Dude, where’s my Oscar?

The Oscars are usually the year’s most prestigious and honored prize in mainstream cinema. But this year’s awards ceremony failed to recognize the truly unique and important films of the year, opting instead for such uninspired and banal films as Gladiator and Traffic.

STOPLIGHT: J Street worker spits before you swallow

He serves thousands of students a day in J Street. He’s been around for years. He is the one with the giant afro-mullet with six gold combs sticking out. He is Ty-foid Tyron Jennings. Jennings is better known to students as Ty-foid because he never washes his hands. Several disease outbreaks on campus have been […]

Dildo in my eye

I am shocked and appalled that The Mullet would print the word “dildo.” Being a feminist fundamentalist, I find dildos offensive and wish to say shame on you for printing the word dildo. The Mullet can maintain its journalistic integrity without printing dildo or other similarly offensive words. You do not see fit to print […]
