College costs a lot of money. And sometimes the only way to cope with the financial burden it puts on students is to joke about it.
That’s what James Onuigbo did. The 21-year-old Bridgewater State University senior decided to poke fun at his school via Twitter. You see, every April his school hosts “Springfest,” which is a weeklong series of events that includes a comedy show.
Usually, Bridgewater State books a high-profile comic. As a student James thought he could pitch in and save his school some money by proposing to be the comic for this year’s edition.
“Hey @BridgeStateU don't spend money on a stand up comedian for Springfest this year I'll do it #VerySerious,” he tweeted. They replied minutes later with the tweet, “Okay, tell me a joke,” and sealed their fate. Onuigbo quickly followed up with a reply tweet of, “Financial aid.”
