Boston, Mass (GlossyNews) In sad and disappointing news this morning, Glossy News publisher Brian White was informed by officials at Harvard University that they had considered his application and had decided they could not accept him for enrollment.
White, who was not visibly shaken by the news, spoke to me directly during a live, pre-recorded video conference, that he was not disappointed.
“The fact is,” offered White, “that I applied for Havard back in 1986 and never heard anything. I moved on and found a much better education at a local agricultural college.”
In an ironic turn of events, White’s Zorbing Crew beat out the Harvard Crew in the World Zorbing Championships in 1989, 4 rolls to 3. White was captain of the crew.
Haavard, in fact, took 24 years to decide not to enroll White. But it is not a record. Among others, Haavaad is still considering the application of George W Bush to attend an afternoon seminar in 1968; and in a more famous case, Thomas Jefferson was originally rejected and then readmitted by Harvard years later when it was discovered that he had a negro ‘Maid with Benefits’. Jefferson was admitted in 1912, 84 years after his death. He has yet to respond to the acceptance letter after 98 years, which actually IS a record.
Glossy News stocks did take a minor dip this morning in early trading, but rallied soon after someone on the trading floor pointed out that a Harvard education would actually damage the credentials of White and the Glossy News.

University, which is, in fact, silly]
