As a McGill student, you may be wondering what all of your six dollar mandatory fees are going towards at the Daily Publication Society. The McGill Nightly has compiled an in-depth report, and here are our findings:
- $50,000 goes towards printing out thousands of samosa napkins a week that can’t even be used for their primary purpose anymore and definitely won’t be used for their secondary purpose either
- $30,000 is set aside for bribing students to say that they hate in-person school and yearn for the days of online class so they can report on it
- $15,000 is used to pay local businesses to taint their good name by running an ad in the Daily
- Arguably the most important spend of the budget, $25,000 is used to pay for the psychic medium to write up the Daily’s horoscopes
- $30,000 to pay for polling and research, to find exactly how students feel about important issues so they can write the polar opposite
- $10,000 for a comedy consultant to remove anything that can remotely be considered funny from the "compendium" section
- $10,000 worth of hush money for students who noticed they constantly re-run articles in separate issues.
- And as for the other $90,000 per year, these will be forever unaccounted for as we have no idea how they could possibly spend so much money every single year.
