Life, liberty and the pursuit of a spoon

Matt Babcock, Ted Kratschmer, Chris Kratschmer and Brendan Corsones | Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Dear Management at North Dining Hall,

We would like to express our sincere gratitude for our entertainment-filled lunch experience today at North Dining Hall. Your “Talking Spoon Scavenger Hunt” not only challenged our mental abilities, but it also gave us the opportunity for more exercise and sight-seeing into some of the more unexplored, “southern” regions of NDH. Had the opportunity not arisen to trek to the “South Side of the Border” in our search for spoons, our refined palates would have never been exposed to the culinary sensation that is California Eldorado Casserole. We also truly appreciated your brazen display of the viewpoint letter criticizing your spoon policy. It is difficult for us to believe that a member of our esteemed student body would be so short-sighted so as to question the efficacy of your new and improved utensil policy and to deny us such a fun-filled day of hunting. We are pleased that you are not merely ignorant of the student’s views, but instead stand up in the face of student pressure to do what you know is right. We applaud you, NDH, and may you continue your brave fight against the will of insolent students.
