What about Assoc Prof Gene Masseth?

Those names weren't funny. They weren't funny at all. I read that entire article looking for funny names, and the best I got was Ben Johnson. There wasn't even a John Benson right after it.

someday the internet people are going to realize that gene masseth is not funny. you have to be a slack jawed, spit drooling yokel just to pronounce the stupid name in a manner that could remotely be considered a joke before pre-schoolers.

The NAMES of the students is what has Cornell U concerned? I'd be worried that theya re producing vaccous, self-absorbed idiots capabale of articulating the following:
""You could have this really amazing night, but if you didn't get a picture, it's like it didn't happen," said Ms. Parr, 22, a senior at Gettysburg, whose friends often order designer outfits from the Rent the Runway Web site because incessant documenting makes wearing anything more than twice taboo. "It's crazy how much pictures consume our lives. Everyone knows how to pose and how to hold your arm and which way is most flattering, and everyone wants the picture taken with their phone."

The best part of this article is where they mention Grindr as an app college students use to hook up.

Then again, this article does seem pretty fratty. So maybe they do use Grindr.

In the snow article shown above, Gene Masseth is one of the guys shoveling. (presumably his real name)
The story indicates the second man was named "Heywood Jablome" (a fake name).

A fark meme has sprung up around people laughing at the name "Gene Masseth", which wasn't the joke name. This is supposedly clever for ironic reasons or some such, but has mostly become tiresome.

This just in. A fistfight is in progress in downtown Springfield. Early reports indicate, and this is very preliminary, that one of the fighters is a giant lizard...

Do we have a source on this?... Uh huh... "a bunch of drunken frat boys." All right, I could use some names. "I.P. Freeley..."

well, the internet has two possible explanations:

the one, I'm the fool for thinking it's a crappy joke

the other, if you have a strong north dakota accent, it's supposed to sound like you're saying you ejaculated on yourself.

/ starting to think the former answer is correct, and the person who came up with the accent answer either fell for the trap, like me, or is a really clever troll

Oh, I was there for that one. The first answer is correct, and the person who came up with the accent answer was trying to keep the ball rolling. I personally didn't get a goddamn thing done that day.

A man goes to eat at a Thai restaurant. He asks for the specials. The waitress says "Red prik" - the man begins to snicker - "hung wang, yumkok bang" - the guy struggles to keep in his laughter - "plad rad prik and lik dat twat."

Redfaced and about to burst, he says "I'll have the pad thai."

"Would you like anything to drink?" the waitress asks.

"I'll have a ginger ale."

The waitress bursts into laughter, "that sounds like something naughty in Thai!"

I saw an interview with George Clooney where he said he was always amazed when he and Brad Pitt went to movie premiers (Ocean's movies, I presume), and when they went over to he crowd to spend some time with the people, all they were met with was outstretched arms holding cell phones. He said something like "if given the opportunity, wouldn't you want to shake Bard Pitt's hand, and say "Hi" rather than just have one of a million pictures of him standing on the red carpet?"

I do know Shanda Lier, Justin Case, and Dick Hertz. So not all fake names are fake.

I mean, Gene Masseth, that's obvious, but there could really be a Mike Litoris...
