Cannabis:Macalester :: Peas:Pods

Oh, Macalester College. Nothing like reinventing the wheel of '60s revolution over and over again until it becomes a mockery of a mockery of ridiculousness.

As the PiPress is reporting (in some awfully contrive pot-speak), Mac's own student org CHEEBA (Creating a Harmless Evironment to Enjoy Buds Appropriately) is hosting CHEEBAdanza on (what else?) April 20 (4/20...get it?). Oh, and just so that you do get it, the festivities begin at 4:20 p.m. Their agenda? The re-legalization of marijuana, what else?

What's best is that this gem of an event comes just hours before Mac's most famous alumnus, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, visits for the school's Springfest celebration. Will Kofi do a little tokie? (Ok, now I'm laying it on a bit too thick.) Mac's other most famous alumnus, the PeP's own Ilya, will certainly be partaking in the celebration.

I have to give Mac kudos for having some very industrious potheads, but really, Mac, where's the originality? I mean, maybe if CHEEBAdanza were being held at Bethel, then this would be a story. But Mac? Soooo typical.

And as a sidenote, has anyone ever considered the fact that maybe marijuana would already be "re-legalized" if its advocates didn't throw celebrations called CHEEBAdanza?

Is Cheeba Danza related to Tony?

I may actually attend. You know, just to see what it's like.

Tony Danza actually plugged CHEEBAdanza on his show the other day. No source to cite on that, though. You'll have to take my word for it.

Mandingo - By 4:22 p.m., you're going to be in the drum circle pulling twigs out of your hair and expounding on how the force exerting by an individual human being is less than the force exerted by a speck of dust on a ping pong ball. Bwah!
