Earlier this week, UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert “Canuck Bobbby” Birgeneau announced a $113 million dollar donation to the campus [1]. The grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation [2] is the largest gift in the history of the campus. The university claims that the money will fund 100 endowed chairs across the campus. However, using our leet reporting skillz, the Clog has uncovered the real programs on which the money will be spent. A breakdown of the gift:

* $33 million to hire Rudy Giuliani as a consultant to work on ways to strengthen the Memorial Stadium fence.

* $14 million in emergency spending to help Beetle fight his crippling addiction to caring about the ASUC.

* $23 million to buy Jeff Tedford a solid-gold golf cart to ride around on during football games.

* $100 billion to take over the world. OK, so we’re a little short. – according to Christine
