Driscoll Deviations

Revision as of 14:43, October 17, 2005 by (talk)

The Driscoll Deviations were a series of pranks performed, unsurprisingly enough, by the Driscoll Deviants, a group of students who felt that dinnertime at Williams needed the occasional bit of lightening up. Most of the Deviations took place between 2002 and 2004. Notable Deviations included Formal Dinner Night, where students arrived in full evening attire and were served by volunteer waitstaff; Wild West Night, which featured water guns, bandanas, atrocious cowboy accents, a sing-along of the theme from "Rawhide," and a pseudo-genuine stringing-up of outlaws; Fairy Tale Night, at which princesses, ogres, fairies, mermaids, and vampires frolicked as children's stories were read; 70's Disco Night, where half of Driscoll got down to the Village People and KC and the Sunshine Gang; Iron Chef, at which two teams of cooks made haste to concoct culinary creations that were sometimes disgusting, sometimes phallic, but always inventive; Rejected Super Heros night, where many lesser known heroes emerged, and, of course, the infamous Odd Takes Dodd night, the only Driscoll Deviation to take place in a dining hall other than Driscoll. Some residents of Dodd swore they'd never forget the moment when an army of pirates, ninjas, and Vikings bearing large duct-tape swords invaded their previously peaceful home.

The Deviants still maintain a listserver which is used to organize entertaining and odd activities on campus, and Driscoll Deviations, though less common than in years past, occur one or two times per semester. Recent deviations include the Thrift Store/Back-of-the-wardrobe deviation on 9/24/2005, and the Gods and Goddesses Deviation in Spring 2005.
