In St. Peter, Minnesota, Scott Bur is a science professor at Gustavus Adolphus College. He had left for a week’s vacation and returned to a shiny office. Very shiny. Much shinier than when he left. It seems the good professor’s students had covered his office entirely in aluminum foil. Computer screen, chairs, the ceiling, the floor– all covered in foil. Books and pens were individually wrapped, as was the phone, a ball cap, and the coffee maker. But Dr. Bur has a very good sense of humor about the whole thing and says it’s a sort of tradition among his research group. He goes on vacation and when he comes back there’s … something. The last time he went on vacation he came back to find his office was decorated like a fairy princess. Pink fabric and bows covered everything. Senior Kristen Jahr said the aluminum foil prank required 10, 200-foot rolls of foil to complete.
I’m thinkin’ these students have a lot of time on their hands…
See ya in the morning,
