Insanity on The Lawns
Written by Bwog Staff
At around 11:45, eager pillow-bearers began to congregate on the Butler lawn for the 4th annual Primal Scream/Pillow Fight, which this year featured over a hundred combatants. One claimed to have “stretched all day for this,” while several others wore capes. At about a minute before midnight, the two sides charged screaming towards each other, much to the amusement of the spectators who ventured from their campsites in Butler.
Though at first two sides charging at each other like some medieval melee, the fight quickly broke down to every man and woman for themselves. Warriors quickly adopted the language of the battlefield, including cries of “push him into the bushes and hit him,” “come and get me,” and “we don’t negotiate with terrorists!”
The fun did not begin to die down for almost twenty minutes, before many of the combatants slumped down on the grass. As one tired observer said, “I’ve never seen so many people willing to beat the shit out of each other.” Photo album after the jump.
