Turns out European Cows Went Extinct Some Time Ago, Everything is Horse Now

Mmmmm... ponies

Investigations into Europe's recent horse meat scandal has revealed that the majority of meat on the market is pretty much 100% horse since the total extinction of cows last year.

Farmers allegedly just started 'slipping it in' to their shipments to make up for the dead and dying cows that couldn't be eaten. When the cows had all died out and people still hadn't noticed a difference in their beef, they decided to keep on with it.

"Who knew people would be so picky about which dead animal they're eating," groaned Tesco farmer Ronan MacCauley, "Oh well."
Several farmers also admitted to feeding their horses leftover growth hormones from the cows, which 'beefs up' the horse meat, although in reality it caused several weird defects and several more morbidly obese horses.

An anonymous source implied to us that a select few farmers are keeping homeless people in their barns and 'beefing them up', just in case the horses all die too. "Everyone wins," they said, "the homeless want food, and so do the rest of us."

It was actually mass suicide

UVU Elections: What Students Are Saying

"I've definitely ruled out #avenue, because hashtags are tacky and stupid"
- Hannah A, sophomore

"Ignite's posters are really intense, which I like, and the guy in the middle looks like a young George Clooney"
- Andrea K, junior

Not really.
But good free stock photos are really hard to come by.
"Empower gave me free pizza... but Ignite gave me a Jamba Juice coupon, so I'm pretty conflicted over who to vote for right now"
- Timothy S, junior

"Yeah, I voted for Empower, I appreciate that they've been the least 'in-your-face' about campaigning"
- James E, freshman

"I've definitely decided who to vote for, but I think I need a few more people to come and tell me how to click the 'vote' button"
- Georgia P, senior

Students Make It Through Clubs Bazaar and Housing Fair With Minimal Casualties

"Umm, what just happened?"puzzled a dazed Clarissa Ellis as she finished her walk across UVU campus. "All I did was pass through that crowd of people, now look at me." Ellis had inexplicably gained a stack of pamphlets, a hat, a t-shirt, various armbands, candy and some sponsored lip balm.

UVU club ambassadors set up camp in the Hall of Flags on Wednesday and Thursday this week to lie in wait for any student foolish enough to make eye contact with them. Students who did so would then be bombarded with flyers, coaxed with cotton candy, and enticed to "spin the wheel.. you'll win a prize, I swear, just come closer, that's it."

Further down the hall, in the PE/LA vicinity was garrisoned with off-campus housing representatives, all trying to convince you that their apartments are not shitholes. However, the lack of candy and enticing prizes to lure in gullible students led to a less successful attack for the housing fair.

Students who made it through spent the rest of the day proudly wearing their battle scars in the form of colorful UVU hats and wristbands. However, some unfortunate pushovers were forced to actually join a club as a survival measure during the assault.

Salt Lake Woman Swears She Saw That Mummy's Hand Move

SALT LAKE CITY- While visiting the "Mummies of the World" exhibit at the Leonardo in Salt Lake, Alyssa McCorbett startled the fuck out of a room full of people as she leaped, screaming into her husband's arms claiming that a mummy's hand had just 'twitched'.

"It's alive! It's alive!" she shrieked, according to husband, Jordan McCorbett. "Everyone kind of stared at us after that, so I pretended not to know her," he said.

Mrs. McCorbett was apparently too shaken up to be interviewed, but swore to us that she is not insane and has no history of hallucination or paranoia. She did, according to her husband, have a "The Walking Dead" marathon the previous day, which may have been a factor in her experience.

When asked about the frequency of similar events at the exhibit, the exhibit director said "It's actually happened more often I or anyone else expected...kind of unnerving really..."

UPDATE: A custodial worker who wishes to remain anonymous sent the following message to us via e-mail: "Yeah, I put a tiny motor under that mummy's hand and turn it on when I feel like screwing with people. LOL"
