    Everyone knows the Capt don't mean no harm.

  2. David says:

    Guess you're just a good man.
    Well, you're all right.

  3. TJIC says:

    Awesome post.

    > My days of taking UWS Chief of Police Lisa A. Walter are certainly coming to a middle.

    ESPECIALLY love that line.

  4. Ken says:

    You might have liked it more if I had gotten the quote right in that draft.

    I need an editor.

  5. NLP says:

    For his next poster, I suggest Professor Miller use the phrase used by Star Trek fans: "Beam me up Scotty. There's no intelligent life down here."

  6. Al says:

    I aim to misbehave.

  7. randomscrub says:

    I just want to see their response to the "chain of command" quote… You want a violent quote that no one in their right mind would take literally? Here!

    "You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with 'til ya understand who's in ruttin' command here."

    I'm betting that one would end in handcuffs. And not the fun-time handcuffs (to reference an entirely different geeky IP)…

  8. raptros-v76 says:

    Ken, do you have any reason not to edit that quote now?

  9. Ken says:

    I have done so to add "seriously".

  10. raptros-v76 says:

    Aren't you missing a "not", though?

  11. randomscrub says:

    Yes, there is definitely a missing negative there…

  12. Ken says:

    The removal of the negative is deliberate; it's a paraphrase, with this way making sense.

  13. raptros-v76 says:

    So you do take her seriously? … I guess that makes sense, it's sort of how you should take a rusty nail seriously, even though it's probably useless.

  14. delurking says:

    He should put a set of posters up all at once:
    Hamlet (a relevant scene)
    Tom and Jerry (or roadrunner and coyote)
    Troops storming the beaches of Normandy (or a frame from the movie Gallipoli)
    Picture of an Olympic marksman shooting
    Picture of a SWAT team
    The A-Team (the old TV one, not the movie)
    The Charge of the Light Brigade (the poem, all text)
    Picture of a U-Wisconsin-Stout police officer

    See which ones get left up.

  15. bill. says:

    Yeah, but he's our theater professor.

  16. Dwight Brown says:

    "…you should take a rusty nail seriously"

    Drambuie is serious business.

  17. marco73 says:

    The professor should put up a poster of that lefty fantasy movie about the potential assasination of President Bush.
    Remember how all the egghead types defended the "artistic value" of that piece of garbage?
    The university administration will tie themselves in a pretzel defending keeping that poster up. Than after a few weeks, just change the president's name to Obama. Watch hilarity ensue.

  18. Nunya Bidness says:

    (That might be kind of a paraphrase by me.)

    1) It is an unfortunate sign of the times that it's a paraphrase and not the automatic response of everyone who has heard this

    2) Not the vaguest bit of surprising coming from the Berkeley of the Midwest. Remember, U-Mad is where all those free ride demanding teachers protesting in Wisconsin are graduating from.

  19. IgotBupkis, President, United Anarchist Society says:

    Through careful investigation, I succeeded in locating a picture of Ms. Walters in the performance of her job

  20. "This must be what going mad feels like."

  21. Ken says:

    Wayne, that could be the site slogan.

  22. Laura K says:

    Wow. Just. Wow. I don't know whether to laugh, cry or throw up in my mouth out of sheer rage.
    I'd go with "psychotic lowlife."…but as always Mal is right. That WOULD be "an insult to the psychotic lowlife community."

  23. Scott Jacobs says:

    "I'm policed by a powerful ugly creature…"

    "I cannot abide useless people."

  24. IgotBupkis, President, United Anarchist Society says:

    They are legion.

    Edumacacion FAIL

    'Nuff said about what some teachers are all about…

  25. Brother Phil says:

    I'd suggest that his next poster be the First Amendment, but that might get him hanged.

  26. mojo says:

    However, a big, hand-written sign on the door saying "Fuck You, Lisa" would be protected speech.

    Just a thought.
