CARNEY HALL — According to recent insider reports, Boston College’s only satire publication, The New England Classic, has officially run out of ideas. This revelation comes after an 11-year string of news stories, sketch videos, and football coach video games which some are calling “questionable work, at best.”
Yesterday, an anonymous source involved with the paper provided a statement on the matter, saying, “I dunno, the well’s just kinda run dry at this point. I mean, did you see that fake BC acceptance video we made a while back? Fucking gold. How do we top that?”
Local Boston College residents could not be happier with the news.
“Yeah, like, the NEC’s funny, I guess,” said sophomore Willy Dithers.“But have guys ever heard of The Black Sheep Online? Grade-A comedy at its finest.”
Dithers also praised The Heights’ annual satire issue The Depths, calling it “inspired.”
At press time, writers for The New England Classic were heard pitching a story about Father Leahy smoking some grass, or some shit like that.
