    Default Students Offended By Mexican Buffet. Seriously.

    From funny blogger/journo Tim Blair:

    University of California's Stevenson College is apologising to its students for serving Mexican food during a science fiction event. In a letter sent out to students, the college apologised for having “a Mexican food buffet,” while also featuring spaceships and aliens.

    The college received complaints saying the combination was racist because of the association between Mexicans and illegal immigrants.

    After receiving complaints, Dr Carolyn Golz said that the event “demonstrated a cultural insensitivity on the part of the programme planners and, though it was an unintentional mistake, I recognise that this incident caused harm within our community and negatively impacted students.”

    At this point, bear in mind that several students, our fearless intellectuals of tomorrow, have felt a need to publicly articulate some version of the following, rather staggering idea: “Dear Sir or Madam, I have been negatively impacted by your insensitive buffet.”

    Who in their right mind would even make such a ridiculous connection between aliens and Mexicans? I just can't wrap my mind around this reasoning.

    Maybe they are taking the term "illegal aliens" literally? Obviously they no hablan ingles muy bien (feel free to correct my very rusty Spanish).

    And they say kids have no imagination these days. Don't college students have better things to do than sit around inventing reasons to be offended?

    ^I'm sure that picture is racist but I haven't got time to figure out how. I'm terribly offended nevertheless.

    I refuse to even think about this until we have solved our nationwide Jimmy Buffet problem.

    Probably wasn't even Mexican food - just the Americanized version. Free Jimmy Buffet!
