Can Parietal Rights Bring Happiness?
The second most serious problem currently facing our troubled
campuses is the problem of parietal rights. (The first most serious
problem of course is the recent outbreak of moult among sorority
Let us today look for answers to the parietal rights problem, for
that is the purpose of these columns: to analyze the dilemmas that vex
our colleges, to seek feasible solutions. I write them for the brewers of
Miller High Life Beer. In return they pay me money. That is the
American way. It has made this country great.
But I digress. A parietal right, as you know of course, is the right
of a student to keep a parietal in his room. A parietal, as you know of
course, is a small North American marsupial somewhat like a chip
munk in appearance but actually a species of fur-bearing herring
Naturally you all want to keep a parietal in your room. Not only1
are they endlessly cheerful alwavs
their little binaries but they're smart too. They're not as smart as
dogs of course, but they cub readily learn simple tricks like fetching
your slippers or parsing a sentence.
But the main reason you want a parietal is because they eat noth
ing but beer cans. I promise you, friends, you get yourself a healthy
adult parietal and you'll never again have to lug empties to the trash
barrel. And of course the better the beer can, the more he'll eat, which
of course accounts for the popularity of Miller High Life on every
campus. Obviously a beer as good as Miller is bound to come in a can'
of the same superb quality. And that's what Miller has-superb qual
ity. Also malt and hops and water and a marvelous brewing formula
that's been kept secret for generations. In fact, this formula is so secret !
that it's known only to the chief brewmaster and he is never allowed
to leave the brewery. So if you ever find yourself in Milwaukee, look
up his wife.
But I digress. A healthy adult parietal, I was saying, will eat his
t- , "l M'1Ier beer cans every day' However you drink your
Miller in bottles -as millions do, and no wonder, for who is not tempted
by such sparkling amber goodness in such crystal-clear bottles? Eh?
Vho is not?-if, I say, you drink your Miller in bottles, I have to tell
you that panetals won't help. They don't eat bottles. In fact, the only'
pet that does is the scaly bursar (taramna newjersua), but take my
advice: don't get one. The scaly bursar at best is a beast of sluggish
demeanor and uncertain temperament. Oh, sure, sometimes it will play!
a little Monopoly when it's In the mood, but mostly it just lays around'
grooming its addenda. Moreover, it's given to suddep fits of pique and
may tusk you without warning.
But I digress. Why, you ask, won't the dean let you keep a parish
tal in your room? I'll tell you why: the parietal, a nocturnal animaU
sleeps only by day. At night it is always awuke and-here'a the rub-
during its waking hours it utters a loud, guttural croak approximately
once every 2! j seconds, ft Hill in r! mmutltiM.f D.....L ft 1. i
well, naturally when r.v lm . .
down the corridors, every proctor In the dormitory leaps out of bod
and comes running. Last year alone mors than 30,000 of them wrs!

And so, dear friends, you see that the dean ion hare a point !
