Columbia University’s senior class, I’m disappointed in you. According to a submission to the Senior Wisdoms portion of one of the school papers, many of you chose cheese instead of one of the better kinds of sex.
The survey was in response to the paper’s most famous Senior Wisdoms question, “Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese?” The survey states that most of the students that said they would not give up “breakfast in bed” over an element of plain old breakfast suggested lactose intolerance was one of the biggest issues. All the reasons to not give up the blow job, and you pick dietary issues? That’s like asking someone why they wouldn’t want to be a pledge again, and them saying it was too much of a time commitment.
The one redeeming factor is the sample size was small, only about 222 students, and it was self-selected. That said, Columbia has very small graduating classes, so it isn’t nearly as irrelevant a sample size as one might hope.
Now, perhaps I’m a dirty heathen on this one. Full disclosure: I don’t actually really like cheese. Feel free to pillory me in the comments for that. That said, even if I did like cheese, I’m pretty sure I would still like sex more. They’re not even in the same ballpark.
