Update, 7/8: The nominations are in and here are the finalists. Vote for your favorite!
What should Dean Goldfarb's new nickname be?
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
- Battlefarb Galactica
- Starvin’ Farbin
- Ziggy Farbdust
- Chicken Farbesan
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 How about “the Donald”
@Anonymous The Godfarber OR Goldfinger

@Anonymous I would like to register my peevedness that my suggestion The Goldfarber didn’t make it to the final round… now I have to wait until the next dean resigns next summer…
@too soon pena farbora
@they all suck try this: the situation
like when a pack of freshmen chicks giggle and act all impressed at his abs, he yells “yeaah! that’s it right here! looks like we got a farbtuation right here!”

@anon Dean Gold
@Anonymous one more vote for The Godfarber
@Anonymous Not Gold McDonald’s Farb?
Also, Bwog, this is the third dean naming competition: Hinkson -> AHinks, Valentini -> Deantini. So it’s not “the sequel” [title].

@Where's my Milano? Goldini
@Anonymous Dean CashfarbGold
@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…)
@bfg this actually might work — he’s big (at least tall) and friendly (humble, with an old-school East New York accent).
@I smell... Walk-in office hours with snozzcumbers!
