News flash: 100 brains missing from the University of Texas! It’s OK though, university officials have the situation well in hand:
“We think somebody may have taken the brains, but we don’t know at all for sure,” psychology Professor Tim Schallert, co-curator of the collection, told the Austin American-Statesman"
One of the missing brains is thought to be that of Whitman, the infamous tower sniper.
We should be sympathetic to the university in this time of loss and not even think about making jokes.
They’ve lost their minds, you say?
Did one of them belong to Abby Normal?
I guess Kinky Friedman will have to add another verse to the song he did about his old college roommate The Ballad of Charles “Texas Tower” Whitman
I know some IRL living people like that. :o
What has this done to the average IQ of Texas?
I saw him once with Elvis Presley. Sniper or not man that guy could really yodel.
I can see the headline; “Brain Shortage in Texas”
No, this (both) threads were started today.
Now wait, I had to have a brain op a couple years ago and they assured me I got Meinhof’s brain! You mean they lied?
Wait … Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
What do you expect from a college that has to import brains?
“Now that brain that you gave me. Was it Hans Delbruck’s?”
“Ah! Very good. Would you mind telling me whose brain I DID put in?”
"Then you won’t be angry…?
“I will NOT be angry…”

"Look, Dean, I Tried to tell you! You can’t just lop off the top, yank out the goop, jam in some extra bits into what you call “unused ports”, shove them back in, and call them “educated”.
For one thing, these are human beings, not crappy Packard Bell towers! For another, just look out across this campus! Just Where the HELL would you have us even Begin!?"

They’ve been found!
No, wait! They’ve were destroyed 12 years ago!
Case of 100 missing brains in Texas takes an odd twist – L.A. Times, Dec. 3, 2014.
Could be worse. It could be raining…
I so wish Molly Ivins was alive to report this.
Sets reminder to zombify this thread next Halloween
I hadn’t realized the Texas education system was destroying minds in quite so literal a fashion.
