So how tongue in cheek is Columbia, anyway?

My latest object of desire is a sweatshirt from Cafe Press, although I've heard their quality is terrible. It's a Mr. Snaffleburger design from Matazone, and has inscribed the satirical motto "CONFORM. CONSUME. OBEY." My only question is should I get one and hope people get the in-joke, or avoid it on the grounds that I don't need people getting the wrong impression too quickly?

It's considerations like this filling my days right now, since I can't make any travelling preparations until I get my housing assignment from Columbia, and have some idea how much stuff I actually need to take. Hopefully this will arrive in the next few days, but in the meantime I'm at a bit of a loss.

Oh, we're pretty intelligent, so I think that most would get the joke. Otherwise, they're going to think you're just an angry leftist, and they'll love you for it anyway.
You're saying I've got a realistic chance of masquerading as an angry leftist? My god, I can see how the other half lives! :-) Well, that's it. I'm ordering the shirt when next I can afford it!
you definitely sound like an angry leftist now!
Well, they always told me law school would be a catalyst for personal growth... ;)
I discovered Matazone my first year in college. I think you should go for the shirt :) It might do you some good. *laughs* Personal growth, eh? Maybe you'll be on my side someday!
being an angry leftist isn't so bad. oh wait, yes it is. i should know, as i AM one. okay, i'm not really that angry. just sort of miffed. but, still ...:) (btw, i like your page. what a lame comment to start off with. oh, well ...)
stupid, slow computer. damn you, double post ...
No problem, I've removed the double-post.
CafeShops shirts actually have pretty good quality, provided you wash them correctly. My Cardinal Ratzinger Fan Club sweater is holding up really well (and freaking out liberal theologians everywhere).
