  1. that was the worst prank i have ever seen. who would be so sad to go and stick disco balls on a clck tower

  2. The “Who” of the pumpkin Incident is much less important than the “How” — one of my friends at CU at the time said it was a group of insane climbers/climbing club members here.

    disco ball? I didn’t see no disco ball.

  4. Compliments on a great site (with the catchiest name I’ve heard in a long time)! Keep up the good work on educating people about the endless skills and the secret superpowers of librarians :-)

  5. Hi Erica, by now the old-timers at Cornell have told you about how in I think 1998 someone got a giant pumpkin up there during halloween…the head of the cornell archives asked whoever did it to send her a sealed envelope with an explanation and she would put it in the archives for future students to find out who did it…but apparently no dice. maybe they told the disco ball people though!

  6. Sure does beat the snow-sculpture penis that has an annual fixture at Western.

    Although one year they did it as an ice sculpture, which was pretty cool, until it started to melt … although the girls had a riot when that happened.

  7. Great blog, Erica! Can you really eat 50 eggs? Wow, librarians really can do everything ;o)

    You are my heroine of the day!

  8. Call me an old fuddy-duddy, Erica, but I wasn’t reared to go around sticking disco balls on clock towers. After all, there’s a stark difference between harmless pranks and gross hooliganism. (E.g., think two terms as Texas Governor v. two terms as President of the United States, respectively.)

    Moreover, as every good student of The History Channel can tell you, misappropriation of disco balls for unseemly, unapproved architectural ornamentation is a sure sign of moral decay, and preceded the declines of the Roman Empire, the Mayan Empire, and the NHL.

    Finally, where would we be if everyone went around appending disco balls to clock towers…or if disco floors everywhere were to be suddenly littered with clock towers? That’s NOT the kind of world I wish to live in, nor do I want that for our children and grandchildren.

    Thanks for your civic spirit in bringing this important issue to our attention, Erica…even when you might have been going for 51 eggs.

    Respectfully,
    Jerry
