Viva La YouTube!

It looks like Brigham Yong Universty has reluctantly entered the 21st century:

Students and faculty agree to follow the university’s honor code, a list of standards in line with the principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The code includes provisions against alcohol, tobacco and caffeine use, among other things. It also specifically labels pornography as taboo.

Students and faculty can now watch scandalous videos like this:

One response to “Viva La YouTube!
