I saw this sign on the University of Idaho campus this morning. This breaks the bank in terms of weird Christmas behavior. This tree was in the center of the main quad on campus.

I subsequently found an article in the campus paper, the Argonaut, explaining the policy...sortof.

Apparently, in the state with more evergreen trees per capita than anywhere but Alaska, the University has a problem with people cutting down their trees for Christmas trees and evergreen boughs for decoration. Only in Idaho!

And who was it who developed the stink? Made from a mixture of skunk scent and coyote urine one must assume it was developed here in Idaho.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoy Idaho, the university, and Moscow. Still, there are some unbalanced people here.
