WESTWOOD — In a bold move, UCLA officials have announced plans to fire all teaching assistants and replace them with Mr. Pudding. “We are always looking for cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions – and we like Mr. Pudding more than the TA’s,” said Vice Chancellor Steven Pudding (no relation). “No, he can’t grade papers, but look how darn cute his widdle cheeks are. I could just eat them up! Num num num.” At press time, all interview requests for Mr. Pudding were denied, as he was occupied licking his balls.
