Alison Krug (GRADUATING) and Kiana Cole (still needs to take science with a lab) are the writers of UNC’s premier (only!) satirical advice column. Results may vary.
You: What do I do now that my satirical writing partner-in-crime is just days away from graduating?
You Asked for It: We recently received a generously kind letter to the editor praising our dutiful work and posing the question — what will this community do for laughter when one of us graduates and one of us falls in love?
We’ve taken this letter as a prophecy of sorts, and though neither of us are falling in love (unless you count with Hinton James! Ha!), Alison is nearing the prophetic and aforementioned day of graduation. Now I‚ Kiana, am tasked with figuring out how to cope.
I’ll probably have less of the “Hey, how many jokes do you think I can make about sweet potatoes in YAFI today?” questions I was sure to get every Tuesday morning. Perhaps unknowingly, she has officially set a precedent of criteria for any future YAFI writer: the adoration of a similar starch, just to keep things interesting.
