You learn so slow, old radiant beauty
I'll curve my flight

Under your bended knee
And I will always die
I will always die
I will always die
So you can remember me

I move so slow, a steady crushing hand
Holy shit there's a company in my back
I move so slow, a steady crushing hand
Holy shit, there's a company in my back

There's a company in my back

Clame for more info about our strange mascot. I don't really know anything more about it than is in that Wikipedia entry, as I haven't been at the U for very long. I have been thinking about how to get an interesting shot with this statue for a long time. I'm not particularly satisfied with what I've done here.

I was hoping it'd either stop raining so I could take my time with this or start really raining hard so I could get some cool effects from the rain in the shot. Instead, it just kept steadily plopping down on me. Oh well.

@hale: Um ... the mascot took off his skeleton costume, and underneath ... he's a skeleton? I guess it's ironic? Or paradoxical?

I'd never heard of a mascot who roams the school dismissing students from their classes before. Seems much more interesting than just having a student dressed up like an animal doing push ups when the home team scores a touchdown. But what do I know?
