Awesome: A Halloween story

On Halloween I was sitting in the undergraduate class I am an assistant for.

Suddenly, a noise straight out of Star Wars broke the relative quiet of the room (Professor was getting a video clip together to show everyone). It was the Chewbacca noise -- you know it. If you don't, it's required that you watch Star Wars and figure it out.

Our classroom, being an auditorium with 166 seats, has a front entrance and a back entrance. In from the back entrance comes a girl (I'm assuming, b/c this person had a long blond ponytail) wearing a Chewbacca costume and a mask! Following her was a stormtrooper. Then, in from the front door comes another stormtrooper! The two stormtroopers catch Chewy in the middle of the aisle and carry her out of the classroom.

We all turned to Professor. He looked at me and then the rest of the class.

"I don't know what that was," he said. "I didn't plan that."

Giggling begins.

How awesome is that?!

(There was an episode of Gilmore Girls when Rory's boyfriend Logan and his friends interrupt one of her Yale classes to put on a skit and embarrass Rory. I've always thought it would be awesome if that happened in one of my classes. And now it has!!)

That's quite possibly the funniest class story I've heard in a while. Ahh to be in school again. :)"e=roar.txt&file=roar.mp3
