    Screengrab
    Someone who was "extremely intoxicated" in Chico, Calif., stole someone's cat on Aug. 30. They attempted to return it with a Craigslist ad that quickly shot up on reddit. Considering Chico is home to one of the Cal State campuses, this could've been a drunk student. But all we know, according to the reddit thread, is the intoxicated cat thief is a she and did successfully return the feline.

    NYU Law Student Will Not Stand For Your Late Night Shenanigans
    This email went out to 1,700 people living in Mercer Hall by someone who really wanted to go to sleep. Via Above The Law:
    It is now 4:20 a.m. on a Friday morning. You got back from what I assume was Bar Review about a half-hour ago, at which point we embarked on a musical journey through some of the worst drunken music taste and singing abilities this unfortunate soul has had the misfortune of enduring. At first I assumed it was only an after-party, which for a while progressed to karaoke, the most mortal of sins, but now based on the cacophony and number of sources of noise I’m convinced you just have a 10 piece drum set and your friends all brought amps over for band practice.

    University of Vermont police didn't think it was very funny when a group of bros took out a Craigslist ad for a "House MILF." Some dudes at UVM said they were "looking for an attractive older woman to come and cook for us every few days," and she would get her "pick of the men of the house to have." The ad was removed after UVM police said they were investigating.
