They’ve only been on the campus a short time but the elusive hammock monsters have caused enough havok to earn the reputation of being unwieldy vehicles for rest and relaxation. As all Yuba College students can attest it is easier to lie on the ground or nap in their cars between classes then to attempt to appease the fickle hammocks.
“We thought we’d go through another semester without hammocks,” an anonymous student told us. But that was before last week when our brave editor Randy McNicol took matters in his own hands and reasoned with the striped hammock by the administration building. It took a lot of effort but, he finally got it to stay in place, eventually sitting on it for minutes without interruption. It was through mixed martial arts and hammock whispering that the cloth like animal was finally coaxed into a prone surface.
“They’re really quite comfortable and gentle creatures if you give them a chance. The problem is they’re unaccustomed to our environment but they like to help people nap so now that they’ve been reassured we care about them it should be OK.” Randy said.
(No really the hammocks are back, they’re great! Enjoy!)
