It has come to our attention that the Bill in Support of the Halloween Meeting (you know, that one we sort of, vaguely endorsed about a week ago?) FAILED IN COMMITTEE! How this could possibly happen–even while the bill so explicitly stated that anyone who opposed it would be written off as a “nihilistic party pooper”–is simply baffling.

Maybe the senators didn’t want any goofy masks to obscure the effects of their austere countenances as beacons of order and incorruptible justice at a time when most of society succumbs to the temptations of sinful pagan revelry? Or maybe they’re all just humorless cheapskates. Either way, props to the author of the bill, Senator Eddie Nahabet, for walkin’ the walk–he brought candy to Wednesday’s meeting, anyway.

Strictly speaking, since the bill failed, the language identifying opponents as “nihilistic party poopers” was never adopted as the position of the ASUC.
