I particularly like the "Not a Decision" at the end of the subject line... I mean, why even send one in if you know that's how it would be interpreted?

Some people enjoyed it. I thought it was a nice gesture... although the card itself was pretty whack. They included the line because a number of people freaked out when they received the Thanksgiving one.

Right... but the hat/scarf thing? Did NOT get that at all...

Yah, I thought it was pretty bizarre... especially the last line "You don't go to Northwestern"

Lulz I loved it- quirky as all hell whether or not it made sense...

I'm just glad (and they're the only school to do this so far) that they included the "Not a Decision" line in the subject.

Clearly a subtle jab at NYU. The message is that no decent, Northwestern-attending snowperson would hurl a projectile at a fellow student/citizen and then claim that snowperson's hat for his or her own. Such behavior would be more characteristic of students at another unnamed but implied school closely identified with the color purple.
