Gordon Gee, Bow Tie Ballin'

The best part in the Dayton Daily News' expose of gaffe-prone Ohio State president Gordon Gee's spending ($7.7 million in expenses since October 2007! Talk about Little Sisters of the Rich!) is the part about his insane bow tie-related fund, of course:

The university spends tens of thousands of dollars alone branding Gee around his signature bow ties. Since 2007, Ohio State has spent more than $64,000 on bow ties, bow tie cookies and O-H and bow tie pins for Gee and others to distribute, the newspaper found.

"It's a nice icebreaker. The freshmen show up on campus and President Gee hands them a cookie. They love it. The students love it," OSU spokesman Jim Lynch said. He noted that people show off their Buckeye pride with O-H lapel pins all across the country.

Whether college freshman enjoy your snacks or not is hardly an arbiter of fiscal wisdom.

College freshmen were recently high schoolers, the only people in the world capable of eating Taco Bell.

College freshmen go to Ruby Tuesday for nice dinners.

College freshmen would eat cookies shaped like penises.

College freshman would think penis cookies are the greatest things ever created. You know it's true, Ohio State.
