Ask Joe College

You Know Tom Perrotta

Hey Joe College,

Did you make up that name all by yourself, or did you just steal it from Tom Perrotta?

You know Tom Perrotta. He also wrot that book Election which was made into a pretty good movie starring Ferris Beuller and some Ho.

Joe College was a great book. You should read it, as should everyone.

Sincerely,
UniGuy3000!!!!

Dear UniGuy3000!!!!-

That’s a great name you’ve got there. Did you make it up all by yourself, or did you steal it from the side of a vacuum cleaner?

Yes, Tom Perotta (note the single R) wrote a book called Joe College. But he stole the title, too. See, before the book, there was actually a school called “St. Joe’s College.” And before that, when Joe Namath went to Alabama, he was probably called “Joe College.” Sure, St. Joe’s has been around for like 100 years, but so has Joe Namath.

And why are you up Tom Perotta’s ass? Wait a minute – Tom, is that you? That’s an underhanded way to promote your book. Perhaps the author of “Student Body Shots” will think of something similar…

Thanks for writing. This was Joe College saying, “Reese Witherspoon is my baby’s momma.”
