Worse/Better

Chief Clancy Wiggum is one of the best characters on The Simpsons, as seen in this very brief clip where he correctly assesses the dire situation that he is in and comes to a very…um…profound conclusion.

That phrase is so awesome, and applicable to so many comedic situations.

MSU-GF = GFCMSU

If you’re wondering about the name change at MSU-GF, it’s true: MSU-Great Falls will now be known as “Great Falls College Montana State University.” The comments on the KRTV Facebook page appear to be unanimous, and they are not kind, although some are pretty funny.

OK, now a multiple-choice pop quiz!

This name and “brand” change will

(a) increase enrollment at the school
(b) make students smarter or more employable
(d) make college more affordable
(d) none of the above

UPDATE: Now UGF is chiming in, saying that they are “disappointed” in the MSU-GF name change. Maybe the two schools can have some sort of a “naming rights” competition or contest…Argos versus the…um…COT-ters?

UPDATE, Friday Morning: Jack adds his thoughts in his weekly “Caught My Eye” feature: “The expense of making these changes must be pretty steep. Maybe the regents will chip in part of their salaries to pay for the changes?”
