The Lampoon Tries to be Athletic

Flyby Blog

Next Monday at 5 p.m. is comedy hour, courtesy of the Harvard Lampoon, a semi-secret Sorrento Square social organization that used to occasionally publish a so-called humor magazine.

According to the Boston Globe, members of the Lampoon have challenged the Harlem Globetrotters to a half-hour game of basketball on "a specially constructed court on Bow Street." If the Lampoon's track record against high-profile sports teams is any indication of how the alleged "humor masterminds" will fare, Monday's game is sure to be amusing. After suffering a crushing defeat against the Boston Bruins in a game of dodgeball last fall, we think it's safe to say that the only thing worse than the Lampoon's athleticism is the Lampoon's sense of humor. Best of luck to our friends down at 44 Bow Street!
