Episode #4: “Throwing Up In The Cal State Horse’s Mouth”

EXT. CAMPUS, CAL STATE, LONG BEACH – DAY

 

A TV NEWS REPORTER files a live story.

REPORTER
We’re live from the Cal State Long
Beach campus, where thirteen students have vowed to continue their hunger strike, until university officials agree to reverse tuition hikes and roll back executive salaries.

PANTS passes by, eating a burrito.

REPORTER (CONT’D)
Excuse me, sir. What’s your opinion of the students’ hunger strike?
PANTS
I completely support the students’ hunger strike. As a matter of fact, I think more students should join them. Have you see the size of some of these students walking around campus? Maybe they wouldn’t have a problem with the cost of tuition, if they spent less money at the food court. Besides, what’s the cost of an education at one of these Cal State schools? It’s like Six-thousand bucks a year for a college education?! The taxpayers should go on a hunger strike until these idiots start appreciating how little they pay for one of the best educations in the country. Going on a hunger strike to protest the cost of a California education is worse than looking a gift horse in the mouth. It’s like throwing up in the Cal State horse’s mouth. Great. Now I don’t feel like finishing my burrito.
