Main Poop Analysis 2010

January 2011 In a year marked by the earthquake in Haiti, Elvis-impersonating Chilean miners and the end of Lost, we are reminded that in the greater scheme of things, it’s only POOP. But while Tea Partyers, one JetBlue flight attendant and Cee Lo explored new ways to express their ire and frustrations, we 29 POmpous and OPinionated patrons of the musical arts embraced the new era of civility in our annual rite of peaceful pontification. No POOP libel here. If…


John Stewart Poop ’10

It was a revolting year, the Teabagging nuts took the Congress thanks to a Supreme Court filled with Nazis like John Roberts, Sam Alito, Clarence Thomas (whose wife is a Teabagger) and Antonin Scalia. Kudos to the San Francisco Giants who won. Wherever my dad may be, I am sure he was smiling. He loved the Giants even long after they left Harlem. Maybe Aston Villa will win the premiership in England. Only one championship since 1910, thus making them…

John DeLaire Poop ’10

I don’t think I’ll make it this year. I think I’ve heard only one new thing Brian Wilson does Gershwin and Mom said if you don’t have anything nice to say.
