...actually, the prank didn't involve Shamik's Wacky Buddy at all, but rather Shamik himself. (Shamik's Wacky Buddy is often confused with ShamikMaitra
, while Shamik has since been burned in the TG Firepit). This was a prank, involving a large sign in a PVC pipe frame resting on the covering over Hixon Court, along with Shamik and a traffic cone. The frosh, coming to YouKnowWhat
, saw a sign which read "Good Luck Frosh!" Later, a few EastiePeople
pulled down the front sign to reveal one behind which read "Hey, Frosh! It's 10:00 a.m. Do you know where your mattress is?"
Also, at some point between 8:00 and 10:00, Shamik fell off the ledge into Hixon Court, and so a chalk outline was drawn around him and he was carried off (back to East Dorm). (note to future pranksters: bring your own chalk! It's almost impossible to find some on short notice during morning classes in the Libra Complex)
