Stupefaction by a Theme
Written by Bwog Staff
Bwog correspondent Jim Williams received an e-mail this morning with the following heading:
He needed to speak out:
In addition to the fact that the mere existance of a Wizard of
Oz/Wicked themed semi-formal for college sophmores (read: 20-year-olds)
is just…well, a huge joke, does anyone else think it’s hilarious that
the creators of this ad felt the need to specify that the room in which
this event is going to occur will, in fact, have a floor?
Imagine a yellow brick road leading up to an enormous tent
glittered with green lights. Step inside to a fully heated, floored room
with a dance floor, a live band, a DJ, food from Manna Catering, a
dessert bar from Columbia Catering, and palm trees. This image will
become a reality at the Emerald City Semi-Formal on Saturday night!
Looks like now I can go, because all of my concerns about the event
taking place in a huge abyss where we all dance in free-fall have
finally been put to rest.
Also worthy of note is the last line of the email:
Open to SEAS’08, CC’08, JTS’08, Barnard’08, GS’08, and JTS’08.
This implies that event organizers want JTS kids to attend twice as much as
the rest of us.
