You havechosen shit!
There you go, it’s official now. In our first issue, we asked you to submit yourfavorite name for our little English student paper. Well, you did, ten of youanyway. Now we don’t know if it’s because of the low turnout, or simplybecause of the awesomeness of our suggestions; the name
.Naturally, this made for quite a discussion at our paper meeting afterwards.After a heated debate and stone throwing, we agreed that we had to ignoreour general German tendency to completely ignore public votes, and simplydo it as Hannibal did when he stood at Carthage with no ships to carry himacross the Mediterranean: We found a way around it!You see,
turned out to be our favorite, but only after we already setthe name poll in motion. We thought it might be a little lame to just forgethe poll by participating ourselves, so instead we will combine the first twowinners: S.H.I.T. and <blank>. The result can be seen on the front page of this issue.
So who won the prize?
Someone famous. We had our own little lucky ferry come and do the actualdrawing of the winner. So Dennis basically numbered all submissions, putthe numbers on pieces of paper, and under the watchful eye of about half adozen people pulled out number 7.Congratulations number 7, you won. Oh, and your name is “DeborahLeibundgut”, in case you didn’t know.
Well, first of all people were amazed by the very existence of our new paper.Comments ranged from “Lustig!” to “Schmutzig!”. One professor is said tohave asked “Is there anything else but sex in it?”. Oh professor, you have sucha dirty mind!Secondly, right after the first release we started collecting sponsors forour paper. This of course works best with a paper that has come out morethan once already, but anyway we got very good feedback from there too.Nordlicht, the place we print at, have our first issue on display at the momentas a fine example of their work. SHEBODY, an all women fitness company inKassel, will sponsor us with a monthly contribution from next semester on.Thanks and praise to both for their help and support.
