It’s almost time, kittens. Just one more day until the official start of Fling, but if you’re like Highbrow, you’ve been celebrating since Monday. Prepare yourselves for a weekend of drunken debauchery, long lines for Tiesto and even longer lines outside the HUP emergency room. Don’t do anything we wouldn’t do, though. Or rather, don’t do anything you don’t want to read here next week.
Things got messy at the Oracle initiation this past week. Sources tell us that the inductees were covered in syrup and ketchup before having to make Cheerio necklaces and sing the Oracle song at the Button. At least the members got to wear trash bags over their clothes. But hey, maybe we’ll see a comeback of Mugatu’s trashy Derelicte campaign.
Occupy Locust Walk! Mask and Wig staged their annual pledge protest this past week, with their boa–clad sophomores and juniors picketing in front of Van Pelt. This year the Wiggers took up arms against listening, holding up signs and shouting, “Don’t listen to me!” Will do. Hey, the message isn’t as moving as some of Penn’s other activist groups but at the very least our feathered friends are always amusing to watch.
It’s no secret that Passover falls on Fling weekend this year, with people stocking up on potato vodka and Manischewitz in anticipation. But who says the holiday isn’t a prime time to get wasted? One SDT girl really raged while home for seder at her grandparents’ house. While the rest of her family hunted for the afikomen and munched on celery, we hear this chick drank two full bottles of wine, vommed out her parents’ car window on the way home and passed out in her little sister’s bed. Oy vey. Hope she saved some energy for this weekend.
Not to be confused with the Drew Barrymore/Hugh Grant classic, we hear two seniors are throwing a Music with Lyrics party, as an alternative to the Tiesto concert that most of campus will be attending. If you’re not passed out, or if you couldn’t snag a ticket to the show, check out this party, which is taking requests and promising bottle service. Highbrow plans to show up, rage to a few Disney tunes and then bounce.
