All articles, photos, comics, features, symbols and spaces between letters are entirely fictional and intended for humorous purposes. Any references to actual persons, living or dead, as well as actual entities and institutions are not grounded in fact; all narratives here written have been invented in the minds of people who believe that they are smarter than and superior to the aforementioned persons, entities and institutions. No live animals were harmed during the production of this publication. All published Gaucho Marks material, in print and online, is the property of Gaucho Marks Magazine and cannot be reproduced without the express permission of the Editor in Chief, who will more than likely be zenned out from meditating and therefore grant permission in a delirious state of goodwill.
If you would like to speak with us directly about anything, please feel free to email us at the address below. After putting your name and message on display for the office to ridicule for a few hours, we should contact you pretty quickly. If you feel that the printed word is too feeble and tiny to carry the weight of your message, speak to us in person at our meetings, which take place in Girvetz Room 1116 at 7 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 in Girvetz 1119.
