EXCLUSIVE: The Senior Editors Get Honest About clay

A while back, we were approached by NBC to participate in a documentary about student publications from around the world. When we heard the documentary would not actually air — something about “no one caring about intimate details of school newspapers” — we were appalled and disappointed. However, we were lucky enough to negotiate the rights to our interview from this program. And, with this month’s theme being the reinvention of clay, what better time to share our unique, behind-the-scenes point of view on the magazine?

Check out our video for an inside look at our jobs as Senior Editors, the trials we face, and what we really think about working together.



  1. Ohhhh ahhhhahahha I think this is SO funny!

  2. This is hilarious! And you are all so gOrGeOus :}

  3. Do Canadians really drink bagged milk? I will have to research this…
    Wow, okay, thanks for teaching me something I never knew!

    • It’s sad, but true…

      • yep it’s true… I don’t live in Canada but I live less than an hour away soooo…..

      • I always thought bagged milk was a myth…sad to see that it’s not

      • Leanne Zuiderveen

        Canada switched from glass to plastic bags when they switched over to the metric system. But you know what’s sad, the States still use the imperial system of measurements along with only… uh… two other countries? I’m just sorry you’re still stuck in past with your milk cartons and imperial system.

        • Sorry to burst your bubble, but new isn’t always better. The metric system is extremely boring and predictable. We like keeping things interesting here in the States.

          • Though I agree with you I’d like to point out that, just as new isn’t always better, interesting isn’t always better.

        • Leanne, I’m sorry, but…
          Imperial = relating to an empire, magnificent, majestic (sounds way cooler)
          Metric = relating to the meter (boring)
          Therefore, imperial > metric
          The US uses the imperial system; Canada uses the metric. Therefore, the US > Canada.
          The US has milk cartons; Canada has bagged milk. So therefore, milk cartons > bagged milk.
          There. A perfectly logical argument.

          • Mari is out here making wonderful points. The US will continue winning whether you like it or not.

          • YEAH TELL ‘EM MARI
            and yeah… what else can I say but…

          • Stuff and nonsense. Though I am an avid patriot, I agree that metric is better, as I am an aspiring engineer. Working with metric makes things SOOO much easier than all of those tedious unit conversions. However, that doesn’t mean that bagged milk is better (That actually sounds gross ๐Ÿ˜‚).

          • Perhaps metric is more convenient, but imperial is indisputably more fun.

          • Mari, you have some mistakes there.
            Imperial: Not making any sense, and a pain for all math students.
            Metric: straightforward, makes sense, a joy to work with.
            Therefore, metric US.
            Canada keeps u’s after o’s; US deletes them. Therefore, u’s after o’s > no u’s after o’s

          • I’m sorry Emily, but it seems to me that there was a break in your logic.

          • Yeah, imperial is hard to convert between measurements, but it is more logical by itself, when you don’t convert between different standards, i.e. volume to weight (if that makes any sense). For instance, the Fahrenheit scale is modeled to tell temperature in an easier way, i.e. 70 degrees instead of 25.65 C. Overall, Imperial is easier for measurements in volume and temperature and metric is better for weight and length. So it’s kind of a tie. Imo, America always wins though ๐Ÿ˜‚

          • Imperial: Not making any sense, and a pain for all math students.
            Metric: straightforward, makes sense, a joy to work with.
            Therefore, metric > imperial.
            Canada uses the metric; US uses imperial. Therefore Canada > US
            Canada keeps uโ€™s after oโ€™s; US deletes them. Therefore, uโ€™s after oโ€™s > no uโ€™s after oโ€™s.

            There you go.

      • yup canadians do im a canadian and we do actually it is the normal here lol

      • yup we dooooooooo!

    • Yes. We drink bagged milk in Canada. Don’t ask why, idk, but when we visit the States we brink empty milk jugs to use rofl

    • lol emma i didn’t know either

  4. LOL this is great

  5. Hee hee! You two are absolutely HOPELESS.

    As for the extra u’s – I’ve gotta agree with Cassie. When it comes to pronunciation of words (sorry all you Brits) and spelling, the U.S. has got it right every time. After all, we have the original version, right?

  6. In the modern and revolutionized country I live in, we drink *boxed* milk.

  7. This cracked me up so bad ugh ugh ugh u guys r so funny XD

  8. Its just easier to use cartons tho…how do you reseal bagged milk?
    (just wondering, honestly)

  9. Hilarious! XD Really enjoyed this. NBC really lost out by not airing this in their documentary…

  10. Naomi Hochstedler

    This is hilarious!! I’m both Canadian and American, but don’t live in either country. I must say that metric is better. Also I like how Canadians take the time to give there words character by adding the u’s. Just saying… xD

  11. I’m Canadioan. I also think that Leanne has great humour!

  12. Bagged milk is sacrilegious and a heresy.

  13. Oh my goodness – this is SO funny…. XD ROTFLOL!! Though, honestly, I think that the extra “u”s are beautiful… ๐Ÿ™‚ (Yes, I live in the U.S. – WA, to be specific. XDXP) Honour, colour, saviour – you get the idea. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’m not sure what I think about the bagged milk… Definitely intriguing. ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh, and I loved that she was watching Westerns to understand us better!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜„
