Someone mentioned that Princeton was one of the few places with black squirrels. Well, they do indeed have black squirrels
. In the Princeton Illuminatus
game, the Black Squirrels are a group of illuminati. They also have eating club
, the Wa
, the Dinky
, Die for the Inn
, a college Hall named for an alum wanted for fraud in Hong Kong
, a building so ugly
that when it was submitted for an architectural project at Princeton it was roundly failed - but the designer became rich enough to buy the irony, and more. Perhaps you fancy God's Bitchin' Single
? Maybe the depths of Firestone
, complete with carrel
s for you thesis
monsters. There's a sculpture known onomotovisua
lly as the Flying Fuck! A cannonball
hole in the wall of Nassau Hall
is said to have been put there by those obnoxious Colonials
while shelling the B.E.F.
, some of whom were barricaded inside in the forlorn hopes that those barbaric Revolutionaries
wouldn't blow holes in their own building.
Do I sound like a yearbook yet?
Or maybe an Orange Key Guide?
I may or may not have attended, though. Perhaps I'm staff. Perhaps I'm faculty. Perhaps...perhaps the Department of Public Safety there has some vicious problems with racial profiling. Perhaps the P-rade is P-ointless. Perhaps the mathematicians there got a tower because of penile insecurity.
Then again, I could be making all of this up.
I miss Palmer Stadium.
The lake at the southeast end of campus is a man-made lake, given by and named for Andrew Carnegie, steel baron extraordinaire.
Whatever you do, though, if you're a student, don't leave the campus by the main gates or you won't graduate.
Oh, and the motto is really They Got Nice Widgets.
