Intern Refuses To Stop Wearing Company Lanyard

By David Colton

NEW YORK — A group of wealthy white finance associates were treated to an incredible networking opportunity during Monday happy hour at DELV3, a rooftop club/ Michelin-rated restaurant.

“Everyone was chilling, you know, normal stuff, just taking pictures of ourselves and the food and drinks,” said Kev Dowler, up-and-coming entrepreneur and part-time Joseph A. Bank employee.

“Then we saw that kid Roland show up with his lanyard still around his neck, and we knew he had the potential to be one of us.”

Kev and the Patagonia boys — or as they refer to themselves, the ‘gonia boys — decided to induct Roland into their ranks Monday night.

They held a brief-yet-brutal hazing ceremony in which Roland was forced to carry on a conversation for ten minutes without mentioning his internship.

“It’s an extensive process, that’s for sure,” Kev said as he blew fat clouds, “always separates the men from the boys. Luckily, he’ll never have to do that again.”

22-year-old Roland Wilkesbury is a nice boy from the Midwest. He likes road trips and dairy.  

Roland, who just finished his big first day at Lehman Brothers, couldn’t have been happier to find people who share his interests.

“So, this is the place to be, huh?” said Roland, who by the end of the evening remained the only person to dance to the sound of very loud dance music, “Look! Someone else is wearing a light blue button-down and jeans. Now’s my chance.”

Roland, who was never able to work his way up to the bar for a drink, said he was glad to see so many different types of cologne applied excessively in one place.

“I almost feel for the pathetic piece of human trash,” Dowler said, stopping intermittently to sip his $26 Dark & Stormy, “It’s clear to me he doesn’t know the common etiquette.”

Dowler revealed to the Gatekeeper team that a citywide ordinance, put into effect at some point around 2014, requires all white men between the ages of 21 and 24 to wear khakis and a ‘gonia at every bar, with the lanyard draped out of the khaki pocket — company logo visible.

GREEKTOWN – Early this morning, local Natty Light advocate and all-around savage Geoff Smalls made a decision that could alter the fashion world forever.

This morning, Geoff, whose name originally started with a ‘J’ but he got it changed, took advantage of the changing fall weather.

“It’s honestly dope how weather works,” explains Smalls, “I just love being able to express myself uniquely through what I wear.”

Geoff has made advancements to more than just his footwear though, also purchasing a few basketball jerseys to wear even in the winter.

“Yeah, my frat likes to keep the policy that every party is a jersey party,” explains Geoff, whose long hair somehow always looks wet, “it really ends up working out for us, because we all love sports!”

The shift from Sperry’s to Tims was not just a unique decision, but an informed one. Geoff’s brothers have all followed suit, and some have even started adding little personal touches, such as high white socks and backwards baseball hats.

“We’re really just glad we can express ourselves through what we wear,” said the fourth guy in 5 minutes, “we really feel that fashion is the most unique way of expressing yourself, no matter who you are.”

KYLE’S BACKYARD – Sources confirmed Tuesday morning that Bryce Clad, self-described anklet connoisseur and longboard advocate, actually knows how to play the guitar.

By ‘sources,’ of course, we mean Bryce, who gave an interview while simultaneously struggling through “Sweet Home Alabama”

“People always talk about it like it’s some huge thing,” explains Clad, ”and I’m just like, you think I don’t know that?”

Clad, who has been playing for approximately 1 year, knows such classics as “Seven Nation Army” and “Back in Black,” but usually just spends his time vaguely picking G and C chords.

“Yeah, I was super into biking for a while, but then my bike got stolen back, so I picked up this guitar I took from an old guy,” says Clad, whose age remains comically ambiguous.

Instead of playing concerts or practicing on his own, Bryce likes to combine the two in public.

“It’s pretty tight, really,” explains Clad, “I just bring my axe wherever I go. I call it a ‘Practoncert.’ Good one, right?

Bryce’s friends, Kyle and Dirk, haven’t spoken in four hours.

EDM enthusiast misinterprets enrollment drop

THE BLUE NOTE—Early this morning, local EDM advocator and MU student Thom Bulge expressed confusion about the drop in MU enrollment for 2016.

“I heard about the enrollment drop and god super psyched,” explains Thom, “I love hearing about new artists, and Enrollment is already one of my favorites.”

Bulge apparently thinks ‘Enrollment’ is a Progressive House side-project collaboration between DJ Lactaid and O.B.G.Y.N., two of the most well-known producers in the business.

“We’ve tried over and over again to explain to Thom that the enrollment drop is not sick,” explains Thom’s mother, Shauna Bulge, “but he just continues to insist that we just need to ‘wait for it,’ and I don’t even know what that means.

Somehow, even though he lived through the campus climate last fall, Bulge has no idea anything has changed at all.

“Honestly, I’m just pumped for Louis the Child to come dance in front of their computers again this month,” explains Bulge, “their drops are moderately sick.”

The Gatekeeper sat down with Bulge this week and explained to him that the enrollment drop was actually a drop in students attending MU, perpetuated by systematic oppression from positions of leadership and national media attention. Bulge, however, held constant to his stance, saying he “never even left Greektown,” because “why would he?”

COLUMBIA, MO – In tragic news this week, local frat deity Brad Legend was overtaken by a serious illness Tuesday. Witnesses to the scene were nearly speechless after watching Legend nearly collapse during the fraternity’s party rehearsal.

“It was like, terrible,” says fraternal associate Jack Janus, “he just kept talking about how sick he was, and we were like, ‘dude, do you need to go to the hospital?’”

The students responsible for saving Brad’s life say they rushed Legend to the hospital after he repeatedly shouted the word “sick” at increasing levels of volume.

“It was probably the honestly scariest moment of my life,” says Legend’s Girlfriend, Mia Fakesly, “I literally already couldn’t, and then Brad made me like actually not be able to even could.”

Fakesly could not be reached to clarify her comments.

Other members of the fraternity expressed empathy for Brad’s family, as well as the pledges who will have to endure months of catering to Brad’s every need.

“Honestly, I just really hope it doesn’t affect how the party goes on Saturday, because that shit is going to be hella lit,” says another fraternity member who didn’t remember his name, “I really hope and pray for Brad’s family as they endure this, I know what it’s like to be too sick for your own good.”

Brad was dismissed from Boone County Hospital the next day, and is now bedridden. Legend’s doctors say they “had no idea what was going on” and were “honestly pretty high during all of that… did we actually operate on that guy? He was fine.”
