I guess Barney really hates being a robotics team

(Coach’s Quotes)

“Why is there a flying lawnmower on every computer in the lab?”
“Mr. Tian, I feel that every week, you consciously ask yourself the question, 'what is the most inappropriate thing I can say to Mr. R every week?” (Not sharing the joke that warranted that response)

A longer joke

A month or two ago someone was putting blue pharmaceutical stickers labelled ‘for rectal use only’ on a lot of stuff. While the nature of this prankster (who was never found) wa sinnocent, the stickers left behind a lot of sticky stuff on whatever surface they were applied on. Both of the club’s coaches gave the entire club a warning on the destructive actions of this prankster. Later, one of the coaches went around interrogating individual team members and someone said something I’ll never forget -
“Mr. R, its not a problem anymore! I ran out of blue stickers so I think we’re all good now.”
