Econ Majors Spooked by Student’s ‘Recent Alum with No Job’ Costume


Amherst, MA – Econ majors were given a real fright this Halloween when notorious campus prankster, Charlie DeMitz, ’18, showed up to an econometrics lecture dressed as a member of the Class of 2016 who still hadn’t found a job.

“It isn’t real! It can’t be real!” yelled Marcus Plumas ’17, as DeMitz ran around the classroom, waving an unemployment check and wailing, “Oooohhhh, I never even made a second-round interviewwwwww.”

“Make it stop!” screamed Jessica Yan ’18, shutting her eyes, hugging her knees, and rocking back and forth. “I have an internship this summer, I have an internship this summer!” she cried.

DeMitz really got the class going when he began to bellow, in a haunting voice, “Oooohhhh! Ooooohhh! I’m considering joining the Peace Coooooorp!” Reports indicate that a few students were so frightened that they threw up all over their regression analyses.
