The University of Mississippi made a Gothic discovery this week. Ole Miss turned up one thousand (1000) dead bodies under its buildings.
The University of Mississippi Medical Center planned to build a parking garage east of the dental school, but testing in the area revealed the bodies, which are believed to have been patients at the Mississippi State Lunatic Asylum a century ago. none of the bodies are identified.
The competition to use this as a metaphor for any aspect of academic life has hereby commenced.
