It was like any other day at the university. The students were herded into class. The professors were underpaid. The library was under-funded. The labs continued to crumble and the Parking Gestapo continued to toot around in brand new, high-priced vehicles. The normality was almost stifling. Except on this day there was a stir in the air.

We may have been doomed from the outset. It was, after all, Sat., Oct.31 -Hallowe'en. On the way to the tailgate party the barbecue fell over and obliterated the burners. BOOOO.
