Have You Seen A Roman Soldier in Pampers?

During the once-a-year STM picnic day held two weeks ago in Port Dickson, the students were allowed to do whatever they wanted to do to the lecturers by dressing them up in newspaper.

There was no shortage of creativity from the students especially when lecturers were hopelessly subjected to their mercy. In their newly given "once-a-year-licence" to vent their anger and frustration on the lecturers for giving them so much coursework in our courses, torturing them in our boring lectures (at least from their perspective), and more importantly, for not giving them the As that they think they deserve, the students decided to dress me up as a Roman soldier (at least that's what they had in mind, but the finished product was something else...a Roman soldier wearing pampers???).

But I must say it was rather fun - the "battle" with my OT colleague, Anthony Loke, somehow took on a new dimension beyond calling the OT the "preface" and the NT the "after-thought" or "appendix." We did get a bit physical....

For another perspective, see the post by one of the students.

STM sounds like a dangerous place to be a lecturer...

Dear Alex,
Yes, it sure is - the occupational hazard is one that no insurance policy would cover. We are exposed to high risk! :-)

Ionstorm,
Yes, you are right!!
