Pie in the face

Yesterday at noon I had a pie thrown in my face. Actually, it was more pushed into my face than thrown, but the overall effect was the same.

How did this come to pass?

The SEAS students set a contest so that the department's bin that collected the most cash would cause that department to be pied. I volunteered for the pieing long ago, because usually somebody puts in a big check for the administration to cause them to receive the honor. Somebody forgot to do that this year, so the CS[E] department "won" and the CS profs (Cindy Grimm, Bill Smart, Keith Bennett, Ken Goldman, and yours truly) were treated to a pie in the probiscus yesterday.

The real clincher is that the raffle tickets to earn the right to "throw" the pie were only 50 cents! Come on, aren't we worth more than that?? Also I was told not to avoid the pie. I think a little bobbing and weaving would make the whole event more fun. Ducking especially should be encouraged, depending on who is behind the prof.


You got a pie in the face because the administration cheated.
