About Harding Humor

This blog is dedicated to exploring the campus environment of Harding University through a humorous lens with the purpose of "lightening the load" of its students and entertaining its alumni, faculty, staff, and prospective students. The blog also hopes to encourage the formation of a formal humor magazine on campus in the tradition of other prestigious schools. This blog and its purpose also draws itself from a Biblical perspective: Proverbs 17:22a "A cheerful heart is the best medicine..."; also satire is used to keep King David accountable by Nathan in 2 Samuel 12 and by Joab and the Woman of Tekoa in 2 Samuel 14. In the same way we hope that any satire in this blog will be taken in good fun, but any satire has its roots in truth and is meant to make a change for good. In a similar fashion it is requested that all posts and subsequent comments be appropriate for the Christian community which the author and the subject are a part of. This includes respecting the views of others and understanding that hyperbole, stereotype, and parody are necessary tools to the entertainment provided by this blog, do not take things personally.

Disclaimer: This blog is a group of students' personal perspectives. The views cited on this blog, by the authors or any responses by readers, do not reflect the views of Harding University or their faculty/staff.
