Staff Editorial: Blue & Gray Staff prints April Fools issue as part of longstanding tradition
By THE BLUE AND GRAY PRESS EDITORIAL BOARD
Once a year, the editorial staff of The Blue & Gray Press releases an April Fool’s issue to the University of Mary Washington community. This has been a longstanding tradition that the editorial team has continued over the years.
While we at the Blue & Gray strive for an ethical, truthful and professional student newspaper, we believe it is important to express ourselves through satire, humor and exaggeration in this issue.
While these articles are published, they are not to be taken seriously or in any way as an accurate depiction of any aspects of our campus community.
The April Fool’s edition was originally designed to poke fun at organizations, events, people, landmarks and other aspects of our campus. It is our hope that we will provide our readers with a few laughs.
Every April Fool’s article contains a disclosure at the bottom of the article online for reference and at the bottom of each April Fools article in print. We hope that all can join us in celebrating the gift of laughter conveyed through such satirical articles. Thank you and we hope you enjoy.
