You Can Dish It Out, But You Can’t Take It
Seen this poster recently? It’s a campaign designed by College Communications to get students to bring back their dishes to the dining hall. The funny lookin’ 2-D graphic at the bottom is a QR-code (to be scanned by your smart phone) linking to this video (below) for the debut of “Aunt Des.” Is that the fictional-mob-boss equivalent of like Tim Spears or something? Director of Dining Services Matt Biette is not portrayed as the ultimate dining purveyor (thank goodness) — even he answers to higher powers. The video’s ominous “to be continued” means there’s more to come in the Aunt Des saga — which student will get their neck rung by her? At the very least, I think Aunt Des should have run-in with the one-and-only Vincent A. Jones for this video series to take off. Props for new tactics in the annual dish fight but it remains to be seen if this campaign will help the big problem of missing dishes.
