Candidates Stove and Cat present apologies


Candidates Stove and

Cat present apologies

To the Editor:

We would like to apologize for a breach of fair play and good taste by certain overzealous supporters of the campaign to elect the Stove and the Cat for UA president and vice-president. More specifically, we would like to apologize to Bryan Moser for a poster which stated "Bryan Moser is the Antichrist" and for another poster which depicted Bryan Moser and Mary Tai with red horns, a tail, and a pitchfork.

In fact, we are reasonably certain that Bryan Moser is not the antichrist. In addition, we would like to apologize for a poster alleging that Bryan Moser is Dean McBay's nephew.

This same overzealous group also vilely slandered the other official UA candidates, David Henry and Bill Herlan. We wish to apologize profusely for the poster depicting a burning Gumby char-<>


acter inside a stove with the caption "Gumby Flaming Again" and the headline "If You Can't Stand the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen."

We would also like to apologize for the poster depicting Gumby as a crazed, green sadist beating with a whip his bleeding, orange horse, Pokey. Please be advised that the sado-masochistic theme espoused in this poster is contrary to our doctrine of support for the rights of equine quadrupeds.
