It’s that time of year again, when a dean resigns, and the next in line needs a nickname. Today, that is Interim SEAS Dean Donald Goldfarb. We tried to come up with some ourselves:

  • Old McDonald’s Farb
  • The Farber of Seville
  • Farby
  • Battlefarb Galactica
  • Farby’s
  • Farbohydrate
  • Starvin’ Farbin
  • Ziggy Farbdust
  • Chicken Farbesan
  • Farbie
  • GoFa

Suffice it to say, we need a little help. Leave suggestions in the comments and we’ll make a poll next week with the 5 best names, as decided by a complicated scientific procedure that also involves math. If your name wins, you’ll earn glory which will last from when Goldfarb is confirmed until he, in turn, resigns.

    @Anonymous he has an algorithm named in part after him: BFGS. so his name should be BFG.

      @Anonymous if he’s either big or friendly–this is perfect! (dont know the guy…)

      1. bfg says:

        @bfg this actually might work — he’s big (at least tall) and friendly (humble, with an old-school East New York accent).

    Also, Bwog, this is the third dean naming competition: Hinkson -> AHinks, Valentini -> Deantini. So it’s not “the sequel” [title].
