Local College Denounces Political Sign as "Threat to Intellectual Stability"

In a move that has left both students and faculty scratching their heads, the administration of our esteemed college has come out swinging against a political sign spotted on campus. The sign, which simply read "Make Better Choices: Vote for [Insert Politician's Name Here]," has been deemed by college authorities as a "threat to intellectual stability" and promptly removed.

"It's truly astounding how a harmless message advocating for civic engagement could be misconstrued as a danger to the very fabric of academia," remarked Professor John Ponderstein, head of the Department of Overanalysis and Absurdity Studies. "We're dealing with some high-level critical thinking deficits here."

The incident has sparked widespread confusion and outrage among the student body. "I don't understand how a simple expression of political opinion could be considered a threat," said junior sociology major Sarah McMillan. "If anything, it's a threat to the status quo, which seems to be what the administration is really afraid of."

However, sources close to the administration suggest that the real issue lies in the potential discomfort the sign may have caused certain members of the faculty. "Let's be real here, some of our professors are more sensitive than a houseplant in a desert," commented an anonymous staffer. "They'd probably faint if they saw a 'My Little Pony' poster with the wrong color scheme."

In an official statement released by the college, President Wallace Wimbly declared, "We cannot allow our campus to be tainted by divisive political rhetoric. Our priority is to maintain a safe and nurturing environment for learning, free from any ideas that might challenge our preconceived notions or require us to engage in critical thinking."

The irony of a higher education institution actively suppressing political discourse has not been lost on the wider community. "It's like they're trying to turn our campus into an intellectual echo chamber," remarked local activist and former alumnus, Timothy Socrates. "Next thing you know, they'll be banning discussions on Plato because his 'Republic' might incite thoughts of democracy."

As of now, the fate of the controversial sign remains uncertain, but one thing is clear: our college may need to brush up on its own principles of academic freedom and open discourse before it finds itself on the wrong side of history. Until then, students will have to navigate the treacherous waters of political expression with caution, lest they disturb the delicate sensibilities of the powers that be.
