The resident faculty left a not-really-a-palindrome outside the mail room this morning. Even the Squirrel was befuddled by this week’s clue…. (More)

Thus we return to the not-really-a-palindrome left outside the mail room as the resident faculty 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:

Thwack-kcawhT

Chef chuckled as she brought out the decoder ring:

The Squirrel shook his head and tapped at his Blewberry. “Don’t bother scraping any stray pecans for me. I didn’t hear anything.”

“That’s okay,” Chef said as she began filling his bowl. “I think I figured it out.”

“Really?” the Professor of Astrology Janitor asked. “Because it’s going right by me.”

“Like most of Serena Williams’ shots went by Caroline Wozniaki yesterday,” Chef said.

The Squirrel turned as the Professor of Astrology Janitor replied. “Yeah. Talk about dominance.”

The Squirrel looked back as Chef nodded. “It was her third straight U.S. Open Women’s Singles title.”

The Squirrel turned as the Professor of Astrology Janitor spoke. “And she never lost more than three games in any set of the tournament.”

The Squirrel looked to Chef, who smiled. “She was overpowering.”

The Squirrel turned to the Professor of Astrology Janitor, who agreed. “Totally.”

The Squirrel tapped at his Blewberry. “Duh!-!huD”

The Squirrel looked at Chef, who smiled. “Thwack.”

The Squirrel turned to the Professor of Astrology Janitor, who nodded. “Thwack, back.”

The Squirrel chittered excitedly and tapped at his Blewberry. “So all of that was to congratulate Serena Williams and say the resident faculty will bounce back and forth between stories this week?-?keew siht seirots neewteb htrof dna kcab ecnuob lliw ytlucaf tnediser eht yas dna smailliW anereS etalutargnoc ot saw taht fo lla oS”

Chef winked. “That took almost as long to type as yesterday’s match did to play.”

Indeed..deednI

Good morning!
