Yale Prank - Carry Nation Picture
Jun 21, 2004
This is a top 10 college prank in my book:
Carry Nation somking with the boys from Yale - Classic!
Prof. GRACE: So the folks at New Haven, the male students at Yale, sent her a telegram and said, `Please, come save us. Please, come to New Haven. You wouldn't believe what we have to eat in the cafeterias. We have to eat meals that are soaked with brandy sauce and champagne sauce and all kinds of liquor-lubed meals.' Of course, they were teasing her.
They wanted a show. They wanted her to come and--and have a b--blast with her. And I think part of her knew that. They knew that.
So she gets off the train, and did her speeches here and there, and then she goes to the hotel room, and she hears a knock at the door. And these young men, these Yale students come, and
they say, `Oh, Carry, please, can we ask a favor?' And she says, `Well, first, you have to sign an abstinence pledge.'
So they did that. And they walk in and they said, `We would really like a photograph with you.' Pleased, she sits on the bed and invites them to
sit around her, and the lights go out so that the flash can occur.
And unbeknown to her, they bring out these gin glasses and beer steins
and--and cigarettes. And so there's the picture of--of Carry Nation.
It still is in New Haven at Maury's Club.
LAMB: She looks like she's smoking herself there, I think.
Prof. GRACE: Well, exactly. That's right. They drew in a certain
thing. You can tell it's not quite in her hand. But it's--it's close
