Owl Hoots: Back from Oslo, and better than ever!

Prof Einstein

Prof. Albert Einstein

We’re happy to report that Prof. Al Einstein has returned from his recent jaunt to Oslo with his Nobel safely tucked into his carry-on. Einstein has yet to decide where he will display it. In his office would be the natural choice, but as many of us have realized over the years, if you leave anything within easy reach of our dear ol’ physics prof, he will eventually scribble some obscure formula all over it. President Bishop was adamant that the prize–the most prestigious a Quark faculty member has ever received–remain in pristine condition.

Einstein agreed with this condition. “I still haven’t found that MacArthur Genius Award they gave me five years ago,” he admitted. “And really, I owe my success to this wonderful educational institution as much as I do to my own cognitive functioning, such as it is. The college should feel that this prize belongs to everyone here. Also, I prefer to keep my walls free of things that are difficult to write on.” That’s our Al!
