i love michigan state
The school that traditionally beats the University of Michigan in every sport. Also known as Final Four U.
Michigan State IS the university of Michigan
The school that every person from michigan goes to if they didn't make it into the university of michigan.
Every person from michigan applies to both schools, the difference is Michigan State students students receive rejection letters.
1) East Lansing
Diploma Factory (or the good ol' ELDF for short, or just plain 'El Doof!')
2) Rust Belt Tech (Rust Belt
as in 'dilapidated, plain, bland, flat, kicked-in, empty, also-rannish, has-been, the great fly-over
, bankrupt, bourgoise
, un-hip, inauthentic, wannabe, sycophantic
, pedestrian, top 40, et al.)
3) High School For Those Who Missed It The First Time (... and Second...and Third...and Fourth...and Fifth...et al.) - yes, like ALL large state universities, it feels that suburban, that cookie-cutter, just like...well...high school. Yahoo! Just think Muffy, I can be a jock
all over again and it will be like I haven't left Mommy and Daddy's house! Perpetual boy or girlhood!
4) The Big Block "S" - "S" which REALLY stands for "Safety" -as in "Safety School"; y'know, f'r instance, your 119th choice on your list of top 20 schools (ranked just after the Wayne County
Lock-Up and just before lawn-cutting service training).
A good university in East Lansing Michigan with lots of chicks (nice). But the pricks aren't so nice and they out-number the chicks 10 to 1. They are the most unbearable fans in college sports. Many of them are wanna be drunks who puke it up after smoking a joint. Oh and you may own UM in Basketball, but the football counts the most! That's 4 in a row lost to Michigan now!
Parody of the Michigan State fight song;
Puke your beer up,
beat your girl.
Set you couch on fire!
Smoke a joint,
and tip cop cars.
It's time to riot in East Lansing!
Choke on tear gas,
go to jail.
You're gonna loose it's true.
Fight Fight Rah Team Fight,
victory for Maze and Blue!
