Wahoo Wits Poke Fun at Housemoms

Cavalier Daily article on student opinion about having "house mothers" present in dorms that jokes about violence against women. Key quote: "Daniel Mohler, a prominent young doctor around the grounds, says, 'I think housemothers would be fine if they were deaf, dumb, and blind, had their arms and legs cut off and would be contented with bread and water while being chained to the basement furnace.'"
