Heard: DC Interns - Year Round

Hi! I have been an intern in DC since June, and am staying on for the fall semester. Please continue this fabulous blog into the fall; it has kept me laughing through all the good and bad days. I promise: we interns will continue doing less-intelligent things in the fall semester. 

Thank you!


[Editors Note: Per popular request, the DC [Summer] Intern Blog will remain open year-round, so please continue to send us your entertaining stories for publication!]

Heard: Advice Needed

[Editors Note: this was an e-mail submitted looking for information re: upcoming internship.]

Hi, I am starting a congressional internship this fall....and I was wondering if they drug test. I don't think they do, from what I've read. I smoked a joint with a friend last night and just wanted to find out for sure.

Thanks!

Spotted: BWI to Hartford

Dear Summer Intern:

This isn't the Dirksen Building, the Metro, or even Pour House.  This is the Southwest flight to Hartford out of BWI.  

SO TAKE OFF YOUR STUPID RED BADGE!

Thanks.  

Heard: Shotgun!

Dear Interns,

No matter how much you want to get the front seat, it is never advisable to yell "shotgun" while leaving an armed security checkpoint.  It makes the guards a bit testy.

Sincerely,
