Overheard on the Halloweekend

At Penn State, the weekend of Halloween (if you want to call Wednesday through Sunday a “weekend”) is truly a spectacle like no other. This beloved holiday brings out the absolute wildest of party animals, throws them in scandalous and/or hilarious costumes, and provides them with an excuse to go crazy in a way that is utterly unacceptable any other time of the year. The things I heard coming out of people’s mouths this weekend exceeded expectations. You’ll either love this, or you’ll be horrified by it, so…trick or treat!
