Quote of the Day - My green thumb came only as a result of the mistakes I made while learning to see things from the plant's point of view. - H. Fred Ale

It Was A Litte Early for Easter

The Gamma Phi Beta sorority sisters don't exactly have a green thumb, but they have great fashion sense. Since you can't really have a great party without decorations, the sisters went in search of palm fronds to add a tropical flavor to their festivities for last Saturday night.

Unfortunately, they may have gone a little too far. The sisters apparently cut palm fronds from several palm trees on private property extending up and down a path from the sorority house, and did a very poor job of it.

Here's the best part, though. The "mutilation" of the palm trees was discovered Suday morning - presumably after the party was just winding down. When contacted by the police, one of the sisters told them that "Now is not a good time to talk about the palm fronds." Apparently, some parents of sorority pledges were at the house.

Not to be put off, the police offered the sorority sister "other options" for a better time to talk with them about the palm fronds. Eight sisters thought that an immediate discussion was their best option, and admitted to cutting the palm fronds.

It's not like there isn't plenty to do at Cal State University, Chico. Just as one example, instead of cutting palm fronds, the sisters could have attended the "Burning Spear with Mystic Roots" presentation. Don't ask me, I have no idea. Given the choice, I might have considered the fronds, too.

My post correctly notes that the event was in the day time, but says nothing about drinking. Feeling guilty? The partying reference came from the news

Get your facts straight before you print things, you idiot. The event WAS Sunday in the day time and there was NO drinking or "partying" involved.
