“Wild” Bill Nielson, president of the Eau Claire Common Council, has issued a decree to all residents of the city. The short but poignant message reads “Love Thy Neighbor,” and it has been accepted with jubilation by the masses.
“I hadn’t really though of it before, but it makes all kinds of sense,” said Ty LaPlant, who lives in Horan Hall. “It would really be nice if my neighbors weren’t all guys.”
Ty’s sentiments were echoed all across this fine metropolis, as dozens of citizens began loving their neighbors immediately.
“I never used to like that one guy who showed up for class smelling like beer, but he’s OK now,” admitted Mandy Less. “He’s my neighbor, sorta.”
Local church officials refused to be interviewed, claiming that the secular “Love Thy Neighbor” decree doesn’t interest them.
