The Dover Boys at Pimento University (P.U.)

In an earlier post, I poked fun at the novelty of a manure-sniffing study being conducted at Purdue University, i.e., P.U. The comedic irony here is threefold, and if I may make it explicit:

  • It’s a genuine manure sniffing study
  • It really is being conducted at a University with the intials “P.U.”
  • Most significantly, there’s a famous old Warner Bros. cartoon that plays nicely into the irony.

I give you “The Dover Boys at Pimento University” OR “The Rivals of Roquefort Hall”–

Pimento U., o’ sweet P.U.
Thy fragrant odor scents the air
A pox on Yale, poo-poopa-doo
Pimento U., my college fair

Praise it
