This is IT: Your ONLY chance to throw a pie at the dean -- for a good cause, anyway

You got it. Pie throwing. At me.

And for a good cause. Friday night is ParkFest, an amazing event of music, food, games, haunted hallways and yes, folks: pie throwing. At the dean. (Who says I don't have a sense of humor? Anybody got a rubber suit?)

It's Friday at 8 pm-ish in the Park School. Bands. Pizza. Games. Pies. The works. $5 admission -- and all the proceeds (everything is donated so it's ALL proceeds) goes to the earthquake relief efforts.

It's the kind of special event we can all be proud of. If I'm willing to be the target of massive amounts of whipped cream and tin pie plates, the least YOU can do is show up....

This does seem a bit like a cheap shot, pun intended. And with all the pot shots being taken at higher education and academia around the country, is this message your school wants to send its students?
throw pies at the face of the institution, even if it is the name of fundraising for a good cause? this seems to be a gross misunderstanding of how to raise money for earthquake efforts

Dude (or dudette), lighten up! Some people need a bit of incentivization to support humanitarian efforts on the other side of the world.

What's next? Senior faculty mud-wrestling perhaps?
It is sad and profoundly disturbing that a dean, someone who represents a school and should always strive to inspire respect for academia, would choose to have pies thrown in her face as a 'fun' way to raise money for a cause. A university is not a country fair, people who represent it are not clowns. Not to mention that wasting food to raise money for people who desperately need food (among other things) is very problematic. Next time, perhaps it would be wise to consider what kids and teachers do in grammar and elementary schools: sell lemonade, baked goods, t-shirts and handicrafts made by local artisans.

A good sense of humor never hurt anybody. I stand by the idea. But it's not too hard to express any opinions after the phrase "anonymous said..."
