Dear OU (of Ohio),
I, along with my housemates and a few other concerned students in Oxford, would like to send our deepest condolences to your University as a whole. Last week it was brought to our attention that your unfortunate city of Athens, Ohio celebrated a Green Beer Day in an attempt to undermine one of the most epic, long-standing college drinking traditions in the country: Green Beer Day, founded in Oxford at Miami University in 1952. It is quite unfortunate that most of the undergraduate experiences are spent coming up with one lame party after the next. Green Beer Day? Could you have thought of anything less original? At least it was moved to Wednesday. As for the Fests, I’m sure those are a blast but they’re all named after sad numbers and boring streets. What is even more disappointing about your Green Beer Day is that you thought yours could be done better than ours. This is where I regret to inform you that your little party was nothing compared to what will be unfolding here in Oxford in the next few days. Not sure why this act of unoriginality came as a surprise, nothing more should be expected from a University on the decline. Point is last Wednesday meant nothing; it was a small blip on the radar of St. Paddy’s Day related festivities. Maybe next time you guys can hold a brainstorming session and come up with something that suits your style better, maybe something a little more trashy (Mill Fest, maybe?) We’ll forgive you this time and if you need help planning a rager that is on the level Green Beer Day then I’ll have my people get in touch with your people, just email me the trailer number.
Sincerely, The Concerned Students in Oxford
