Greetings, ladies, gents, and those who do not fall within the suffocating constraints of the gender binary. Let me get straight to the point. I seek to answer an age-old question plaguing many a Kenyon student: what the fuck is a market dog?

It’s the constant dilemma of the Kenyon student: Should I go to the Market or the Bookstore? Both are places to buy snacks as well as other necessities, but which one really is better? We at the Thrill are here to help!
