Among other things, the University of Chicago is particularly famous for its t-shirt slogans. These t-shirt slogans include the ubiquitous "Where Fun Comes to Die" as well as a number of other insulting or off-color slogans I don't wish to share here.
One of our other popular slogans comes in a his-and-hers set. For him, there's "University of Chicago: Where the squirrels are cuter than the girls" and for her, there's "University of Chicago: Where the squirrels are more aggressive than the guys."
Unlike, say, the Where Fun Comes to Die slogan, the squirrel slogan does hold a good deal of truth to it. The squirrels on this campus are RIDICULOUSLY INSANE, to the point where people will point out squirrels acting crazy on one of my tours. I've spent the last two years being brainwashed, so I no longer think that a particularly cute/aggressive squirrel is anything noteworthy. This one squirrel, however, got my attention, as he was hanging out on the back porch of my apartment.
Definitely cute. Definitely aggressive. But the crucial question is: how does this squirrel compare to a U of C student?
