Default Faculty Roast

The first two years I was at the lab, the third year graduate students held a graduate student party, which functioned both as a holiday party and as a faculty roast. At these parties we got to make fun of the faculty and watch them do outrageously funny things. Greg Hannon and Scott Lowe sang a lovely rendition of "I've got you babe," Sonny and Cher costumes and all.
Winship Herr, paraded down a makeshift runway wearing women's clothing, including a bra and high heels. There was a whipped cream fight one year after Lincoln Stein refused to sit in a chair covered in whipped cream as part of a game of musical chairs. And who can forget Yuri Lazebnik doing pirouettes in tutu! One year when Jim Watson attended (January 2003), he participated in a game of Twister, although it was clear that no one playing knew the rules of the game, it was still funny to watch all the participants fall down! After all of the hard work in the lab, these parties were a great way to let loose!
