PurpleProf_250Purple Professor: “Move homecoming to avoid a notorious street party”? What on earth are they on about? Have they forgotten the old joke? “How do you get the neighbors out of your front garden? Move your garbage cans into the back garden.” Move the party and people will attend it anyway: they’ll just move with it. And never forget the old song: “we are, we are, we are, we are, we are the engineers: / we can, we can, we can, we can, demolish lots of beers.” Well, they’ve got to demolish them somewhere, haven’t they? They’ve got a reputation to maintain. Better out in the street than on campus, I say. And you know I’m right about that.

–Past musings of the Purple Professor are available on the STLHE Website
