Amid a hate-crime scare this year at the Ohio liberal arts haven, a student reportedly hung a Nazi flag and photo of the school's president as Hitler to get some easy laughs and attention, the AP reports. Following an uproar over racist graffiti, "I put out these fliers to get a similar over-reaction to prove this point," the kid said, while denying involvement in the earlier incidents. Consider this further proof that most college kids have no idea what's funny or how to make a point.
