For obvious reasons, we feel a certain sense of stewardship over the “art piece, LOL!” that is the Button. That’s why we were not particularly jazzed upon receiving this photo tip. For the second year in a row, it looks like DZine2Show is soiling our blogging spot with a soft-core pornographic photo-shoot! We are so confused about why students partake in this, and will be interested to see the type of clothing they suggest wearing for sub-button intercourse.
Until then, we’ll be wishing on every shooting star we see that they switch things up for the next issue. Hanging upside down from the peace sign naked, perhaps? Urinating on the Ben Bench? Making love on the Love statue? There are so many public works of art that they have yet to deface!
Today must have been a really weird day on campus, because we got a steady stream of very bizarre photos (thanks guys!) and it’s not even pledging season! Unfortunately, just this one time, we don’t have all the answers to the “Please tell us what is going on here UTB!” cries that accompanied the tips. If you know what’s up, help us out by commenting.
Check out squirrel whispering, indecent exposure, the return of mop tops and more, after the jump.

Today in random campus desecrations, Penn’s very own fashion club presents a promotional image for its spring show that manages to offend, baffle and entertain us all at once.
How…shocking! Such a daring combination of patent leather and female euphoria! The tawdry interplay between the human form and the inanimate giant button! It’s destined to become the Leda and the Swan of this century…or at least this semester. DZine2Show just took promoting campus events to a new level.
While parrots and the like have consumed most of the attention surrounding the button today, the scene was more playful by around 4 p.m.
Today, the parrot is back, and he is joined by Waldo (of Where’s Waldo? fame) and some hot rod shopping cart racers. It’s like some weird fratty performance art summit down there, and with spring approaching, we can only expect more of these antics. Thanks to tipster Kevin Shapiro for these photos.
A strange bird-like creature seems to have landed on the Green this afternoon. No, it isn’t that vaguely terrifying hawk of last spring. It’s a squawking parrot! Well, a guy dressed up as a parrot who is squawking. And eating Ritz crackers. On the Button, no less. Pledging season has indeed begun.
UPDATE: Here’s a better picture. Polly want a Penncard?
34th Street requests your presence at the Button this afternoon. Stop by on your way to class, for the love of buttons!
