The Eighth Wonder of the World

Well, well, well, how should I go about describing this. In the Ancient world you had 7 awe inspiring and majestic wonders created by man they were:
The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
The Statue of Zeus at Olympia
The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
The Colossus of Rhodes
The Lighthouse of Alexandria
Most of you are wondering what in the world are these. Sigh, Not everyone can have a magnificent mind like myself. Not only do you get great stories here, but learning as well. Now those above were considered to be the ancient wonders of the world because it was hard to believe man could create such works of art. Now let me tell you of the Eighth wonder of the world. Awe inspiring indeed, and yes created by man. One day in Taylor, Joe Muse, my roommate, was down stairs heading to the bathroom. An RA named Chris Starnes was also in the bathroom. Joe opened up the last stall in the bathroom to behold the Eighth wonder of the world. Joe could hardly believe what he was seeing. He opened the stall to be greeted by the largest turd in history. It was about 2 foot long, and as big around as the thick part of a baseball bat. Joe proclaimed," Chrysler". Chris ran over to look, and could not believe his eyes. Chris Starnes compared it to his arm, and the turd was bigger. Well, Joe's first thought was that Patrick has to see this. So, he drags Me, and Al down there and by that time, there are posters proclaiming come see the Eighth Wonder of the World. There are probably ten guys there by the time I arrive. I thought Joe had to be exaggerating when he told me how big it was. It was as he described it, the biggest damn turd in history. Well, my first instinct was to grab it like a scepter, but Joe & Al both beat me when I attempted to grab it. Everyone stood around shocked at the size of the thing. We were all pondering who could have passed something this big. Big Dave wasn't on campus at this time (Big Dave will get his own stories later), we came to the conclusion it had to be Anthony Hogan The Residence Director of Taylor. He was a big man probably 6'9, and probably close to 400 lbs. No one else in Taylor could have passed something that big. Well, the RA said he was going to have to flush it, and gave 4 attempts before realizing even with industrial strength toilets that thing was going no where. It was two days later when the janitor Wes, came in plunger in hand and defeated the mighty turd. It took him about an hour to fully dispose of it. And thus grew the legend of the Eighth wonder of the world.
