Having fun with a cheesy protest message

Having fun with a cheesy protest message
March 27, 2017 Katie Stark

On my way back from covering a basketball tournament in the Patty Center, I saw this guy.

It was around 15 below at this point, and he was just standing out there waving a sign that expressed his love of pineapple pizza. I debated whether he was worth putting off warm comfort of my apartment for a few extra minutes.

Curiosity won out.

Civil engineering major Shane Holmes describes this as a fun protest. “I’m not going to get punched over it,” as he put it.

I’ll let him explain that thought process.

Welcome to college life.
