Peterbd gave me a little history lesson re: the history of the fine educational institution Rowan University. All of this is the god's honest truth. "Merry Christmas to you." - Frank Sinatra
i met a guy yesterday who graduated from rowan university.
he was like "wanna here how rowan university came to be?"
and i was like "no"
and he was like "listen anyway"
and i was like "ok"
and he was like:
jerome rowan was a billionaire from somewhere in europe and was incredibly tired of living in europe.
so jerome left europe in 1921 and decided to come to america. "america doesn't have stoopid
poopy head people like in europe" said jerome aloud. when jerome arrived in new york,
he decided to move to new jersey because the rent in williamsburg was high even for the 1920s.
"i'm a fucking billionaire" said jerome. "i'm gonna conquer new jersey and show those
williamsburg hipsters who's boss." "but how you gonna do that big daddy" said jerome's lover (at
the time). "you don't know a damn thing about academics." "get outta my house!" said jerome.
"anybody who doesn't believe in my abilities and doesn't love everything about me, needs to
get out of my life. so get out!" jerome's lover (at the time) later moved to the west coast
and had a tragic end as the black dahlia.
then i was like "so what's the point of this story. how did rowan university come to be?"
and the guy was like "hush up. i'm just gettin to the good part"
jerome unfortunately became addicted to crack in 1923 and blew all his billions. crack was
expensive in the 1920's so this was an extremely possible outcome. "what am i gonna do?"
said jerome. "i blew all my billions and can no longer give the middle finger to those hipsters
by building a university in new jersey". but just then, someone heard him. this someone was
craig rowan. craig was so inspired by jerome's sermon that he vowed to help him build the university
of his dreams. "just stay off the rock dude" said craig. "can do" said jerome. "but what's the catch?"
"there's no catch" said craig. "just make sure to name it rowan university". "my 1st girlfriend's
name was rowan and i loved her alot." "can do" said jerome. the end
then i was like "so what's the moral of this story? what's so great about rowan university?"
and the guy was like "matt rowan is part of the rowan lineage"
and i was like "but who's lineage? jerome's, craig's or craig's 1st girlfriend whom he loved dearly?"
and the guy was like "that's the thing. nobody knows."
and i was like "interesting. that's hella crazy"
and the guy was like "yup. bye"
and i was like "bye"
