Student excited to trade boring summer classes for boring summer job

A UF student has reportedly informed friends and family of his overwhelming excitement to be taking a position at a part-time job instead of having to take summer classes.

Bobby Whilmer, a 20-year-old history major, told a group of classmates last week that he was “so pumped” to be taking a job as a cashier at a local grocery store instead of having to enroll in the summer classes that so many of his peers had already signed up for.

“I really don’t think my gig could get much better,”

Student still working on summer body prays for one last cold front

In mid-January Sophomore Chris Gutierrez decided that he could postpone his workouts until later on in the year, when he could finally get the summer body he had been dreaming of. Then suddenly it was the middle of June and Gutierrez had gained 15 pounds.

“I don’t know what happened. I drank twice the amount of protein shakes that the athletes drink!”

“The assistant manager at TJ Maxx pulled me aside and told me the store only had silly mirrors. So I guess I didn’t actually look good in those XXL [...]
