Have you ever sold bodily fluids for money? Do you have enough money for a Cup o' Noodles but not enough for a microwave? Do you have a system for wearing underwear for 10 days straight before washing it because you don't want to spend $2.50 on laundry? Then you, my friend, are a broke-ass college student. But don't worry too much because we want to help. We're teaming up with SALT, a free student debt resource, to give away $5,000 to the most broke-ass college student and that could be you. All you have to do is head over to the Broke-Ass Student Scholarship Page, write a short post about why you're the brokest ass, upload some pictures or videos showing how broke your ass is, and sit on your broke ass, hoping to be selected as the winner. Remember, humor and originality count in the judging so if you want the chance to get paid, make it funny!
Here's Streeter in a graduation cap to elaborate:
One week ago, we all heard about Henry Gribbohm, the New Hampshire man who lost his $2,600 life savings trying to win an X-Box in a (possibly rigged) carnival game, then ended up with a giant stuffed banana with dreadlocks as a consolation prize.
Upon hearing his absurd story, we at CollegeHumor declared that if this post got over 26,000 Facebook Likes, we would purchase the dreadlocks banana back from him for $2,600, and if the post topped 30,000 Likes, we'd also throw in the X-Box Kinect he was originally trying to win. Well, thanks to your incredible efforts (of being like "that's kind of funny I guess" and clicking a box), we blew past our 30,000 Likes goal, and this weekend, our own Streeter Seidell drove up to New England to meet Mr. Gribholm in person and make good on our promise.
Here's the dramatic conclusion to the Henry Gribholm Dreadlocks-Banana Saga, aka, Our Generation's Moon Landing:
So there you have it! Henry's got his money back (and is making a Boston Run donation and starting a college fund for his kids), and more importantly, we now have a giant Rasta Banana in our office forever. As Henry himself said, "Who's the dummy now?" indeed!
Don't answer that, commenters.
