Proud to be at Harvard?

I was walking through Harvard Yard and saw the following t-shirt:

Q: What do Yale and poop have in common?

A: They’re Both #2

Apparently, these are the t-shirts being sold this year in advance of the big Harvard/Yale football game. But, come on, poop? Wouldn’t the word, shit, have been more effective? Poop makes it sounds like this is an elementary school joke.

So much for Ivy League.

    At least it’s not “Yale Sucks”

    as seen on Georgetown Law student:

    “Will Litigate for Credits”

    the joke is lost on me, it seems a bit crass.

    I think that’s about the saddest thing I’ve heard today. An Ivy League University reduced to using the word “poop” to insult another high ranked school.

    What has happened to Academia?

    Yeah, I’d have thought “crap” would’ve been the better choice personally. Maybe they weren’t allowed to use “shit” because it’s… oooh… a *swear word*! 😀
