Senior Cocks: The Best of the Incident Report

14-Cocktail-Glass-hat-Crazy-Hats

By now everyone is aware that Friday night’s Senior Cocks ended when a band of biology majors went mad with grief and destroyed  the giant brontosaurus statue for reasons that have become quite controversial.

Through a chain of individuals, Wesleying received two quotes reported to be from the museum’s “Incident Report.” They are, to say the least, brilliant. 

The two quotes are copied below, and, as always, your comments and absurdities are greatly encouraged.

1. “Wesleyan student removed from the 6th floor for riding the dinosaur.”

2. “Wesleyan student fell down the up escalator. And continued falling as if in a perpetual motion machine.”

Here’s Why Senior Cocks Got Shut Down in Two Hours Last Night

Spoiler: It involves sex, drugs, and rock & roll projectile vomiting.

Last night, around 7:30 p.m., a few hundred well-oiled members of the Class of 2013 piled into buses outside of Usdan, headed—unbeknownst to passengers—to the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford. Two hours later, a drunker, louder, and scientifically inspired Class of 2013 was herded onto the same buses and driven right back to Middletown. The “Freaks and Geeks, Valentine’s Day style”-themed evening—which cost $40 and made for the third senior event of the year—wasn’t supposed to end abruptly in less than two hours, but according to one student who overheard an exchange between museum staffers and Wesleyan coordinators, the ejection may have been well earned.

“I overheard that staffers at the Connecticut Science Center observed students ‘doing drugs and having sex in the bathrooms,’ and that things were getting broken,” explained the student, who asked not to be named. “I am not sure whether or to what extent that is exaggerated or not; it was said rather offhandedly and by someone who appeared to be under a lot of duress at the time.”

If you noticed copious amounts of baking soda lining the stairs of the museum, that, too, had something to do with the staff’s unhappy reaction.
