Boulder

This struck a nerve with FLG.

On Georgetown's campus:
two grad students are comparing their undergraduate universities to Georgetown. One of them went to the University of Colorado-Boulder for undergrad.
Guy 1: "So how does it compare as far as diversity?"
Guy 2: "Oh, Boulder has a VERY diverse campus."
Guy 1: "Really?"
Guy 2: "Well, not racially, no."
 As long-time readers know, FLG spent a few semesters at the University of Colorado at Boulder, which he attended without having visited the campus.  He still remembers how shocked he was at how white the student body was.

He must say, however, that he was even more shocked when he learned that a classmate had only seen one movie in the theaters, FLG thinks it might have been E.T., because she lived three or four hours from the nearest movie theater.  She'd also never driven through a stoplight until her trip to Boulder.

I have a friend who teaches at Boulder. On the first day of the fall term, he'd just begun to outline the coming semester when a young woman in the front row raised her hand to interrupt.

"I have a question. What's your bathroom policy?"

Pause.

"Well, I generally leave the lid up," he replied.

(Cue general hilarity.)
