ASU to Freshmen: "Do Not Drink the Paint"
Isn't there some sort of joke about Arizona State University's seemingly generous acceptance rate?
It makes a warning to freshmen to avoid drinking paint seem fitting.
The university uploaded a video of the annual tradition of freshmen painting the "A" on "A" Mountain white, and sure enough, the spot where the freshmen pick up the paint gives them the warning to not drink it.
Sure, the paint's in little paper cups, and maybe the kids are itching for some water. That doesn't mean there's not some humor in telling supposedly college-ready youngsters to not drink paint.
It looks like the sign may not have gotten through to everyone, though:
#ASUfallwelcome I'm gonna drink the paint!!!
