CAMPUS ALERT: There are camels at Butler. The sophomore class hosted this event on the mall to show that they have both the wit to make a joke and the ability to carry it out in such an impressive fashion. So let’s break it down.
On one level, we have camels on campus. Isn’t that enough? Camels are so random in their own right that it is absolutely hilarious in bring them to campus. Think of how a student walking to class would react to these camels. Are they going to think: “What’s going on? That’s odd…camels.” No, they aren’t going to question when good things are happening. They will go see the camels.
The second level of irony comes from the now infamous campus alert a few weeks ago informing all of campus that a criminal was running “towrad the camel,” a phrase that obviously meant “towards the canal,” but which is now stuck in the comic memory of every butler student.
The only problem now is that I’m so distracted from doing the work that I need to do. Thus, I write this post.
