Well, we have the HS thread. We have the football team thread. Now for the cheerleaders. But we don’t have to be like typical cheerleaders. (You know, like they are in the movies. Ignoring anyone who isn’t a cheerleader, being down right mean to the ones that don’t make the squad, etc.)
So, let’s hear it for the SDMB Cheerleading Squad!!
Like, as if. I’m not talking to those loser chicks. They’re like, all grungy and into sci-fi and computers. Gag me.
So did you see this new cheerleading skirt I got? Isn’t it just, like, the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? But it makes my butt look fat, doesn’t it? C’mon, you can tell me the truth. My butt is just, like, as big as a truck. Oh look! Here comes Cindi!
Where is the popular, sexy, ditzy, peppy, captain of the squad? As captain of the football team, I think it would be proper for us to hook up! (What a line huh?) Homecoming is coming up and I need a date. So what do you say?
Aenea, thanks! No, I’m not a morning person, and I’m not a cheerleader. I just thought it made sense to have a cheerleading squad. Anyway, we don’t have to have one. Maybe we could just be really bitchy, tired, not-at-all-perky cheerleaders?
BlindFaithe, Athena, welcome to the squad. Now, which one of you wants to be the captain? winks at Bear_Nenno
I’m the cheerleader for the Faculty of Linguistics.
Chomsky! Chomsky! he’s our man!
If he can’t parse it, no one can!

Or that old favourite -
<i>Gimme a labial nasal! <b>/m/!</b>
Gimme an unvoiced palatal plosive! <b>/k/!</b>
Give me a voiced palatal plosive! <b>/g/!</b>
Give me a mid-high front-central vowel! <b>/I/!</b>
Give me a dental approximant! <b>/l/!</b>
Whattaya got? <b>MCGILL!</b>
Whattaya got? <b>MCGILL!</b></i>
Seeing as how I’ll be a frosh at the University of Chicago in the fall (39 days and counting! Whoo hoo!), I’ll chime in with the U of C’s “Scholarly Yell.” (Which, I might add, works well for the SDMB)

Who the hell are we cheering for?
