According to a tipster, the Class of 2018 Facebook group was issued the following challenge:
COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY CLASS OF 2018 has officially been nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Everyone should assemble next Tuesday, August 26th, at 1:00 P.M. on the Low Library staircase. We will then nominate….I don’t know…Class of 2017? Maybe even University President Lee Bollinger?? LET’S GO!
Skip to 0:37 for the action. Or just wait, it’s only 37 seconds.
Our tipster doesn’t report that anybody picked up on “Low Library staircase” but that :
it got over 120 likes, but the first comment was: “Bro i love your idea and enthusiasm, but coming from California where we’re having a severe drought, it hurts me to see all that water wasted. It’s great that you’re helping bring awareness though” and that got over 40 likes.
Environmental consciousness versus charity and fun, a classic dilemma. What will come of this? Our tipster provides an insightful analysis:
will be interesting to see if kids follow through, but for now i think we can bank on no one going and scratch this as some kids clear way-too-early-push to get his name out to run for office or something of the like.
Indeed. Bwog also hopes that we get to see PrezBo take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, mostly because we want to test our theory that his bionic hair is impervious to water.
