Administration Unveils New Catchphrase for 2010

The Administration of The Western™ revealed the catchphrase they will be using incessantly during the upcoming year. With a pull of the cord, President Gary Ransdell dropped the banner unveiling the slogan "Money's All Spent."

Ransdell explained, "It's perfect -- it gives us an excuse for just about anything. Faculty and staff raises denied, again? Construction projects continuing and new ones being started? Can't afford basic office supplies for your department? Students wondering why they are paying so many mystery fees? Sorry, but 'Money's All Spent!' It doesn't really mean anything, but it conveys the message that you aren't getting any cash out of Wetherby and we're not going to bother explaining why. Plus, when Frankfort does cut our budget, it drives home the point that none of this is our fault."

To increase acceptance of the new catchphrase, Ransdell allocated emergency funds form the health insurance reserve fund to purchase and train an African Grey Parrot to perch on Deborah Wilkins' shoulder. Commented the parrot, "Money's all spent! Rawk! Money's all spent!"

Rejected phrases include:

  • Contingencies Are a Bitch
  • Outlook Not So Good
  • We Know What’s Best
  • My Sources Say No
  • Back To Your Office, Poindexter
  • Reply Hazy, Try Again
  • Synergistically Applying Critical Thinking Rubrics to Enhance Monetary Engagement to Heuristically Upswing Hermeneutic Tuition Engagement
  • Whatchoo Talkin’ About, Willis?
