On a Southwest flight, they all ran from side to side while the plane was in flight and were banned from Southwest. At an Oregon game, after Oregon had legalized medical marijuana, they formed into a giant joint on the field. General ridiculousness.

+1. I'd rather be considered a stodgy, elitist snob than a senseless, tasteless hyena, but that's just me.

Yeah I agree that some of the shit they do is funny. But some of it makes me cringe. And sometimes the band's humor is esoteric at best. That's annoying.

I will admit, they are definitely not meant to be seen from a stadium seat 200 yards away; they're best up close.

The giant joint joke was funny, I admit. But as a Catholic I was really offended by the ND thing, and the Mormon thing was over the line as well. Religion should be off the table in these situations.

To each their own : )

Though I'm not a "hyena," I certainly enjoy offensive humor (an oxymoron).

Via wikipedia: Drum major Eric Selvik dressed as a nun and conducted the band using a wooden cross as a baton. (During the pregame show and first half of the game, the drum major had been dressed as an Orthodox Jew, where the wooden cross was part of a menorah-like baton.)

No, of course not -- they send them via RCMP, personally. Duh, eh.

Tintin, I just got the Michigan WL too! I only have Harvard left.

Also, did anyone else get the call from a non-restricted #? I had always heard that Dean Deal calls from a restricted #, so I was pretty surprised when I saw the (650) area code.

Yeah this happened to someone else. Weird that she apparently uses two different lines.

An odd conclusion to draw, Wouldn't the better conclusion be that it wasn't really Dean Deal who called BioE, but instead some prankster? Sorry dude, but you got owned.

Damn, I didn't think Ashton Kutcher was still punking people. If that's the case, then I feel honored.

Definitely a weird process. To be fair, I think that Chicago (who also WL'd me) and Michigan knew that I didn't want to end up in the Midwest :D

Still a little bitter that Dean Zearfoss sent me a hand-signed fee waiver telling me that she loves Berkeley grads, though.

Zearfoss is a tease. She also loves Colorado grads, Chicago grads, Northwestern grads, and every Ivy grad to name a few.
