This morning, an anonymous tipster weighed in on the origins of the “cHiNA?” graffiti that can be spotted in every other campus elevator:

I thought you should know I have a theory that could possible solve the “CHINA?” elevator riddle. That is, what started it before the ignorant copy cats took over.

It’s dorky and obvious and asks the question on every poli-sci international relations major nerd’s mind.

Is China rising?

Get it!? Get it!? China + ? + on an elevator going up and down all the time!

Though the mystery remains unsolved until the founder of the “cHiNA?” movement is identified, the Bwog thinks this might be the start of what will hopefully be a fruitful investigation.
