‘Snide Remarks’ Classic: ‘Crock of Ages’

Alt text

As mentioned last week, we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of “Snide Remarks” this year. So every Wednesday, we’ll post a link to a “classic” column from the archives, something that maybe hasn’t gotten much attention over the years but that is still good for a chuckle or two.

This week’s “Snide Remarks” Classic column is #21.5, “Crock of Ages,” intended for publication in The Daily Universe on Jan. 12, 1998 but never actually published (hence the .5 in the number). This one is very BYU-specific, and very Mormon-culture-specific, so it may not appeal to all readers. But if you fit the demographics, perhaps you will find it amusing. Perhaps you will also be mystified, as I was, that the communications department refused to let me publish it in the paper.
