Cool shit for Politics students to buy

Politics students have it easy. I know, I am one. You can pretty much get through first year POLS without buying the text books, going to lectures, being totally inebriated when you do turn up, suffering from multiple STI’s and still pass with a decent grade.

All the more reason to go to Vic books, pick up a course related costs claim form, and get all the $1000 you are allowed to claim. I have some great ways of spending the money too. Of course you could spend it on beer, hookers, and food at Vickies/The bar formerly known as Eastside. But then you wouldn’t have much more to show for you’re first trimester away from the folks than syphilis scars, cirrhosis of the liver, and food poisoning.

Here are some great products that you can spend your hard earned mullah on.

But please please please do not wear a shirt like the one to the right .

26572che-guevara-posters.jpgUnless you can answer the following five questions without looking them up (if you are currently wearing one and can’t answer the questions please report to the Salient office on Thursday night for pizza and a spanking).

1) What is his name?

2) Where is he from?

3) What were his political beliefs?

4) Name a movie about him.

5) Why is this image so famous, and why is that ironic?

Happy spending!

In related breaking news:

A new scientific study has directly correlated the phenomena that we have seemingly always know. People who wear Che Guevara shirts, that is a shirt that depicts the iconic socialist in a large print, are mentally inferior than the average person who does not wear a Che Guevara shirt.

This result comes after years of pain staking research from the Hans Gruber Institute of Statistics. Part of the problem was that most people who wore the revolutionary shirt, did not actually know who Che Guevara was, where he was from, or what he believed in.

Dr. P. Manglethwaite of the Hans Gruber Institute said at a press conference today: “I used to play this game when we were at University where we would sit in a crowded area and ask passers by who happened to be wearing Che shirts if they knew who he was. Only about 17% of people knew who he was. This research we have released today goes to prove, with scientific fact that that reporter over there is an imbecile.”

  1. What’s with all the huge gaps? Gappy.

  2. Anyone wearing a Che shirt should also have to name his ministerial portfolio in Castro’s first cabinet.

  3. Terryeo says:

    They should also have to outline the differences in Mao’s revolutionary theory and Che’s revolutionary theory.

    And then they should describe Che’s inception of Guissimo.

  4. You can’t buy the Create a Commie in NZ! (They only deliver US)
    How silly, what am I supposed to get my mother for her birthday now?

  5. Kerry says:

    you mean it’s about politics, not coffee roasting?
    man, all those wasted hours in Fidel’s, and I never knew…..

    (for Jackson: this is heavily ironic and sarcastic, just in case you thought I was playing this straight…)
