The Eighth Page

Phillipian Satire: Letter from the Editor

Cecelia Vieira, The Phillipian’s Executive Editor, thinks that this week’s penulti mate Top Headline (“Lodgeball”) is one of the dumbest and least funny things she’s ever read in The Eighth Page (which is saying a lot, because, although nascent, we’ve published a lot of dumb and unfunny things that she hasn’t enjoyed, like the Teaching Fellow article from last week, the Co-Presidential Candidates profile from the February 24 issue, and many others). “It’s not offensive, and it’s not inappropriate,” she told us after reading it, “so I can’t cut it out of the paper. If that’s the kind of thing you want to put in your section, I guess that’s your call.”

So to her, our boss, to you our reader, and to God our heavenly creator, we say this, once and for all: That is absolutely the kind of thing we want to put in our section.

With love,

The Editors.
