I am not sure if I have to explain a "Screw-Your-Roommate Dance.” Ostensibly it is a dance where everyone in a dorm would have a blind date set up for them.

This cartoon appeared the same day an article about 1980 Academy Awards were announced.

I simply looked around to make sure no Carabinieri (military police) were around. I jumped in, went underwater and walked home.
