The resident faculty left a light bulb joke outside the mail room this morning. The staff aren’t usually paranoid, but we hope it was just a clue…. (More)

Thus we return to the light bulb joke 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:

“I wonder if they’re hinting that we need help,” the Professor of Astrology Janitor said.

“Now, now,” Chef said as she brought out the decoder ring:

“I’m sure it’s just their weekly clue,” Chef continued, scraping stray pecans into the Squirrel’s bowl.

The Squirrel watched and nodded as he tapped at his Blewberry. “That’s what I heard as I scampered past the hot tub faculty lounge squirrel bath. They were disclosing.”

The Professor of Astrology Janitor chuckled. “You mean disrobing.”

Chef shrugged. “Disclosing works too, I guess.”

The Squirrel shook his head and tapped at his Blewberry. “I don’t think that’s what they meant. They were talking about a paper by George Loewenstein, Cass Sunstein, and Russell Golman on how research in psychology and behavioral economics can improve mandatory disclosure policies. I think they have some other psychology stuff too, but they heard me in the grass and I didn’t want to disclose myself.”

“I should hope not,” the Professor of Astrology Janitor said. “That’s the only fur coat you have.”

Indeed.

Happy Monday!
