Posted // April 23,2014 Dear GYA, Of course we're pushing for the University of Utah to change it's fight song. Why? Because the words "man," "fairest" and "coeds" are extremely offensive, in a any context. On a related note, we'd like to see these words stricken from all university books and it would be a huge deal if people stopped using them in casual conversations? Anything happening today less offensive than "Utah %&#?" - Sam Ortiz, University of Utah

Posted // April 22,2014 Dear GYA, As you may have heard, we've decided to not renew Ty Corbin's contract and we're currently searching for a new head coach of the Utah Jazz. Trust me, we're exploring the best possible names available like former head coach Jerry Sloan and if he's not available than maybe his wife or kids, or, if shit gets ugly, we've heard there's a woman named Sloan Jerry who lives in Murray. Anything happening today easier than finding a new head coach for the Jazz? - Greg Miller

Posted // April 21,2014 Dear GYA, So Meb Keflezighi is the first American to win the Boston Marathon since 1983. Hmmm. I'm sorry, but his name doesn't sound very American. Would it be too much to ask if we demanded a copy of his birth certificate? Or, at least asked him to change his name to Mel Kezlinski? Anyway, anything happening today where I can chant USA USA USA?! - Brandon Fromer, Midvale

Posted // April 18,2014 Dear GYA, This weekend is by far my favorite part of the year. I'm not talking about Easter, I'm talking gonna Peeps, baby. You know. those slightly stale, gritty, sugary marshmallow globs? They're delicious. More than likely I'm gonna slam my weight in Peeps all weekend. That's right, I'm gonna Peep so damn hard. Anything going on this weekend besides extreme Peepin'? Rick Rocker, Rose Park

Ha, Leonardo DiCaprio was caught dancing! Idiot. Anything happening today besides reading Coachella "articles?" - Tony Goochelli, Sandy

Posted // April 11,2014 Dear GYA: I broke my body in a horrific bear-jousting accident this week and can't move from my bed. I'm just fine here with my HBO Go subscription, but I'm getting a little tired of seeing my friends' long faces as they come by to awkwardly squeeze my hand or blatantly scope out my possessions. Is there anything going on this weekend that I can tell them to go do so that I can live vicariously through their experiences and, most importantly, get them to stop trying to spoon hot soup into my mouth? —Colin Wolf, Salt Lake City

But I can't remember any of them so now I'm locked out of the whole Internet. I don't know what to do with my time. Please help me. Is there anything I can do today that doesn't involve the Internet? —LostSoul567, West Jordan
