Can we take a joke? To paraphrase one legendary, postmodernist-approved middle east philosopher, college did not create the cis-genered man so that ze could have fun. Since the days of Lenin, Lennon, and Che, the aim of creation was for socialistkind to be put to the test through foosball, hacky sack and non-culturally appropriated forms of yoga. A socialist regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in socialism. There is no humor in socialism. There is no fun in socialism. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious. Socialism does not allow for trolling in the singles bars and is opposed to free speech, chalk, and social media. Socialism, however, allows campus rock climbing walls, sushi bars, and designer sundae stations.
