Last night on Twitter, fueled mostly by being lonely in Butler, Bwog decided to try a contest:

Since then we’ve decided that, yes, we will give a prize to the funniest author.  Vote for your favorite at the end of the post.  We’ll leave the poll open for 24 hours and the winner by 9:30 tomorrow night will win a Milano sandwich.

Read on for the submissions and vote for your favorite:

@ChayenneMia: Studying for my psych exam and all the words in my textbook have just become gibberish. Coincidence? #governmentshutdown @bwog

@petersterne*: .@bwog Maybe now Obama will have time to stop by his alma mater.

@tclick10@bwog PrezBo just sent out the email that classes are canceled due to the shut down

@labuzamovies@bwog Now the rest of the country will know what it’s been like to be a Columbia student.

@yosoymichael@bwog joke: im going 2 class tomorrow bc it’s not cancelled

@tylerthinksthis@bwog With the government shut down, can we buy caffeinated Four Loko?
