Donkeypen . . . A, lBOUT this page of the yearbook the bug of humor bites the Editor and the contagious rash spreads to the staff. Between giggles at the funny things they ' re going to put in the Donkeypen, they pound each other ' s back, their faces grow red, their voices shrill and crack. After several hilarious days of pre-humorous humor the Editor stops himself long enough to bring out a typewriter. He bites a laugh in two, spits out the butt of it in a weak simper, composes himself, and commands, " Write . . . write that posterity may chuckle. Create the belly-laughs of tomorrow. Bud, Geniuses! " The Muse raises her eyebrows, lifts high her skirts, shudders, and flees. Humor-flown the staff sits wild-eyed. Through the empty halls of their minds they pursue the elusive Muse. In vain they ponder, desperately groping for that gem of wit which only yesterday lay on the floor hysterically gasping. The poem, the satire, the cartoon, which they have horded all year, saving for this day, is gone. A gloom fills the office, all are grimly intent, no brow is unfurrowed, no mouth uplifted. Like the dance of Death is the slow clinking of typewriter keys. A dank macabre odor permeates the air. The great minds of the staff wrestle in the throes of creative passion. The curious eyes of the students flit by unnoticed, classes are forgotten, food is untouched, dates are unheeded, Life itself all but stops. At last the croaking voice of the Editor rends the air into shivering chunks, " Well, is it ready? " The eyes of the staff swing to him accusingly, the mist of unearthly dreams fade from their faces, they are silent. Finally the As- sociate Editor rises and the Editor cringes under his hard-eyed stare. At last with a sweep of his hand he begins, " We . . . we ... " He sinks to the floor sobbing while all stand in silent pity. At length he picks himself from the waste basket, head low, and mutters, " There is nothing. We cannot find the humor. " He collapses, and the Editor goes to the door and calls Napoleon, the janitor, who writes the Donkeypen.
