We just received the following press release from Rutgers University:

Last night, on April 2nd, 2009, the Rutgers University Programming Association (RUPA) and Rutgers Student Life broke the Guinness World Record for The World’s Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Waldo from the iconic picture book series, Where’s Waldo?. 1,052 Rutgers students, staff and community members were spotted “showing their stripes” at the historic State Theatre located in downtown New Brunswick, New Jersey. Rutgers smashed the previous record, set by 577 Acuity Insurance Employees in Sheboygan, Wisconsin at the Acuity Insurance headquarters.


The press release said that this endeavor was really a charity effort, with every person bringing one or more books to donate to the New Brunswick school district. But we know what this was really about: Those Acuity Insurance bitches in Sheboygan needed to be put back in their place.
