I don’t have any clever pranks to play on our readers this morning, but we do have a pretty funny one going on today at work involving a particularly surly colleague who probably won’t be talking to us for the rest of the month after this.

We managed to snag a goofy picture of him which will be going up all over campus this morning along with a funny explanation of his bio and job description.  The poster also includes a call to action for students to submit their applications for summer work directly to him, which will no doubt fill him with rage for the next few weeks.  Should be fun, hopefully he has a good sense of humour.
