Curmudgeons Corner: Hither, Thither, and Yon

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s serious topics are recurring favorites… the pandemic and voter suppression laws. But of course they start out with some lighter topics… This time a discussion of things they had to read in high school many years ago, and how Sam’s old iPhone came back from the dead. Oh, and Ivan starts out by unleashing a torrent of profanities on Sam’s son Alex to chase him away. So fun for everyone!

Found While Cleaning: 1989 TJ High Senior Wills



I also found the 1988 version. If any of my old high school classmates out there want me to look up their entries, let me know. :-)


I, ABULSME (SAM M.), bequeath: Acad Advisors- a hat for Russ. Adad team- advice: don’t lose to Catoctin. Bunitsky- Juddies and Opus. Callahan- a better AP class. Connelly- lots of money. Crum – happy integrators. Dacey- a fire extinguisher. Garvey- crickets. Gordon- Posa. Krug- a test box. Long- some nerdness: use it well. McD.- no answers. Muldoons- a grunt. Posa- new nerds. Severn- Pascal progs.

As would make sense based on my high school experience, almost all of that relates to teachers, not fellow students. :-)
