What's highlighted in the above table is very close to what appears in box 1 of my older son's W-2 form.
"Hey, did you know that if you were married and had 4 kids, you'd still be above the federal poverty level?" I informed him.
He laughed, uproariously.
And then had a few choice words, boisterously delivered, to add.
My younger son, just returned from a run, was equally amused.
Dartmouth Cites Student Misconduct in Its Ban on Hard Liquor. (The New York Times, 1/29/2015)
< College officials cited the prevalence of “pregaming,” getting drunk before a party, and conceded that cracking down on such private drinking would be harder than policing parties. >
No, former employer (March 1976-August 1978), it's "pregaming" for which I'm searching.
My guess is that most Dartmouth applicants are quite aware of the school's reputation for drinking alcohol to an exuberantly excessive level. And that they were so aware even in 2007, when this video was made.
In words, the behavior shown here can hardly be called a prank.
