Go Syracuse University. It's Your Birthday.

Syracuse University is 137 year's old today. Really. it doesn't look at day over 112.

The city of Syracuse went all out for the institution that basically continues to justify its existence, "donated tubes of glitter, packages of crayons and dozens of other art supplies."

Wow, city of Syracuse, you really went all out. I bet it was you that sent me that jello mold for Hanukkah, huh? Wasn't even kosher jello. Pricks.

What else did the University get from its friends for this special occasion?
