This week's pic taken from the Sep 21, 1973 edition of The Ubyssey. Caption reads, "HAS THE FABLED SUB ever set you climbing the walls?

Turns out Thomas was right, however." - Kiell Click Read More for biggies. ...

Regina John Deere

Yes I could've said "near and Deere", but I firmly believe that puns are the lowest form of humour. Have a good weekend! PS: Buildering Tuesdays have started up again at UBC. Email me if interested.
