The resident faculty left a jar of salsa in a shoe outside the mail room door this morning. At least it was an easy clue…. (More)

First our thanks to last week’s writers:

Note: Please share your stories of offline political activism in Things We Did This Week.

Thus we return to the jar of salsa left in a shoe outside the mail room by the resident faculty, as they made their way from the wine cellar library where they spent the weekend drinking thinking on our motto of Magis vinum, magis verum (“More wine, more truth”) to the hot tub faculty lounge for their weekly game where the underwear goes flying planning conference.

Perhaps the resident faculty have run out of obtuse clues, as the staff are sure you deciphered this one immediately. Salsa is, after all, a blend of several vegetables and spices, used as a dip for tortilla chips and a condiment on other dishes. Leaving the jar in a shoe was an obvious allusion to the dance form called Salsa, which features complex footwork and paired improvisation.

Thus, even your lowly mail room clerk could see that this week the resident faculty will mix several topics, dancing from one to another in response to what will likely be a very busy news week.

But Chef put tortilla chips out with the pecan danish ring … just in case….

+++++

Happy Monday!
