We’re all gaffeurs, but our gaffes aren’t half as interesting as those of our distinguished faculty (and staff). The Bwog presents to you this week’s finest moments:
A staff member walking out of the Hartley Customer Service Center, to another:
“I’ve got a baseball bat back in my office, if you’re gonna need it.”
A necessarily anonymous language professor (translated) speaking of university president Lee C. Bollinger:
“Yes, he’s got a certain virility; it’s the virility of a Cro-Magnon, but all the same…”
Professor Brigitte Nacos, during Mass Media and American Politics, speaking of Katherine Graham at the Washington Post:
“She was a woman. She had no idea how to run a business.”
Professor Michael Seidel’s bald forehead, by a huge, colorful projection of the Microsoft XP “Start” button, for a good 5 minutes during his Thursday Joyce lecture.
