Imagine my surprise today when I saw an article in the Lawrence Journal-World with a headline that contained "Sandbar School teaches students…" My first thought was, Dave's teaching what?!?
The article is actually about a program put on by the Friends of the Kaw called Sandbar School, and it's a lesson for elementary school aged kids about the river and water safety. Oh, and they got a free life jacket, that they got to decorate with markers!
The funniest quote in the article was from a fourth grader: Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve heard the sandbars would be a lot of fun."
Oh if he only knew! Give him about twelve or thirteen years and he'll have a whole different idea of sandbars.
The article wasn't the only thing funny, however. If you've ever read a story in the LJW, you've seen the comments from the peanut gallery that are posted beneath almost every story online. The comments on this story were quite hilarious:
And then a zinger from Scotty Mac-
Oh, Scotty. Who do you think is going to teach him, you? I don't think there's much about mixing drinks that Dave doesn't already know.
The Sandbar- the actual bar- made the newspaper today, also. An article about how local businesses are using social media tools like blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and email made a mention of The Sandbar's Facebook page. They even included a link to the page. Our friend Jacinta, who co-owns an online marketing firm, was quoted in the article also.
