arent very welcome at good ole BJ University.

Hehehehe BJ U.

Good ole BJ U, hehehehe.

Obviously these comments are out of line coming from the president of a university. But the general "band fag" stereotype is in fact pretty accurate (take all the shots at me you want people). Granted, there are always exceptions (of course, cause I was in marching band in high school.) I wouldn't have done it had I gone to school anywhere else though. We were pretty damn hardass. We had plenty of "band fags" but our director was a great guy and would laugh with us at all the other fruity bands who did gay shiat. People ask me why I didn't continue marching band in college. I said that it was all band fags. And it's the truth. It goes case by case, but a band fag is still a band fag. (End rant)
2001-12-12 02:19:22 AM  
Lucky all the band fags switched to chorus by their junior year.

Marching band doesn't mean you're a fag, it just means you don't have to pay to go to the football game, other than putting on a uniform and walking around in a certain way while making a feeble attempt at playing the crappy-ass music they gave to you. I hate marching band (as if you couldn't figure that out)....it's stupid, the only people that think they're any good are the band parents. Concert band is the shiznit.
2001-12-12 02:20:03 AM  
Now lets give him a benefit of a doubt. Perhaps he meant the original definition of faggot: A bundle of twigs, sticks, or branches bound together.
2001-12-12 02:21:42 AM  
I think it was the can of faux shaving cream. There was obviously a mechinisim[sp wtf?] that held the dino dna in place, it made that sound because as you twist the bottom the prongs that grip the tubes are released.

I like fags, they make me laugh, dance on fags, dance on.
2001-12-12 02:24:05 AM  
does anyone remember the movie the Further Adventures of Tennessee Buck? When the native biatches are rubbing that chic down with the oil, damn, her nipples could have dialed a phone.
2001-12-12 02:25:53 AM  
I'm gonna have to go with Nedry making the noise. I've always thought that and it cracked me up every time.
2001-12-12 02:26:02 AM  
I failed all my Faggot Dancing 101 classes in college...
