Primal SCREAM/Pillow Fight 2011

Written by

In perhaps the most confusing 30 minutes of campus tradition in history, both the pillow fight and Primal Scream overlapped. Though purists waited until 11:59 pm to start, zealous first years joined the fray as early as 11:30 pm. Even a few of the dedicated bodies in the reference room rose from their seats to peek down at the action—one kid went outside between the windows. Wails reminiscent of the 2010 World Cup sounded ominously across campus as kids blew on their vuvuzelas.

The Reference Room failed to get the joke.

So did 209. A sole screamer took a brave stand against the “studying” masses. Carefully choosing his moment, he waited until definitive sounds were heard from neighboring rooms, just to be sure. After he let out the gruesome howl, the girl across from said screamer promptly gathered her belongings and left. He screamed again. Another gal across the room let out a weak “ah.” He screamed once again, even louder. Nothing. People gossiped quietly. Some bro nearby interjected a terse but forceful, “fuck!” Others in the room exclaimed, “that’s not a scream,” but did not scream themselves. He screamed again, even louder and more passionately. Bwog’s vocal correspondent reports that this is the second time this has happened to him. We cannot rely on these lone rangers to maintain our cherished traditions. Loosen up fools!

Update (12:45): A ghost just walked through 209, telling people he died during finals. Wtf.

Thanks to Roko Rumora for the spooky footage

    dear frat boys and athletes,
    I respect your commitment to asserting your masculinity at all times. I can perhaps also understand your confusion in misinterpreting "pillow fight"…after all, “fight” is in the name. But generally, people participate in this activity in the spirit of fun and not in the spirit aggression and violence. I know it’s a fine line that separates the two, but year after year you overstep it.

    that's no ghost! It's just a student with a sheet over his head!

    Thanks guys. It really means a lot to me, being dead and all. I think I may do it every night during finals, just to liven things up a bit for you studly, studious students.

    Cheers,
    The Ghost
