Why is 'on the road' stupid? It's no more stupid than 'at western' and it's just as funny.

NO MORE ON THE ROAD PLEASE. Keep it at Western

stop whining, as if you would be able to tell the difference if it was made up or on the road or if someone at western actually said it

you do raise a good point about location. its not like quotes automatically become unfunny when the quote is heard beyond the boundaries of the university.

"Why is 'on the road' stupid?"

Probably because the site is called "Overheard at Western"? Just an idea though.

Western students are no different than students anywhere else. I challenge anyone to provide a characteristic that distinguishes westerners from others.If any of the quotes allegedly from western were actually from elsewhere, it wouldn't matter because they're funny. Therefore we should accept quotes based on their humour, not on their location.

It's ideas like that that made this site possible in the first place. The title clearly marks the quote as being from somewhere other than western so if you don't like it, don't read it. That's not hard, is it? But then, you do go to western so maybe that's the 'distinguishing characteristic' this site needed.

Wait... do we all not go to western?

Nope, we don't all go to Western. Waterlooser up the street here.

Quite frankly, if it's overheard by someone from Western, whether on location or not, and it's funny, then there's no reason to not post it.

If there were overheard at guelph, or laurier, or queens, or whatever, then I would criticize the On the Road posts too. But, since Overheard at Western is one of kind right now, and read by people at other schools, I think its good that we show that there is no Western monopoly on stupidity.

ditto that. it is refreshing to see that western is not singular in its funny and stupid comments. also since people tend to visit other schools, there is always the slight possibility that it was in fact a western student...

you silly people... who cares where the quotes are from, or even if they're all real? they're hilarious, and whenever read, make poeple feel better about their level of intelligence. i fully suppport "on the road"... we've all got a little UWO in us.

perhaps if there were enough contributors from other universities (including UWO's on the road comments) there could be another site started called "overheard at..." linked to on this page, for all the other universities. too much work, perhaps?
