I don’t know who the WILD artist is, but I’m mad about it

In a few days, Washington University’s Societal Planning Bazaar (SPB) will announce the 2019 spring WILD artist, and I don’t like it. Their music is offensive or bad or something. It’s not my cup of tea, and I demand change.

Ever since coming here as a freshman, SPB has disappointed time and time again. By far the worst WILD had to have been when Ken Bone opened for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, I don’t even know what genre of music that was, and at this point I’m too afraid to ask. Then there was when they got Smol Peen, need I say more?

I await this WILD announcement with excitement, I have high hopes for the new levels that my disappointment will reach. Will it be another one of them rap guys? Will it be a culturally appropriating person? Will it be someone I can look down upon?

I’m ready to be let down. SPB’s taste in music is the opposite of mine. I voted 12 times in their survey just because I know that my vote counts for 1/12th that of everyone else’s. I might not know much, but I know that SPB did a bad job.
