This Tuesday, UVU’s administration issued a shocking proclamation; UVU has officially declared war on Brigham Young University. The declaration stated that UVU was forced to take action because of BYU’s “repeated and annoying acts of douchebaggery against the faculty, staff, and students of Utah Valley University.”

Students of UVU, after seeing the declaration on the home page of the school’s website, reacted immediately and with fervor, setting fire to the “Y” on the mountain within hours of the declaration’s issuing.

The declaration itself bears a striking resemblance to the United States’ 1917 declaration of war against the Imperial German Government. History majors across campus are researching the documents to “determine whether the administration of UVU plagiarized Congress’ original document,” said Carl Whiteley.

BYU’s counter-action is yet to be determined. Stay tuned for the next issue of the Specter for details.
