Thus we return to the road sign left by 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:

“Ooh, I think I know this one,” Chef as she brought out the decoder ring.

“It’s kind of obvious,”the Professor of Astrology Janitor agreed. “Unless the resident faculty have a trick hidden somewhere in it.”

The Squirrel shook his head and tapped at his Blewberry. “No, this one really is that obvious. The resident faculty will contrast common political and historical myths with actual facts.”

“I wish there were actual road signs,” Chef said. “A lot of times we take the exit for myth without even knowing it.”

“And then we wonder why we can’t find any stray pecans,” the Squirrel texted.

His hint was as subtle as this week’s clue.
