MAD FIGS Digest #2-2: 2/26/98Gosh, I love the beginning of a new semester! Nobody ever assigns big projects until at least the second month, so I have lots of free time to sleep, watch movies, and, most importantly, UPDATE THE WEB PAGE!
2/26- Added MAD FIGS Photo Gallery! I have figured out how to use the scanner here, and the Animal has also sent me many historic photos. Check it out today!
Added a cool postcard from vinnardo
Updated Missions Section: I've finally finished this classic part of the webpage. Now you can read about ALL the MAD FIGS missions! (sort of)
Added photos all over the place (all are indexed at the photo gallery):
(I told you I have a lot of free time on my hands)
MAD FIGS NEWS:
PEPSI BOYCOTT ANNOUNCED
In an extremely disturbing move, Pepsi has released a new television commercial featuring... CANADIAN GEESE! This is the worst thing to happen to mass media since "Fly Away Home" was released! I have decided to stop drinking Pepsi products until the commercial is taken off the air, and I encourage everyone else to do the same. Maybe we can get Andrew to talk to the Pepsi guy for us...?

Captain Doyle: "Don't be so fast to thank me on this, Luger, because you're going to be naked on this one. It's on the line
for you. People are going to be watching. Now you blow it, you're going down. You screw up, you're going to be hung out to
dry. You drop the ball, you're going tobe left twisting in the wind. If you embarrass this department, your pants will be
dancing with FIGS. Is that clear?"
Luger: "Everything except for the dancing with FIGS part!"

"There is... no difference betweem the man that is cast out of the window by another, and the man who throws himself out of
it... that which determines the fall of the second case springs from within his own peculiar machine."
"What the fuck is up with declaring a day for yourself anyway? on principle it's just sketchy. oh and the other day my
russian culture prof said that peter the great was 'a fig of the antichrist' and i thought about it all day and i still have
no idea what that meant. i think i'm getting stupider by the second."
