Boots & Sabers in Gates Controversy: Well-Aimed

Well, it's a stretch, but hey...Owen deserves some attention.

In the middle of Iowahawk's latest offering, describing the Harvard/Gates situation from the point of view of another Harvard Asshole:

Sometimes it even comes at the hand of self-styled "peers" from D-list state ampersand institutions. One colleague recounted the tale of his restroom confrontation with a Texas A&M professor at a national academic conference last year. After relieving themselves at adjacent urinals, my colleague noticed the oaf leaving hastily for the plenary session and decided to gently point out his hygienic forgetfulness. "A Harvard man washes his hands after urinating," he said. "And an Aggie don't piss all over his hands, asshole," came the reply.

Like I said, it's a stretch. But it's good to know that Aggies can aim.
