1. Jan. 23rd, 2009: A year of hope and change…except for Darnall
In 2009, President Obama was inaugurated for his first term. Unfortunately, the first headline Hoya readers saw was not one of his historic entrance into office, but of the crap-tastic nature of Darnall’s plumbing. As we enter 2013, not much has changed: same president, same Darnall struggles.
2. Jan. 23rd, 2009: Enter Tobias Fünke
I’m sorry, but all I can think of is the episode of Arrested Development in which Tobias gets his full leather outfit to be a “leather daddy” … Tobias storming D.C. against Obama? Tobias for president?
3. Jan. 22nd, 1993: Wait … so what kind of coats?
Georgetown alumni Bill Clinton steps into office and we have one question: Why is the inauguration being compared to melted animal fats? (Schmaltz is Yiddish for rendered animal fat, usually chicken fat. Thank you, Urban Dictionary.)
4. Jan. 23rd, 1981: The year of fighting steeds
If you’re attending the inauguration this year, I would suggest taking a self-defense class to prepare yourself for possibility of having to fight off a stallion. I would like to point out that above this inauguration feature was an article about a 25,000-person march to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and, between those two beautiful and important posts, was the article “Hoya Pick-Up Line of the Week Award.” And yes, we will bringing this post back.
5. Jan. 19th, 1973: There are so many things wrong with this.
I don’t know about you guys, but I have some major issues with the phrase ” … a castrated Congress limping into a new session …” Well, here’s to a new Presidential term and a fully … uhh … “equipped” Congress.
Happy inauguration! I’m sure that 30 years in the future, our current staff will be berated for their word choices and out-of-context headlines, but until then, we will continue to be sassy and snarky, just for you.
