It has to do with Dartmouth from the point of view of a dog who is a mascot of a fraternity.

Meanwhile I thought of in reaction my high school classmate marsh McCall, Who was a writer for Conan iO’Brien and a writer producer for “just shoot me” and many other shows.  When he was hired for television after previously being a columnist for the Palo Alto Times Tribune I made a little chapbook from our high school newspaper his cartoons and sent it around.


He had a character  Named Shep. In one episode Shep was smoking a cigarette and the vice principal in charge of discipline saw him and said “ take that thing out of your mouth
