Not content to restrict their donations to quads and building, the Perelman family has finally expanded into adorning our campus with alliterative animals. Meet Perry, the Perelman Quad Possum (or opossum for those who like to be technical about it), who lurks in corners outside of Houston and scurries out to eat only the finest trash. Seen Perry around campus? Send us a tip and be sure to treat him with the respect he deserves.
Spotted around campus this morning was a lovely chunk of what we assume can only be some sort of hair (and/or hair ball). Anybody need a faux tail for the day? Trying to grow a beard but just can’t make it happen? This is your chance to shine! Hurry over to 41st and Locust before some other lucky dog snatches it up.
Know any details about these recently arrived receptacles? Tell us in the comments.
Upon leaving Hill this morning, my nose met with an unfamiliar and unwelcome stench. Why, I wondered, did our pristine campus smell like garbage? Were the freshmen from New Jersey that homesick that they had to defile Locust Walk with a trash mountain this morning? Was this comeuppance from the disgruntled former employees of the 40th Street McDonald’s? Either way, as I approached the piles of trash outside Van Pelt, all I knew was that I almost preferred that funky SEPTA smell to whatever it was that was hitting my nose.
