Only in College…

For your amusement. I was recently forwarded the following blitz:

– Forwarded message from ––––––––––––––––––-

In honor of senior spring, and because you can only get
away with this kind of shit in college, I am going to try to
organize the largest mass streaking event in Dartmouth history.
My goal is to get over 100 people. I have no idea if this will,
in fact, be the largest, but it’s a good number to shoot for.

Here’s what I need from you:

1) If you are interested in participating in what will
hopefully be a momentous, historic event blitz me at with the subject line “Streak”

2) If you are involved in any sports, clubs, or CFS
organizations, please blitz them. Tell them if they want to
participate, to blitz with the subject
line “Streak”

3) Though this is a mass event, I want to try to keep it as
much on the DL as possible (due to its illegal nature, and
because this will be all the better if its a surprise). Please
do not tell anyone who is organizing this — only refer them to
the e-mail address: I think an air of mystery will help this

If we get enough people, I will blitz those participating with
more details. If you’ve never streaked before, this is the
perfect opportunity to try, retaining a certain degree of
anonymity, and being part of something (hopefully) big. Spread
the word.


– End of forwarded text –

Certainly intelligent of the streaker to use a non-Dartmouth e-mail address.
